Not only do you have a great morning view at the free breakfast of the Volcano and the birds and town, but the hotel is located in walking distance from everything and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Not just that, they are fun and go out of the way to smile. They also have hot water and a... More

The hotel is located near the volcanoe, but doesn't offer a swim in the hot springs! Otherwise it's okay, but really off! The pool is too cold and they also overestimate themselves!!! Also they don't offer a observation tour! And they don't have a garden either

We had a nice stay at San Bosco. It's very centrally located, the rooms are small, no where really to place your stuff but still okay. The pool area is really nice and the breakfast they serve there is very good. The staff are kind and helpful. What I didn't like was the fact that they hire their parking lot... More

Before I even arrived, several of the front desk staff helped me arrange transfer from San Jose. It was a little complicated because I couldn’t print out the confirmation to fax back, but Jose, Cesar, and Leandro made it happen with ease. Once there, I was immediately impressed by the reception staff (all spoke excellent English and were patient when... More

I agree - this is a great hotel for the active traveller. Basic motel style hotel with a great view of Arenal across the pool. On a quiet back street close to the central park and main drag. Helpful staff, good breakfast.
