The hotel is located right at the base of Arenal Volcano and is the closest large hotel to the city of La Fortuna. It takes about $6 to get to the city in a taxi. The cottages are spacious and well maintained. However they are lacking in some essentials - hair dryer and iron+ironing board. And I mean it when I say essentials. It rained almost all the time while we were here. And we could not find a way to dry our hair, clothes and coats. There were only 2 hair dryers at the front desk and they were never available. The hotel could not turnaround laundry less than 24 hours. I guess we could have packed more swimsuits and lots of spare clothing, but we like to travel light. But we were not the only ones with this dilemma.
The food was average - breakfast or dinner buffet. The folks at front desk were somewhat indifferent to guest requests. They didn't seem to be making any attempts to help us out with problems - either a tour inquiry or requests for one of the 2 hair dryers on the property. The restaurant staff could have been more courteous - might have been the sheer number of guests during the time.
