We did a three nights stay there from February 7 to February 10, in the Coco cabin.
The resort is at some distance from the La Fortuna and this guarantees absolute quietness. All sightseeing and attractions are at a short distance.
From your bed and from your balcony, you see and hear the jungle and the Arenal volcano.
The room and bathroom are spacious and perfectly clean. There is a small kitchen with a fridge, with fresh milk, juice and a few complementary drinks.
Debbie and Steve are perfect hosts, and Oscar is very helpful. They did a marvelous job of reforesting.
Meals are simple and mainly based on their own produce.
To sum it all up, I can only confirm all the good things the other people have written about the place, the scene and the people.
One small remark: As non native English speakers, being placed for diner at the same table as the Americans can cause some embarrassment as you get somewhat isolated. I would recommend to put the non Americans at separate tables.
