Individual chalet-style accommodation in beautifully-landscaped gardens. Free access to the thermal pools of various temperatures (don't bother paying to go elsewhere to soak in hot water - it's all included here).
The spa facilities (massage etc) are open from 1pm, so don't try to plan an early-morning pummelling. The restaurant served good food, and the breakfasts were ample and freshly-prepared. Having said that, if you are staying for more than a couple of nights you will probably want to explore elsewhere for dinner.
Staff were friendly and attentive, and helped organise trips / tours.
This hotel is (mercifully) about 5 minutes' drive (cab fare 5,000 colones / $8) outside the main La Fortuna strip with its multitude of mainly tacky bars, restaurants and shops. It has peace and solitude to help you recuperate from all of the wild activities in the area (see our other reviews!)
