Excellent experience, wifey recommends spa. Nice fancy restaurant, expensive though. Good snack bar. Lots of choices to eat nearby.
Not recommended for kids, will get bored, pools are filled with volcanic springs water, hot and relaxing, not suitable for playing.
Recommended for couples.
We had an amazing room with great views of the Arenal volcano. The large balcony had a jacuzzi and we enjoyed the hot mineral waters every evening listening to the sounds of the rain forest. Amazing place!

This hotel and adjacent national park was the highlight of our 12 day trip through CR.
GROUNDS: The hotel is magnificent, with individual bungalows surrounding the central lobby/restaurant and pool. The tropical landscaping is gorgeous and dense enough to isolate each of the bungalows, affording privacy, even when sitting in the covered front porch. The ¾ kilometer trail down to the Rio Celeste on their property provides a great 15-20 minute hike to the river’s edge, where you may choose to take a dip in an area protected by large boulders.
The hotel also has a large pool, with a pool edge bar, and three hot whirlpools, which provides a great place to relax after hiking the adjacent National Park.
SUITE: The bungalow was large and comfortable, with rich mahogany floors, vaulted bamboo ceilings, and a British Isles style décor. I appreciated the modern design and layout of the spacious bathroom, with an indoor tub/shower and a second private outdoor shower, which came in handy when we running late for dinner!
FOOD: The complimentary breakfast buffet in the beautiful open air restaurant was delicious, with plenty of fresh fruit, and many American and Tico options to choose from. Dinner was also excellent, with impeccable service.
STAFF: The bilingual staff was warm and friendly, and provided outstanding service. We enjoyed the company of Juan Pablo, Greivan, and Ever, who all went above and beyond to meet our needs, and helped make the stay even more memorable.
This hotel provided a very unique experience. I loved the individual cabins and having AC was amazing. We could see the volcano every day. Also the hot springs were so nice we didn't visit any others in the area. The spa is gorgeous and so relaxing. But the best thing about this hotel was the staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We felt like everyone was available to help us have a great experience. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this location to anyone looking for peace and serenity.

This hotel far exceeded my expectations. The room was magnificent. A giant framed bed. Every night towels formed in a different shape decorating the bed. The bathroom had two showeres. One with a rainfall head and one spectacular rock shower with the water coming out like a waterfall. Finally, a private outdoor jacuzzi with view of the Arenal volcano.
The dining facility was open air, beautiful and no bugs. The staff were friendly and helpful in selecting the best hot springs, zip line and rappelling adventures.
