10/10 Exceptional

Our stay here was one of the highlights of our 9 days in Costa Rica! The young man who checked us in was so nice and helpful! He had great recommendations that helped maximize our time there, and he even called the rental car agency to get their exact location and then put that in my GPS for me. The bungalows were charming and peaceful, and the breakfast was authentic, with enough choices to satisfy our group of 8. The busyness and action of the town was a short walk away, but the property was set back and surrounded by trees, giving it a very relaxing and peaceful ambiance. Watching the rain fall from the rocking chairs on the front porch in a jungle like environment was the perfect ending to an 'on the go' and busy vacation!

Arenal volcano view, the area , walking distance to restaurant and bars, the nature surrounding it. We were looking to stay in a cabin but were a bit hesitant (safety) reasons. However, this hotel worked out amazing !

10/10 Exceptional

Rustic rooms with good linens and furniture to play cards/eat as a family. The air conditioner was in good condition and so was the fridge. We appreciated the staff who were all very friendly. Loren at the reception even helped us order pizza to our room one evening. This is the one stay where we did not have ants in our room or bathroom. It was clean but the walls could use a good wash. The grounds here are a real plant and bird lovers dream. The volcano view is great on the rare occasion that the sky is clear. Breakfast is sufficient although we wish the restaurant was open for additional meals although the ten minute walk to town was enjoyable and very very safe. Even after dark.

6/10 Good

Not as good as we expected
We were never told what time breakfadt was served, nor was it in any of the rules or info. We were really surprised after the advertizing of free Wi-fi, that it could only be used in the office!! NO internet anywhere else. Then, the light outside our room shone thru the window, keeping our room lite up at night, so bright I could read! Lastly, we had trouble getting breakfast because their tour buses crowded the dining room, taking all the tables AND creating a long service line. People were in line ahead of us with dirty plates, indicating they had already gotten food once, and we still hadn't even gotten any.

It was okay …. Staff was nice… beautiful view
The view was spectacular and beautiful. They have an amazing view the Arenal Volcano. The staff was very polite and friendly. I think they need to update and upgrade. They first cabin we were placed in didn’t have a working TV, adequate plumbing or a functioning shower door. We had to demand to be moved but after that the stay was better. The breakfast was delicious they deserve a 10 out of 10. They have WiFi but it only works at the office and cafeteria area.
