We loved our two nights at mayol. They are super friendly. Yummy breakfast and a great location for walking to everything. Just one or two blocks away from viquez soda for lunch or the plaza in downtown. Alonso was super nice and helpful, printed our the bus schedule and gave us tips on which buses to take to San jose.

The Mayol Lodge is an excellent place to stay! Right upon arrival till departure the staff were very helpful and friendly. The location of Mayol is great for setting up tours or venturing out on your own to explore the Arenal country. The Lodge is clean and comfortable and I would recommend this place to any adventurer!! Mucho Gracias

We stayed at Mayol Lodge for 3 nights and could not have been happier! We wanted to stay two more, but they were all booked up. We ended up booking at another hostel and going back to Mayol for BBQs, karaoke and to hang out with the staff because they were so great!! Mayol is in a great location and... More

We only stayed here for one night and this hostel offers so much more than other hostels. The morning of our stay Alonzo took us to a rope swing into a waterfall and was so knowledgeable about his country. They offer free drinks and free breakfast upon arrival and it was delicious. The pool was clean and there was a... More

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.
