Heard howler monkeys at night and in the mornings. Arenal national park, volcano and lake close distance. Very scenic area, friendly people and great activities. Hikes, wildlife, sky treks and tram. We did...

Im not sure where to start with this place so I guess I will say a couple good things: The landscaping surrounding all of the "rooms" was very nice, and there was a lot of wildlife on the property (but where isnt there in CR?). That's about it though. I tend to write too much so I will bullet point...

Every room has volcano view. The rooms are spacious, but not detached. The breakfast is really excellent, diner also, but expensive. If you are a birder: leave. A lot of swimming pools. Some are heated with water coming from the Arenal volcano.
