Stay here for 2 nights , nice hotel. Cleaned and we'll Keats. Very large rooms. Friendly staff and reasonably priced. Highly recommend the horseback riding, wear bug spray tho. The road in can be a bit tricky in a small car but we had no problem. Very humid climate so if no one has been in your room for a few night before you your sheets will be damp and stinky, just have them change them and keep your air conditioner on dehumidify and it's all good. Definitely recompose staying here.

The rooms are fantastic. They're spacious bungalows, with a nice outdoors shower, average but good beds, nice terrace and an airco.
The pool was also good, with three hot tubs on the side. But the atmosphere just wasn't right. The service was friendly but lacked efficiency. There was some very annoying '50 - '80 music on the background at all time, and everything was a bit kitsch with the different color lights etc. (just see the pictures).
However it is a beautiful place, but that's just Costa Rica.

My cousin and I stayed at the resort for 4 days, and were treated like royalty the entire time. The staff was amazingly kind and hospitable, always helpful. The hot stone massage was decadent, and the food was very good.
The room was as even nicer than the pictures on the website, absolutely beautiful and relaxing! Since the room wasn't attached to any other lodging, it was quiet, peaceful, and felt like our own little oasis. The outdoor shower was fantastic and so enjoyable!
We did the Arenal tour and soaked in the hot springs, which was nice. The guide and driver for the tour were excellent, and even stopped along the way to show us toucans and a sloth. The rest of the time we just stayed at the resort and relaxed thoroughly.
The only drawbacks were that the resort was a ways away from other attractions or dining, and that the road is somewhat difficult getting to the resort (though not awful). However, we were aware of these aspects prior to the trip and did not find them off-putting at all.

We had quite some rain, so we were lucky to have a 4 wheel drive :-)
The service was awesome and the hot jacuzzi made the day perfect.

Note: remember to take Moscito spray with you

I also recommend the boat safari. Was a highlight. still you can go there with your own car and get the trip cheaper. the organization by the hotel costs of course but in this case you can enjoy the trip.

This resort is one of nature's beauties. It is tucked away in the rainforest and away from any and all outside noises/distractions. The spa/massage was amazing and the staff were incredibly nice. They were always waiting on us hand and foot. The rooms were all private and gorgeous. Outdoor shower and beautiful wood throughout the suite.The only negative we could say was the humidity level in the room left everything with a "damp" feeling. However, it is a rainforest! We felt so special with our candlelit dinner on the private patio and room decorated with roses. Food was BEYOND 5 stars, fresh and delicious! Make sure you bring a raincoat and plan accordingly if weather puts a samper on your plans. Make sure you go to the Rio Celeste Waterfall and take in the beautiful blue waters!! Be prepared for rocky, crazy roads to get to this getway, but it's all worth it!!
