This hotel was perfect for our family ( 3 Adults 2 Children ages 1 and 5) . The room had a kitchen with everything we needed. The supermarket is next door. The pool was great and the grounds are beautiful. The best part about the hotel is David the owner. He is one of the nicest people you are going... More

Hotel Bijagua was our 2nd hotel in costa rica after a long flight and we took a time out at the small pool area with a wonderful sight to the volcano, which is really close. We had a warm welcome, a spacious, clean room in a calm area in the second row. Good restaurants are nearby and we would love... More

This was our favourite hotel during our trip to Costa Rica. Located slightly away from the main part of town, it is still very convenient for the tours and activities in the area. The staff were all very friendly and helpful with booking taxis, recommendations etc. The rooms were absolutely spotless and very comfortable. Although the pool is quite small... More

First of all David-the owner is amazing! So helpful and knowledgeable. If he was not sure of a location or activity he would help us look it up and draw maps and everything. When you drive up to his hotel you would never know the hidden gem behind the gates. Lovely pool area with a little waterfall and luscious gardens... More

I stayed at Hotel Bijagua for 4 nights with my family this March. We had a rental car, and the hotel was perfectly situated in order for us to experience La Fortuna and other attractions in the nearby surrounding area. When you enter the hotel you are welcomed firstly by the always friendly David (and may be lucky to see/meet... More

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights during my visit to Arenal. The rooms were clean and spacious. It is a small property but it is located close to a supermarket and many eateries. The staff was extremely helpful in providing accurate information regarding places to see and gave good discount for Baldi Hot Springs.

This place is a great way to stay at a hotel with amenities near by (restaurants, grocery store, and tours) without the hustle of being located in town. Plus it is only a $3 cab ride to the main town. We arrived early, and David the owner, greeted us and informed us that our room was not yet ready, but... More

This property is a gem! Stayed here for 3 days and could have stayed longer. The room was clean and comfortable, the pool area was lovely, and David was so friendly and helpful. It was a fantastic way to start our Costa Rican holiday. A bit of a walk into town but lots of places close by to eat. Definitely... More

This hotel is much more proximate to the town of La Fortuna (where restaurants and other signs of civilization are found) than the large resorts with springs which are about 10 minutes from the town if you have a car available. Hotel Bijagua is compact but very well-designed and landscaped. It is one of those little gems that travelers hope... More

Great hotel with a superfriendly owner. He really makes you feel like home. The rooms are spatious, extremely clean, good bedding and nice bathroom. We had a room with a kitchen which is a surplus because no breakfast is served. It's better if you have a car. Pool area is nice.
