Arenal Volcano Inn has very nice and clean rooms, tv and fridge, since it´s a little "house" then there is no disturbance from next room. And all the staff was very helpful. Swimming pool and hot tub realy nice.

Very nice place. As with all hotels in the area, no flat walks to your room! Walkways are wide and well lit. Garden areas are well maintained and quite beautiful. Staff was outstanding. On-site restaurant was good, but not notable. We really couldn't have asked for more. When leaving the room you must take your key which turns off the... More

We had a lovely 7 day stay in January 2015. The rooms are large and comfortable, and kept immaculately clean by the maids. The gardens and grounds are beautifully maintained, and attract lots of wild birds (hummingbirds, robins, toucans, even vultures). The pool area is comfortable with a nice jacuzzi, but we sat at the table and chairs on the... More

We had a very nice stay at the arenal volcano inn. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We could even leave our luggage after checking out. The hotel is a nice and quiet place near the volcano. It has a beautiful Garden and pool to unwind.

Me and my wife spent three nights here. The room were quiet big, clean with two chairs and a table outside. Nice to sit here watching Arenal. (But most of the time was the top in clouds.) In the area is a swimmingpool and jacuzzi. Rather nice to relax here even though the most of the time families also were... More

My husband and I stayed there during our honeymoon. We were there for our first four days. The hotel was conveniently located to all the activities and the town. The grounds were beautiful and the room was nice. Not the most luxurious but very comfortable. The maid made super cute creature designs every day that set the hotel apart from... More

Lovely grounds. The staff go above and beyond to help, including teaching some spanish words and loaning umbrellas! Very very friendly and helpful. Food for breakfast is lovely. Restaurant is great for dinner too. Location a little bit out of the main area, costs about $8 each way to get into town, but taxis are quick to arrive. Great view... More

I stayed here recently with my husband and enjoyed the room and hospitality of the staff. The rooms are quiet and have nice views of the country. Our room was clean and well equipped. The location is great, tour busses stop right at the lobby door for all the great things you can do in the area. The front desk... More

The rooms are large and very clean, the property is conveniently located for TONS of activities in the Arenal region, and the staff were very helpful in booking some fun tours. The restaurant has good food and a wide selection if, like me, you don't have a car to always go back and forth to Fortuna town (about 6km away).... More
