When we first arrived, we were amazed that we would be staying in such a beautiful place. The gardens are amazing and the rooms are spread out over one level so you get a private and peaceful feel. Lovely brick walkways through the gardens lead you from your room to the pools, front desk building, restaurant and parking lot. Our room was spacious and clean with a nice patio with rocking chairs, perfect for enjoying the relaxing sounds of frogs in the evening. All of the staff people we encountered (from restaurant wait staff to garden keepers) were very friendly and personable. The food, drinks, pools, and hot tubs were luxurious. We had perfect views of Arenal Volcano from our room and the restaurant. We felt spoiled while at the same time very much surrounded by the beautiful nature of Costa Rica. We will definitely stay here again!
