I just traveled there with my wife for our honeymoon, and we were very pleased. The staff was very helpful, almost everyone spoke english, and the food and drink at the bar was appropriately priced. The only downside: it's not quite walking distance from La Fortuna, and the $10-15 taxi ride each way made going into town a little bit...

Very nice set io. Lots if walking within property. Each room like a little cabanas with sitting area/ patio and wonderius views or the volcano. The deluxe are higher up for nicer view but that means steeper walks. Little kitchen type area with a sink; refrigerator; counter. And mini trudge is stocked. Coffee in room is free; others for sale....

We really enjoyed our stay here. When we entered we had a great room with a fabulous view. Every morning when we would come back from our day tours we would find a beautifully towel crafted animal and flowers on the bed. The food was good and the service was very good. I would have preferred to see a little...

I loved that the rooms are "bungalows" (2 rooms per cabin) and that we had a PERFECT view of the volcano! We didn't use the pool or the hot tub while we were there, but both looked nice. The breakfasts were delicious, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It's a little ways out of La Fortuna downtown, but...
