We went to enjoy the Baldi hot Springs for one day and enjoy the Arenal area. Most of the hotels we totally booked. I managed to find this one on line and booked it. We were pleasantly surprised that the rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We were welcome with a welcome drink beside the pool and had fun... More

Spent four nights at Mayol Lodge in a very comfortable, clean room, with a balcony overlooking the volcano (when it is visible!). Good location, close to the main street yet quiet. The pool looked lovely but we didn't use it as the weather wasn't good. The staff were pleasant, but could perhaps have been more forthcoming with information. Breakfast is... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel and were rather annoyed. The wifi signal did not reach our room, so we often went into the reception area to get a signal. But even when it showed a good signal, we often experienced slowness or inability to connect at all. This created a big nuisance for us as we attempted to... More

I booked a "classic private room", which did NOT have most of the things advertised on the website. It seems pricier rooms may be much better, but my room faced the noisy work yard of a car place next door, and it was right beside the lobby, with the TV always on. I could also hear the street traffic. I... More

Since the very first night the personal at the hotel was very kind, advising us where to eat and what tours to take, the pool was very clean and the room had its own bathroom and cable tv. The price was great and the location very nice. I highly recommend this lodge if you want to have fun without paying... More

The room was perfect, lots of space, comfortable bed, big bathroom, fast Internet, ceiling fan, etc. it has an incredible swimming pool (which I discovered by myself, since the staff didn't even mention they had a swimming pool). It is a pity the staff cared so little about the clients.

I have stayed there for 3 nights. It is loud due to its location right on a street and there is no possibility to close the windows of the standard room. There were ants and fleas in my bed. The bathroom was full of mold. They don t offer breakfast but the good thing is you are right in the... More

Stayed for 2 nights never saw the pool. Missed the orientation of the hotel. Need to go back to see this amazing pool. It sounds great. Lovely staff who looked after us well. Where's that pool though?!

This hotel doesn't cost much more than a private room in a backpackers hostel but this hotel gives you a large proper sufper clean hotel room with fan, a\c, TV, fridge and nice beds and own bathrooms. Hotel is located on the edge of town so nice and quiet with the pool backing onto the nice jungle clad river. Hotel... More

When I first walked into the hotel and I saw the pool area, I thought that the rooms would be beyond my budget. To my pleasant surprise the owner gave me a super reasonable discount rate. I ended up staying here for 2 months. I loved it. I know for a fact that no other hotel in the city could... More
