This place worked out really well. We stayed in room 5 which is a double deluxe. Two good sized bed and a bathroom with a good shower. Also good to have a quiet air con and fan to ensure a good night sleep. Super views of the volcano. We used the restaurant a few times and as noted by others... More

This is a small hotel, "Inn" is a bit of a misnomer, it's definitely a tightly run operation with guards, etc. It's a bit pricey too, and the bar tab is the highest we paid in CR. The location is perfect - right between La Fortuna and Arenal, so attractions are nearby. The rooms are very nice and ours had... More

This was a great hotel with a view of the Arenal volcano, and an extremely accommodating list of staff. Our room was a building all to its self, and it was incredibly spacious.

We stayed here 3 nights. The rooms were decent and the grounds were beautiful. However, the restaurant is incompetent. They totally ruined two of our meals. I could go into detail, but I'd be writing a novel. Also, be careful in the pool. Both of my children got ear infections. Would have rated it 4 stars if not for the... More

This hotel was located in the exact area we were looking for, without being in the grungy looking town with weird one-way streets. The rooms were immaculate, and had more to offer with amenities than expected. The hot springs were very close, and fun to relax in after traveling all day. Dinner at the restaurant was great, as was the... More

This hotel was a great find on our road trip from Playas del Coco to Arenal to see the volcano. It is about 6 km. outside of La Fortuna and after a spectacular drive around Lake Arenal and lunch in La Fortuna, we backtracked to find accommodation with a view. This utterly charming inn fit the bill in every way.... More
