First, the caveat. As other reviews have noted, you are a bit out from town, so unless you have a car or don't mind a healthy walk (that's what we did), you may want something closer to town or in a more inclusive resort sort of place. I'm guessing if you are looking at this review, you don't fall in that latter group. The rooms (we stayed in 2 different ones because we extended our stay in Arenal) were both great. Comfortable, clean, nicely decorated, hot shower. No complaints. Breakfast was your typical Costa Rican b&b breakfast of eggs, toast, gallo pinto, and fruit. There is a small pool that we never used, but it's nice to have options. This b&b also has a great little gift shop attached to it with a wide variety of products. There is a also a great Italian food / pizza place attached. I really can't comment on anything but the pizza since it was so good we had it twice. I believe the exact one we had was called the Diabolic. If you like spicy and you like pizza, you might have it twice too :) Finally, the staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all, a fantastic value and highly recommended.
