I stayed in this place because of the good reviews but is not like it. The rooms are decent, terrible pillows. It had good A/C. The bathroom was not the cleanest...and that is terrible when staying at a hotel. Forniture was oldish and fridge was missing parts. The cars passing by the street could be clearly heard while sleeping. The...

This place has an enormous potential, the property is beautiful and it's close to the centre of La Fortuna - but not really walking distance. The staff wasn't welcoming at all. We were induced to pay in cash because paying with card would cost around $10 more than what was announced on the website used to book it, which is...

Well, looking at the pictures, this one a hotel I was really looking forward to. But unfortunately it turned out to be a bit of a let down. Rooms are spacious, but not very clean. Sheets had lots of hair on them, because they use all synthetic sheets. The view was not of the gorgeous volcano, but of the ugly...

I loved the setting for the hotel...the room was nicely setup and the gardens on the property were beautiful. Initially everything seemed great, the owner was very pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately there was an issue with hot water...one out of four showers was warm...the rest cold...Also we were there 3 days and the towels were never changed. When I mentioned...

The pool area is very nice and we had it to ourself both times we went. The temperature of the hot tub could be a little warmer but still very nice as at...

Good - location, view, access, beds, a/c, bathroom, shower, pool, and very good on price. Nice gardens too. Took a nap on the hammock and it was quiet even though it was on the side of the road. Staff was friendly and helpful. Bad - nothing.

It was great to be able to stay in one room with the five of us. Lots of beds and the refrigerator and coffee maker was a plus. However there were ants in the room which are common here I guess, the bathroom window was broken, and the hot water for the hot tub wasn't working. Incredible views and the...

The property is so beautiful with a great view of the volcano. The pool and hot tub were small but clean. The breakfast was delicious and worth the small fee. The hotel was walking distance to restaurants and bars. Our room had a private patio with out own hammock! The sound of monkey and chickens woke us up every morning...
