    We arrived to the location at about 7 pm. We were told that the hot springs would be open until 10. We went to visit the springs and found that none of them were lit so it was very difficult to see and rather dangerous if you wanted to get in. The pathways mostly had burnt out lights so it was quite dark going down the paths. We opted to turn around after the second spring because it was too hard to see anything. We then went to our room for the night and found fresh rat droppings on the one bed which was a major turn off. Then my husband proceeded to continue to kill several ants and other insects making their way into the room. I realize that you’re in a rainforest environment and there’s going to be bugs but you expect them outside not in your room where you are going to be sleeping. It could have been much worse but for the price paid it should have been much better. Sadly we won’t be returning to this property and as a travel agent I can’t recommend it to any of my clients.

    Hot pools were not hot and some were closed. Main pool area undergoing renovation. Our neighbors in cabin were very noisy. Caters to group tours, lots of Europeans.

    We really enjoyed the experience and had a spectacular view. We arrived at 11:30 at night and still were waiting for us with the check-in. Were very kind, great breakfast. Need to get better at meals at their restaurant and cleaning the insects in the bathroom - we had ants and cockroaches in the bathroom all the time.

    Lindo hotel en Arenal

    Es la segunda vez que me alojo en el hotel. Sencillamente espectacular. Muy agradable. Sus instalaciones adecuadas. Son antiguas pero bien mantenidas. Lo mejor sus 12 lagos termales en la montaña que te dejaran tentar por la naturaleza.

    What a great, little place!!!!! Little cabins, super friendly and accommodating staff, very reasonable food & drink prices, many, little thermal pools that feed into each other (top one is the hottest, then cooling as it flows downward), and then a main swimming pool and a main thermal pool with a wet bar.
