This lodge's location is great, you're able to see the top of the volcan arenal without getting neck pain. The landscaping is well kept and their beautiful bird "Estefania" is free to fly around the area but manages to fly back to the reception area to greet visitors. The room we had a good size kitchen just big enough to prepare snack and your favorite drink. The staff are more then willing to help you with whatever you might need. This Lodge is a good 10-15 minutes drive up the mountain but it's worth it just to get the great views and for those concern about an active volcano, this puts you at a very safe distance and still enjoy the views.
