I was a bit disappointed in the room and restaurant atmosphere as it is not in the forest with trails and monkeys like other places I've stayed like Lost Laguna... which I loved. However, it is not as isolated as forest hotels so that is a real plus. When I was at Volcano Inn I was having knee problems and... More

We stayed here last week on a whim because we had run out of time exploring the area and didn't want to drive back to our (terrible) resort in Liberia in the dark. We randomly chose this hotel because it was next to the restaurant where we had just finished dinner. What an awesome surprise! The front desk girl, Fernanda,... More

We would have stayed a week if time allowed. This property is central to La Fortuna, Arenal Lake & Adventure Park. The Que Rico restaurant was excellent,... More

Recently my family and I visited this great hotel again. The rooms are very comfortable and we had a chance to view the volcano. The restaurant (Que Rico Arenal) is definitely one of the best in La Fortuna, specially the pizza. The price is good versus what you get.

My wife and I loved this place, the rooms were big and clean with two queen beds. After over two weeks in Quepos in ashamed double bed this was a real treat. The staff is friendly and informative and will help you with a tour or assist you in doing your own thing. The breakfast buffet (included) was above average... More

The pool and hot tub are excellent. The staff were great, they helped a lot with booking taxis and excursions. The restaurant food was excellent. Overall if you are staying in... More
