Very reasonable rates and close to La Fortuna! We walked and also took taxis to and from. Office staff was knowledgable and spoke English! Breakfasts were very good and they offered an array of foods. We stayed in a cabin/cottage and it was roomy and large. My favorite was the front porch with rocking chairs and a table that faced...

This is a very quiet hotel/area. We did travel during their down season/rainy summer. All the pictures of this hotel are spot on. Beautiful and peaceful. Very humid and basic room. But you should enjoy the outside as much as possible. Wish the hotel made more effort to make it more lively for young adults. Keep the pool/bar area open... More

Employees from the front desk on made us feel like they would rather not be bothered. Each guest received one very small thin bath towel and discouraged from asking for an additional towel to use at the pool area. Pillows seemed like they had been washed too many times and lumpy. The room was clean and that is about it.... More

Stayed 3 nights, room was clean and comfortable, but dated. We stayed in one of the rooms closest to the pool. The large flower garden in front of us provided not only a beautiful view, but was home to half a dozen hummingbirds. The pool area had 2 hot tubs in addition to a medium sized pool. It was not...

The Mountain Cabin was nice but over-priced. Rooms were very clean but the beds were not very comfortable. The view was pretty and the breakfast was good and offered plenty to eat. The grounds are the highlight, with multiple pools, a pool table, and nice gardens.

La Pradera was a wonderful hotel! We stayed in one of the private bungalows and while it was not overly fancy, it was clean and charming. We loved the view of Arenal volcano that was right in front of our porch! The staff was so friendly and the food in the restaurant was excellent! We will definantley stay there again... More
