This is a wonderful resort hotel near the Arenal Volcano outside of the village of La Fortuna de San Carlos. The service was great, the rooms nice and free internet. It has a nice open air restaurant and pool and spa pool. It is near several thermal springs and is beautifully landscaped.

We spent 2 nights here during the rainy season. Met at the front desk by Diana who was 100% professional and helpful. She showed us to our room after we expressed trepidation due to the last 3 places we'd stayed having problems. Sure enough, the air conditioner didn't work. She immediately went back up to reception and got the key...

Highly recommended for family or couples looking for a quiet and relaxing environment. Beautiful view of the volcano if you are in the higher units. Full breakfast are included, but don't forget to try the excellent handmade pizza. Super nice and friendly staff. They even packed breakfast for us as we are heading out for an early morning excursion.
