Restaurant service was good. Person deliver food in the room was nice. Room was good but too far from the main office and restaurant. The staff could have provide a better room near the office. Handicap access was not available. .

We travelled to the attractions near the Arenal Volcano, and the Arenal Volcano Inn provided an excellent place to spend the night. Our room was in a free standing building in an attractive landscaped setting. The room was large, and clean and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was excellent. This is not 5-star, but very comfortable and inviting... More

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The grounds were lovely, and we enjoyed a few strolls. While we didn't swim, the pool looked very nice. The staff was very friendly, and quite helpful with any inquiry we had. The restaurant was quite good as well; highly recommend the cerviche.

Stayed at this place with a tour group. Each couple had an individual cottage. The one we were in was certainly spacious enough and also included a little area with a sink and a refrigerator. There was a porch at the front where you could sit outside. The rooms face directly on the Arenal Volcano and in the morning, there... More

This hotel has separate bungalows for rooms. Ours had a view of the Arenal Volcano, which we saw top of from our window ( they say there is only a 10% chance of seeing it). The staff were friendly and helpful. A breakfast buffet was included with our room. The grounds are breathtaking and well maintained and many birds visit... More

This was, by far, the nicest hotel of our two week stay in Costa Rica. The grounds were gorgeous, the rooms spotless and comfortable, the restaurant food tasty and reasonably priced, and the staff was tremendous. The concierges went above and beyond to make our stay relaxing... they assisted us with arranging local tours at a discount and even entertained... More

Very convenient to all attractions and La Fortuna. Grounds were well-kept and we loved the mooing cows from the field next door! Breakfast could be improved. Staff was friendly but fairly pushy in trying to get us to book tours through them, when all we wanted to do was call a place with questions. Overall, I would recommend this for... More

Nice comfortable rooms, each very private with nice grounds, cooling pool and very nice helpful staff. On site restaurant, short drive to town. Right at base of Volcano - but we only got a 5 second glimpse of the summit due to the constant cloud around the top.
