This was my 4th stay at Volcano Lodge, and I'll be back! The property is filled with beautiful, well-cared for gardens and lovely buildings. The rooms are great- well appointed, clean, and each has a nice porch. The restaurants and pools are wonderful for our kids. We love Volcano Lodge!

The rooms face the volcano which can be seen upon waking up. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. Rooms were nice, although musty due to all the rain. Hard for clothes and swim suits to dry out. Maid service is outstanding! Restaurant buffet breakfast is the best we had during our week in Costa Rica. Dinner was also good.

From the moment we arrived, we were awed by the incredible view of the volcano from virtually everywhere on the hotel grounds (including, most importantly, our room!) The grounds were lovely, the buffet breakfast was filling and tasty (though I wish they'd done a better job keeping bees away from the fruit trays). Excellent service. The rooms were tastefully decorated,... More

Couldn't imagine what we were in for for the price we paid. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised. They couldn't do enough for you. The staff was excellent, food delicious, rooms clean and cozy, beds comfortable, grounds amazing and well kept, pools sparkling clean and housekeeping friendly and accommodating. Can't say enough good and would reccomend to anyone.

Simple, nice rooms with outstanding gardens and views of the Arenal Volcano. The restaurants were excellent. I saw more wildlife in their gardens than I did in the rainforest tour. Service was excellent as well. They need better pillows, though!

Chose this hotel at random for a one night stay and we were pleasantly surprised. The property was beautiful and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable with a lot of space. It's out of the hussle and bussle of town but you have a great view of the volcano and are within minutes... More

We loved this place. Great value for a very nice room, large bathroom, nice outdoor sitting area....everything we could have wanted. Good breakfast, fantastic (huge) jacuzzi with an amazing view of the volcano. Great staff too. They set up all of our tours and were super nice!

My brother and I stayed here for two nights on our visit to La Fortuna, Costa Rica! To say we loved it is an understatement. We were worried it would be too romantic since it was just him and I but it had the perfect amount of everything for anyone visiting. We spent a lot of time on our back... More
