Great place on west side of lake
We choose this location due to it being on the western side of Lake Arenal. Hotel is in a beautiful hillside location with a view of the lake and volcano (when not cloudy). Land is landscaped and mature grounds with lots of fruit trees, flowering trees, bushes etc. It has an outdoor "pool" but is small but still lovely. We did have an issue with mosquitoes near it so we couldn't enjoy it. Our hostess was so friendly and helpful and spoke English well. We were there during low season and were the only guests we were aware of. They still provided dinner and breakfast for us as our hostess called in staff just for us! The dinners we had were all wonderful - pastas, seabass, chicken in white wine and a homemade pizza. We ordered from the menu ahead of time and the staff made sure they could prepare them - talk about going above and beyond. We did pay for these meals but breakfast was provided in room rate and was also delicious - fresh fruits, homemade bread and jam, eggs and gallo pinto. Rooms are all part of a connected building with large front patios all facing the lake. Lots of hammocks and chairs to sit outside and enjoy surroundings Our room was for 4 - double bed and bunk bed. Bathroom had update large shower. Our only issue was there is no air conditioning - just a large open, screened window and a ceiling fan. We were all a bit uncomfortable sleeping due to heat. Area windy and surrounding area has large wind turbines which some may not like.

Beautiful relaxing property and Barbara (the owner) took great care of us! I would highly recommend this property for a relaxing, “zen” type of vacation experience. The food was good (pasta is made fresh in house), the stone splash pool was beautiful, and the walking trails are full of monkeys and other amazing wildlife.

An idyllic place for a getaway
The setting for the hotel is idyllic and it is the perfect place for a quiet getaway. The property has beautiful landscaping and a spectacular view of Lake Arenal. A porch outside each room has comfy chairs and a hammock that are the perfect places to soak in the beautiful surroundings. Rooms have no TV or Wifi, but Wifi is available in the main building, where there are quiet places to sit and use Wifi if you choose. The main building also has a cozy fireplace with a sitting area. The menu in the restaurant was limited but everything we ate was excellent and inexpensively priced. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Recommendations they offered for activities outside the property were fabulous. The masseuse was outstanding. Although says that the property does not have a front desk, they certainly do. One only need call to make arrangements if arriving after 9pm.

Rustic Comfort
Loved the energy of this place! Brad checked us in and could not have been a more gracious host! The breakfast was incredible, as was the view and grounds. The room felt a bit like camping, but overall was just what we needed. We didn’t realize that there’d be no dinner or yoga avail due to time of year. Brad did offer to provide dinner if we wanted. I’d love to go back when there’s more activities offered! We enjoyed a day trip to Monteverde, as well as a hike to see a 500 year old tree!

we booked this hotel on the way from Fortuna till Tambor. It was only for 1 night and for us this hotel is perfect "on the way".The room was simple but clean. The kids liked the garden. a point for improvement is the breakfast. WIFI only at the lobby, not in the rooms.
