Fodor's Review

There's much to recommend this hillside lodging, most of all the large picture windows and balconies overlooking Lake Arenal and the attentive service from the owners. Standard rooms have white tile floors and paintings by local artists. Higher up the hill, spacious bungalows with kitchens afford an even better view and are further away from the road. With over 30 varieties of palm trees, this is a great place for bird-watching, and an on-site nature guide helps you delve

into what you'll see here. All rooms are nonsmoking. A huge breakfast with homemade tortillas and breads is included, and the Gingerbread restaurant next door is a favorite with guests for dinner.
