"Location" etc. Like most hotels in the area, this one sits at the foot of the very active Arenal Volcano and despite the daily clouds/rain (still rainforest after all) you will probably not be disappointed by the lava flow at night. Two leather-seated wood rocking chairs sit outside the back door of your room so you can watch the lava flow. Once it is dark, you will see the red lava pour out of the top of the volcano and every so often a larger eruption flows down beyond the tree line so you lose sight of it. With that kind of view, you won't care too much about the rooms! Still, the hotel is very comfortable and clean, large rooms, and outstanding towel swans decorate the bed; flowers were added the next day. I turned on one wall light and it fell to the ground. Most lighting in CR was perhaps less than what Americans have at home. Satellite TV at this hotel with several American channels. Beautiful well-decorated and manicured grounds; very big, nice swimming pools and hot tubs. Nearby Hidalgo Family Hot Springs (if you can get in) are fabulous pools of body soothing warm waters heated by the volcano. Eat in nearby LaFortuna if you can except for the included breakfast.
