“Great deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This place was really great. Clean rooms and towel art by the maids. Fantastic view of the volcano from our porch. Beautiful grounds that are well maintained. Nice clean pool and Jacuzzi. Good breakfast buffet included. Very comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Very helpful front desk. They made calls and reservations for us several times in our 3 night stay. We had a car so location was not a problem though it is a bit out of town but close enough to drive back and forth in a few minutes. I would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone for the price.

My husband and I stayed here in June 2013. The grounds were beautiful and the staff helpful. Upon arriving, a wrist band is put on guests. I thought this was a little strange. The view of the volcano is great. The hotel is centrally located to all area attractions. No complaints!

Our hotel room was amazing with a breath taking view of Volcan Arenal. The staff was very helpful when we asked about expeditions and adventures. The staff at the resturant Sura are awesome. Food was delicious and had a great happy hr. Highly recommend this hotel :)

we stayed in room 309, an end-unit which had two full size beds, a patio view of the volcano, and close walk to the pool and restaurant. You pretty much can't get a better room. The gardens are a delight to walk through, featuring beautiful tropical flora,  birds and butterflies. We enjoyed happy hour at the pool, including the pool bar. The restaurant was very good. Only three small knocks: the rooms had no refrigerator, the "shuttle" to la Fortuna only ran once a day, and room walls are thin. The horseback riding and canopy tours they offered were both excellent and reasonably priced.

Our room had a spectacular view of the volcano (althugh it was covered in clouds most of the time). The property was lovely and well cared for. The included breakfast was quite good. The pools, and jacuzzi, very clean and well maintained. The location was perfect, just a few miles outside of towns edge, so it was easy to drive into town for dinner, and all of the attractions were easy to get to from the hotel. Maid service was very good, and left nice touches on the bed with creatively done elephants, and swans (from your fresh towels). The only complaint was no wifi in the rooms, you had to go out side or down by the restaurant. Highly recommended and a great deal for the price. We stayed 3 nights, and were quite satisfied. A note to couples travelling.....the walls are quite thin, and on several occasions we heard our very happy couple neighbors, enjoying "their time together".

Room Tip: we had room 209, great view

So happy to have chosen a quiet beautiful well maintained property that employs professionally minded staff that are helpful and happy. The breakfast area restaurant looks out onto the main attraction - the Arenal Volcano. WOW did we ever get lucky in choosing this as our first stop in Costa Rica.

The service at this hotel was very nice and most of the staff spoke English well. Our rooms were clean, but had a musty smell (because of the damp weather) and thin walls, so I could hear our neighbors talking late at night, and people outside. There are beautiful gardens and the pools and hot tubs are very clean. Also, there was a fantastic view of the Arenal volcano from right outside our patio. The complementary breakfast was excellent as well. The hotel is pretty close to some restaurants (walking distance) and just a taxi ride away from the center of town. We spent most of our time in La Fortuna taking organized tours of the area.
