Beautiful setting, away from the main road in a wonderful garden with magnificent views of the Arenal volcano. The resort is arranged as a set of wooden houses with 2 independent en-suite rooms each. The grounds and rooms are kept immaculately clean. The gardens alone are a treat with a surprising variety of different plants. Some friendly animals can be...
