Great place to go with family or friends

Posted Jun 23, 2017
Pros: The combination of narure, peace and so much outdoor activities to do, all in one place!!!
Cons: The bar maybe.... it is good but is not really a bar, is more of a lounge to hear some music and a drink
Location: Not much nearby.... mean outside the Hotel, but if you are willing to drive for an hour, you can go to beaches or some other places and enjoy
If looking for a nice quiet place that combines peace with a bunch of different outdoors activities, then this hotel is the place to go!!! They make everything as easy and friendly and comfortable to you as possible, it is expensive to eat there every day, but the menu worth it, if you rent a car, you can easily go to places outside the hotel, it will take you an hour or so to get to the beaches, but everything is well indicated by signs on the road and even if you stop and ask for directions, everyone will help you fin your way, the hotel es very safe, clean and have almost everything you need to make your stay as nice and active as possible, you should try the "one day adventure pass" it's great!!!

Nice Place to Stay

Posted Jun 7, 2017
Pros: All.
Location: The Rincon de la Vieja National Park is a 10-minute drive. There are Hot Springs and a LOT of things to do.
It is a great place to stay at. It was very very nice and it was not expensive at all. Very recommended.

Excellent and better than expected

Staff go out of their way to help. Everyone greets you and makes eye contact, the buffet changed and was fresh every day, from their own livestock and produce. The tours were well organized and fun

Good compromize between a rough local place and a too fancy resort for westerners only and without any soul

Not what I was looking for!

Posted Apr 11, 2017
Hotel conditions were not very good. Looks old and low quality materials for the facilities and also the beds and covers. The room didn't have a TV. The hotel smell bad because of the farm that is almost in the middle of the hotel. The restaurant is nice but expensive, breakfasts was very good. Location is not bad, all the attractions are not in the hotel so you have to go in your car or bus. The staff was good. Need to improve Hotel conditions and infrastructure!
