This hotel is well located with a perfect view of the Arenal Volcano right from your cabana. The cabanas are big, clean and quiet. They are surrounded by vegetation and beautiful flowers for privacy. The food was good and the service excellent. We used the hot tub end the pool one night which was nice. You don't need an alarm... More

We had a cabin. The cabin itself was pretty basic but clean. Room has mini fridge to keep your cervezas cold. The view was incredible. All of the cabins have porches with chairs perfect for reading or enjoying the volcano. The pool, hot tub and bar set up was great. Two different hot tubs, one hotter than the other. Bar... More

Had a bit of difficulty booking online without a fax machine and they would not take my credit card over the phone, but the room was available when we arrived none the less. The $65 included tax and a wonderful breakfast. The room was classy, spacious and clean and the best we had while in Costa Rica for the best... More

This is a great hotel, wonderful rooms, great pool with two hot tubs, it is 2.5 km from downtown La Fortuna but well worth it. One dislike was the bar tender at the pool area, he was more interested in playing pool and fooz ball than tending to his clients!

My husband and I celebrated his birthday at La Pradera. We got take out from "my coffee" and a bottle of wine and enjoyed sitting on our private porch. Breakfast is included in the dining and there is a nice buffet. A pleasure to stay in a comfortable hotel with spacious bedroom and bath.

We found this place to be extremely comfortable and affordable. From the patio of our room, we could sit and look right out onto Arenal, while from one of the hottubs, you could look onto the prairie. The room itself was large and adequate - no bells and whistles, but certainly met all our needs. The fact that breakfast was... More

Beautiful grounds, horrible bungalows. We stayed in Rm 48. Ants in the bed, bugs and spiders in our room, we had to actually ask for bug spray. They left us with a can to keep in our room. Food was just okay in the restaurant.

This place was gorgeous. You open your hotel room door and there is the volcano. Beautiful setting, clean rooms, buffet breakfast, great pool and even better hot tub. Our server in the restaurant treated us like gold and we made quite a few friends here:) Pure Vida.

We stayed in the cabins of hotel La Pradera which was situated in front of the Vulcano which gave a perfect view without any building in front of it. The cabin was very spacious and fully equiped with coffeemaker, A/C, ceiling propeller, refrigerator, huge bathroom with shower, sinks and toilet. The bed was luxurious and the porch was equipped with... More
