The hotel grounds are everything you'd expect in Costa Rica, with beautiful gardens, crocodile and butterfly farms. It also has a direct view of Arenal. The thermal pool is God-sent after a long day of hiking equipped with a slide for the kids - and adults. It's got all the amenities with very affordable massage services which I admit even I indulged in. The restaurant on-site was a bit expensive for CR standards and the resort was about 2km outside of La Fortuna but taxis are easy to get. The rooms are 2 to a building and they are dotted throughout the grounds but for more privacy, you get ones up the hill, which is a small hike in its own right, just to get back to your room.
The main reason we gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because we asked the front desk regarding transportation to Arenal and back. They assured us it's not a problem. After a wonderful jaunt at Arenal, we headed back to the main gate of the park to be told that there was no direct transportation back. They didn't even have a phone to call for taxis. Our choices were the bus, whose stop was several kms down the road and comes every hour or walk all the way home - which was about 12 kms I believe. After getting back, we told the front desk about our experience, he sort of shrugged and said "oh well".
