Basic but nice accommodations. We enjoyed happy hour drinks in the hot spring pool - didn't need to spend $$ at Tabacon for a dip in the hot springs. Reasonable rate for time of year. Nice breakfast included with reservation.

The location was great! It is half way between La Fortuna and Arenal National Park. Our room was pretty standard, but it was very clean and pretty modern. The best part about staying here was the grounds. We were able to open the door of our room and look out onto a garden area with the base of the Volcano...

I was there with a significant other and there were too many kids around. The walls are paper thin. I could hear neighbors throw up at night and doors open and close. The room and its backyard was nice.

You cannot go wrong with this beautiful property. The staff greeted us with a great attitude and the restaurant was more than willing to feed us as we arrived late. Then we went to our room, more like a private little bungalow, I loved it! very clean, little towel decoration on the bed and more than ample room for all...

The flowers and birds we saw just walking from our room to the front desk were breathtaking. The hotel's attention to detail is awesome, their breakfast is delicious, the open air restaurant and lobby are enchanting. We got lucky one day when all the clouds cleared up and got an amazing view of the smoking volcano. Rooms are not luxurious...

We loved the place! Nice, clean, spacious rooms, excellent attention in details on behalf of the front desk, bar, restaurant and room staff. And the hot springs, lovely and beautifully clean! They provide maintenance to the srpings every day which make the pools (can't stress it enough) clean and comfortable. We are definitely going back!!!!!!!

For an officially 3 star hotel, I thought the overall quality was close to 4 stars. We got a Junior Suite. A basket of snacks and a bottle of wine, champagne and two beers were waiting for us. I could tell the furnishing wasn't the highest quality and I didn't like the fluorescent lights in the room, but it got...
