This is the second time I have stayed here and I was not disappointed for sure. Every room has a view of the Arenal Volcano.... The rooms are pretty nice, though I will say the room I stayed in this time was showing its age a little bit, but still petty nice. The restaurant has great food, even a very... More

The hotel staff was outstanding especially Margarita in reception. If you have mobility issues ask for room 100 the most level ground in this otherwise hilly complex. The views are spectacular the location was convenient to the town of La Fortuna the attached resturant has a adequate breakfast buffet and they will cook eggs to order if you ask. Room... More

My husband and I have been exploring this beautiful country of "buena vida" and this hotel surely reflects that philosophy of hospitality, lovely rooms, great breakfast (included) and care to make sure you get to see what you want when you want it. Morning is best for the tropics, so get up early and hope for a clear day for... More

Staff was super friendly and serviceable. From the gorgeous gardens to the amazing views of Arenal volcano this place is truly enjoyable. Quiet, comfortable rooms. ( although the bathroom and the jacuzzi need to be renovated soon ) the springs in the area and the outdoor activities around the volcano make it unnecessary to stay in the room too long.... More

.Most kind and helpful staff. But I had respiratory condition (rain season) when I stayed there and my bungalow was humid and smelly. Not possible to let the door window opened at night since any animal (or human) can come in. So I had a terrible night. However, the food was very good and I could enjoy an amazing view... More

This is a nice friendly place. Staff was excellent and very helpful. Rooms were clean and spacious. Only let down was the pool (water too cold). We were 4 couples and all of us felt very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. Lunch and dinner choices are rather limited but the quality of food is good. We did not get to... More

This resort is quiet and focused on keeping the carbon footprint to a minimum. However, that does not mean you do not have all the "luxury amenities" that you need. Breakfast was included with our stay and it was absolutely delicious. The view of the volcano from the room was breathtaking. The rooms were clean, and the AC worked very... More

My wife and I had been looking to get away for a week, when she came across an amazing deal in LivingSocial for the Arenal Volcano Inn. We took a look at the offer, expecting to find some downside to such an amazing price, but were unable to do so. We quickly bought and booked our stay and travel. After... More
