“Beautiful Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Excellent views of the volcano, professional, helpful, friendly staff. We stayed for 8 nights and wouldn't stay anywhere but here when visiting again. Nancy, Juan and Magdalena all made us feel right at home. We went to the free hot springs (just down the road) and jumped from a rope swing not far from La Fortuna. We did White Water Rafting (great fun), Sky Trek, and visited the Blue River. We ate at Mesa de Momma twice (food was excellent, inexpensive and super close to the Majestic) and Pizza John's which was a very fun experience and his unique homemade ice cream was a perfect end to the evening..

Room Tip: My husband and I stayed in the upstairs master bedroom with perfect views of the volcano, my mom and...

We spent three nights at the Majectic Lodge and it was among our best during a month in Costa Rica. The place is clean, confortable and the service is excellent. We had a room on top of a hill, with a view on Arenal. The view is just breathtaking from up there.

Juan, the guy responsible for service was great, very attentive and caring. He answered our questions and helped us kindly whenever necessary. Breakfasts were excellent. The hotel has a little pool and is near a lot of attractions near the Arenal park. If you need a place to eat in the evening have a look at the excellent John's Pizza, just 5 minutes from the Majestic (see reviews of the restaurant on Trip Advisor).

My daughter and I recently stayed for 1 week at this wonderful villa. Everything is so pretty and done with such taste and thought. Very elegant and comfortable. Nancy was there to greet us and help us everyday with our activities. We went zipling, a MUST! Also a very exciting and fun trek ride through the rivers and mountains with Lelander, a very funny and entertaining cowboy, he knows his horses and his country! The villa was the perfect place we could have chosen, right on the lake with the most amazing views to the volcano, from the dining room, the gardens, the pool, and also from just lying in our beds! Waking up to that every morning, made our day already! Ingrid served us breakfast, hearty & deliscious. We were able to walk to the restaurant at night. Most days we were busy with all the different things we wanted to do, but the last day we just hung out and lazed around the pool and jacuzzi. I truly loved this place, everyone was very friendly and helpful, we felt at home and well taken care of. Had some of best hamburgers ever at the next door Bar & Grill Howlers! I highly recommend it!
