“Peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

We picked this hotel for its unique property. It backs onto a large rainforest with hiking trails, an organic farm, livestock, plenty of wildlife viewiing, etc...Our kids had a great time exploring the property and were able to see an old fashioned Costa Rican farm in action. My kids also loved the two night tours that Henry (the security guard) gave us. We liked the fact that we were tucked away from the touristy areas of Arenal..

The only negative thing I can say about this resort is that the internet is slow. Everything else is wonderful. Helpful staff, gorgeous property and very comfortable rooms, complete with great showers, a jacuzzi, and a super comfortable bed. Reception has tons of ideas for what you can do in the area, and even just hiking around the property is lovely. Food was good (nothing spectacular, but just fine), and the property is beautiful. Absolutely worth a stay!

This is another review raving about this location. The lodge area is beautiful and the rooms are well kept. The only sounds are those of nature. This isn't a volcano lodge so don't expect those views but it's excellent in all other ways.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room but if you might want a room close to the restaurant if you ha...

This hotel was so different - the rooms were surrounded by wildlife, the pool was one of the coldest on our journey, fed by water straight from a spring. You could hear my breath leave my body when I first jumped in , but it was wonderful and I swam every day. We decks outside our rooms ended up as quite a place to gather and we had many a good drink and conversation there. Loved the detail of towels folded cleverly daily like cute little animals - elephants, swans etc. Good food here, eaten outdoors under a roof and very fresh. Rooms big and comfortable beds. Worth the trip up the dirt road.

Room Tip: You have to walk here to your rooms, so if you want to be lower down the hill ask for room with numb...

We just got back from an OAT tour of Costa Rica where we stayed in about six different places and by far this one was our favorite. The road in is a challenge, but one that is well worth the trip. You must cross a creek to enter the compound which is deep in a rainforest. Besides all the flora and fauna of the rainforest this hotel also has a farm with horses, goats, sheep, geese, pigs etc. The bungalow that we had which I believe is standard was spacious rustic and clean. Attached to our large room and very large bath was a lovely porch with couch, rocking chair, hammock and small dry bar with stools. The breakfast buffet and dinners were very good as was the room service. The staff very friendly and helpful. This would be an ideal place for a family or a honeymoon couple. Very romantic and secluded. A peaceful and beautiful place to get back to nature.

Lovely landscaping and opportunity to birdwatch. Our rooms were amazing! We had views of the trees from all our windows, including the shower! We were greeted with towels folded up as a heart with flowers decorating them as well. The deck in front of our room begged us to sit and relax. Wifi was available all over the grounds, including to our room, altho they say it is only available in the restaurant and reception. Great furnishings in the rooms and restaurant. This was my favorite hotel on my trip.

Room Tip: We had a corner room so the shower had a window on two sides.

We loved chachagua!! It is a little off the beaten path (about 15 mins from the center of town) but we loved that it was not as touristy. The rooms (cabins) were lovely but our hot water was not very hot. We went on a rainforest hike with Christian and it was incredible!!
