Each room is a separate bungalow with a porch on the front & the back-great views of the volcano! Rooms are spacious enough with a large bathroom. The hotel is more secluded than many of the other area hotels, which we enjoyed. The pool is nice. We ordered lunch, which was brought out to us at the pool. Breakfast was... More

Lomas del Volcan was the perfect choice for our family vacation. We were three adults,including me,the 77 year old grandma, one teen-ager and three 11 year olds. Everyone loved the hotel and the activities available. Each family had its own "villa", a large bedroom,bath and two verandas,one of which was nestled just below the volcano. You can hike through the... More

Nicely situated at the bottom of the volcano Arenal. This propriety features cabins though they do have more hotel style rooms (which I felt were kind of dark and I strongly suggest the cabins in the 500's as they sit on the hill being the closest to the volcano.) Each cabin has a small front porch, refrigerator, coffee maker and... More

We can't say enough about how wonderful Lomas Del Volcan is! We spent 5 days there and loved it. Lomas Del Volcan is an absolutely beautiful resort. Our cabin (404) backed onto a forested area and is close to the pool,hot tub, front desk and the restaurant. Yet it is far enough away from other cabins and the facilities that... More

We arrived at La Fortuna and were lucky enough to find this amazing hotel. Don't be fooled by some of the big resorts with hot springs, they are sadly overrated. Lomas del Volcan far and away surpassed them and our expectations. The casitas are gorgeous with lots of gleaming wood and big bathrooms. Whether you have views of the volcano... More

This was the most amazing lodging I have ever had! Our cabin/bungalow (507) was at the foot of Arenal volcano. We watched the volcano emerge from the morning fog every day, with freshly brewed Costa Rican coffee in hand, truly spectacular. A short walk to the dining/pool area with really excellent breakfast buffet every morning included in the price. Servers... More

Very nice hotel. Would highly recommend it if you want a perfect view of the volcano. This place is where you should go if you want beauty and peacefulness. The rooms are a bit dark. Wifi worked on our deck. Bring a hair dryer if you need one. Overall, we were very happy we chose this hotel. When in LaFortuna... More

The location is prime for views of the volcano and the grounds are immaculate. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well appointed. Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the staff especially friendly or helpful, particularly the front desk staff. I stayed at four other places in CR and this staff was the least friendly of the group. I did... More
