This hotel could easily be 5 stars as it stands out for: + great location; + breathtaking view; + good restaurant; + pool with hot tube; But there is some disconnect between look and feel: - rooms are big, but not accommodating and not furnished enough. We had room for 4 and there was only 1 small closet, 1 chair,...

We had two wonderful nights in one of the master suites, 2 full queen beds,A/C and the best view to arenal and the lake. excellent complementary breakfast every morning with fresh coffee. the best thing about this hotel is the view and also the hotel is off the town, so it is very quite.

We picked this hotel because of it's great reviews on TripAdvisor, and it was a bit disappointing. To start off with the advantages, the hotel has great views of the Arenal Volcano. When there used to be lava flows, I'm sure you could see them at night; that's no longer possible and you can also have beautiful views of the...

The view alone is enough to give this place a 5 star rating. We were welcomed with a smile, tropical drinks, tour info and pool towels because we were a little early and our room wasn't ready. Sat pool side for 30 minutes to take in the breath taking view of Arenal volcano, Cerra Chato and Lake Arenal. Large, clean...
