My wife, daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights over new year 2012. This hotel is comprised of 50+ cabins set on a large property adjacent to Volcan Arenal. The cabins are quite private as they are set a good distance apart. They are well appointed and have a huge shower (honestly you could turn it into another bedroom!). We didn't have any problems with our booking and our check in and check out process were flawless. The hotel is a fair way out of town down the end of a very long driveway (road) so if you haven't got your own car then you will need to catch taxis everywhere. Taxis are plentiful and not too expensive. The buffet breakfast is OK without being great and the buffet dinner is in the same category. We were a bit disappointed that they didn't plan anything special for new years eve, especially as they are out of town a bit. The staff were very friendly and helpful. WiFi is available in the dining room and reception area and sometimes in the cabins (the closer to reception the better). We had a cabin that was up a fairly short but very steep hill and getting to and from the reception area gave us our exercise. On the plus side was that we had an uninterupted (and if no clouds) stunning view of the volcano from our back verandah.
Tour buses stop at this hotel so you need to time your breakfast and dinner times to avoid the crowds when the bus is in.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again but I would have my own car next time.
