This is one of the better places we stayed when on our excursion across Costa Rica. We had quite the worldwin getting to this locations and arrived well before our check in time. They were sympathetic to our situation and allowed us to check in early and get sleep. The grounds were lush and beautiful with an array of different types of birds. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was very roomy. The beds were the most comfortable out of the whole trip. Having wifi was esscential for our friends who were with us since they needed to be connected in some way to work. For me, it was just an added bonus to connect to my family from time to time. The breakfast the first day was very plentiful, but the second day was lacking to the point where they barely had food to feed us. One of the attendents at the dinning room saw that there was no food left at the buffett but did not do a thing...just kept talking to other guests even though he clearly saw that we were confused. That was a disappointment. Also, they were building 3 more cabins next to ours, so it became a bit noisy, but nothing we couldn't handle. They had their own hot springs there which was nice. The location is great. We only got to see the volcano for maybe 3 hours before it was hidden by low stratus. But I can imagine on a nice sunny morning, the views much be amazing. With all this said, we really enjoyed our stay. We would definitely come back again...just make sure to provide enough food for all your guests.
