This place was so wonderful. The view of Arenal is amazing, the private walking paths are great. The small private cabins were so nice, comfortable, air conditioned. The bathrooms were great, the beds were comfortable. The breakfasts were good, dinners a little less so. Lomas del Volcan's location can't be beat. The service was great, except for one bar tender who had a permanent attitude.
The one and only downside to this place is that they allow tour buses, or large tour groups of "missionaries" to eat at their restaurant--even though they did not appear to be staying at this location. This was very overwhelming at breakfast and dinner. These groups are usually teen aged children, with very little manners. They cut in line, they take all the food, they lick their fingers in between dishing out portions of food, and the only time they are quiet is when they are praying before they descend upon the buffet like the have been starved for months. Totally ruined breakfast on 2 out of 3 days.
