My wife and I spent two nights at this hotel in early July. This property has beautiful grounds and well furnished rooms. The staff is very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed speaking with owners son Philippe. He recommended a few places to eat and activities to do in the area. We tried a couple of his recommendatins and really liked them. The cabin is definitely rustic, perfect for the setting with a nice view of Arenal. It did have a television, refrigerator and air conditioning. Breakfast includes delicious pineapples,papaya and watermelon. A choice of either american breakfast(scrammbled eggs, ham and toast) or typical ( rice, black beans, fried yellow plaintains and vegetables. They also have cereal. Dinner included home cooked meals (cascado , pasta and fish). We enjoyed the on-site hot springs. The natural setting and warm water helped us to relax after a day of exploration in the area. There was also a nice pool area although we did not go in. For those looking for a natural, more tranquil setting, this may be the place for you. It's a little far from town so you need your own transportation.
