We stayed at the Arenal Vvolcano Inn for 2 nights and it was outstanding. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms were spotless and cleaned each day, and we had a very comfortable time. (BTW, it is true, the volcano is not currently active. Don't be too put off, as the area is beautiful anyway) The staff was outstanding. We thought... More

The hotel is on the road out of La Fortuna as you go to the Arenal Volcano. It is about a 10 minute ride by cab and cost about $8 to go into town. Our room had 2 queen beds, and was large and clean. The room also had a nice patio. WiFi is free but available only in the... More

This hotel is an excellent place to stay and has great views of Arenal Volcano. Every room has volcano views and their exteriors are well kept, you would like walking around in the area with humming birds buzzing by. Their breakfast buffet was one of the best in our Costa Rica trip. Restaurant prices are reasonable. The best part of... More

We visited Costa Rica for the first time on our honeymoon in June. We booked everything on our own through online research so we were praying the trip turned out well and it surprised all of our hopes and wishes! The Arenal Volcano Inn was perfect for our honeymoon! The staff was extremely helpful and very welcoming to us. The... More

I have been staying in this hotel several times and each time I'm impressed by the hospitality and attention each employee pays to the clients. Not only at the reception but also in the restaurant which is on the site. Very convenience if you don't want to go out for dinner and the food is delicious. They do homemade pizza... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. When I was booking the room, I had a hard time figuring out the difference between the standard room and the deluxe. I ended up booking the deluxe since it was only $10 more and I'm glad we did. The standard rooms are lower on the slope... More

We stayed in Room 108, very nice, clean and spacious. The hotel grounds are gorgeous! The hotel staff were all friendly and the restaurant has good food. You will need to take a short cab ride into La Fortuna, as it is several miles away.

My son loved this hotel. He is 5. We've traveled a lot and he still asks to go back to the Volcano Inn. The pool area was lovely and just enough for a family with kids. The view of the Volcano was spectacular, from virtually every angle. And there were banana trees scattered around the property that we got to... More

We stayed here Sept 2010 but didn’t get round to writing review as we got engaged on our trip to Costa Rica so have spent the last year planning our wedding.
