First, I have to confess that I manage a hotel in the US, and so my standards may be different than everyone else writing a review. But, let me tell you that this place will deliver the satisfaction you need if you are staying Costa Rica, and want spectacular views of the Volcano! The staff at this place deserves 5... More

If you're looking for breathtaking views and seclusion this place is it!!! You stay in a little villa, total guests are minimal, and the views of the volcano are gorgeous. The staff is super friendly and willing to help in any way possible. The food is decent and it's only a 5 min taxi ride into town. We loved the... More

This is seriously one of the friendliest places I have ever stayed in. The people who work the front desk always have a warm smile and were so kind in helping me print out my boarding pass. The breakfast is great!

My husband and I stayed at Arenal Volcano Inn on our Honeymoon and loved every minute. The resort is quite a way outside of the main town so probably not the best place to stay if you don't have a car or you like to be in the heart of everything. The rooms and facilities on site a fantastic and... More

Excellent accommodation, separate cabins, well furnished with comfy beds and pillows.fridge, tea/coffee maker. Breakfasts excellent, fresh fruit, varied hot food selection, no limit. Abundant wildlife (yellow fly catchers, iguanas,hummingbirds).Dining room spacious and décor was typical of being in the wild (wooden furniture, comfy, a woodie's delight). Pool was not very deep, but large and the hot spa was very nice.... More

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.
