    The wait staff was fantastic! However, the Villa did not have an oven, microwave or even a kitchen sink. We could not get groceries and cook at the Villa.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Staff was very friendly. The complimentary breakfast was better than I expected. The property is large and rooms are very spacious. The property is close to all of the attractions in La Fortuna. I love that this property was surrounded by nature. It was like you were staying in a botanical garden with various species of flowers, trees, birds and there was also a frog pond.

    Stay away from this cheesy disney copycat

    The rooms were ok but the toilet wouldnt flush and there were thousands of ants covering the furniture on the patio where someone had left food out there that never got cleaned. My wife and I bought the honeymoon couples massage and for 2 straight hours there was a guy pressure washing the building nest to the open air spa. We asked to have him stop, nobody did. Then they refused to refund my money for the treatment (over 300$). When checking out they charged us for more than we ordered and after 35 mins of them not being able to figure it out we just left. The management is greedy and doesnt care about the customer, and held our money hostage. The girl at the front desk and the bartender were fantastic

    We loved this hotel so much. The staff was very friendly and did whatever they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The rooms were large, spacious and very comfortable. The bathrooms are really cool with the waterfall (I saw some negative comments about the bathroom waterfall and we had nothing but great things to say about it). The back porches were really pleasant and the Private hot tub Back there were really nice. The view from the pool and the restaurant of the volcano was incredible. The food at the restaurant was really good as well (both dinner and breakfast). The hotel is very centrally located being just about 10 minutes from La Fortuna, about 20 minutes from the hanging bridges and the 1968 hiking trail, and close to the hot spring resorts. The staff took COVID very seriously and had very serious cleaning standards. We felt very comfortable the entire time, and we are taking COVID very seriously. Overall, cannot say enough good things!

    Rooms/resort laid out oddly, bathroom was weird

    Firstly, I'll say that we stayed at 3 different resorts in this area. So we have a good basis to compare. This resort has a weird layout, as if it was a ski resort, with the front desk being at the "base lodge" and the rooms being in their own buildings up and into the "piste map". We got room 322 which was at the very very back of the resort. Unlike other resorts, there was nothing at the back, you must walk all the way to the front to use the pool, come to concierge/front desk, use the restaurant, etc. They have golf carts as a shuttle service, however. If you rented a car, you must park it down by front desk, and have a golf cart drive you all the way back to your room, which is annoying for large families and check in check out process. The room had a large cavernous bathroom, that felt very much like a highway rest stop bathroom. It had a "waterfall style" shower, along with a regular shower. But this proved not as useful, and in fact invited a few large bugs to crawl into the room. We were frightened by a beetle/cockroach looking bug that was approx 3-4 inches long. For the nightly rate of this resort, we stayed at another resort down the main road that was slightly cheaper and just as nice without the unnecessary frills and spread-out geography. Wifi was nice though, as was the bed, AC, staff were friendly, and the breakfast buffet was excellent value (though other resorts nearby at similar prices have these). I wouldn't stay here again, honestly.

    Wonderful property. Very very very clean.

    This property was extremely clean and pristine! The rooms were large and the waterfall shower was a neat touch. The pool area was terrific as well. We weren't impressed with the food at dinner, but the breakfast was great. At dinner, we had a waiter that seemed new and he didn't really seem interested in us. The lady that ran the food was more concerned with us and seemed nice. The head bartender at the pool was AWESOME and very entertaining. He even "smoked" a glass in front of us for a special drink. So cool!

    The air conditioning was broken/ made intense cycling noise every 20 minutes and half the lights in the room did not function. Common areas are very nice though.
