We enjoyed the different temperature pools and spas, including the refreshing cool down pools. The swim up bar offered nice drinks to sip while wading and lounging, and the changing areas were clean and convenient.

This place is great. We stopped by after a full day of trekking the Arenal hanging bridges and almost making it up to the Arenal Volcano (lightning =no hike). It was not very crowded and very tranquil. The water is heated from the volcano but...More
