Stayed here based on a friends recommendation, I travel alot on business and found it just to be ok. It was quiet and it was nice having a hot tub in the room but overall the hotel was way overpriced for what you get.

We recently spent several nights at the hotel and I cannot say enough about the beauty of the hotel grounds, the room and the amazing view of the volcano. The settting was extremely tranquil. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The view was just amazing.

I booked this place knowing it would be the most "resorty" hotel of our stays in CR, as Arenal area is somewhat of a tourist hub. The merits of its own Hot springs, exclusive for hotel guest use is what swung it for us.I dont like crowds, and im not good at sharing :) We also notice they have flash...
