We stayed here for two nights. The owners are very pleasant. The tico style breakfast with coffee outdoors by the pool is complementary and excellent. We had been searching online for a place that was relatively isolated and quiet because we wanted a jungle experience. This place is lush and green with a variety of tropical birds and a view of Arenal Volcano a short distance from our little cabana. If you're are looking for a place that is isolated, however, this is not the place for you. It is located on a quiet lane way outside a very busy tourist area. Also, we were awakened at 5:45 a.m. to the sound of two men installing a tin roof on a home next door which, lasted well into the morning. Other than that, this place is very good value for the money.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located at the base of the Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica (2.5 kms. from La Fortuna, on the road to Catarata Rio's Fortuna and only 15minutes by car from Tabacon's Hot Springs) with a spectacular view of the southeast side of the volcano, we have the advantage of being at a slightly higher altitude than La Fortuna, thus cooler. Also, we are off the main road enough to avoid the sound of grinding gears that are audible from almost all other hotels. The rooms are very spacious (32m2) with 1 double and 1 single bed, a large private bath with hot water, screened windows, ceiling fans, verandas with table and chairs, and landscaped grounds abundant with tropical flowers and birds. Full breakfast, available lunches, horse rental, laundry, internet service and secure parking lot. ... more less
