Stayed at the Arenal Volcano Inn in La Fortuna for a couple of nights and I would have to say that this hotel was a highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. The property was well manicured and maintained beautifully. We stayed in the first row of rooms closest to the pool where we had a spectacular view of Arenal... More

Nice place in a good location to see the volcano. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, and reasonably priced. Beautifully kept grounds and the buildings are nicely spread along the walking trail. Pool was small, but good enough if you want to take a dip. Close to attractions in Arenal Volcano area. Restaurant was nice, food was good for breakfast and... More

From our arrival to departure, staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, spacious and all situated for spectacular views of the volcano. We used the restaurant for several meals, all of which were tasty. Will definitely use this hotel again if we return.

What a fantastic inn. The price was what brought us in, the chalets, pool and staff got us to stay. Friendly helpful staff, beautiful rooms have high ceilings, and sit right under the volcano...the resturant on site makes great oven baked pizza!!! Close to hot springs and, water rafting. Don't miss this place! CD Mt. Prospect IL

What a great place. Really cool rooms. All of them face the volcano and it was so cool to see the clouds part to reveal it. Super clean. Beautifully kept grounds and a nice little walking trail around the property. The restaurant was very good and the service was great. Ask for their Guaro sour. It's the best!!

My better half and I stayed here for 3 nights while in Arenal. The rooms were excellent and very clean. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was yummy every morning. We loved that we could see the the volcano from our room. The best part was the staff. Everyone was friendly, professional, and always willing to help the customers.

I came to Arenal for three days so as to whitewater both the Balsa and Sarapiquí rivers. I used Anywhere Costa Rica's travel service to set my trip, and they placed me at Arenal Volcano Inn for the middle portion of my trek through Costa Rica. On the day the van was transporting me (from Liberia) to the Arenal Volcano... More

The rooms are amazing! The restaurant attached to the lobby (Que Rico) is absolutely great! We spent so much time eating there! The hotel is conveniently close to many excursions and La Fortuna. One of the best parts was waking up and see the Arenal volcano right there out of our window.

Great rooms (we had the deluxe poolside room). Spacious, clean! Very friendly staff. Very helpful. Great restaurant too. The wood fire pizzas were really good.The hotel is well located between La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano Park.
