We stayed here for three nights. The property is beautiful and offers stunning views of the volcano. Our room offered a refrigerator, microwave and air conditioning though the nights were cool enough it was not needed.
The room was perfectly sufficient for a mid price hotel. Two chairs outside the door were a nice touch. The pool was cool but not bad. Our son swam alot without complaint. Food and drink at the onsite restaurant was decent and moderately priced. Do not miss the free nature hike with Miguel. This was a very informative and fun hike for our family. We saw wildlife we would have walked right by if not for Miguel. Horseback riding was alsp available but we ran out of time. This is a cool place that is definitely worth a stay if in the La Fortuna area.
