Once we got to the top of the mountain where Arenal Lodge is located, we thought we'd never want to leave again. Not just because the road is bumpy, but because the sense of peace surrounds you once you arrive. We had a junior suite that overlooked Arenal Volcano which we learned we lucked out on as we saw its majestic beauty daily. Breakfast was quite good, and we had very nice dinners three nights. The grounds to this place are astonishing. On Thursday's a guide takes guests for a nature hike/tour. There is a trail that you can follow through a butterfly garden and a stone path leading down to stream. There are stone sitting/eating structures around the property. The lodge is located west of La Fortuna and is close to lots of nature places to explore. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will go back again.
