Absolutely amazing place! There is honestly nothing negative I can say. Every single staff member was exceptionally kind and helpful. They all went above and beyond to make you feel welcome. They always greeted you and asked how your day went and even offered to help schedule any excursions.
The location is great as it is just minutes from La Fortuna, which offers several restaurants, some souvenir shops, and many tour companies. Plus, you have an incredible view of the volcano.
The grounds are incredibly beautiful with all of the flora and fauna, but our absolute favorite part were the hot springs. Words or pictures just can't even do justice to how awesome everything is. The hot springs were so relaxing after a day of activities. We loved getting in them in the evenings with our tropical drinks (especially when it rained because it was great to feel the cool rain sprinkling on you while sitting in a warm pool). Four out of the five nights that we were there, we had one of the several hot springs all to ourselves.
The bungalows were very nice. The bathrooms offered a large shower and there was a very large vanity area outside of the bathroom. The beds were comfortable and we had free wi-fi in the room. Each unit had its own patio with a table and chairs. We used it a couple of nights to play cards.
There was even a small farm on the grounds where you could milk cows in the morning and help collect eggs from the chicken coop. Our daughter especially enjoyed that. She was eager to get up each morning just so she could go down to milk the cow.
Their free breakfast was great. There were several options to choose from on the menu, but our favorites were the omelettes and pancakes.
I just can't believe all this place had to offer for such an incredible price. I promise you that if you do decide to stay there, you will not be sorry. I would absolutely stay again if ever in the area.
