We had planned on staying at another ecolodge close by, but due to my mix up on dates, could not. Faro had space, and it ended up working out fine. It was rainy much of the time we were here, but I did manage to use the pool still - it's in a beautiful setting surrounded by tropical trees and... More

We stayed two nights here during our visit to the La Fortuna area. The staff were very friendly and helpful to us. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. The pool area was lovely and very inviting. The grounds were very beautiful with lovely views of the volcano on clear days. Only reason why I cannot give this place 5... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and the owner is not around when we arrived. The lady who met us spoke very limited English. Turns out she is only there to check us in, and no one is in the office most of the time during our 2 day stay. This is unexpected considering the price. This could be an... More

This is a beautiful location. The family that runs the hotel is caring, kind, and helpful. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. The parrots right outside our door were beautiful. The family planted all the trees on the property including lime trees and papaya trees. The pool is lovely and the view of the volcano is breathtaking.... More

I hate to say it, but I was actually a little disappointed with this place. Based on the reviews I read, I was expecting more I guess. We stayed in cabin #2 for 2 nights and it was fine. I decent place to crash for the night and fairly roomy with a double & single bed. Overall is was clean,... More

For me, I could not rate this property high enough! If you are looking for the Ritz, you should know, that these are "cabins". That being said, the grounds were impeccable, the cabins were very clean, and the food (breakfast is included) was wonderful. The most amazing thing about this lodging (location is great too), was our hosts. We were... More

Cabinas Faro Arenal is a beautiful place for staying. It is very close to La Fortuna city and also the different hot springs. The view of the Arenal volcano from the pool is really nice. The property is beautifully decorated with various plants and feels very close to nature. Cabins are neat. We were most impressed by the friendliness of... More

We so enjoyed the warm hospitality of Rafael and Rosa-Maria. Their cabins and lovely breakfast area are located in a lovely setting, close to the waterfall (which we loved) and a short drive to all the other local attractions. Rafael is so amazingly generous with his advice and help, always willing to answer questions. We would recommend this very clean,... More

I just returned from my vacation in La Fortuna, Costa Rica and had an excellent time. A lot of that has to do with the wonderful family that runs this business. Rafael and his lovely family took me in and and made me comfortable. Whether it was the delicious breakfast that was prepared every morning or Rafael's recommendation for different... More

This place is absolutely fantastic. It's a family run hotel, Rafael and Rosa-Maria are wonderful hosts who will do their very best for you in order to have a great stay. The lodge is very well located: within walking distance to the waterfall and Cero Chato hike (both highly recommended).
