This place has beautiful landscaping, acres of rain forest to roam, horses to ride, an expert guide to lead you on a journey of discovery, spotless and lovely rooms, a gorgeous lobby, restaurant and bar with miles of windows looking over the amazing gardens complete with a pool and jacuzzi, helpful and friendly staff, an absolutely incredible view of the Arenal volcano...with a nice breakfast included. This place is out of the way ( which I found perfect) and at the end of a long,bumpy curvy road (well worth it). The food is decent but not spectacular by any means. If you aren't planning on being out running around, I would suggest bringing some snacks and drinks along. And be sure to meet the resident Macaw, Stephanie.
