8/10 Very good

We liked that it was an easy check in process and very good location. Close to restaurants, grocery, bars, coffee, etc. also front desk gentleman was super nice, he even went out to the market to get us some Arroz con leche as we mentioned it was something we were really trying to find. What a wonderful thing to do! Room was a motel size and with very good AC. We all slept like babies. It’s gated property so we felt secure. All in all it is what we expected and more! Another great deal from Expedia!!

Very highly recommended in La Fortuna/Arenal area.
This is a beautiful property, only 9 lodging spaces in this gated property. Perfect location between La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano, with a 1/2 dozen restaurants and shops within walking distance, and a grocery store next door. Only a 2 minute ride (or 20+/- minute walk) to La Fortuna main street. Walled property has a private pool with gazebo to enjoy outdoor air and a view of the volcano. Our villa deluxe room has kitchen set up and tile bath, roomy enough for 3. Pool table in office area. Very nice people! Our 5 night stay was wonderful.
