Nice resort but isolated and without a vehicle it was very costly to go off the property into town. Great property, restaurant was adequate but not great. Would not go back unless had my own transportation. Beautiful but...

Cul de sac sweetness, near the border of Alajuela, other side of the dam past Tabacon, and much more discrete. The long entrance roads were well maintained, despite the frequent buses to Mistico (Fair) Hanging Bridges, which share the road. They have some lovely gardens and trails, that are very private. Get 4WD or standard for this area. Only the...

A mid-range (3-4 star?) resort which achieves what it sets out to do well. Lots of character with fabulous views of the Arenas volcano from every bedroom. Rooms are comfortable with interesting furniture and fittings. Everything works – unusual in CR! Rooms are set in well stocked natural gardens with birds almost within reach from patio or balcony. Restaurant service...

We took our kids and it was one of our best vacations. rooms were very nice, clean and a tropical theme. views of volcano were incredible even with some cloud cover. Highly recommend if Arenal is on your wish list.

The room was lovely with great views, heater, balcony, spa bath, huge comfortable bed. Don't be put off by the steep walks from estaurant and reception - they are very manageable. Good shuttle to Hanging Bridges which can be visited as many times as you like once you have bought a ticket. Breakfast is good, Hotel is alittle remote and...

Stayed here for three nights. Read about it in Fodors and it is as interesting as the say. Quite a bit outside of town but adjacent to Mistico Hanging Bridges. Layout scatters buildings through the forest and each have interesting views or at least did when it stopped raining. Steep grades would make it difficult for those with mobility issues...

We had a wonderful stay at the Lost Iguana. It was our first stop on a two-week visit to Costa Rica and a great introduction to the country. The resort is beautiful and luxurious, in a peaceful, natural setting. Lots of wildlife and the hummingbirds at breakfast can keep you entertained for hours. It's a little removed from the town...
