“probably best hotel i've ever stayed at”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

We have been all over to the fancy 5 star hotels and when we walked into this place we were taken aback. Gorgeous. Huge rooms in a secluded duplex bungalow setting with waterfall shower, regular shower, and a jacuzzi on the deck! This place is spottless, the staff are incredible and I just cant say enough about this hotel. The restaurant is expensive but really really great quality food and the pool bar and pool snacks make up for it because the menu there is ridiculously cheap!
i would not hesitate to send anyone here. We loved every minute of it!

Beautiful paradise...amazing view of the volcano (we got lucky with a sunny, clear day). Its not a typical hotel. More of a resort..rooms are like a luxurious hut with walk out backyard and private hot tub. The rooms are Big! The bathroom showers are to remember...they have waterfall in the bathroom..pretty amazing! Very clean. The pool is nice as well with a decent bar and a covered area with hammocks. The breakfast was excellent. Very much enjoyed our stay...would highly recommend!

We stayed here at the end of July, 2011. The service was excellent from the time we checked in until our departure. We loved the location, the view, the room, the food, and the staff. We booked the middle of the road room, not the smallest, but not with a kitchen either. It was plenty for us with 1 king size bed and 1 double bed for our daughter. There was a mini hot tub on the porch with chairs facing the volcano... beautiful. The activities are pretty much the same no matter where you stay. The tour guides will come to your hotel and pick you up at a designated time. There is a free shuttle that will take you to town. We ate there as well and it was delicious. Alcohol is expensive in Costa Rica, even if you buy it in the grocery stores!

I want to start this review off by saying, when I was in Costa Rica I stayed at 5 different hotel including Tabacon. I must say this hotel topped them all. The service, staff, rooms, and the food were all out standing. I really like the water fall shower, and the hot tub on the balcony with great views of Arenal. The food in the dinning room was fantastic.

Hard to find fault with much here. The staff was always polite and helpful. Had a unique bungalow (think flintstones) with a nice kitchen, a huge bathroom with two showers also a hot tub inside and a very small private pool outside. It was very clean and well maintained. The breakfast was excellent and the dinner was pretty good though maybe a bit overpriced. The free shuttle into town is a nice feature and cab fare only cost us $5 when the shuttle schedule didnt fit ours. I didnt use the pool though it appeared quite nice and always had some activity there. I would encourage folks who stay here not to book any excursions through the hotel, though. The same tours can be booked in town for much less and they will pick you up and drop you off at the hotel as well.
