I came here with a group of 12 students and we stayed for two nights at this hotel. We all loved our experience here. The owner and his family are so kind and are willing to help with anything. Not only did they run the hotel but they also prepared some of the best and most authentic meals for us... More

This place is a wet hole. The room wasn't ready when we came. The owner called the service to clean it up. The room smelled like a wet moldy closet. The beds were dirty and nasty. We didn't like anything about that place. There are many other and nice places you can stay in La Fortuna area. Even our adventure... More

We booked another hotel. When we arrived they said they were overbooked and placed us in here at HFA. One day we had no water all. We regular had to ask for more towels as the cleaning staff was unaware that 4 people were in the room. The bathroom shower was dirty and had mildew/mold. The picture on the wall... More

My family came to visit us in Costa Rica for Christmas and we wanted to take them to see the Arenal Volcano and do the zip line because we did it here before and it was great. We know that Christmas is very busy and did our best to book something ahead of time with no luck. We had another... More

Service was very friendly, location is excellent if the weather clears enough to see the volcano. Room was without character and a little icky. Bathroom was sort of clean. We were ready to leave early which is unlike us, we usually have fun wherever.

We stayed at the Hotel for 2 nights and found the Hotel clean, the location great and the owner terrific. The hotel is very unique in that it has a front porch viewing the Volcano and a wonderful back deck overlooking the gardens which are full of trees and birds. We saw Toucans, parrots, vultures and too many different birds... More

Location: Close to the volcano, right by the road but not noisy. You can view the volcano from the porch and even from the beds (not that we saw it; Arenal was shrouded by clouds the two days we were there.) Nice view of jungle in the back porch. Room: Hotel is still pretty new, room is clean, staff is... More

Stayed 2 nights at Hotel Fuego Arenal. Nice, not noisy, clean place. Located about 5 minutes from La Fortuna on the way to Arenal. The owners are very nice, helpful. Using the opportunity to communicate with English speaking guests as practice to improve their English. One of the women was even writing down words that we used that she was... More
