We stayed here for 4 days and really enjoyed it! The location is quiet and peaceful but it is only a short walk ( 7 - 8 mins) into La Fortuna. The cabins are spacious, well furnished, detached with a private verandah. The gardens are mature, tropical and well tended, there is a pool area. The Arenal Volcano looks like... More

We loved Hotel Arenal Montechiari. My husband and I were only in La Fortuna for 2 nights. It was the perfect place to stay. The cabins were adorable. We had the back corner unit and had the most AMAZING view of the volcano. It was super clean, not fancy, but had plenty of space and everything you would need in... More

We stayed there for 1 night. It's located 10 minutes walk from the center of La Fortuna. The cabins look really nice from the outside, serounded by a beautiful garden. We were in room #15 which is the located at the end of a row, so the view to the volcano was the best. The room itself was nice, not... More

We spent 3 nights there and we liked it. When it's not cloudy, you have a beautiful view of the volcano. It's close to the town, you don't need to use your car. Vegetation is amazing and you have your own bungalow. The only negative point is the soundproofing but it's not just in this hotel, we noticed it in... More

we had a lovely view of the volcano. the bungalows are built of wood and very noisy. if the neighbor is talking, then you can hear it in the room. there is only one sunbed St the pool. the reception is very friendly. Conclusion: for a short overnight stay, the hotel is ok, but nothing more.

The hotel grounds are well care, the rooms are average (it have a rally tiny trash can, and save box), but the service of the staff is more that deficient. They seem to be very upset about their jobs, hence they do not provide a good service, at the begging we have problems with the reservation, we already had payed... More

Stayed here one night enroute and it was fine. It is nothing fancy, the beds were ok and the breakfast was ok too. The bathrooms barely had space to turn around it and the safe's are very small. A regular ipad would not be able to fit. Wear bug repellant as there are many mosquitoe's. The grounds are beautiful and... More

They take care for the garden around and the people are friendly. Also they have alot of birds and lizards around. But the rooms are not very comfortable, its very dark inside and they have no mosquito nets. I would not stay there for more than 2 nights.
