Hands-down, one of the prettiest hotels in the area! Upon arriving, I was not feeling well due to the transfer drive through the mountains. The gentleman who checked us in could tell and he offered to send someone to the nearest town, LaFortuna, to the pharmacy to get me motion sickness meds! How sweet! The next morning, it was waiting...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 March 2017

We were just blown away by this property. The staff was extremely helpful from the first moment we got there. We were exhausted from a long trip and they helped us to feel welcome. They even called a white water rafting company that we had reservations with to make sure they would pick us up at the hotel. The room...wow....

The staff was gracious and welcoming ,but the overall experience was a big miss. The hotel room was a generous size but the bathroom was out of date , there was mold/rust on almost every window. No amenities in the rooms that felt like luxury. There was no good common space to hang out with a family and have a...

Great hotel with very nice personnel. The rooms are very spacy and largely enough for a 4 people family. The view from the rooms is difficult to beat. You can lay in your bed and watch Arenal as you wake up. Very well situated to visit Arenal. Property is very pretty and well kept. Ask for a room upstairs as...

This was the first stop on our tour of Costa Rica and it was a cracker.

Fantastic stay at this gorgeous setting in front of volcano with beautiful lush gardens and a line up of thermal pools. Very peaceful and relaxing setting. Spotted Congo monkeys right outside of the restaurant one morning. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Restaurants were very good. Room was large and comfortable. Close to many fun activities. Definitely recommend.

We enjoyed staying in a room with a view of the garden and the birds. The view from the dining room towards the volcano is spectacular. Our room had a hot tub in it which was a novelty. We happily spent a whole day birdwatching in the grounds, including a hummingbird nest with babies in it.

This green hotel is built with rooms, pool, gym, etc. facing the volcano. The rooms are very nice and functional and feature a Jacuzzi. The landscaping and gardens are in great condition and the property has a jungle/exotic feel to it. There are also hot springs on the property, which are quite relaxing. We've used their front desk to organize...
