    Decent location, but great views of the volcano. Lots of amenities (pool, jacuzzi, restaurant, bar, parking). Very friendly staff, very clean and modern rooms and excellent balconies. No noise, I rested just fine! Wi-Fi was very slow in the evening.

    Hello- I will be staying there in April and am wondering if the hotel provides a shuttle service to and from popular places. If not, does anyone have recommendations on cost efficient ways to get to Arenal Observatory Lodge, and Tabacon Hot Springs? I keep seeing that taxis are expensive. Is this true? Thank you in advance!
