Which we were, on our first morning! Fabulous view of the whole volcano. We had a huge but very well appointed room which was extremely comfortable for our 3 night stay. This hotel is quite large but we hardly saw anyone during the day and everyone is well distributed over the

I was a little disappointed. As part of our honeymoon we decided to visit Costa Rica, specifically Nayara Springs, just because the reviews and photos were amazing. Unfortunately, Nayara Springs was fully booked for the first two nights so we booked the Rainforest Villa then the

Other than the price, what is the primary difference between the Rainforest Villa and the Casita Deluxe?
We stayed in the rainforest villa. Besides the size and adults only I can only comment on how clean and well appointed the rooms were. We honestly could easily stayed in the smaller rooms with two people. It was a very relaxing trip.

You can access all the restaurants in either side of the resort. The villa are adult only and they deliver breakfast to you room as an option if you wish to not go sit at the restaurant. There are a lot of food options to suit everyone. We went to the tapa and wine bar which was great. Their coffee house was also excellent. They roast their own coffee beans on site.

"Villa 10 where we stayed was amazing."
"They are all excellent set in the amazing grounds with a view of Arenal volcano"
"Rooms on the far edge are quieter, but further away from the pools and spa. Golf cart rides easily available though ."
"The grounds are hilly nearer the facilities is better"
"Rainforest Villa room - well worth the upgrade"
