This is a great location on beautiful grounds and an awesome staff. The lodging accommodations are beautiful. The hotsprings are indeed a must to enjoy. On a Road Scholar trip with a small group of new friends to visit the nearby volcanoe area.

We spent two comfortable nights at this beautiful resort. Most of the rooms have wonderful views of the volcano and we were lucky enough to have spectacular view while we were there. They have thermal pools. You will have a private bungalow with a screened porch and lovely grounds. There are lots of activities close by.

Highly recommend for families with kids. Very caring guides. Excellent views. Very safe! Good for first timers. Monkeys in trees. Great family adventure. Our 6 year old could do 2 short lines by himself. He'd been waiting our whole Costa Rican trip to zip line. It was a success. Guides were great!
