Our stay at the Arenal Volcano Inn was fantastic! Beautiful, quiet and clean. The service there was great. Fernanda at the reception desk let us check in 4 Hrs early after a long drive and Raphael made sure we always had a cocktail or a great recommendation for dinner. I highly recommend this wonderful place and will be my first... More

We have been sent to this hotel by our travel agency and were a bit reserved about it because it was a second option for us, instead of Arenal Springs hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the great service at the reception and at the restaurant. We were given recommendations about where to go for thermal springs as well. The... More

We stayed in the hotel for one night in March 2014. The hotel consists of 25 units of individual cabins with small porch equipped with a table and two chairs and cabins that contain two separate rooms. They are located in a beautifully maintained garden with many exotic plants, short walking trail and a swimming pool. The view of Arenal... More

We stayed at Arenal Volcano Inn from 3/18/14 thru 3/21/14. For three families in our group, we had three rooms for three nights. Each room was clean and big enough for each family of four. There was a small refrigerator and safe in each room. We had a clear view of volcano from each room. The hotel's restaurant served great... More

My husband and I recently stayed here on our vacation. Although the hotel might not be as fancy as some of the others in the area, we were very impressed with the service. There was internet in our room. The breakfast was wonderful. One day we had to leave for a tour at 5 am. The staff packed us breakfast... More

This hotel was comfortable and clean. The grounds were filled with gorgeous flowers and the view of Arenal Volcano was beautiful. Each room is an invidual building so it was nice not to have immediate neighbors. They were air conditioned and comfortable. The continential breakfast was good and the dinner was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There... More

The grounds of the hotel are absolutely gorgeous with a spectacular view of the volcano. The rooms are large, air conditioned and very comfortable. The food and service were exceptional. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel if you go to Arenal. I loved staying here.

This is an oasis of beauty and scenery. The rooms are spacious and they don't exaggerate when they say every room has a view, someone did some planning with this layout! Beautiful pool area, nice restaurant, and very helpful staff! My favorite point was the card key that shuts the electricity off in the rooms when you leave, something I... More

This a beautiful facility and one that I will love to return to if I ever travel again to the Arenal Volcano area. My friend Krista chose this hotel last minute as we were passing by and it turned out to be a superb choice! The hot tub and multiple swimming pools are delightful. The flora (hibiscus!) and fauna (tree... More
