Arrived in Arenal area on 10July08 and found out our original hotel was unable to honour our reservation. We located this hotel by driving by and we are glad we did. The Volcano Inn did everything possible to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Although they were only able to accommodate us for the evening of the 10th, we adjusted our... More

Looks like the erruptions are back on this side again, even if only for a short time. We were there on July 9th when we saw a great blast from the volcano at 5AM.

Stayed here on our first visit to CR a while back. We loved it! I think the most outstanding aspect of this experience was the excellent service throughout the four days my partner and I spent at the property. The place is operated and staffed by down-to-earth Costa Ricans that know how to make you feel at home in a... More

We spent 3 nights here in late April. The hotel area was very well maintained with beautiful gardens and a nice people. The separate buildings for each room kept things quiet and private. The view of the volcano was awesome, but unfortunately the lava flow was on the opposite side. The staff was helpful and courteous, and the restaurant at... More

The Volcano Inn is a very solid choice in Arenal and I would definitely recommend it. They a number of self-standing cabins with views of the volcano. The rooms were new and clean. The location is ideal to me as its located a few miles out of La Fortuna. Although its not on the side of the volcano where you... More

I agree with the previous reviews about the great value of this place. You get a wonderful view from your own private casita. Breakfast is included and I have to say it was quite good. It was buffet style, abd you could ask them to prepare eggs for you on the spot. We had a bit of a problem with... More

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights. I loved having my own little cabin-like place. The room was big & so was the bathroom. It even had a little kitchen-like area with a sink & counter with a coffee machine & mini bar fridge. It had a front porch with chairs so you could sit & look at... More

We enjoyed our time here. It's a really convenient location, in between the town of Fortuna and the hot springs/volcano park entrance. The pool was comfortable, the restaurant and breakfast were yummy, and the rooms were spacious. The hot tub didn't seem to be working, but it was so warm out, we didn't really care. The sheets were kind of... More

The room was even larger and prettier than I expect and the view...indescribable. You open your window shades, and THERE's the volcano. Right in front of you. Amazing! The room was very clean, well-designed, and spacious. This was probably the most aestheically pleasing hotel we stayed in in Costa Rica. It's a quick $5 cab to the hot springs and... More
