5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was our first time in Arenal and the hotel is the perfect place...

This was the most wonderful hotel ever. Staff, environment, everything was to die for. Truly a paradise in the center of the rain forest.

the hotel is awesome the only problem in my case was the mattres they has the worst and cheap mattres i never see in a 5 star hotel the food is expensive i pay 50 dls for 2 breackfast buffets

Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Nestled away right in the heart of the forest, but we never felt covered in bugs. Super clean, amazing views, fun activities. Note, can be expensive especially traveling to and from, but well worth it.

Everything about the resort was great!! Excellent service, kind staff, great food, beautiful resort! Only con was that we could not see arenal volcano due to bad weather...rainy clouds and fog.

This place is incredible, it's a remote resort secluded in the La Fortuna rainforest. No solicitors, no.time share presenters, no worries. Just pure scenic beauty and relaxation. Their is also plenty to do for the adventurous types. Everything from kayaking, ATV's, horse back riding, rock wall climbing, zip lining, nature walks it's more then a person or family can do in a week. The resort is riddled with hot springs that are nothing short of amazing. The rooms are grand and very clean, the staff is hospitable and attentive. They have 5 restaurants on the property that all serve pretty good food. Last but not least try to get a room at least on the second floor of the new building. The view of the Arenal Volcano was breathtaking. I'm a frequent traveller and this was truly one of the best if not thee best resort I've stayed at. A must visit!

Couldn't of asked for better service setting was beautiful great service 5 star hotel at its finest

The best hotel experience near the arenal volcano!

Our room had the best view, and is definitely the best one I've ever been in. It has numerous activities, from spa to tubing or horseback riding. And it's pools, you can choose from natural thermal water to wet-bar pool. I'm hoping to be back sooner than later.

Beautiful hotel in an amazing location! The hotel staff were very helpful and courteous and the swimming facilities and activities amazing. We were welcomed with a tropical drink and our kids loved the daily towel arrangement in the form of different types of animals. The food was great and we enjoyed the water slide. We also loved river tubing and horseback riding at club rio. We loved having a view of Arenal volcano from our room. The gift shop was convenient and we loved the recreation room with numerous games including pool, darts, board games, ping pong and fusball.

Hotel is a 5 plus star for room and services. We have a great times when we went tubing tour. Hot springs and the scenery are best.

A view from Every part of the hotel. Great staff. Room service tended to be better than the restaurant though.

Literally the most beautiful view and stay I have ever experienced

The hotel was wonderful. One of the most fabulous stays we have had in quite some time. The hotel, staff, and amenities are all top notch. We felt pampered from the time we came until the time we left. I highly recommend this property!

awesome! i love every single thing about the hotel

Beautiful place, the staff was very welcoming, the restaurant staff was great, the thermal waters were amazing, the only negative comment is the road to go to the resort it was terrible, is a 2 mile punishment, we couldn't eat outside of the hotel and come back to the hotel right away because the road was soooooo bad that my wife got sick of the stomach, toooo bumpy. Three out of the four days we couldn't leave the hotel. I told the staff that I will return when they fix the road.

We stayed here for just one night, but it was perfect. The room was huge and in walking distance to the hot springs. The animals exhibits were the highlight. We will return for sure!

The hotel was wonderful with a very professional staff. Food in the restaurants was outstanding too. It was great to see the rescue cats and climb on the climbing wall too. All the thermal baths were very clean and nice too! I would stay here again.
