This hotel was great for one night The grounds were beautiful but the other than that nothing was remarkable either way. The pizza was good but pricey. Breakfast was plentiful but average. (Note: we were really spoiled by some awesome hotels earlier in our trip)

We loved our stay at Arenal Volcano Inn! Beautiful landscaping, pool area and villas. We stayed in #1, which had a great view of the volcano and a short walk to the pool and main reception area. Parking area was close to our villa. The staff was very accommodating, fun to talk to at the bar and restaurant and very... More

I really liked the layout of this property. Rooms were easy to find, pool and restaurant very close. We stayed in room 202 and seemed to be a good, centrally located room. The room has only a stand up shower and the toilet was in a separate space from the shower. Our room had to two double bed with lightweight... More

The hotel and especially the staff were lovely. We really enjoyed our stay and the view of the volcano was incredible. The rooms were clean and well decorated and the grounds alive with wildlife. Food was good too! Would highly recommend.

We were 3 nights in the hotel in July 2015. We got a special offer for 75$ due to green season (3 people). We hat really nice and clean rooms. You can expect all what you would expecting from 4Star hotel, Just 7min drive into the town!

Great restaurant and nice pool and jacuzzi. There is a fridge and coffee maker in the room. Excellent service. The only drawback to the location was the cost of getting around without a car. The hotel is too far to walk to town on the busy street and taxi to town or other locations cost at least $10 one way.... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 night while traveling through Costa Rica. We have been in La Fortuna before so we've been familiar with this small town and knew where to book hotel. This Hotel is located in very convenient location, very quiet and green place, 3 minutes driving from Eco Thermales (our favorite) and 7 minutes driving from... More

We stayed 3 nights and 4 days at Arenal Volcano Inn. The stay included 3 kids ages 12, 11, and 8. They enjoyed the pool and loved the food at the restaurant (especially the pizza). The facility is very nice and clean. The room was also clean and perfect for our family of 5. The customer service was the best... More
