Oh. My. God!

From the approach, this doesn't look like much.
The property, however, is LUSH!

From a swimming pool built into volcanic rock (a little wierd because it's black) to a Jaccuzzi in your bedroom!

The food was also pretty darn good and this vegan particularly liked the breakfasts!

The jungle-like tropicana that you walk through on the property is absolutely stunning.

But here's the most amazing part.... every morning there, was foggy & cloudy (volcano?)
The last morning however, I woke up and (the beds face the picture windows) the sky was clear and blue and the live volcanoe was staring right at me. It was stunningly gorgeous!

I've never had such a breathtaking experience.

I definitely want to go back there!
it was the BEST birthday present I've ever given myself!

Room Tip: Make sure your room faces the volcano! (I think they all do).

Wonderful morning views of the Arenal volcano. Beautiful grounds. Friendly staff. Large luxurious suites. Only negative is that the on property hot springs aren’t hot but the offsite springs make up for it. Great place to base yourself near Arenal and La Fortuna

When we arrived we were greeted by the friendly staff who helped/showed us to our room. The room itself was stunning. All the facilities you need, spacious and all with an outstanding view of the volcano. Comfy bed, jacuzzi with a view and a nice shower.

The grounds are just so beautiful, well maintained and a good plant collection. You'll be able to see lots of wildlife around the grounds as well.

Food was lovely, lots of choice with the breakfast buffet, all tasted really fresh. Dinner was great as well at both restaurants, we were never disappointed. On a personal level we found the food to be a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for. We always found the staff to be pleasant and helpful.

The pool and hot springs were lovely to use, well kept and clean. We would happily recommend this place to anyone and we'd be happy to come back ourselves if we get the chance!

We stayed here for just 2 nights and it was amazing! It was very quiet. The views were just amazing and the gardens were beautiful. We had some awesome views of the volcano. The bartender at the pool was very nice and accommodating. Since we were practically his only customers, he took great care of us. All of the staff was very friendly and a pleasure to deal with.

From the moment you get here, the guy at the gate makes you feel so welcome. He said "We are so happy you are here" that simple statement is so powerful that tells everything is going to get better and better. When you get to the lobby someone was already waiting for us to guide us and help us with our checking process. When they took us to our room.... omg the view is amazing. Room is big with jacuzzi inside and even a área to work and another little sofa. We wake up everyday with the most amazing view to the volcano. The breakfast was included and delicious with tons of options. From tipical breakfast to healthy options tons of fruits and much more. We also enjoyed the Spa and the thermals water.
