This hotel is actually a bunch of cabañas. The setting is beautiful with the Arena volcano as its backdrop. There are over 30 of the cabañas and they are building more. This is a family-run establishment and they take a lot of pride in providing a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The hotel is located on the edge of the town... More

What a beautiful, clean, and large cabana. We stayed in cabana #30. We could see Arenal volcano from the window. Our cabana was large and modern with all the conveniences of home. We even had a front porch. The group ate all meals at the hotel. The food was great. The hotel did a great job taking care of us.... More

We enjoyed our stay at Arenal Montechiari. The hotel was about a ten minute walk from the center of La Fortuna, and we enjoyed staying a bit outside of the business of the city. The breakfast was delicious and the setting is serene. It's like a rainforest secret garden. I highly recommend it!

The rooms are very simple but absolutely stunning. Everything is made from jungle hardwoods and I believe produced onsite. The pool was nice and they have a larger one being built. The whole property is landscaped with gorgeous flowers and fruit trees and you have an amazing view of Mount Arenal when the weather cooperates. The included breakfast was delicious.... More

I would not consider staying anywhere else in La Fortuna. The view of the volcano is perfect, I have always had a comfortable bed, the owners are charming, the gardens are beautiful, and I enjoy the Tico breakfasts. (Some writers grumbled about cold eggs. Just ask, and you will get hot eggs. If you come late to breakfast, the steam... More

The grounds of this hotel are stunning. We absolutely loved our stay here. The bungalows are adorable. The lush unique foliage was incredible. Whoever does the landscaping is very talented. There are great views of the volcano. Downtown La Fortuna is within walking distance so you have access to restaurants, the park and grocery stores. We even saw a SLOTH... More
