We stayed at this resort during the Arenal portion of our Costa Rica trip. Overall the hotel is very nice. The rooms were comfortable and there were great views. I think on most days (maybe even every day) it was overcast and the clouds were not high enough for us to see the top of the volcano unfortunately. We had a hot tub in our room as well that was good.
The best feature for the hotel for us is the kids pool / wading pool. We have a two year old and usually he either does not want to go into the pool because it is too deep or we have to be very careful and hold him when he goes by the pool. With the kids pool he can play by himself while we watch him and he had a great time! He spent so much time in the water with his toys.
The food at the restaurant and the pool side dining is good quality. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel restaurant, and a lunch at the pool side. Service is great.
We did have an issue one day where they ran out of pool towels and did not restock them for about half an hour or so, which was an inconvenience but not a big deal.
The hot springs that they have at the resort are very nice as well. Not too crowded so we never had an issue finding a spot to sit.
We requested a crib for our room for our son to sleep in and they brought a pack and play style crib which was sufficient.
Overall a great experience.
