Agree with Road Advisor, I also like Campo Verde, a simple family style cabina, views of Volcano. No need to go to town, the steakhouse next to Campo Verde across street is excellent grass fed, the beef in this region is some of best in the world IMO, from a Chicago steak guy...

Agreed with the above. Arenal Springs is a better option IMO. Cabs are easy and Baldi can become obnoxious in the evening. I can see why some may enjoy the affordable hot springs, but the music is too loud for a hotel stay.
