Had very bad food poising. Hotel refused to do anything. Said they need to investigate with the kitchen first. We were unable to do any of the planned tours for the day. Food in general is horrible. We came here with 4 families and everyone has very bad food experience.

I can't say how amazing this hotel was!!! We absolutely loved it! Upon walking in you arrive in an open air lobby with breathtaking views. The common spaces and the guest rooms have the most beautiful wood detail everywhere. The rooms are huge with vaulted ceilings and enormous windows, even the bathroom is spectacular!! Enormous Jacuzzi with gorgeous woodwork all...

The hotel is fabulous with so many activities.. swimming, enjoying the hot springs, a water slide, tubing, horseback riding, a zoo, hiking, fishing, etc. The grounds are fabulous, our villa was amazing, and the staff is exceptional! I wish we had 4 nights here instead of 3.

We stayed there one night to enjoy the hot springs and the place was almost empty since it was in September. It was great!!! Waking up with the view of the volcano is so amazing, the staff is very nice. We really liked it there, perfect place to relax and enjoy all the services of the hotel. Maybe a bit...

We did not stay here but opted for the 2 day Hot Springs Pass that gave us access to the Hot Springs and it was worth it!! We also went to the Club Rio that has an animal tour and it was worth it. Not only did we get to enjoy the Hot Springs for 2 days, we opted to...

We had 2 rooms with views of Arenal that were absolutely stunning. The design was luxurious, but uncluttered and with comfort as the obvious focus. Despite numerous activities available on the property and in the area, we found ourselves looking forward to returning to the room nightly. The bathrooms were large, well-designed, and had ample storage. Beds were comfortable and,...

Grounds are impeccable. Pools are incredible. While the hotel was almost completely full, it still seemed quaint. No rush to get seats at the pools, there was plenty of seats. We were in a honeymoon suite plus and the view was priceless. Restaurants were wonderful and not as expensive as I thought they would be. They arranged our transportation to/from...

This resort is cozy and beautiful. The promised scenic views don't disappoint and the service is fantastic. Plenty of accommodations for gluten free food options. If you struggle with stairs, it's a little tough as there are a lot stairs to get to the Springs and pool areas. All the onsite and offsite excursions were great. Recommend the sanctuary tour....

Just returned from a 3 night stay. One word- AMAZING!!! Don't let the road leading into the property fool you, it's worth the humps and bumps! We stayed in the newer part of the hotel (vista room) and our views were just like those on a postcard. We saw numerous bird species right from our balcony, even while we relaxed...
