We were with our 2 kids (5,11) and stayed here 3 nights to discover the Arenal area. The accomodation was nice with good beds, shower. All rooms have a terrace with a view on the Arenal vulcano, although the vulcano was in the clouds for all the days we were there. My wife used the Spa and was very enthousiastic...

The resort itself is pretty, but the road leading there is completely riddled with potholes, and if you are driving, beware- the resort is set 1 KM from the mainroad via a cratered path. Also, it would certainly help if the hotel had more signs on the main road so one doesn't miss the little turn right next to another...

Overall a wonderful and beautiful place to stay. Front desk was always friendly, spoke English and was extremely helpful. Our stay was extremely wonderful thanks to Mario, who helped us every night with our kosher meals. Even though our kosher meals came from outside the restaurant, Mario frequently asked us how everything was and if we needed anything. Mario always...
