Amazing place!
Pradnya Ranade
The hotel has great views, very helpful staff. The only issue with this hotel is the road to the hotel, it's really bad! We stayed there for 4 days and after couple days we kind of got used to the road. We had a flat tire too because of the road, but the amazing Costa Rican people helped us. You need to have a really good car SUV and better if you want to commute to this hotel.
Great value
Richard Shotts
The accommodations were very good.  Getting there was no small task, however, once we arrived it was very comfy.  The next morning we had great views and the staff was very friendly.   I do think the free drink should have included a Coca Cola.  Overall I would stay again
Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer
Tara Shields
The cabina we stayed in was just lovely and had beautiful views. We loved the vernanda and the little lawn where the kids were able to play. The bathroom and bedroom were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful. We were only there overnight, but if I had it to do again I would gladly stay longer.
Great Hotel

My 17 year old daughter, husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cabin 28 at Linda Vista. The privacy was so wonderful and the tile porch facing the volcano and the lake was a pure delight. We had the great fortune to watch holler monkeys play in the trees from our kitchen window...such a special and rare treat! (Ana, one of the receptionists, told me to look out our kitchen window occasio nally just in case the monkeys came to the trees below our cabin.) We didn't mind the walk to the restaurant and pool. It was good exercise. However, we were glad to be there during the "dry" season (last week of March 2012). Remember this area is a rain forest! Brian gave us such a warm reception upon our arrival at 8:30 PM. We were so tired after traveling all day. The three receptionists (Brian, Ana, and Bernardo) were very helpful. The waiters were all very nice, especially Wagner, Hilbert, and the night manager. We drank the water from the faucets in our room, ate all the fresh fruit and vegetables there and our stomachs were and have been fine. If you like to stay at places that capture the essence of a country (as opposed to a Hyatt), then this is the place to stay. The view from and the grounds of the hotel and the restaurant are beautiful. Our cabin (Jr. suite) was sparsely furnished, but spacious and comfortable. The water pressure was excellent!...

A Pleasant Place
Brian Ritchie
A enjoyed a simple, relaxed breakfast, a peaceful Jacuzzi under the stars and a cheerful and helpful staff. These might seem of small issue but we were sorry to leave Linda Vista del Norte and other places were never quite as pleasant.
