    The view from the property of the mountains and Lake Arenal are truly what make this property special. The food is also amazing with a farm to table philosophy.

    This is by far the most incredible hotel grounds we’ve ever stayed at. The staff is wonderful, and you cannot beat the view! The trails are amazing, they have games and bikes for the kids (and adults) and we had the best trip imaginable. The beds are extremely uncomfortable, however, the rest of the inn makes up for it. The food is great and every drink special we had was wonderful! We will definitely be back!

    Great location and staff. Although the rooms are a bit rustic and old, they have done a great job at making them pleasant to the customers.

    Great spot! Highly recommend.

    A wonderful location right outside of the main town. The view, when it is clear, of the coast is incredible. The family room we staying in was small but clean and comfortable. The place has a fun play area for kids and the walking trails around the property are amazing. I highly recommend staying here if you are bringing kids. The staff was very responsive and friendly and the breakfast was good.
