I've never experienced anything like it. The swim... More

Let me start off by saying my situation was very unique. I have 0 problem with the actual hotel. Very clean, great rooms with even better views, #302 was the best. great grounds, restaurants, and pool. If you are a solo traveler like myself this place may be a bit too romantic or too much for you with the waterfall... More

I really liked this hotel. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. The bathroom was gigantic-- with 2 showers, and the toilet in its own separate space with a door. There was a small outdoor patio with a hot tub, and you could see the Arenal volcano in the background. The restaurant was good but expensive. The grounds... More

Returning to Costa Rica wouldn't be right if I didn't come stay at this hidden gem! Beautiful views, AMAZING staff, very helpful! The tour amenities can't be beat and who doesn't like a heated pool! I recommend to all who travel here. You won't regret it! In fact, you'll feel like family!
