We stayed here two nights with our four kids. Carmen and Miguel and Carmencita could not have been any nicer! Due to the large size of our party, we had two side-by-side triple rooms - but that was the only concession we had to make. Carmen served a gorgeous, typical breakfast every morning in the midst of their tropical property. She chatted, and smiled as our children enjoyed the pool, fooseball, and even explored Carmencita's old childhood playhouse. Miguel helped size up our touring needs accurately and quickly, and recommended the best hikes and local hot springs and local restaurants that would be safe, but also give our kids a more local flavor that we were searching for. He was hilarious with his 3B's - Bueno, Bonito, Barato... all of his suggestions were nice, beautiful and inexpensive! Having backpacked through Central America in my twenties, this was an idyllic location in a working class neighborhood, that was safe and nice enough to bring our young kids. We couldn't have been more pleased! Thank you!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located at the base of the Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica (2.5 kms. from La Fortuna, on the road to Catarata Rio's Fortuna and only 15minutes by car from Tabacon's Hot Springs) with a spectacular view of the southeast side of the volcano, we have the advantage of being at a slightly higher altitude than La Fortuna, thus cooler. Also, we are off the main road enough to avoid the sound of grinding gears that are audible from almost all other hotels. The rooms are very spacious (32m2) with 1 double and 1 single bed, a large private bath with hot water, screened windows, ceiling fans, verandas with table and chairs, and landscaped grounds abundant with tropical flowers and birds. Full breakfast, available lunches, horse rental, laundry, internet service and secure parking lot. ... more less
