We loved the character of this space. It was personal. Not high end. The host more than accommodating and great service. The space had 4 varying degree of hot springs to soak in. It was low season so not very busy. Breakfast was great and provided with the room charge. While the space was generally clean, the AC didn't work in 1 of the 3 rooms we were in. And warm showers were not working great. Also something to consider - this resort is about 4 miles from La Fortuna. We weren't quite prepared for this as we had 9 in our group. This is something to consider if you plan to stay here, i would recommend renting a car to get around. Most tour options will come pick you up...but just for getting into and out of town for lunch/dinners, we ended taking taxis (not the end of the world! :))

Worst Experience with Expedia EVER
After reserving with this hotel via expedia and get the confirmation I drove for 3 hours to La Fortuna. When I got there the manager of the hotel told me I had no room there, that there was no space altough she saw the Expedia reservation. I asked her why she did not call me and she could not answer... Instead she offered me going to a 1 star place to sleep and she would give me breakfast for free. I mean you serious? The attention to the client was awful and she did not care about us at all. WILL NEVER RECOMMEND TO GO HERE

2/5 Poor

Not a 3 star
The hotel is outdated and old. Needs total remodeling. Definitely not beyond 1.5 stars under current condition. I was duped into this being a 3 star by Expedia and being charged for 3+ star rate. You can take a look at the attached picture to know what I am talking about. There is no hot water in the sink area and I had to shave under the shower as that is the only place with hot water.

4/5 Good

Best welcoming staff at this hotel! They took care of us like family and made sure we were comfortable. Very mannered and friendly people work here. Beautiful scenery, nice hot springs inside, and room has all basic amenities. We were very happy here!

Good hotel at great location
Sueno Dorado was a nice hotel that I would stay at again. Every single staff member that we encountered was beyond helpful and friendly, above and beyond what I'd ever even expect. The guy who cooked our breakfast came out of the kitchen to ask if everything is ok and when we asked the front desk to call a taxi for us, they offered us a ride into town on a shuttle that was headed that way. The location - it doesn't get much better than this. Right in front of Arenal Volcano, it has got to be one of the best and closest views in the area. It's right in between several other resorts and hot springs in the area. The room was no frills but it was clean and spacious which is all I need. Overall, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.
