Fodor's Review

Convenient to both Rincón de la Vieja and Santa Rosa National Park, these very affordable, two-bedroom villas and standard rooms are part of a working farm owned by a Costa Rican family. The tidyvillas have full kitchens,hot water, Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning; the 16 spacious motel-style rooms have the same creature comforts as the villas (minus the kitchens),with double beds plus a view of the volcano from a deck under a giant Guanacaste tree. A breakfast buffet is included in the rate, but taxes are not. There's a river and swimming hole on the property, and the hotel can arrange various tours including biking, canopy, horseback riding, and river rafting.
