Reviewed 4 January 2015

It's not the *best* resort in the area, but it's nice if you prefer some calmness after a day of outings and activities in Arenal. Pros: + Location is just a bit up the hill from La Fortuna (tourist madness town); it's gated + Beautiful grounds ; plenty of parking next to your room + Bungalows are 2 rooms per,...

We stayed here from Dec. 25 to Dec. 29 in Room 130. We checked in around 5PM and after traveling over 10 hours to get there, all we wanted was a hot shower. My daughter (age 7) went first and got hot water...her shower was about 5-8 min. I went next and had no hot water. My son (age 8)...

What a great location and attention to service. Our room was # 103. Although it lacked a clock and our key quit working several times, sitting on the patio with an obstructed view of the rain forest was wonderful. And they have a hot springs thermal pool to ease tired muscles. There was even a small garden in the bathroom....

This hotel was one of two we stayed at in Costa Rica. The second was the JW Marriott in Guanacaste. Here, the setting was beautiful, the room was great, and the staff was great.

We had a lovely time at this sprawling hotel...
