Small hotel, about twelve rooms, located in a hill in the south shore of Arenal Lake. From there you can take a photo of the Volcano with the lake below, the lansdcape is awesome!!.
Also customers attention was great, with a continental and local breakfast served on the porch. While having breakfast you can see hummingbirds and even hear the sounds of the jungle around, very relaxing.
Rooms are quite big, specially the shower, tidy and well decorated in a Tico style. A couple own the hotel, he is from United States and she is from Costa Rica, a perfect mixture, I think they also live there.
To reach the hotel, you must follow a one kilometer path up to the hill. It's muddy in some stretches, so off-road vehicle is hardly recommended.
Have some cash money with you. We have to pay cash because of a power cut... Cashpoints are quite far away!!
Apart from this, our stay was perfect and we're going to repeat the next time.
