We'd had such great hospitality in our previous hotel and we were expecting similar here but unfortunately that wasn't to be the case. Firstly the positive. The grounds were absolutely stunning, the garden is kept very well and the flora and fauna is really beautiful. The negatives. Seems like I had to ask for everything 3 times. The safe in...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of October and it was terrific. The cabinas are all pretty secluded so you feel like it is just you and nature. We had a beautiful view even though it was rainy season and pretty cloudy most of the time! The staff are all very helpful and nice....

The views and rooms were awesome and the staff, extraordinary. We felt so served, taken care of by all!! I recommend this to anyone going to Costa Rica! While here, be sure to head into town (La Fortuna) and sign up for a day of adventure with Costa Rica Descents (it's cheaper to do through them than through the hotel).

We stayed here in the off season and really enjoyed the quiet and tranquility of the hotel. Incredible grounds and views of the volcano. Great breakfast every morning. We were glad to have a rental car to be able to take the quick drive into town for dinners each evening. The room and the grounds really do look as amazing...

I loved this place! We booked this hotel on hotels.ca and got a fantastic deal. We booked a superior room because it was only a few dollars more and didn't realize the amazing amenities we would be getting. Our room was huge and beautiful with a king bed, huge flat screen tv, private garden, private jetted tub overlooking the volcano,...

This place is incredible, to start. Forget all the reviews you have read about this place because their complaints actually make this place fabulous! (walking to breakfast, foilage growing on your roof and showering with plants). You are in a rain forrest for Heaven's sake! Any way, this is a family run hotel and they deliver on personal service.

We loved this hotel so much that we canceled the second half of our vacation on the beach and stayed here. The staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They even went into town and bought the makings for Rice Krispie Treats for my sister's birthday! Perfect spot for honeymooners or a romantic getaway, but our...

The location, facilities and staff were excellant! We were treated like we were the only guests there. It is a beautiful place to relax. Plenty to do for those who are active also. The view of the volcano is magnificent. Want to go back ASAP!

We stayed at the hotel as family trip. We were 4 adults: mother, sister and two brothers. Rooms at the charming, though the smell of mildew in the shower, but you can expect that at this time of year (rainy season). A better time is after Nov 15, already the beginning of the dry season. Hotel's food is not the...
