This hotel was a wonderful hotel, a wonderful plus was the amazing view of the Arenal Volcano! The complimentary breakfast tasted amazing! The hot tubs were amazing, but the pool was a bit cold (but refreshing for a hot day) and the kid pool was a little dirty. Overall we had a wonderful stay!

This hotel offers the most incredible view from all it's rooms... Arenal Volcano is literally in it's backyard!  The hotel staff are very lovely and helpful.
