This was one of my favorite places we stayed excluding the resturant. Laying in bed staring at Volcan Arenal and looking at all the jungle gardens. It just doesnt get better than this. This is a gated hotel with plenty of security. I think this is why all the old people like it here.
Very clean comfortable rooms. A/C was nice too.
What I didn't like: Restaurant was not cheap and food was average. Service was the pits. You had to beg someone to wait on you. It was like they pretended to be busy when there was only three couples in the place at any given time. Also the pool was right next to the resturant which made it strange for both swimmers and old people staring at you at the restaurant.
I have no problem with the elderly (I,ll be there soon enough) but it was like being on vacation at a retirement home. I think they need to expand there target market and get some young people to stay.
