While the hotel itself might not be in the best of its shape, their friendly and helpful staff will make you feel very welcomed.
The own a nice brewer machine where they experiment with good and fresh flavors taken from their own orchard.
There is a 6ft pool with a spa adjacent to it, where they also offer massages. A skatepark (dont know why yet) and obviously the activities of the season in the lake (windsurf, standup paddle, etc)
Close by town offer the best of fresh fruits and art craft.
PS: I do recommend a very local and humble "soda" called La Macha...best local typical food I have tasted...after my mom`s that is. It is 10 min away from the hotel, towards nuevo arenal
