We stayed at the hotel under Air BnB. The host was the manager/owner of the hotel, Peggy. The room was not cleaned or prepared for our arrival. There was no Wifi as advertised. Many of the 'amenities' promised were not delivered. The propane was not hooked up and the towels and linens were not replaced after the last guests' stay. There was zero communication with the host and there was little effort was taken to correct any of the short comings.

Room tip: Do not go. Stay somewhere else.

Beautiful views. Comfortable room. Welcoming staff. Delicious food. These private cottages are little remote and 30 minutes or so from most activities, yet maybe 10-15 minutes to the town of Nuevo Arenal. It's a short walk to the lake where you can spend a couple of hours paddling in a kayak. We loved our stay and felt as if we were among old friends who greeted us warmly every day and did all they could to make our stay one of the most memorable. I cannot wait to return!

Room tip: there are no bad rooms!

The rooms were traditional and clean.
Good choice of menu items for the breakfast and you also get a large fruit platter and coffee/juice also. The best thing about the hotel was the view of the lake which can be seen from each room.

Room tip: Very quiet and peaceful by all rooms because they are individual blocks and spaced out. All with a nice view and all the same rooms.

This rustic hotel is set on a hill with a beautiful sunset view over the lake. The pool is a welcome refresher after a day exploring the area. The grounds are very quiet, peaceful and generally caters to small families and couples looking for a beautiful place to relax. Far enough from Fortuna to escape the crowds and but still only a 20min drive or so. About an hour to Rio Celeste over a fairly rough mountain road. We booked via Airbnb and got a great rate!

Room tip: Take a walk down the lake road for some fantastic bird sightings. And highly recommend the 100yard walk to one of the best restaurants!

What a wonderful place! We stayed in the Royal Cottage which was such a cool villa with 3 bedrooms and a private pool. The view of the lake was stunning and overall the property is very beautiful. The cottage was extremely clean. It included a kitchen and the cleaning service even did our dishes. Breakfast was delicious consisting of multiple options. All of the staff are kind, patient and professional.

Of course, if booking here please realize the hotel is very far from La Fortuna and the volcano park. At least 30 minutes drive. If you are taking shuttles, they will charge more to come to this hotel.

One minor recommendation is for the hotel to provide better kitchen equipment and basic kitchen items.

Room tip: Lake views in the royal cottage
