Lomas del Volcan had the nicest grounds of the hotels we stayed at while in Costa Rica. Each room is really a cottage with plenty of space between your neighbors. High ceilings, a big bathroom, a nice patio with a table and chairs are among the amenities. Along with the fabulous view, we had a large flowering bush next to... More

Our family of 4 stayed for 3 days at Lomas del Volcan. The individual cabins were very nice and we all slept very well. The porches were a real plus. The grounds were beautiful and plush with ample wildlife, especially birds. Our family enjoyed the buffet breakfast and this was our favorite gallo pinto.

we were thoroughly disappointed with our stay here. The location and grounds were fantastic, however we arrived on the final leg of our honeymoon we were greeted at check in and presented our reservation and credit card. Once all payment details were taken care of we were given a brief tour of the main lobby and then shown our room.... More

Hi majmac! We really regret that situation that day. As part of a daily work, some times things happen without a previous sign and we have to take decisions at the moment. Incidentaly that day we overbooked the hotel but it was not intencional and considering we are in the peak of the high season of tourism, it was impossible... More

Imagine, a country cabin in the foothills of a volcano. Beatifully manicured landscape, tropical climate, picture postcard views in all directions. This is paradise or the closest thing to it. The cabins are gorgeous, superbly appointed and simply outstanding comfort. The grounds are imaculate. Birds, flowers, trees and the sounds of nature all in the shadow of a magnificent volcano....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had lodge 507 and had a wonderful view of the volcano all the time we were there. The lodge was lovely and we especially enjoyed the private balcony where we sat and watched the birds, also watched the resident coati! Up its own long driveway Lomas is well away from any traffic noise... More

The grounds at Lomas del Volcan are very beautiful. We had a cabin at the very end which was a 5 to 10 minute steep uphill walk from reception and the restaurant. The cabin was very nice with a balcony and a large bathroom. The only drawback to the hotel is the distance from town. If you don't have a... More

We spent our second night in La Fortuna at the Hotel Lomas del Volcan. The rooms are "rustic" cabins constructed of beautiful hardwoods. The room was spacious and clean, though a bit dark with only a couple single light bulbs in the main room. There was a patio out back where we could view the forest and animals (birds and... More

We chose this hotel based upon it's location, individual bungalows and the high ratings on Trip Advisor. We spent 3 nights and had room 506 which we were very happy with. We had an excellent view of the volcano and were off to the side of the grounds away from the higher traffic areas. The attached covered porch is a... More

You couldn't ask for a more picturesque location. The grounds are very well kept and beautiful, and the volcano is literally in the background everywhere you go on site. Our bungalow was spacious and clean, and it was nice to have our own separate oasis. The back patio has a nice table and chairs for relaxing and enjoying the view.... More
