The property felt like it was in a forest itself. The lighting was fun. The pool table was fun for us and the kids. Walking distance to town, although a slightly long walk after hiking all day. The staff were OUTSTANDING!!! Mich, and the morning young lady as well as the cook staff for breakfast every day - were the best. We can't say enough. Everyone, I mean, everyone we saw and met, were so friendly. Unmatched by anywhere else I've been.

8/10 Very Good

Overall the hotel is pretty good, very clean, comfortable and well kept. however is needs some fine tuning. The hotel seems pretty new and still under construction, but the pool area doesn’t have any lighting. My boyfriend hit his toe pretty hard on the concrete trying to get to the jacuzzi. Besides that, the hotel only offers breakfast, so if you want to eat dinner or lunch, you either have to drive somewhere or order delivery. Also, there are no phones in the room, so you need to use whatsapp to contact them, and it’s hard to get in touch with them sometimes. They also don’t provide ice, so we had to buy ice in the supermarket to make our own drinks (their bar only serves beer).

This was a last minute book but turned out one of the best places I’ve ever stayed at. Wish I stayed here longer unfortunately only stayed one night. Best service I’ve ever received and the front desk help me set up an excursion. Would recommended this place if anyone is staying in La fortuna. A less then a mile away from restaurants and bars.
