When we booked this place, we didn't think it was going to be all that nice. We just wanted to stay somewhere affordable with hot springs. We were so pleasantly surprised by it! The grounds are GORGEOUS, I found myself taking pictures of every tree, plant and flower I passed. Our

Firstly the room itself was big and clean, with fantastic views of the volcano and your own covered porch to sit and watch the view from. I loved the rocking chairs which are everywhere in Costa Rica.

Our room was a good way from the reception and restaurant which was only a pr

Good afternoon, Thank you so much for the time that you have taken to let us know your thoughts. We sincerely appologize for the inconvinience you had with the bellboy, definately will work on improving that. To answer about the hot springs, indeed the color is due to the minerals of the water, ours have no chemicals its all natural, which makes the water look like that. Actually we empty them at night, clean each one, and fill them back in the day to keep them clean.

Very nice touristic complex, with thermal baths, big comfortable rooms and very nice and attentive employees!
Also just in front of the volcano and if it’s sunny the views are incredible
I highly recommend it
Only downside- a bit isolated so if you don’t have a car you can’t go t

Our room was not particularly good. The walls were so thin that we could hear every word spoken by our neighbours. The fridge in the room was very noisy. The shower had no grab rails or a non slip mat. The swimming pool was a building site.

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are actually doing little renovations around the cold pool so by the next time you come around you´ll be happy to see the change, when it comes to the rooms we also have a diferent cattegory that are type bungalows separated one from the other and will be happy to assist you with this next time you come along, that way you can enjoy a little more of the peace and tranquility that we know we can provide.

We stayed here for a few days whilst on our trip through Costa Rica.
We were lucky that we were given a room that was closest to reception & restaurant, otherwise it is a fair walk to other rooms. The room itself is basic but clean with a great view of the Volcano from the balcon

Hi, when you say "We walked up a giant hill and a steep set of stairs for our first cable " is this really strenuous to get to the 1st cable ? How long did it take you to get to that 1st cable ? Also, how long does the whole zip lining take approximately from cable 1 to the end ? Thanks !
Hi there ! No its not difficult to get yo the hill. Easy and you can drive to the cabin no problem. Zip luning i could see the perch and the cables. Very nice actually, did not zipline but looks lije its worth it ! Enjoy

Is it possible to walk to a nearby restaurant or "sodas" or is the only alternative to the hotel restaurants a $20+ round trip taxi fare to one in La Fortuna?
Plenty of taxi's available. You would need a taxi or a rental car or driver when staying most anywhere in the Arenal region. Yes hilly and its not a widely populated area. You would stay in La Fortuna to be near restaurants but then you would want a car/taxi to go from there to the Hot springs
