In general, we had a great stay. The hotel is beautiful and the breakfast was good. The only thing is that someone took my son's folding chair at your hotel. We remember putting it in the room to go to the hot springs. When we came back it was gone. We checked everywhere. That is the only part we didn't... More

Hi/ Hola Ana Thank you so much for taking your valuable time for sharing this comment. What you wrote here really concerned us; because when you told us about your missed folding chair, you said that it could be around the room, may be outside of it; and we try to help you for finding it; but in case that...

There are many luxury resorts around Mount Arenal. We have not had the opportunity to stay in any of the other ones. However we found the staff here extremely friendly and the amenities fabulous. There are no less than five pools and several natural hot springs pools, One with a swim up bar. Breakfast is included with your room and... More

If there's anything better than having bogof cocktails served to you whilst you relaxing in hot springs overlooking a volcano then I don't know what it is. This was a lovely hotel with helpful and friendly staff. I would certainly recommend it to anyone.

We stayed here for 2 nights but I wish we could have stayed longer. The property is set at the base of the Arenal volcano and is just outside of downtown. The rooms were clean, well equipped, and very modern. They have a small store on the property to pick up snacks or souvenirs. They have several hot springs and... More

We stayed 3 nights here. Our ground floor room had a beautiful garden view with lots of bird life visible from our veranda with a good pair of binos. The staff, as almost universally everywhere in Costa Rica, were charming. The maid arranged fresh towels in animal sculptures on our bed every day sprinkled with fresh flowers, so we were... More

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

Great view of volcano when not cloudy (like literally it was like there was a volcano in the backyard, so neat). Hotel... More

We really liked this hotel, I'd very clean and well conserved; food and attention is excellent, it has nice views and a thermal pool which is really relaxing If you are traveling from San Jose, I recommend to rent a car, driving is really safe and easy

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
