My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon. We stayed at the Arenal Volcano Inn for the week -- taking trips and tours each day. I spent a good deal of time researching the best location and I have to say that the reviews don't do this place justice. The grounds are gorgeous, the staff friendly, the rooms big,... More

My family stayed at the Arenal Volcano Inn for 3 nights in late April. It was great. The staff was friendly and the view was breath taking. We almost had a horrible start to our 10 day trip when I was on the Sky tram getting ready to do the AWESOME zip lines when my camera said Memory Card full.... More

Wonderful place to stay with individual cottage-like rooms. Every room has view of Arenal Volcano, You can see the volcano right out your large front window while your sitting in bed. Beautiful and well-maintained gardens/landscape: banana/plantain trees, papaya trees, well-lit pathways. Security on grounds 24-hrs. Manager of the Inn is extremely hospitable, always smiling and willing to help you out.... More

We walked in with no reservations. We had the BEST view of the Volcano from our beds. The gigantic picture windows allowed us to watch the beautiful lava flow at night right from our beds. We had a room with 2 queen beds at the top of the hill. This hotel was brand new, clean with great amenities. The pool... More

We were very pleased with our stay at the Arenal Volcano Inn, even though we never got to see the top of the Volcano! That is what you get for only staying one night! The location is outside of town, but right next to either hot springs & it makes the drive to the volcano shorter. As said in other... More

Good value for the money. All hotel rooms face the volcano, with big picture-windows, but clouds covered the view both days we were there. The front desk people did say they'd call in the middle of the night if we wanted if it was erupting, which I thought was a nice touch. The room had 2 double beds, the bathroom... More

We spent 3 nights at the Volcano Inn and everything was just perfect... We had the private room #8 which had an amazing view of the volcano... We were very lucky: no clouds and non stop eruptions while we were there... having a drink at night on your private terrasse watching the lava going down was an experience that words... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel March 18 and 19, 2007. The entire process was painless, the Cabina we stayed in was very clean, the A/C worked great and the staff was excellent (as a bonus the room had a fridge which was NOT typical for the other hotels we stayed at in Costa Rica). The food in... More

So we actually did not get to stay in this hotel. We originally booked two nights in this property based of the many excellent reviews. There was a change of our trip plan that we had to cancel the first night. They were quick in refunding the first night (they pre-charged both nights). When we arrived, however, the receptionists asked... More
