This hotel was great for our family. It was quiet and the gardens very pretty especially with the Volcano ever present in the background. My son enjoyed the ping-pong table. We all enjoyed their hot springs.
This beautiful location however sacrifices the proximity to la fortuna which was a hassle having to pay a taxi 8000 colones each way the equivalent to $16 one way into town! Thus when we would try to get dinner or lunch in la fortuna you had to factor in $32 on top of your meal or every time you went into town.
The hotel has a shuttle service that runs 2-5pm. This was not convenient enough for those looking to lunch or dinner in LA fortuna.
Having said that the hotel restaurant provides great meals. We just couldnt have casual-fine dining every night and wanted to try 'el typico'. Breakfast was included and is full buffet.
Stay here if you appreciate peace and quiet;the view;hot springs; want to stay and eat on the resort.. With minimal excursions to LA fortuna. Stay in La fortuna hotels if you feel you'll be going into town a lot.
The service is very good here.
A big Thanks to Felix at the front who checked us in AND found and returned my camera! Mucho Gracias!
