5/5 Excellent

This is a very luxurious hotel and arguably the most prestigious in and around La Fortuna. Upon arrival we were greeted with a cold, refreshing beverage as well as a rolled up wonderfully fragrant face wash cloth; this was amazing considering our long road trip from Tortuguero. We are a family of four; I have a six year old and an eight year old. We had white robes waiting for us in our room, including the boys. Breakfast was included in our package and it was very good. There was definitely something for everyone. The coffee was superb. We were on a budget so we did not eat any other meals at the hotel besides the breakfast. We went to La Fortuna for our other meals. They offer a shuttle that takes you to the springs. It’s like a three minute drive and your there. The hot springs are beautiful, relaxing, and unforgettable. This hotel is also very close to the Arenal National Park and the 1968 Reserve Trail ( beautiful trail). And about a ten minute drive to La Fortuna. In La Fortuna try the Pops Ice cream- unbelievably delicious. While you can certainly find more affordable hotels in the area, this is “the hotel” to stay if you want to feel pampered and splurge a little. Now that said, since this is a 4/5 star hotel, you will be tipping frequently for things like valet, bringing ice to your room, breakfast, and the like (obviously not mandatory but sort of expected from the class of visitors that stay here). Overall, the hotel exceeded my expectations!

4/5 Good

The property included a natural thermal river which was the most unique experience. The service was great and friendly people. For the management...the food was super over priced... it actually is a rip off to be honest. Very disappointed on that side. I would recommend property but do not eat there which is unfortunate.

Everything from this property was excellent. The staff was beyond exceptional with the best courtesy and professionalism i have ever received. The rooms were very modern with a touch of costa rican culture, also very very clean. The amenities like the thermals waters was outstanding as well. The staff from the manager to the bellhops were outstanding. This resort knows what customer care is. If you go to costa rica, this resort is where you need to stay. Recommend %10000000
