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

We were on a tour and really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The grounds were very pretty and the pool and hot tub was well kept. The grounds are also well kept and the rooms are clean and comfy. We could not see the volcano but only because the cloudy weather. The restaurant was very good and we had breakfast,... More

My husband, 10yo son and I spent two nights here and we wished we had booked more nights. It is beautiful and the people that work here are friendly and helpful and did not laugh once at my very rusty Spanish. This region of the country is truly special and there is a lot to see and experience. We are... More

I was a bit disappointed in the room and restaurant atmosphere as it is not in the forest with trails and monkeys like other places I've stayed like Lost Laguna... which I loved. However, it is not as isolated as forest hotels so that is a real plus. When I was at Volcano Inn I was having knee problems and... More

We stayed here last week on a whim because we had run out of time exploring the area and didn't want to drive back to our (terrible) resort in Liberia in the dark. We randomly chose this hotel because it was next to the restaurant where we had just finished dinner. What an awesome surprise! The front desk girl, Fernanda,... More

Can't say enough about this property.We were a group of 9 and had the 4 rooms by the pool. The rooms are super clean & spacious, the grounds, pool area, gardens, just beautiful. We would have stayed a week if time allowed. This property is central to La Fortuna, Arenal Lake & Adventure Park. The Que Rico restaurant was excellent,... More
