The road from La Fortuna to El Castillo is not paved and full of holes, so although they are very close, it took a long time to get from one place to the other. The view from our room was great, we could see the volcano really close, although we could not see the lake. The restaurant has affordable prices, really good food and the chef is very friendly.


The hotel has an amazing view of the arenal volcano. The rooms are nice and clean, but the bathroom could be bigger. The restaurant is great and has a good price, also the breakfast included is awesome. I recommend this place specially because you feel involved with the nature.
