We had a 2 night stay here and it was fantastic, Arriving at the hotel, we were greeted with a fresh towel and after the hot journey from tortuguero it was very refreshing. Our room was one of the lower on the complex but it still had an amazing view of the volcano. With rocking chairs on a little porch...

Each cabin is an individual "resort" for you to enjoy. The rooms are somewhat basic, but have very comfortable beds, air conditioning (if you need it), and a main-en-suite bathroom. There is a small entry balcony. The hotel grounds have a graduated hot thermal water pools from the top to the bottom, getting cooler as you go down. There is...

Very nice clean place. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast buffet had a few different items each morning. Great food. The front desk was very helpful and even went out of their way to find us when we misread our pickup time for a tour. Each cabin is built with a view of the volcano. Across the street there is...

Highly recommend for families with kids. Very caring guides. Excellent views. Very safe! Good for first timers. Monkeys in trees. Great family adventure. Our 6 year old could do 2 short lines by himself. He'd been waiting our whole Costa Rican trip to zip line. It was a success. Guides were great!

We enjoyed the beautiful and well-maintained grounds, including the hot springs and the pool. A great place to heal my broken leg! Our rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. We slept very well. I enjoyed sitting on the patio in the chair listening to all the birds and seeing a clear view of the volcano. Breakfasts was...

Wonderful setting below Volcan Aranel. Gardens attractive and nicely set out. Cabins spacious, clean and well appointed. Hot springs a welcome facility in the afternoon after a day out. Certain amount of wildlife comes into the hotel gardens. There is a resident sloth in the tree by the restaurant, which I guess most people coming to Costa Rica want to...

Stayed here with a large group. The layout was different as we were all in separate cottages of sorts. The breakfast the next morning was great. But it stinks that the pools close at 10 and don't open until 10 the next day, so we didn't have time to even see them while we were there, which was a big...

We were initially placed in a cabin right at the end of the property which meant a relatively long walk to breakfast and the pools. Worse, because these cabins are divided into two rooms, with thin walls, we had to put up with the inconsiderate family next door watching deep voices Spanish TV loudly until past 2am, at which point...
