Our stay here was booked through Gecko travel so we didn't know what to expect. We couldn't have done better. The hotel is beautifully situated with views of the lake and lovely grounds. The hosts -Dan and Suzy-are amiable and helpful (to the point of lending us money so we could visit the cash only Gingerbread restaurant the first night. And the breakfasts each morning are hand crafted and unique. Although the hotel is a little isolated from main attractions like the volcano, it presents a much more restful and beautiful option than all the hotels along the strip nearer Arenal. Plus the Gingerbread next door is one of the better restaurants we found in all of Costa Rica. Highly recommended.
