I went to Costa Rica for dental work. After 6 days at a surgery retreat, I needed to getaway to see some wildlife. I booked an overnight trip through Expediciones Tropicales. They arranged for a bus to pick me up at my hotel, then we picked up 7 other people at various places. After a brief stop at Sarchi, we... More

I traveled up to Arenal with a small tour group -- Expediciones Tropicales. We had lunch at the Arenal Volcano Inn -- a very good buffet -- and then spent three hours at the hot springs. Most of the group went back to San Jose but I and a few other lucky ones had chosen to stay overnight at the... More

I travelled to Arenal with 3 kids aged 9, 11 and 14 - this hotel was perfect . Nice pool, great breakfast, good sized room, friendly staff. Good view of the volcano , if it is not cloudy. Monkeys in trees , beautiful garden, tasty restaurant that is good value.

I stayed the night at the Inn as part of a package tour. I had a room to myself with all the amenities. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was included as part of my package with Expediciones Tropicales. The tour included a visit to the Tabacon spa and a night visit to the Arenal Volcano. Unfortunately,... More

We were right on with this little gem!!! Think of it as little bungle style- (casitas). I traveled with my husband and my 10 turning 11 year old son. The staff was simply amazing, they were the sweetest and friendly bunch. Margarita (one of the receptionist) even ordered my son's birthday cake for me. He was so surprised to actually... More

We stayed here 3 nights and I would say it's a nice place to stay. Breakfast is included, rooms are clean, service is good. There was nothing to make me say "wow, this is an amazing place," but then again there was nothing wrong with this place. It was big, clean, beautiful view. I would say that you can't go... More

I love La Fortuna I’ve been to La Fortuna many times because I simply love this place. I like the hot springs and the bunch of tours available, mostly because of the shorter driving times to the different attractions, I’ve been in other parts of Costa Rica and it can take a lot of time to go from one place...

We got this hotel with our 2 days/1 night package to Arenal from Costa Rica Nature Escape - May 2009. We had a great time in Arenal and were glad we were staying at this hotel that night as it had been a full day of traveling & activities. This is not a resort type hotel but a bungalo style,... More

We have just been at Arenal Volcano Inn with my family. We are traveling with my three kids of 6, 10 and 13 year-old. The facilities of the hotel are great, everything was clean and tidy. Although in the Lonely planet the rooms are described as simple, I would say this is unfair. The rooms are new and with a... More

I booked the reservation on www.arenalvolcanoinn.com. They charge your credit card in advance. Was a little hesitant, but they were very professional and also helped me book transportation from SJO to the hotel. Got to the hotel and they had the room ready for us. They brought us extra towels, pillows and glasses. Everything was really clean. We stayed in... More
