The location is prime for views of the volcano and the grounds are immaculate. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well appointed. Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the staff especially friendly or helpful, particularly the front desk staff. I stayed at four other places in CR and this staff was the least friendly of the group. I did notice it was the same front desk staff always on service, so I could imagine that working as much as they did it would be difficult to be continually super-friendly to guests. I also liked that it was a cab ride to town, feeling tucked away was nice. As for the cabs, it is good to ask when coming or going their rates before getting into the cab, we found that different taxis tried to charge us anywhere from $5 to $15 for the same ride to/from town. It seemed as though $6 was the average, and a completely fair price.
