We stayed there for 5 nights in Oct '07. It was clean, had a/c, hair dryer, pool, phone, cable t/v, and an in-room safe. There were fresh flowers in the room upon arrival. The location is great. The front desk staff spoke English. There are two computers w/Internet in the lobby for guests to use. The breakfast was great. We... More

Hotel Arenal Jireh is the best location in the town of Fortuna for viewing the Volcano. However, I would only stay there if I could book a third floor room. Most of the hotels in town are two stories, but this one has an extra floor so you can view the Volcano without all of the clutter. It has a... More

The manager, Rogelio (Roger) and staff were friendly, competent and professional. They took great detail in making sure we got the best prices for the many Arenal attractions. In addition, they steered us to the good ones and away from the mediocre ones. Our entire family spent three days and two nights at this property with fantastic views, great breakfasts,... More

5 of us stayed at Jireh and when we arrived we were promptly helped to check in. However, the room we got was shockingly CRAMPED! We were in room #1, which consisted of 2 double beds and one single bed - which would have been fine for 5 people - but the single and one of the doubles were literally... More

This hotel was right in the middle of the town of La Fortuna. It is on the main road in and out of town, so if you want peace and quiet, it's not the place for you. However if you want to be able to walk 5 minutes to great cafes and eateries, and if you plan on only sleeping... More

We stayed at the Hotel Arenal Jireh in December for two nights. Some little extras on our arrival, fresh flowers in the rooms, nice arrangements on the bed, first class air treatment / conditioning, safes in the room - all nice touches. Breakfast included in the price. Free internet in the lobby. Recently renovated. Overall a very pleasant place to... More

This hotel is located in the center of La Fortuna. It was a decent hotel that provided us with all the basics. Nothing too special about it. The restaurant across the street was one of the best we'd been to in all of Costa Rica...do be sure and go there!

Good value, friendly apartments in the centre of La Fortuna, close to shops and tourist agents. Great views of the volcano (but not the lava). Nice pool (good for a quick dip after walking all day - but not to sit around all day) . Good breakfasts (included). TV in room. Recently extended to feature at least 18 rooms. Recommend... More

I've just returned from a brief but wonderful trip to Costa Rica, and feel compelled to sing the praises of a few of the hotels where I stayed. Hotel Arenal Jireh is one of them - a charming, clean, and hospitable hotel across from the main square in La Fortuna. The hotel has just completed a major renovation, and our... More
