We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 college age children. We stayed in a Master suite which had a large main room with a king bed.There was a second room with 2 twins beds. (My reservation stated it had 2 doubles which was not the case, but not a big deal)
The beds were hard which I liked but some may not. There were little ants in the bathroom that crawled constantly up the wall. Did not bite or bother us.
The kids room had a large gap in the bottom of their exterior door which allowed 2 inch long millipedes to crawl in. We swept 10 of them out the first night, then figured out if we blocked the bottom with a rolled up towel we could prevent them from coming in. Hey this is Costa Rica so we expected some nature contacts.
The bathrooms were good and the stone shower and tub gave it an outdoorsy feel.
We had our own plunge pool at our unit but the water was too cold.
The main pool was nicely heated and we enjoyed the waterfalls.
The view is gorgeous and this hotel is in a great location for enjoying Arenal attractions.
The grounds were pretty with lots of flowering bushes, trees.
The breakfast buffet was fine, lots of choices.
We ate one dinner in the restaurant and service was sooooo slow. Pricey, so for the rest of the meals we ate at local "sodas"...Costa Rican for local family run open air restaurants.
