The individual cabins were romantic, quiet, well designed and the housekeeping staff displayed great creativity in creating hearts, animals and towel creations for our stay. The food served at the restaurant was delicious, well priced and all of the staff went out of their way to accomodate your every request. I stayed in 5 different hotels while visiting Costa Rica...

Wonderful staff. Gave me a free massage and upgrade to a larger casita. nice pool w bar area. Not many dining options, but includes fabulous breakfast buffet. They can arrange tours as well. I went to the hanging bridges park for bird watching. Stay in casita far off the road facing the volcano. Would go there again!

Traveling with an Overseas Adventure Travel group of 15, we loved this hotel, with a magnificiant view of Arenal. The grounds were gorgeously landscaped and our suite was really huge -- a big sitting room, entranceway, small kitchenette, large bedroom, huge bathroom with Jacuzzi, and small patio. The sheets were nice, the mattress (finally) had a mattress pad, there were... More

Stayed for 2 nights in December 2010. I expected much more for the money spent. I left my shower sandals on at all times to avoid touching the floor. It poured rain the entire time and was quite cool. No heater in the room meant that we froze under the blankets. The outdoor pool with swim up bar obviously means... More

Virtually nothing worked properly in our room from the coffee pot to the shower. The rooms have been poorly designed in order to look updated but have had little to no maintenance.
