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.

I really enjoyed this hotel! Checkin was fast. Breakfast was included. The rooms were simple, but served their purpose. 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. The grounds are extensive, and you are free to walk around and check out... More

Hotel is very easy to find on the road into La Fortuna. Check in was fairly quick. Arrived early and had to wait half an hour for our room which was fine. Hotel room was clean but dated. Made up of a bathroom, bedroom and a porch over looking the volcano which was stunning when the clouds moved out of... More

When you get near the Arenal area there are tons of hotels of all type, size and, I'm sure, price. I can't speak for the others in the area, but this place was very good. It has beautiful grounds and is secure. The restaurant has a fine out door breakfast where you can enjoy a morning meal along with lots... More

The views from our back patio can't be beat! We even had a clear view of the volcano after a hard rain, which I hear is rare. The staff is friendly and accommodating, especially the restaurant staff.

This was 1 of 6 places we stayed on our trip to Costa Rica, and while we were pleased with all of the hotels, this was the hands-down favorite! We expected it to be nice, but due to the relatively cheap price, we were in no way expecting everything what we got. Everything, starting from the reception area, to the... More

Great rooms. Pool, thermal pools, very efficient check-in and organisation of a tour, Would have happily stayed here a little longer. Only downside was trying to get something 'small' from the restaurant from lunch.

This is a five-star resort at the base of the Arenal Volcano. The rooms are modern, clean, and beautiful. The service in the restaurant is like being in Las Vegas. Breakfast is a treat, as they put out fruit to attract a dozen different species of birds. The hot springs are open 22 hours a day and feel fantastic, The... More
