All of it is surrounded by lush tries and flowers. Our villa had very spacious living area and big bathroom. Free Wi-Fi in your room. The only problem we...

We arrived on our motorcycles, hot and dusty, to this tropical paradise. the rooms modern and clean, all have a spectacular view of Arenal Volcano. The grounds are beautiful and well-kept. I did not eat dinner there but the breakfast provided was outstanding. I would go back!

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It's located about 10 minutes away from La Fortuna and 20 minutes from the Arenal Volcano park. It's also right across the street from El Benedicto's, a charming restaurant in a converted farmhouse up a windy narrow mountain road. It's also very close to numerous hot springs and the Sky Trek zip...

We enjoyed our stay. The hot springs are a nice small hot springs in an area that features very huge hot springs but it's free with the hotel. The restaurant is a bit pricey but the food is good. Not great, but good. The grounds are very spread out but are wonderfully landscaped. The pools are nice. All in all...

Most everything here was flawless...perfect....new. The grounds are immaculate...we saw many birds walking around the grounds and to/from the breakfast area. Example: saw two giant Crested Guans. The lobby area and our junior suite room were immaculate. The sliding glass doors in our room seemed brand new...very high quality and they worked perfect. I've stayed at a lot of hotels...
