A beautiful hotel & surroundings

Posted Aug 22, 2017
Pros: Beautiful, natural surroundings. Gorgeous trees and flowers.
Cons: Nothing I can think of right now.
Location: Tabacon Thermal Resort is close by; we went there. Did 2 great excursions: Mistico Hanging Bridges hike, and Arenal Volcano hike at the National Park.
My room was very nice. There were beautiful trees & lush foliage right outside my window. I had a direct view of Arenal volcano. I often enjoyed sitting outside reading, listening to the birds, and enjoying nature. My family of 5 (inc. 2 teenaged boys) enjoyed the free, delicious breakfasts. We usually ate at the hotel for lunch, and often ordered pizza for dinner (reasonably priced). I liked your two-for one drink specials. Your entire facility is beautiful, and I'd recommend it to singles, couples or families. I would stay here again if I ever returned to Costa Rica.

Beautiful view What a nice view, beautiful hotel and great hot springs, we stayed there for 4 days 3 nights and we enjoyed the food the hot springs the facility and the nice service, I do recommend the hotel especially if you are doing a lot of activitities outside, you need to bring bug spray and panchos as there is lots of rain and bugs, it is a rain forest but overall you feel you are in paradise

Nice, quiet stay

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Hotel staff was excellent, as was the location. It wasn't elegant, but was really very nice, secluded and exactly what we were looking for. The breakfast was excellent and much more than I expected it would be, as it was complimentary. The pool was lovely. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and we lacked nothing. Overall a great stay!

Mrs. Linda!! I really appreciate your nice comments. This place is exactly like you mentioned, it is close from town, but at the same time is a quiet place. The company is so proud because the staff is really friendly. Some of them have more than 10 years working for the hotel.

Wonderful place to stay

Posted May 20, 2017
Pros: Everything! from amenities, to food offerings, and views. Note that simple food like hamburgers can be purchased at the pools.
Cons: Not much. It would be nice to have a paved road from the highway to the hotel driveway.
Location: Very well located for all of the Arenal activities. Located between town and the National Park, Sky Trek adventures, and lake. Car is helpful.
This hotel and location provided all that was needed for a comfortable stay. It had lovely pools, pool bars with happy hours, on-site restaurant with breakfast buffet, and gorgeous views. Room was very attractive and clean with an especially nice bathroom. Loved the volcano view from our chairs on our front patio.

Great stay

Posted May 20, 2017 on Hotels
It was a quick one night stay for my wife and I after a full day tour. Check in was quick and easy. Reception was helpful and got us into our room quickly and still provided information about the tours nearby. The best view to the arenal volcano compared to all of the other hotels we stayed at. Buffet breakfast was tasty and has great service. 5/5.
