The view of the volcano is amazing from any terrace of the hotel. Rooms are set cabin type so there is a lot of space in between rooms, there is a nice terrace with huge windows facing the volcano so you can see it all day long if you want.
The rooms are basic but very spacious, super clean and sorrounded by beautiful and well cared gardens. There is a fridge that comes very handy for water bottles and sodas (get your water The restaurant was decent, a little overpriced to be in Costa Rica ( entrees 20- 25 dollars) but food is good. During dinner time when the restaurant is crowded may take a while to get served.
Staff is extremely nice, they are happy all the time and willing to help. It has different pools so it never gets really crowded when you are swimming, has hot tubs which are great and relaxing.
Town is 10 mins away with a taxi toll of 15 to 20 dls each way but is worth going out for dinner. There is a frog garden walking distance from the hotel and they offer night walks through the rainforest to see frogs, that was super cool, same ticket is good for morning walks as well.
We were a group of 10 and we all enjoyed our stay there. Please consider that July is rainy season and by that i mean you will be wet no matter what. Excursions dont stop, be sure you are prepared with boots, raincoat and set your expectations to have fun despite the rain.
Note that 10% gratuity is already included in every meal ticket.
