Beautiful hotel. About 7 minutes driving distance from town, but totally worth it. The drive into the grounds had us a little worried as it looked kinda barren but once we pulled into the security area(love how secure and safe it is!!!) we got our first view of the actual grounds. The rooms are divided into cabins that are split......

Our family of four (two preteen girls) thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. Each bungalow has a view of the Arenal volcano. We could lay in bed and take in a superb view through the glass front door. We appreciated the hidden paths and gardens around the resort which backs into the countryside and nature preserve as well as the springs and...

Grounds are lush and gorgeously landscaped and the staff is super friendly. The only downside was the musty smell in the rooms. I understand it's tropial and difficult to control, but it was a very strong odor. I also loved the fact that I could lie in bed and watch the lava rocks skip down the mountain. It was absolutely...

We loved our stay here. So relaxing with beautiful views of the volcano. Close to town but very quiet and peaceful. Would stay again. The rooms feel very private and the hot pool was wonderful. Food was very good including the complimentary breakfast.

Loved this place. The rooms are perfect. Rocking chairs on the patio. A large glass window in the room so you can see out to the volcano. Perfectly landscaped. Delicious breakfast.
