We were greated by the friendly owner of the hotel. The man assisting her at the front desk was welcoming and helpful throughout our trip. Our room was up a hill but they had a driver take us up to the room and if you wanted a ride they had young men driving golf carts around to assist you at most times. Our room seemed private although I think the building had 8-10 rooms in it and we had a direct view of the volcano out of our patio door. The room was large, tidy and was nicely furnished with a Costarican theme. The bathroom was beautifully tiled and the shower was large.There were nice pathways and trails throughout the property so you have plenty of opportunity to enjoy the greenery and wildlife. The pool and swim up bar were lovely. It may have seemed a bit small but considering the resort only houses 40 or so rooms then it seems large! Our meals at the restaurant were always good although you have to keep in mind it is not fast food. The breakfast buffet was a great way to start the day-nothing fancy but a great way to start. If you do not have a car and your activity is not real close by then you have to call a taxi which can be expensive. If your activity is close as the hanging bridges are, the hotel will provide your transportation free of charge. We got along fine without a car and may have gone into town one more night if we had our own vehicle but we were satisfied with a later evening at the pool and dinner at the restaurant on the resort. We would definetly go back and stay there. The owner has really created quite a place at this resort!
