My husband, daughter and I stayed at Arenal Lodge Jan. 22 & 23 2013. Elonzo at the front dest immediately made us feel at home. He was so kind and very helpful with all of our questions. We stayed in a Jr. Suite right in the maid lodge. Our room was beautiful!! It was very clean along with large bathroom, nice shower and the beds were comfortable. The best part was the spacious deck that over looked the infiniti pool with direct views of the volcano. We had many hours of beautiful skies with the volcano blending right in the scenery but of course, its a jungle, there will be fog at times which actually made it beautiful just the same. We ate the free breakfast both mornings which had more than enough variety and it was delicious. We also ate lunch and dinner in the lodge and it was very comfortable and we loved looking out the huge picture windows while we ate. The grounds are BEAUTIFUL!!!! The pool area with two hot tubs is a great bonus. During our 10 day tour of C.R. , my husband and I both agree that we relaxed the most while we were at Arenal Lodge for those two nights. Everything about it was perfect, in the Jr. Suite we stayed in. The female receptionist was an angel.... I forget her name but she was so sweet as well as the waiters and bar tenders. Everyone was a joy to meet during our stay. And yes, we agree with the above mentioned about Miguel, he is a wealth of information either on the hike or the horse ride. What a pleasure meeting him. One last thing, the drive up to the lodge is fantastic. It adds to the uniqueness of Arenal Lodge. We hope we get to go back one day. It was the best.
