Our 10 day tour of Costa Rica organized by G Adventures included a two night stay at Volcano Lodge in La Fortuna. We found it was a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing. The springs are arranged so that friendly waiters can bring you drinks while you are soaking in the mineral water. Right off the springs... More

We enjoyed our private hot spring in our patio. It was also nice at the restaurant and the breakfast buffet was very good. We really loved walking in the paths throughout the large resort property. We were able to hear our neighbors talking in their room so we closed the bathroom door and turned up the air conditioner. There was... More

This is a very comfortable hotel. Large rooms, ours had a patio facing Arenal Volcano, which we actually caught a good glimpse of, in spite of cloudy weather. The grounds are beautiful, and quite large. There is a great pool area, with a really well laid out thermal area, which is kept sparkling clean. We enjoyed our stay very much.... More

We had a private hot spring in our back yard over looking the volcano!!! It was great! The employees were fun and very helpful . The food at the restaurant was exceptional. The breakfast buffet was okay but it is free so we did take advantage of of it. The sodas all around town are

The view was amazing, room was super clean, staff was very friendly, plus the birds by the restaurant was super cool. The hot springs were just right. Wish we got to spend more time here because we were astonished at the value. Breakfast was the best we had in Costa Rica (hotels we stayed at in other parts of country... More

Enjoyed the thermal pools, had a great dinner and enjoyed all the birds at breakfast. Staff were friendly. One thing, don't appreciate when the conversion is made in US dollars rather than from local currency.

the place was nice and we felt sage however the photos were not as I expected. The spring area was very small and it looked so much larger on line. Very detailed staff with no comprise on some of the food items. The bed was rock hard with limited pillows as we requested extra.

We really enjoyed our stay at this resort. From the welcome drink and friendly staff at the front desk, to entering our room with a beautiful towel animal on it each day, and enjoying the hot springs pools and the delicious restaurant, we really liked this hotel. It is a series of small buildings around beautiful gardens, each with about... More

This was the first of 4 hotels in my first trip to Costa Rica and what struck me was the beautiful grounds and a nice porch with chairs for you to enjoy seeing the wildlife just outside your room. The food menu could have been lighter and more diverse, need more lighter lunch options such as sandwiches, tacos, salads, etc.... More
