“A Beautiful Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

This place is a little piece of heaven. We did not want to leave. We stayed two nights and wish we would have stayed longer. Close to Tabacon hotsprings and well worth the price. Next trip to Costa Rica we will definitely return to this place

Room Tip: All rooms are great

Would definitly go again. Everything was perfect. My only gripe is that as we were buying things in the gift shop, a bottle opener fell from the display and splattered open. The cashier charged me for it as we checked out. Btw it was a cheap plastic bottle attached to an opener and she charged me 8 bucks. I felt like I wasnt the first victim nor the last. Other than that the place was perfec

We fell in love with the Fortuna area. I researched a long time before choosing this hotel and I was very pleased with my choice. From the moment you park (we were driving), you are greeted and brought inside. The staff at the reception was friendly and helpful. Very clean everywhere and well kept. The views of the volcano from every room is spectacular! The grounds are lush and groomed. One of the reasons I chose this hotel was because it has its own hot springs. We enjoyed these hot springs so much! The swim up bar and swim up sushi bar were awesome and so clean. We had sushi one afternoon - yummy!!! In fact , my fiance and I were so impressed by the grounds, pools, volcano view and staff, that we have decided to have our wedding here :)
The rooms are clean, nothing fancy, a little outdated but still spacious and clean. Beds are a little hard. Two rocking chairs to admire the view right outside your door :)
I will definitely be back with my whole family for our wedding :)

Great rooms, included full breakfast. elaborate set of thermal pools, warm pools, swim up bar. Quiet with excellent views of Arenal volcanoe from every room, which are attached to only 1 other room.

Room Tip: They all have excellent views of the volcano

After spending time in the Tortuguero rainforest this was an upscale experience in comparison.
The rooms are nicely decorated with flat screen TVs and upscale bathroom.
Food was good and the bar/lounge was fun.
All the units have a view of the volcano which was nice.
There was a large pool area with swim up bar. Spa is onsite, as well.
If you are looking for a "Southern CA" type resort then this is for you.
