We drove from Puerto Viejo at the Caribbean side, it took about 6 hour to reach La Fortuna, plus extra 45 minutes to get to el Castillo. the road is in good conditions and the hotel worth the dive. The View to both Lake and Volcano Arenal is the best Breakfast was excellent

we booked at nepenthe and as they did a mistake, we got to stay in Linda Vista. the view is great and the rooms are clean. the restaurant however has the atmosphere of a railway station and the breakfast was so so. if you want a great dinner, go over to the new restaurant at nepenthe. Chef Benedict is awesome!

My stay at the Hotel Linda Vista was amazing! The service was excellent, they were willing to cater to my every need. AlsoI really appreciated that their employees spoke Spanish and English. Even though the Hotel is located Near the Town, it is a great escape from the hustle and bustle. I absolutely recommend this Inn to anyone looking for... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014. We picked it because of a recommendation I received from my brother, who had stayed here a few years ago. The hotel is located on a hillside, and has a beautiful view of the Arenal Volcano as well as Lake Arenal and the surrounding hills. The road is... More

We recently stayed in one of the master suites for 3 nights.It was spacious,very clean and well maintained. It is wonderful to be awakened to the sounds of birds and howler monkeys. The stars are sparkling clear at night and most of the lighting is turned off at 11pm adding to the quality night sky. Being at some altitude above... More

This resort is one of nature's beauties. It is tucked away in the rainforest and away from any and all outside noises/distractions. the staff were incredibly nice. They were always waiting on us hand and foot. The rooms were all private and gorgeous. Food was BEYOND 5 stars, fresh and delicious! Make sure you bring a raincoat and plan accordingly... More

The staff at this hotel was so helpful in planning our time there. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite and it offered a wonderful view of Mt. Arenal. The room was clean but not luxurious. The roads leading to the hotel were an adventure - unpaved and twisty. Ergo we were not inclined to navigate them in the evening so... More

We stayed here on a vacation and loved the place. From our bed we could see the volcano and Lake Arenal. Wonderful. But, it is sometimes covered in clouds so you might not see anything. Food is very good and wonderful parrots to watch at feeding time. Good service and lots of local tours from the lobby. Try it. I... More
