just got back from Costa Rica.

We arranged transfers and airport pickup with hotel, and worked out great. Much nicer and comfortable vans then local car services. they use higher end transfer services....Very happy we didnt rent a car, windy roads with no light at night...

W Hotel was very nice, modern hotel with some local vibe.

Great staff and rooms were newish and had porches with excellent views. They had lots of activities on sight. More hip/boutique style hotel compared to some of the larger hotels.

Springs hotel in Arenal was spectacular, best views I've seen...I was nervous bec wasn't modern looking but it was very clean and updated with a true Costa vibe. Staff was top notch and they were very accomodating with our Pomergranit meals.
They stored it, heated it, and served in their restaurant based on our schedule (they knew  not to open the double wrap and we kept it on the table for "maras Oyin").
