Friendly staff, washer dryer in the room which is a great help. Good buffet breakfast, great view of the arenal volcano. Easy commute to fortuna town, baldi springs, Eco glide tours, and others. Nice small pool and hot tub. Clean and spacious rooms. Not very crowded in the low season.

We spent 2 nights here during the rainy season. Met at the front desk by Diana who was 100% professional and helpful. She showed us to our room after we expressed trepidation due to the last 3 places we'd stayed having problems. Sure enough, the air conditioner didn't work. She immediately went back up to reception and got the key... More

Highly recommended for family or couples looking for a quiet and relaxing environment. Beautiful view of the volcano if you are in the higher units. Full breakfast are included, but don't forget to try the excellent handmade pizza. Super nice and friendly staff. They even packed breakfast for us as we are heading out for an early morning excursion.

If that doesn't mean anything to you it means I travel a lot, and stay at Marriott branded hotels more than 75 nights/year, including Ritz Carltons. I have never met a hotel staff I like... More

The hotel is set in lovely grounds with amazing views of the volcano. We were in the villa which had lovely rooms for the kids and us. The staff are amazing, making us and the kids feel really welcome. The pool, although small, was really enjoyed by the kids.

Just a beautiful place. I recently traveled to Costa Rica with a group of students on a community service trip. We stayed here only one night, and I really wish we could have stayed longer. The rooms are little "casitas", free standing buildings with two or three rooms in each. The beds were super comfortable, there was a refrigerator in... More
