Beautiful, quiet and peaceful place. We absolutely enjoyed the jacuzzi, the pool, the views, the birds, the restaurant. Excellent place.
The place is nice, people really helpful and friendly
It’s far away from everything you want to see in La Fortuna, and almost no buses.
Very comfortable and for everyone theres something here. I stayed in one of their tents and it was great to feel a part of nature. The spa services are highly recommended and the food was amazing too!
Excellent location, scenery, food and staff. Cannot praise them enough!
The view is stunning of lago Arenal and the volcano. We stayed in a fancy tent in the jungle. Two yoga classes per day and a lovely pool. The food was excellent and healthy.
