The hotel is dated but charming and priced fairly....the views were spectacular. We are sorry we missed the train ride, but had to move on. I am posting a comment because of other comments about the food. Our breakfast at Dos Heroes was perhaps the best of our two week visit to Costa Rica.

After a night at the beautiful and famous Tabacon Hot Springs & Spa, we drove along Lake Arenal and came across Hotel Los Heroes. We only spent one night but could have settled for a whole vacation if we had had more time. The architecture, the landscaping, the scenery are stunning. The quaint little train is a gem. The service...

What an great surprise! Last November, I visited Los Heroes with a large news media group from Switzerland. Lots of nostalgia and surprises: rides on a Mini Glacier Express Train and on an Old-Time Swiss Postal Motocoach plus a delicious lunch with wine at the only Rotating Restaurant in all of Central America The industrious owner Franz Ulrich, his wife...

We stayed at this great little Swiss themed hotel for the second time this January. We were a party of 6 and booked the second floor apartment and ajoining room. The price was great, the hotel staff is very helpful and the restaurant has great food. As if that wasn't enough, they have a small train that takes you up...

A charming hotel with enjoyable food and decor! The people who own is have made the creation of this "park" their life's ambition and the are very proud of it. For sure don't miss the fantastic train ride, if you like seeing fabulous scenery and rare birds that abound in the trees overhead. The train arrives at the rotunda restaurant...

My husband and I stumbled upon Los Heroes on a drive around Lake Arenal. We planned to stay 1 night, but ended up staying 2 because it was so charming, and 100% authentic. The owner imported everything from Switzerland (he is from Luzern) including a train. There is a 3 km train that runs from the hotel up a hill...

My experience at Hotel Los Heroes was pleasant. Of course, I was so excited to go to Tabacon (the nearby hot springs resort) that I could have easily overlooked some flaws. The inside decor is definitely dated, but our room was clean. The grounds were clean; the pool was crystal clear. It's a nice, basic hotel. No frills, but pleasant.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It looks like an attractive swiss chalet from the outside but don't be fooled, the rooms, food and service is appalling. I have never come across anything like it in 25 years of travelling! We had an apartment away from the main hotel with a wonderful view across Arenal lake,...
