We stayed here three nights. The rooms are spacious with newer TVs but still feel like they could use some updating. The bathrooms definitely felt outdated. The rooms were very clean and kept up well. The land that this hotels sits on is beautiful, every morning we woke up and could see the volcano from our rooms. The staff are... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Arenal Volcano Inn--the first night in a standard room--which was super small and had no view. We paid to upgrade for the second night and had a much better room with a view. The pool and hot tub were nice. We also had good meals at the on-site restaurant, Que Rico.

We stay there only one night and we appreciate the service and the full breakfast. The restaurant serve a good cuisine. the pool is just... More

Beautiful spot! Lovely garden's, very clean rooms and pools! Wonderful services especially at the front desk, very attentive staff. Just enough out of town to be a bit isolated but not too much that a quick cab cannot get you back. Cute little trail on the grounds as well. Nice to have security at night as well. Restaurent is good... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in January 2015. The purpose of the stay was visit to the Arenal volcano area and the La Fortuna Waterfall. The hotel is located about 6km outside La Fortuna town and with a view direct to the volcano. We were so lucky so get one of room most back on top of... More

Although excellent in all aspects, and one of the best in the area, the hotel unfortunately can't be rated 5 star in a global context. It comes close though. We admired the landscaping, the pool, and the view of the volcano from our terrace and the pleasant dining space. Food was good for Costa Rican standards, but what was missing... More

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
