The place had everything we need and was very clean. The view is spectacular, overlooking Lake Arenal and we were there when the volcano was able to be seen clearly. You will have to plan on driving 1 1/5 to 2 hours for the tourist "spots" but coming back after a day of touring to peace and quiet of just the forest was amazing.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

Owner Operator Bev And all the staff are very friendly, efficient and reliable and consistently went above and beyond for us. The Casita was beautiful and clean, perched on the edge of the forest where a family of howler monkeys visited every day. We also loved the nightly dance of the lightning bugs. Felt like little kids again, with the world full of wonder. Meg and Dave

                                                                      Incredible views

                                                                      The house itself is in a beautiful area overlooking the lake. The house is pretty much all glass so you get to see the stunning view from sun up to sun down. This is definitely more of a leisurely vacation area as the more adventurous activities are a two hour drive around to the other side of the lake. And we definitely enjoyed our leisurely stay. The pool was fabulous, we had the best massages from their masseuse in the spa and everyone was so nice! Eating at Gingerbread and Brisas Restaurant are a must. Loved it all!

                                                                      The casita we stayed at was ver private and clean.

Definitely would stay there again. And we love the area and country and could see us moving there in the future.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Francois P.

We enjoyed the privacy, tranquility and the abundant wildlife--just a few steps from the wrap-around terrace. The casita was well stocked and very clean.

                                                                      Visiting the clubhouse for sun and pool was very convenient and picture perfect. Honestly, everywhere you look, it's just gorgeous on the grounds! Melissa (Bev's assistant) arranged a horseback ride for us at the very end of our stay; it was the perfect way to end our time there. I was really sad to say goodbye.

                                                                      Disadvantages would be how far this area is from other areas of interest. You do have to drive quite a ways to visit the La Fortuna area and the Monteverde Cloud Forest.

                                                                      Thanks Bev and Melissa for such a fabulous stay. We hope so much to return to Vista del Laguna!
