This hotel is at the tipping point. It could go either way at this point. It's a little seedy and maintenance is at the best, lacking. Several parts of our room and patio needed repair and had been patched without fixing the problem. No Wi-Fi in the room , so lobby only for using their computer. Rooms are not dark-curtained since the dark curtains were removed and never replaced so get ready for break-of-dawn rising. Rooms light up like the surface of the sun at about 6 a.m. or earlier
Restaurant staff hasn't yet mastered the English language causing some very difficult moments, for instance, waiter tells us US$16.00 but later brings bill for US$60.00 for shrimp! A/c in room never quite got cool so sleeping was not an easy thing.
On the plus side...we were there in late August and had few fellow residents so the pool was empty and the restaurant was clear each time we went. The complimentary breakfast was more than adequate with made-to-order omelets and a very good buffet. We recommend the zipline tour from the hotel. Rooms are very spacious (room 267 was ours) but the showers lack shower curtains and the window curtains allow too much light in even at night from the security lights. The view of Volcan Arenal is absolutely breathtaking. Be sure to pet the dog on the way to the office.
