“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Very clean and well-appointed rooms. Plenty of space to move around. Very nice pool. Lots of foliage growing throughout the property. Good value for the price. The only drawback is that the hotel is further from the main action, but only a 5 minute walk from shops and restaurants.

The Hotel is a bit outside of the main action, so it quiet and the place is well maintained. The room was clean and comfortable. For the price, it was perfect. They have a beautiful pool and a jacuzzy.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

We stayed two nights. This place is a beautiful oasis with views of Arenal volcano. Located a few miles west of La Fortuna, it is on the main road with plenty of small restaurants and a major market within walking distance. The rooms are very large with separate area for refrigerator, counter, and sink. High ceilings with tile throughout. Large grounds are beautifully manicured with lovely plants. The swimming pool and jacuzi were clean and very pretty. Rooms have ac, fan, t.v. Vilma is very welcoming and helpful. Budget pricing if you pay cash. It seems that a lot of lower priced hotels in Costa Rica do not want to take credit cards.

Very nice. Stayed even one night longer. Very clean . Simple but not too simple!! The room was very nice decorated. Had coffeemaker etc also!! Nice Restaurants nearby. Also the weather was not so good we could stay outside the house or could use the jakuzzi. Would definitely come again.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

We expect insects in CR hotels, thats just the way it is no matter where you go. However, this was to the point of traumatizing. The ants infested EVERYTHING. They were in the bed, on our stuff in the bathroom, our suitcases. They were crawling over all the walls, the bathroom, everything. We had to throw away all our food. We had to 'de-ant' our stuff by shaking stuff out throughout the day after we left, and up until that night when we got to Puntarenas. It was a very disturbing experience.

The hotel though is nice. The pool and hot tub are perfect and huge. The location is great. The lady at the front desk is really nice and friendly. The price was right ($40 in the off season)

If you decide to go here, check the room for ants!!! If it wasnt for the ants, we would highly reccomend this place.
