Very relaxing environment. The hot springs and pool area stayed was never crowded even though the property was at capacity. Very nice and accomodating staff. Loved having my morning coffee on my balcony with the Arenal Volcano as my view. I enjoyed my stay and would return.

I traveled to Costa Rica with my 15-year-old daughter. While in the area, we stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, in spite of the rain. The grounds were quite pretty. A taxi into town is needed or have your own car.

We stayed here a few days ago - 3 nights / 4 days. We have 3 girls and they loved it. I found the rooms to be a bit too basic for myself, and while they accommodated us with a twin bed for the 5th in our party, the bed lay on the floor and the room as a whole...

Let me begin by saying that we knew what to expect for this hotel, and it further exceeded our expectations. I do not think that the resort is huge, as others are saying, but a nice medium sized resort that is easily walkable. It was small enough that we frequently saw other members of our party (22 of us that...

Our room was clean and comfortable. We loved how we could sit on the front porch and view the volcano. Short walk to the dining area and the pool/hot springs. The food was very good. This is a good place to relax and enjoy a drink while sitting the hot springs..morning, noon, or night!
