Pool is great, but there is no kitchen and the place has no character🥲

Loved our stay at Arenal, it felt like its own little sanctuary in the midst of La Fortuna. Felt safe and staff was very kind. Every space was very clean. Air conditioning in the private room was awesome. The pool bar isn’t really a thing but they do have alcohol for sale 5 feet away from the pool which was a good deal. Would highly recommend this place!
