I was really nice. This was my second time in this hotel. And we really love the place. There are just a few things: 1. We arrived the hotel at morning, and the staff told us our rooms would be available at 1 pm. We were going to be hosted in three different rooms. One of them were ready at...

Stayed here January 7-11. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Booked as part of a tour package, and knew it would be a 3 1/2-rated resort, it certainly lived up to that standard. Really liked the bungalow-style rooms, with their skylit showers. The service here is excellent, which I now know is wonderful trait of the Costa Rican people. Our package...

The room are like little duplex units with a car parking and small front porch area. The grounds is very clean and green....Our room was very modern, within...

The place is very nice to look at, but I found that the staff lies to your face. It took 3 tries to repair broken air conditioning that was busted the day we got there. We left a day early, gave them 24 hours notice, and now they refuse to refund our money, claiming we have to pay a penalty......

The pros: The staff is very accommodating, helpful, and friendly. The grounds are amazingly beautiful, especially if you are lucky enough to see Arenal in the backdrop of this very picturesque setting. We were there in November, heart of the rainy season, and still got to see it completely out 1 of the 3 days we were there, the rest...

This was an excellent hotel. The rooms were small but I liked that they were bungalow style. Needed chits in rooms so you don't have to sit on beds. Gardens were beautiful and the hot springs pools were awesome. The pool Bar served up great drinks try the BBC and thank me later

Hi - we were immediately turned off by the request to wear plastic blue wristbands when checking in. This likely tainted our view. Staff was friendly & attentive, accommodations were clean. No issues at all there. Restaurant was very expensive, which we expected...but the quality of the food did not measure up.

This was listed as a 3* hotel in our Trailfinders bespoke travel pack, but very comfortably exceeded our expectations for a variety of reasons. I'll list the top five, and couple of minor not-so-good points: 1. Food and drinks - See photos of some of the food. I had chicken loaded with giant prawns in avocado one night, and the...

Was there during in 2013 and found the pools delightful. Each with a varying degree of heat, some VERY HOT, most quite refreshing. If memory serves, there was also an area where there was heated rocks that acted very much like a sauna. Highly recommended. It was only a day trip to the spa.
