We stayed here the beginning of March and were very pleased. We did a lot of activities in the area such as canyoneering, whitewater rafting, going to the Baldi hot springs and the volcano hike, all of which we highly recommend. The hotel is several kilometers outside of La Fortuna so it is a $7 cab ride in. We heard some people complain that the cabs in town wouldn't bring them back to the hotel but we had our restaurant call a cab for us and didn't have a problem. As we were out of town we were usually the first picked up on an activity and the last dropped off. If your tour picks you up late it is likely not their fault as it seems that most tourists have an extreme lack of consideration for showing up on time for their pick up.
The staff was very helpful, especially when I asked for some old newspapers so I could dry out my shoes after river rafting. The maids left the towels in delightful shapes of elephants and swans, There is a breakfast buffet that is quite nice and the dinner was also nice. The grounds are quite large so there is a shuttle to drive you around which arrives very quickly after called.
