We arrived on foot (in the rain) from the Bus Station at La Fortuna and this Hotel looked the best of all from the outside.
But I never judge from appearances.
The stay was just 2 nights, and the weather was fair with a lot of rain too (it was July in Costa Rica). The first night there was a terrific thunder and lightening storm - that it was impossible to venture out.
The Hotel to our surprise delivered a plate of fresh cut fruit to the room during the first evening. Dinner too was delivered to the room as they needed to close the restaurant earlier. High marks for customer service on both counts.
Breakfast was excellent, the rooms themselves were big, modern, very comfortable each with a large sit out balcony - with a close up view of Volcán Arenal itself (although shrouded in cloud). I am not a user of swimming pools - but the other guests made full use of it and the sound of families (all ages) enjoy the pool was not in the least distracting.
I really liked this hotel, met indeed surpassed expectations although not cheap it did represent good value in my opinion.
