We booked through JetSet, a wonderful choice, and got a "Superior" room which was actually a suite with a living room and bedroom. Rooms were clean - couch in living room a bit dated. This was the first resort in the area. Room had a safe, nice bath. The maid did the most artistic arrangement of the daily clean towels I have ever seen, once an elephant and once a pig. The view from the room was spectacular - great view of the Arenal volcano. There were miles and miles of grounds, with a guided walk each morning. The room came with a buffet breakfast with a large number of selections. The dining room overlooks some beautiful grounds, and raised bird feeders are right in front of the windows. During breakfast, the feeders are loaded with cut fruit which attracts a wonderful and colorful mix of birds. We ate dinner there once - I had the steak, my wife had the bass. Both were good. The lodge is quite a distance from the nearest town, la fortuna, and most of the attractions such as the hot springs. We had a wonderful stay and I highly recommend it..
