This is a lovely resort and we had a brilliant room with a fantastic view of the Arenal volcano. The resort is on the rain forest and we had some rain but it was warm enough to not cause any problems
The room that we had was a suite and had a massive bed and lots of room. There was a balcony with an open air jacuzzi bath which was great. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and insects weren't a problem.
The food in the restaurant was adequate although it seemed expensive which was to be expected due to the isolation of the resort.
The grounds are extensive with a great trail with lots of birds and wildlife. There is a lot to do nearby and we thoroughly recommend the hanging bridge nature trail which is very close to the resort.
The only negative point was the noisy music from the bar which spoilt the whole experience of sitting by the pool or in the bar. This is totally incongruous with the eco feel of the resort and we much preferred to sit on our balcony and listen to the sounds of the rainforest rather than endless hours of reggae and rap at an uncomfortable volume. We tried asking several barmen to turn it down, even learning Spanish for quieter music please with no effect.
Overall a brilliant resort for nature lovers but please turn it down or off!
