Seemed like it was going to be a very nice place from the website, but the accommodations we were in were more like cabins you might have on a camping trip. Shower sprayed all over the place. Water didn't stay warm for very long. Bed was uncomfortable and creaked. Meals were quite expensive for what you get. That being said, the thermal pools were nice, and the hanging bridge complex was quite impressive. Staff was very friendly, but it did usually take a few requests to get what you asked for. They provided towels for us to go spend a day at the beach, though, which was above and beyond on that one.


great place very out there away from it all.


The hotel, the views, and the staff were all great!


Staff much less welcoming and happy than in Arenal or the tour guides. But we loved the horse ride to the spa...
