The 26 rooms offer spectacular views of the Pacific, the Arenal Volcano, and the beautiful surrounding landscape, which provides a dramatic and unforgettable stay.

So make sure you try the national liquor guaro, made from sugarcane, and the Four Roses margarita. Interpreted from traditional Costa Rica dishes, the Celajes Restaurant serves world-class dishes overlooking world-class views, created by the hotel’s head chef and served on splendid balconies.
