Reviews: ‘The location is just spectacular, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, hot springs rainforest all under the volcano. The rooms are very cosy, spacious and well decorated with lots of deep wood furnishings. A real great place to relax and re-energise.’
‘When you arrive the smiles on the faces of the staff are beaming, they were definitely ready to serve. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are very nicely appointed with towering views of the volcano. The free access to the hot springs when you stay is worth it.’
‘The junior suites are just perfect having private patios with sunken bath tubs in and granite and wood surfaces everywhere, very luxurious. The restaurant food was well priced and is some of the best in Costa Rica; also the waiters are very friendly.’
