This resort is so beautiful and relaxing. I had the worst flight experience of my life and my luggage was lost permanently yet this place was so calming it was impossible to stay mad. You can see the Arenal Volcano as you walk through the hotel grounds. There is tons of beautiful plants and birds. The private thermal pool was... More

We couldn't of asked for a better hotel. The breakfast every morning was a nice surprise - fresh juices, fruits and local food, all free with your stay! I already miss the thermal pool and happy hour at the swim up bar. The multiple pools and hot tubs were a great way to unwind from our days of hiking. Everyone... More

Pros -quick and friendly check in. Had pool table, foosball table in lobby, ample parking, secure parking lot, beautiful property, one of the most aesthetically pleasing properties from the road we passed, plenty of pools and hot springs. Great view of volcano when not cloudy (like literally it was like there was a volcano in the backyard, so neat). Hotel... More

My boyfriend and I came to travel Costa Rica starting here and it was amazing! The breakfast is spectacular with lots to choose from, the staff was very helpful in catering to us and finding great tours and the entire environment was beautiful! If you're lucky, you'll get great views of Arenal. It's rainy season so when we had breakfast... More

My family works on the hotel business, so we can be picky about hotels. But this place was pretty great, and the springs were so unique to anything we could experience in the states.

Very nice hotel and springs, we had a Thermal Superior room, and the experience was fantastic! The Thermal Spring Pool at our terrace was a really nice touch, it worths the extra payment for the room. Breakfast was delicious and with very good choices to select from. Nice location with close view of the volcano.

The pool and hot springs were a highlight - we used them every night after our daily excursions. The hotel offers a fantastic view of Arenal Volcano.
