We were there on our honeymoon. The landscape is beautiful and the hotel was very nice. The bar at the swimming pool had a large choice of cocktails and he also can make any of them without alcohol. From here you can visit the waterfall. Also possible to go to the thermal springs of the volcanos, really nice to be... More

Place was nice and clean. A/C worked great and the free breakfast was so delicious!! Although for dinner it was just ok. the problem I had was that the wifi would cut off in the room a lot, also the shower had a leak the would drip endlessly into the night, and also that we had to wear bright lime...

Beautiful grounds, privacy, singing birds in the mornings and great view of the volcano, all staff were wonderful. Nice restaurant with varied menu, very clean. Even though we were there during the early rainy season the temperatures were mild with light rain and sunshine. Grocery stores/restaurants/shopping were nearby

Very, very nice bungalows. Big and very nice bathrooms. Good food, nice restaurant. Very helpful staff. I had a view from window to the Arenal volcano, but all the time top of the volcano was in clouds. Despite this very nice place, good pool, normal and hot. Internet very fast.

This hotel is right between the quaint town of La Fortuna and the Arenal volcano. The view of the volcano (even though the top was obscured by clouds for most of our trip) from the pool area was absolutely spectacular. We also enjoyed the large, comfortable bed, and the amenities of the rooms (it was the only hotel of 3... More

La Pradera has the perfect distance from the center of town, far enough but still close to restaurants and a supermercado. Rooms are big, with a small patio, but wifi only works at the reception area and the restaurant. Two average-sized swimming pools, both heated, nice to soak in after horseback riding or hiking to soothe aching muscles :) The... More

The hotel is a good choice for visiting the area of La Fortuna and the the Arenal Volcano. The restaurant offers nice food at an honest price. Also nice are the pool and its bar. Rooms are spacious and well kept.

Simple, clean with a fantastic location looking directly at Arenal volcano. Great location from main highway. Hotel personnel very friendly and food in small restaurant great. It's not the Ritz, but very nice for the price! Wifi slow in the back bungalows but stronger up front by pool. I would definitely return to this hotel!

Great place to base out of to explore LA Fortuna, Arenal Volcano and the surrounding area. Rooms are basic, but clean and well maintained. Breakfast is great and restaurant / bar staff are very friendly and helpful. This is not a full scale resort but have a nice pool / hot tub / bar area and convenient access to restaurants... More

Read that staff was unhelpful but reception was there with recs and reservations. Our cabin was lovely and rooms a bit less so. Room number 21 had no phone and after 3 days still didn't get one... Various stories why. Included breakfast was nice buffet with plenty of fruits but no cereal or yogurt. Great view of volcano if you... More
