Not your typical hotel
Posted Mar 10, 2011 on Hotels
This hotel was located 1 km from La Fortuna, base site for exploration of Arenal volcano. Actually it is about 50 km fromo La Fortuna, on a twisty road. The place is whimsical and a little quirky. Someone like to paint flowers and other things on just about everything. There's lots of places to walk, lots of animals around (horses, cats, dogs, sheep). Rooms have beautiful views out over a canyon. It is in a cloud forest, so it can be on the cloudy and cool side. The Israeli owners didn't seem too hospitable - I got grilled just for asking for ice. The hotel restaurant was way overpriced for Costa Rica. There's a great restaurant just up the road with food for a fraction of the price...but you really need a car to get there unless you like lots of walking. Breakfast, included, was very good.
