We spent two nights at this location as part of an Air Canada Vacations Ecotour in March 2014.
Our room had a wonderful view of the Arenal Volcano from our balcony, which also had a table and 2 chairs, which was great for sitting outside and relaxing. I recommend that you keep the drapes closed and the light off, however, as many bugs are attracted to the light. Inside, the room was "OK". There was wall damage where a safe was once located, and there was a large empty cupboard in the room, where a mini-fridge may have been once located.
We ate breakfast in the restaurant both mornings, which was a decent buffet with good service. We did not eat any other meals here.
The pool area was small, but relaxing nonetheless. We found the pool bar service to be "OK", certainly nothing spectacular.
The hotel is a 30 minute walk from town, which is safe, but one section of the road is dark near a farm. I would recommend a flashlight to some extra light, expecially as the sidewalks are not in great condition. We enjoyed going into town, eating at some of the local restaurants and browsing through the shops.
Overall, a nice hotel. I wouldn't rush back here, but it was fine for what we needed, as we were gone for most of the day and spent our evenings in town.
