The staff of the Inn bent over backwards to make our visit one of my favorite experiences. I recomend this Inn because it is central to most of the attractions. Get up early to see the unforgetable views.

My wife and I stayed at the Arenal for a few nights in December of 2009. We found the location to be amazing, with a view of the Volcano and situated on the edge of the forest it was very peaceful and beautiful. The staff was helpful giving us advice and assistance when needed. They had a nice little pool... More

I think I read every review of hotels around Arenal on this site before our trip. Should we stay at one with a view of the lava at night or opt for the more populated (sort of) area on the other side. Without question, this was the place to stay! The casitas were lovely, comfortable, spacious and well equipped with... More

Arenal was the first destination my friends and I traveled to in Costa Rica, and we were pleasantly greeted after an exhausting trip to get there. The rain was pouring hard when we came, and the staff helped us out of our shuttle with giant umbrellas. The restaurant is wonderful, and the breakfast was great! The grounds are beautiful, but...

My husband and I, along with two other couples, enjoyed our stay in La Fortuna at the Arenal Volcano Inn. We were greeted and escorted to our bungalows by Iliana, the delightful front desk clerk. The grounds were beautiful and had an amazing view of the volcano. Our rooms were comfortable, clean and more than adequate for a mid-range hotel.... More

This is a beautiful little place. The grounds are beautiful and the view is amazing. You can see the volcano when the clouds clear. The staff is very friendly and very helpful planning an agenda for the area. The restaurant is also quite good for both breakfast and dinner (didn't try lunch). The rooms are also pretty spacious and very... More

We stayed 3 nights- a family of five- boys ages 9-13. Individual cabins set in a lush garden setting. Every morning I would be awakened early by a chorus of birds and then I would sit outside on the porch and just watch the volcano- watch the clouds flit and flirt and finally clear. Staff was great. Free breakfast buffet... More

Not only is this place beautiful, the staff went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. They actually forwarded the book I left to my next destination. They also arrange for ponchos for us when it rained. The rooms were very clean and the towel animals were a nice touch. We would definately stay here again. Thanks!

Even though there are dozens of hotels in the Arenal Volcano area, Arenal Volcano Inn was a unique experience to me. It’s a small and cozy hotel with great location – great views to the volcano and close to the most interesting and beautiful spots in the area. One of the things I liked most about this hotel, apart from... More
