Secluded property with private bungalows. Feels like you're in the jungle. Nice pool and hot tubs, which came in handy after hiking the volcano and waterfall. Waterfall is within walking distance from the property and certainly worth the visit. Our room was very large with a private patio. Good wifi was also a plus.

Friendly staff lots of birds and other wildlife

Enjoyed the FIFO parrot joining us for breakfast. The burgers were monumental and delicious. The motel is a convenient drive to Fortuna and all sights of Arenal. The the the the the request for so much here will put people off submitting anything at all including me shortly if it demands more

Just Fantastic!

Pros: Its Facilities and the Staff.
Location: Close to the volcano, walking distance to the falls and 10 minutes driving to La Fortuna town.
I found this hotel and decided to reserve just for one night and stayed three more. I found a very nice facilities and its staff very friendly and please to help you. Frank and his sons are amazing. Breakfasts were very good and the location is convenience. Close to the volcano, walking distance to the falls and 10 minutes driving to La Fortuna town. I totally recomend to stay in this hotel.
