As noted by another reviewer, the website makes it look like a much more substantial resort, when (at least currently) it's really a small, simple hotel. Our taxi driver couldn't find the place, so be sure to bring directions; use La Fortuna Waterfall as a landmark. The room was clean and had a small fridge and a small safe (not large enough for a 13" laptop), plus a nonworking TV. The closet area had cubbyholes where you can put your clothing. The shower had good pressure, and shampoo and soap were provided. Unfortunately wifi did not work in our room, which was at the far end of the hall from the lobby, so we had to sit in the lobby in order to use the Internet. The website made it seem as though there would be bugs everywhere, including in our room (because they say they don't use insecticide), but that turned out to not be a problem. We didn't hear any noise through our walls, but we weren't actually sure there were any other guests in the rooms next to ours. The "restaurant" in the hotel is not a real restaurant where anyone other than hotel guests would come to eat. Sample breakfast is a nice fruit plate (watermelon, pineapple, papaya, and banana), rice and beans, egg, plantain, cheese, and toast. We ended up taking taxis into town for dinner. Someone at the front desk will call a taxi when you need one, and they can also set up tours for you. A car would be helpful, but be aware that the road to the hotel is steep and very rocky. Our hosts spoke some English, but a little Spanish will make communication easier. The pool is somewhat small but pleasant with a peaceful setting.
