Staying for three nights. Staff was really friendly. Location is nice and clean, but noisy rooms in the front part (cheaper rooms without AC). Something I'll probably remember for life was the free tour with the "frogman" Giovanni

We had a great stay in La Fortuna at Mayol Lodge. Breakfast was ok, room was totally functional and the price was really good. However it was the little touches that made our trip - the free jungle hike Mayol Lodge offers was even better than many similar hikes we had paid for...! Alonso was absolutely great and went above... More

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
