Just OK hotel, good value.
This hotel was just OK. It was out of town but close to the best hot springs. Room was quiet and spacious but the beds were not comfortable. Full breakfast was great, wifi works only in hotel restaurant. Two pools, but don't be tricked by the effect in the picture. One of the pools (the nicer one with the view) is actually quite small and not always full. We had to ask for staff to fill it up. I feel like the hotel was understaffed.

Basic Hotel with no frills and poor service.
One night in Arenal. Bathroom was dirty, we only were given 2 towels. Beds were uncomfortable. Check in was complicated. We came with a dog as site says dogs welcome and we even called hotel in advance but when we turned up only some rooms allow dogs so took sometime to resolve. We booked this last minute as the first hotel we chose was unacceptable and for this one night they upped their charges on the site for $81 to $250 as it was a holiday weekend !!!!. Poor food not fresh or hot. No response when we raised these issues.

Enjoyed the stay
I think it's a good for the traveler that doesn't need the full resort experience, but wants a nice place with quite room. The hotel staff speaks good English. The hotel is 10 min outside of town in a beautiful natural setting. the grounds are nice and well maintained, and the hotel staff is friendly and accommodating. The road sign isn't well lit, and Google maps took us 1km too far (maybe use Waze if arriving at night.) The breakfast is served under a canopy where you can listen to the sound of the rain and feel a gentle breeze while you drink your coffee,
