“Fabulous stay”
Reviewed 7 April 2013 via mobile

We found the lodge through a living social deal and wow, this place was amazing!

The actual rooms are nice, but if you are looking for an incredible room go somewhere else besides Costa Rica. With that said they are nice but nothing special. What was special was the cleaning staff, and I will say this throughout this review the people here are awesome and really made this a great stay, But back to the cleaning people, each day the staff would make some different animal with the daily towels, and so it up with flowers and my fiancé and I loved coming back to the room after a day of adventuring to see what new creative thing was on the bed, just those simple things can make or break a trip and a stay somewhere.

The restaurant has great service and very tasty drinks. Everything they use to make the drinks is fresh. Our waiter wouldn't serve us something unless it was going to be amazing, which it was. Fresh pineapple for piña coladas, fresh everything, no concentrates or anything like that. The overall menu actually changed while we were there. The last two days they had a new menu and what we both had was excellent.

Also the pool area is an incredible place to unwind or for breakfast start your day! The volcano is right there in its full glory and the grounds in general are lush and beautiful. The rain Forrest comes alive and the bird and wildlife are incredible! Would highly recommend even without the living social deal, with it, it was close to stealing, it was that incredible!!

This hotel has beautiful grounds, views of the volcano from everywhere, private rooms with outdoor seating, a well priced and good restaurant, helpful staff, a nice pool, and is a short cab ride to la fortuna. We had a great time here as a couple, based at the hotel but leaving almost every day for different activities. It was quiet, but with enough other people to make conversation if you wanted. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms were spotless. Got a good hour long massage as well. Really pleasant and friendly atmosphere. If you like a lot of hustle at your hotel it's probably not for you but I liked very much being close enough to town to go for dinner and hang out but then coming back to a little more quiet and beauty.

This hotel was part of our tour package and it was chosen for us. We went in May (which is off season and rainy for Costa Rica) and it was virtually empty, it felt as if we were the only ones at this whole hotel. The grounds were very lush, you felt as if you were in a rainforest. Everything was wet and very green. Beautiful flowers and different types of greenery abounded. The volcano was active when we went and it was constantly spewing smoke which was very cool to see. Our room was a good size room with a little patio and glass siding door which led to a small table and chairs to sit outside. While we stayed there we really enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. There was all kinds of tropical birds and animals that were just roaming around the property. At night it felt like a nature tape playing with the sounds of nature right outside our door which was a little loud with the windows open. We ate at the bar in the pool and the prices were very reasonable. The chicken fingers I have to say were awesome and the best food we had all week was this cheese sandwich. It was cut in a rectangle shape and it almost looked like fresh mozzerella but they threw it on the grill and kept its shape, than they put it on some fresh bread with lettuce and tomato and it was amazing. I guess it was their version of a grilled cheese. We could not get enough of it. Overall our stay here was relaxing and we enjoyed how low key it was. It was not fancy, I would say a solid 3 stars, clean and comfortable. If you go get the cheese sandwich!!!!

Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff was courteous and helpful booking side excursions. Grounds are lush with vegetation and secure. Breakfast was so plentiful we skipped lunch!
Pool and pool bar were peaceful with a great view of Mt. Arenal, try the nachos and a margarita after a long day. Best of all is the price!

Room Tip: 200 series rooms have a great private view of the volcano!

Rooms were very nice with a small outside sitting area in the gardens (which were lovely). We had a fantastic view of Arenal Volcano. Walls were thin and we could hear our neighbors' television. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Kids seemed to love the pool. The only downside is the restaurant - the menu was not appealing at all which was unfortunate since we did not have a car. However buffet breakfast was fine. A new restaurant is being constructed - hopefully with the new restaurant will come a new menu/chef.

Room Tip: One of our party required an accessible room. However, this room (#315) is located the furthest fro...

As a garden lover, this place was perfect for me. Of course the flowers and vegetation also attracted many birds which I loved. The rooms were large and comfortable and the pool and area was good. There is a large hot tub which we enjoyed as it can get chilly in Arenal, especially late in the day. The only meals we had here were 2 breakfasts and they were good.
