A beautiful place to stay very close to La Fortuna waterfalls. The scenery was magnificent and the breakfast was delicious. We had two 2-bedroom rooms, and each beds were in separated areas. Perfect for our family of six. A quiet little hotel that I would stay in again.

6/10 Good

Stayed here during a 15 day trip to CR. The Good: --Right next to the Arenal Waterfall which is a premier attraction in the Fortuna area. --Staff care about you, especially Maximo and Danny. Breakfast is good. --View is amazing from the bigger suites. --The night hike right on the property is awesome --If you rented a vehicle, SkyTrack ziplines, Hot springs, Don Juan coffee tour, Fortuna are all close. --Feels pretty safe. The less good: --Many bugs --Jungle noises all night --Must have a 4*4 to get the last km to the property --The room safe was an unbolted box

GOOD: We loved that the hike to the green lagoon (incredible 4.5 hour hike, weather permitting) was free and just outside our resort if you stayed here. Some staff members are extremely indicative about the area, others not so much. The food at the restaurant was very good and good service. NOT SO GOOD: Hot tub was cold. Most things to do are within driving distance not walking. Kind of at the end of the road. But if you have a vehicle then there is lots to do in the area.
