What a fantastic spot. as I was driving up to the property, I thought I was transported somewhere in Europe. the hotel had swiss chalet-style buildings, a wonderful hotel with multi flags flying in the wind....... and to top everything off.... a miniature train that took you up to the top of the property to a private circular restaurant, that...

Stayed in apartment, up the hill from the front desk. The apartment has a great view of the lake with a terrace. The living room looks right out onto the lake. It's a million dollar view. Apartments are a three min walk back to the front desk. Although we didn't use it much, there was a full kitchen complete with...

This review is based on my experience eating in their restaurant. The food was ok and the service, they could have been more aware. The problem is that I sat with my friends eating breakfast and the pungent smell of horse manure was overwhelming and made us cut sort the time we were there. The stables are probably more than...

We had been there several years ago and it was good. However, this time we went to the restaurant and ordered steak, the meat was very bad and very cheap quality, we asked if we could change the meal and they said no. They charged us for a dish we did not eat. They also lock their cows and have...

Loved my recent stay at Hotel Los Heroes. We immediately felt transported to the Swiss mountains upon arriving at the property. I traveled with friends so we rented a two bedroom apartment up the hill which had just incredible views in every direction and ample space for three adults and a toddler. The hotel was quiet during our stay as...

This place is very interesting and impressive it feels like being in Switzerland. The owner has built several chalets in the Bernese style and even a little church. The cheese fondue was excellent. If Swiss people visiting Costa Rica feel homesick just go there and you will feel right at home.

Very nice place directly at the Lake Arenal. It's a beautiful scenerie like somewhere at the Vierwaltstättersee in Switzerland. The swiss-costaricane pair build up a great life project with chalets, chapelle, mountain train, turnable panoramic restaurant, farmer house and a lovely hotel. It's just a very nice place to rest and to enjoy the great view.

Los Heroes hotel, also known as Pequeña Helvecia (Little Switzerland) is just that, a tiny slice of that beautiful mountainous country, complete with milk cattle and a little 4 kilometer train ride up to the Rondo-Rama restaurant with its panoramic view of the Arenal lake and the Arenal volcano. NOT TO BE MISSED! The pool is comfortable with depth of...
