Positive Reviews

Friendly Staff

The staff members were found to be friendly people who helped their guests with their requests. They assisted with taxis and tours. Some guests felt they were taken care of nicely by the staff who were not overbearing but were available if needed.

Nice Pools

Many guests enjoyed the various thermal mineral water pools that were dispersed in the property as they were a good opportunity to enjoy the warm water and relax. They took advantage of the spa as well that offered various treatments.

Volcano Views

The volcano views that were seen from the rooms and common areas of the resort were found to be beautiful and ideal by many guests. The Arenal Volcano could be seen and the views were spectacular. The place is quiet and in the middle of nature.

Negative Reviews

No Wi-Fi

Some guests reserved their accommodations thinking there would be in room Wi-Fi. They found out the Wi-Fi is not available in the rooms. They would have preferred to have in room Wi-Fi.

Poor Food Choices

Some guests felt the restaurant could do a better job at offering local dishes rather than western fast food meals. They felt the price was a bit high for the average quality and wanted to taste the real Costa Rica.

Old Fashioned Rooms

The rooms and cabins were found to be decorated in an old fashioned manner, with bedding and sheets in need of a change. The beds were not as comfortable for some guest tastes and the furnishings were basic.
