Stayed here two nights on Caravan tour. The volcano is only visible 30% of the time--so, be prepared for a nice view of: fog or clouds. Rooms nice, clean, spacious. They do not tell you when you check in that the second controller in your room is for the a/c---we didn't know that until we were ready to check out.
Restaurant is okay, but staff has to be asked to refill water glass, give you silverware, etc.
One funny moment. As we got ready to sit at one table we noticed it was covered in crawling ants. I called the waiter and said, "There are a couple of hundred ANTS on this table." He shrugged and said, "There are ants all over Costa Rica" and walked away unconcerned.
The "business center" amounts to one computer in a cramped, tiny lobby. Desk clerks were mildly attentive but seemed like they were not thrilled to be there.
Pool looks great, and LOTS of folks seemed to enjoy the swim up bar. Lovely grounds and landscaping around pool. The road in front is narrow and walking to grocery store or shops kinda scary since traffic passes so close and is so fast Maybe a taxi is better.
So, clean rooms, great pool, nice balcony, all in all an okay place.
