We were treated to a wonderful two night stay at this hotel. Our travel to Arenal included a boat ride across the lake to La Fortuna which offered us spectacular views of the area. We also we greeted with clear skies and picture perfect view of the entire volcano. The views from the room were amazing. The rooms are very large, well appointed and perfectly arranged to allow you to view the volcano from the chairs, bed or in-room hot tub. The grounds of the hotel property are lovely. We really enjoyed the hot springs.
Service by all the staff was exceptional. We enjoyed spending a couple of hours by the pool one morning. We could not locate any towels, but a gardener saw us sitting on the lounge chairs and brought us towels. We had an early morning departure and the front desk manager opened the gift shop for our group which was much appreciated by all.
The restaurant was our only negative due to the noise level. It offered beautiful views, but because of the design it was extremely noisy. You had to shout to talk to others at the table. For the high prices on the food and wine we would have enjoyed a more pleasing experience and food could have been better.
