The hotel it's located excellent. In addition to a very spacious & comfortable room and of course not to forget a very courteous staff always ready and willing to help, from my point of view it's a great value for money!

I'll make it short. Good location, clean, modern and pretty. Big bedrooms and bathrooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Fast internet connection. Good breakfast. Price is good. I stayed there more than 10 nights and I enjoyed it. The only thing that is more a problem for them than us is that the air conditioner in my room the second time...

This old style hotel stands out as one of few high rise hotels in the town and therefore has the 'view' factor. However, it is strange that the rooms on the opposite side of building facing volcano do not have windows to the outside. We booked one of these economic rooms on the website but fortunately we were upgraded to...

We stayed here for a few nights and were happy with this friendly, well run and spotlessly clean hotel. Our room on the 4th floor was quiet and had a great view of the volcano (once the clouds parted) - and the air con worked really well. The free breakfast of fruit, scrambled eggs and griddle cooked bread (not toast!)...

We stayed here for a week while traveling around the Arenal area, the staff is helpful, friendly, and the hotel was very clean. We stayed in the volcano view room and it was perfect. The front desk is staffed 24 hours. Breakfast was included.

Vary Clean! The staff was friendly and knowledgable, the rooms were well maintained, and the shower was huge! Convenient location, great views, and a satisfying breakfast. Well worth the price of admission. Would definitely stay there again.

The staff were very friendly and helpful at check-in. Our room was basic, but we had a great little balcony with a view of the volcano, which is fantastic. The restaurant is within walking distance of many small "sodas" to eat at and near fruit stands and gift shops. The provided breakfast, of fruit, eggs, and toast was good, although...
