If you're going to see the volcano or do Sky Limit tours, this is the best spot to spend the night(s). The location is key, pool & hot tub are top notch, and it is family owned. They were extremely hospitable and I felt they were genuinely happy to have me there. They even asked me to be in an... More

A rustic feel, the hotel was a comfortable stay for wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. The views are incredible, the pool and hot tub were warm and inviting. The food was mediocre and the service was nice. The room accommodations were what you would expect from a hotel that is away from... More

Their view is incredible. But the room they initially gave us was not what I'd purchased given the photos & description on Hotels.com. It was a pretty basic room & had no relationship to what was posted. My biggest concern was to have the pillowtop mattress due to a medical issue. When I asked, they said that they wanted to... More

Stayed here and paid extra to get the volcano view. In theory, that would be great if it didn't rain the entire time we were there. Rooms were pretty basic but fine...it's Costa Rica remember. The power went out during the middle of the night so we didn't have A/C. We had dinner at the excellent restaurant on site and... More

The views are amazing, the rooms are, well, not what we expected from all the reviews here. They shopped at the "uncomfortable store" and ordered premium line… like sleeping on wood, the pillows were lumpy and hard. Don't think you are going to sleep past sunrise - the roosters take care of that… The food is really expensive at the... More

The 20 minute drive on the dirt "road" (I use the term loosely) is definitely rough but we felt it was worth it for the magnificent views at the end. We were extremely lucky and had two clear days to have perfect views of Arenal Volcano from our junior suite (and also from the public terrace by the beautiful infinity... More

Horrible rain and wind during our stay, but can't fault the accommodations. Staff was helpful in directing us to the EcoZoo which was amazing. Room was as advertised, A/C kept it cool. You absolutely need 4-wheel drive to get there.

Stayed at the Linda vista with my wife and 9 year-old daughter, and we loved it. We all enjoyed the infinity pool, from which we could enjoy views of both Arenal volcano and Lake Arenal. Really, there were excellent views from just about anywhere on the grounds, especially from the large balcony of our room. The staff were very friendly... More

We loved this hotel. The staff was great and the views are spectacular. We mostly just hung out at the hotel, watched the birds (amazing!) and saw the world transforming around us as the weather changed. The rooms are little rustic but very clean. The hotel is very close to the entrance of the National park and a short walk... More

We booked online. We were in room 4. The room: Cable with lots of channels. Double bed and twin bed. Ceiling fan with no air condition. Bathroom had hot water. Closet with hangers and a safe large enough for a laptop that doesn't cost any extra to use. Room fours window had a direct view of Arenal Volcano. Dining: Breakfast... More
