Enjoyed my stay here, all my expectations were met and more, this hotel has it's own hot springs. Nice buffet breakfast, beautiful landscape with tropical flowers, close to Arenal Volcano and lake. Good hiking trail nearby. Good value for the money, would definitely return to this hotel

We had a junior suite here. The room was good sized and included a refrigerator. The bathroom was a bit strange as you had to go up 3 steps to get into the tub/shower. It was fine for us but might be difficult for some. The views from the balcony were lovely and overall the grounds were magnificent-all kinds of...

This was the perfect spot for our family of 5. We had a whole villa to ourselves (two adjoining rooms). The rooms were clean and well maintained. Drinks in the room were cold and inviting.

We have twin 3 year olds so hotels are a bit frustrating for us. They make everything easy from the minute you arrive.

This hotel sits in perfect view of the majestical Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica. The view from the rooms were breathtaking and the staff was very warm and accommodating, making our stay that much more memorable. We also really enjoyed the thermal springs from the volcano that are included in the hotel. Definitely recommend it.
