We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in summer 2010. The room was nice, with cute towel animals every day. The room itself was decent, nothing spectacular, but suitable enough, but a bit dark. Loved the back private ground patio where you can see the volcano (and one day we actually were able to see some tiny plumes coming... More

I went to Arenal without a reservation. My first choice had no rooms available. So, I started driving thru town and towards the volcano and recognized the Volcano Lodge from tripadvisor. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was very nice. The breakfast buffet was included in the room price and it was excellent. The price of the... More

Way nicer than I expected. Only stayed here 2 nights but wish I had stay here all week. If the volcano was actually active this place would have even been better. Everything about the hotel was perfect.

We spent 5 nights at the Volcano Lodge and had a wonderful experience. The rooms were spacious, clean and had a great patio with views of the Volcano. The staff was friendly and helpful! Beautiful grounds and a great pool. We would recommend the Volcano Lodge to everyone!

Hotel is about 4 miles north of LaFortuna, a place small town that offers a few conveniences but is otherwise without much interest. Hotel: Pleasant staff Accommodations are quite nice and quiet Restaurant is worth trying although relatively pricey for CR. Gardens are beautifully maintained and offer a great view of the volcano Would go back without hesitation.

This summer my family and I visited the Volcano Lodge and had an absolutely amazing time. The grounds were beautiful, the people were fun, and the view was top notch! Upon my return to the states, I found that my watch was missing. It was a very pricy watch so I retraced my steps over the past 6 weeks of... More

Beautiful hotel and gardens with excellent staff. Great location, close to attractions. Baldi hotsprings a must. Breakfast is included and hearty. No need to book expensive tours, just do your research and you can do everything yourself. RENT A GPS IF DRIVING IN COSTA RICA!!!!

This is an update to the one previously written. Well, I have to say that I published in haste! Once we moved back into free wireless access locations (not many of these in Costa Rica!), I got a message saying that the money had been refunded. We had a very good time at the hotel as previously stated, the staff... More

Our first 2 nights were in Arenal and we stayed at the Volcano lodge and gardens. The hotel rooms were clean, spacious, plenty of ac and hot water, and the view of Arenal was awesome. WiFi at the restaurant worked fine. Breakfast came with the room and was great! While there we did the Repel and Rafting adventure challenge tour.... More
