I've been reading all the reviews for Arenal hotels and still cant figure out where to stay at and if so, if it's even available. Going for 3 nights in 3 short weeks. We are 4 single females (in our 30s) looking for a clean nice hotel w nice views - ideally would like to stay in 1 room with 2 double/queen beds. What attracted us to the area was Tabacon resort but it's too out of price range. What's next closest thing with out the high cost? Was considering:
1) Arenal Manoa - too blah?
2) Royal Corin - too sterile/modern?
3) Volcanoe Lodge
Any other suggestions? Any info/advice would be appreciated. We're looking to book asap. Thank you!
