This hotel is really nice. It is built with nature all around. Actually, the only thing you see is the dense nature and the Arenal Volcano, which is astounding. The place is very well kept. We went around 4 years ago and the hotel is in shipshape condition. Breakfast is included, buffet, and with good options. The pools are great,...

This is a large sprawling facility made up of more than 100 separate duplexes, all of which face the Arenal volcano. The grounds are magnificently landscaped. Be prepared to walk a bit from your room to the restaurant or pools. The rooms are comfortable, if not luxurious, and ours was very clean and well maintained. Rooms are equipped with showers...

Everything in the room was quite basic and very outdated (1970s/1980s style). The bed was not especially comfortable. Several basic items were provided in very limited quantities (towels, pillows). The room had a tiny closet wedged into a difficult-to-reach corner of the room. Accessibile by a somewhat rough unpaved road from the highway. Rained the entire time we were there...

“We liked being far from the front desk, pool, etc because it was very quiet. Others may prefer being closer to the action.”
