clean and nice place and would go back again for sure! we were pleasantly surprised, I was a bit unsure because it was such a good price. It was about a very short drive to the town. We went with a big group of friends and everyone was very happy. The staff was helpful and friendly, great service. The place... More

Unlike to large resorts/hotels in La Fortuna, Villas Eco Arenal is a nice and quiet lodge with a good view (if the clouds allow) of the Arenal vulcano. The room was clean, air conditioned and had a nice view. The breakfast was prepared by a friendly lady, who made sure we had a proper start of the day. The gardener... More

We stayed here with our 5 year old son for two weeks, using it as our base as we travelled around North and Central Costa Rica. The grounds are wonderful for spotting wildlife and the whole place is wonderfully peaceful. The breakfast included was really great. All staff were fantastic and particularly helpful when we had some issues contacting a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in early March. First time in Arenal region, didn't want to pay $250+ for hot springs resort type places, just seems too much for the area. Found rooms here under 100 per night. It's a five minute drive from La Fortuna down solid dirt road, has lovely grounds and considerate helpful staff. As with all... More

Perfect location: just a few minutes north of La Fortuna downtown, this hotel gives you quick access to all the amazing tours and activities available in the Arenal volcano area, without compromising your need for a relaxing atmosphere. It's easily accessible by car (there's a small section of the road that is not paved, as you get closer to the... More

I was there with a group of 15 people. All of our cabins were small but were kept clean and had all the essentials (A/C, hot water, fast WIFI). The breakfast included was delicious typical Costa Rican food and fresh tropical fruits. The cabins are surrounded by beautiful gardens with flowers and trees and a creek runs by the hotel... More

Stayed 1 night. Be careful booking with Expedia! They undercharged us which meant we had to pay the difference at check in. Front desk guy was reasonable and cut us a deal, as they were in the middle of terminating their contract with Expedia. Beautiful hotel and grounds, rooms were spacious, comfortable, clean - all around excellent. Fast WiFi, hot... More

Our cabin at Eco Arenal was small, but had all the essentials including wi-fi. It was clean and cozy and the breakfast was included every morning. The food was good and fresh and the grounds were beautiful with flowers and tropical plants everywhere. There was a stream running along the property and lots of birds and squirrels to entertain you.
