What an amazing experience, all thanks to the staff here! It was our first time in Costa Rica and everything couldn't have been more perfect. Eduardo and Marvin made us feel like family during our 8 day stay in Arenal. They booked every activity for us ahead of time making our days full and exciting. The hotel is a beautiful...

So.... the view.... AMAZING!!! The room was very spacious and the beds were comfortable. For $5 a kilo (2.2lbs) they washed our clothes. Sky Adventures is their next door neighbor, and even though I was being frugal, I ended up coughing up the near $200 for my husband and I to do the Sky Trek zip lining with the bridge...

This is the place you should stay.. Why? Because it has gret view of the lake and the vulcano. Or is it because of the great service? The name is Eduardo!! He is the man who does all his best to help you, and that it not a little. All thanks to you Edurdo...and he is also a good driver...

We really enjoyed staying at the Tropical Garden, where you can relax in front of a stunning view over the Arenal volcano and the whole lake, surrounded by gorgeous flowers and hearing the sound of hummingbirds. In the morning, you can also get a very good breakfast (typical costa rican dish, fruit or pancakes, with good coffee or fruit juice)....

The hotel offers the most beautiful views of lake Arenal, rain forest and the Volcano. However, we had a poor experience at this hotel. To start with, 1) we had to wait for over an hour for to get the key, 2) only breakfast is offered so you have to go the Fusion restaurant or some other place for dinner,...

We arrived after dark to our hotel, unsure of parking or check in. Eduardo stayed late to wait for us and gave us a quick and easy run down of tours and amenities. That night we were the only guests, as it is low season, and he let us pick between 2 rooms at the same rate. We picked the...

Absolutely fantastic! My husband and I initially were planning to stay five days in La Fortuna, and we ended up deciding to change the plain tickets and stayed eight days instead. We were coming from the south of the country where we spent 20 days. We loved Costa Rica, the people there, the places and food. The hotel is great,...

I stayed there with my mom, brother and two friends. The place is very peaceful, you can hear the birds and howler monkeys in the morning. There's a very nice view of the volcano, the breakfast was good.

This is a small hotel in a very nice setting, with great views of Lake Arenal and the Arenal volcano. The viewpoint at the edge of the cliff overlooking the lake is awesome. It's quite far from civilization - the town of El Castillo is about 5 km away. A 7km drive on gravel road will take you there from...
