To be fair, the staff was very responsive in coming to fix anything I complained about (broken bathroom mirror and toilet seat), but there were other things that... More

Room was clean and spacious. Bed was a little hard. Bathtub on balcony was original. Hotel grounds were vast and offered great vegetation and some animals. Breakfast was very good. Staff very friendly.

Accommodations were right for us and even though the rooms are a bit dated and have no drawers we managed quite well. Main issue is that you are a $12... More

Title says it all. Had to move rooms in the middle of the night due to a swarm of army ants. Staff is great, infrastructure is dated. Having never been to CR before, not sure if this is the "standard" in hotel accommodations. Would not stay here again, cannot recommend this hotel except for the staff and the food which... More

Most all views were dominated by awesome Vulcan Arenal. The accommodations I stayed in was the master deluxe suite. It had rustic Costa Rica furnishings very comfortable bedding and very ample...

Love the Spanish style cabin feel of the room plus waterfall shower. mountain paradise, secluded feel of the outdoor area was special. Very tropical, beautiful gardens, and pool area. Meals were great and staff was wonderful. We loved it and would stay here again.

Rooms are typically furnished Costa Rica style with rustic furniture. Rooms are isolated and the walk from room to room is beautiful. The view of the volcano from the room is amazing. Breakfast is delicious over looking the volcano is great.
