We stayed there on Feb 12 for 3 nights, our room 208 fantastic view of the volcano. We travel in a group (28) Senior Tours Canada....I did not hear any complaints from any member. Breakfast good variety of food, dinner for Valentines was great with live music. The gardens were spectacular on the property and the hot springs looked inviting...

This is a stylish and comfortable lodge with magnificent views of the active Arenal Volcano from cabin rooms. Rustic wood style. Our cabin-like room with 2 porches (one in front and one in back) with neat rocking chairs had a view of the volcano and a forest in the back that you could hear howler monkeys and see magnificent birds...

Good view of the cone shaped Arenal volcano and the rain forest. Good base for visiting La Fortuna and the Arenal areas. Nice hot springs with at least 10 thermal pools which are maintained and cleansed often. After a long day may indulge in spa then eat at their nice restaurant with excellent cut of beef grilled perfectly to your...

Our room was a complete dump. Our toilet would flush when the adjoining room's toilet flushed. There were ants all over the room and the furniture was so destroyed, the drawers wouldn't even shut. I wouldn't give this furniture to a student going off to college. The bed and bedding was cheap. Even though the hot springs at the hotel...

We only stopped here to do the ziplining which was great! Long lines and beautiful views. The guides were also very serious about safety.

We enjoyed our little "cabana" it's basic but had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable, but not luxurious, the only complaint is that we needed more places to hang things in the bathroom. (Where do we put our swimsuits so that they will dry???) The food at the restaurant was good if you like Costa Rican style marinated...

Stunning view in all directs with the Arenal volcano in the distance. Staff are excellent and helpful. Rooms are small cabins and a bit Spartan. There is a small TV and electricity/hot water most of the time! Food at the restaurant is average and nothing special. The 14 hot springs right on the property are what makes this place special...

We stayed two nights as part of a driving tour around Costa Rica. The hotel is ok - the location is very good with a great view of the volcano and the canopy tour zip lining was excellent. What let the hotel down was the room and the service. The rooms are in need of updating. We had several issues...

The views from every room are stunning, overlooking the amazing Arenal Volcano. The hot springs are natural and inviting as long as you are not expecting them to look like a chlorinated swimming pool. The flora and fauna surrounding the resort, including a very challenging and steep hike to a waterfall in the back were all beautiful. The resident sloth...

Quite nice, I was happy. Beautiful grounds with hot springs and a trail which seemed a bit on the dangerous side to an old crock like me! Wifi only in hotel reception and restaurant (come on guys it's 2012!). Very dark in room. Breakfast good. Shower good.
