“Picturesque setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Beautifully landscaped grounds and individual bungalows give a very natural feel to this resort. The rooms were clean and large enough for our group of three. Nice pool and jacuzzi. All you can eat breakfast was perfect to energize a day of activity. I would suggest that they install more lighting in the rooms. Hard to read with available lights in the dark wood walls. We would have liked to see the volcano but the hotel can't control the weather!

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Lomas del Volcan. We stayed in Cabin #512, which had an AMAZING view of the volcano. The grounds are beautiful and the cabins were perfect for our family of four. The bathrooms are large and the covered patio off the back of the cabin was perfect for sitting outside. The complimentary breakfast was quite good with made-to-order omelettes, pancakes, gallo pinto, fresh fruit, and fresh fruit juice. We didn't book any excursions through the hotel, as prices were much better to book directly. The only drawback that we experienced was that we made our reservation through Expedia, and it only indicated two adults were staying in the room, so we had to pay an additional $25 per night per kid. I wasn't happy with that surprise, but even with the extra $100 charge, it was a good rate.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cabin #512 and it had one of the very best views of the volcano. Several in the #500 r...

First time to Costa Rica. Hotel was booked through CostaRicaVacations.com [which is excellent!!]. Two sides of road. If you are on the side that the main building is on, you will have a nice view of the volcano. If not you will be hidden from its splendor. Cabins are beautiful with lovely beds and large bathroom. Awesome porch. Breakfast was included and just soso. Dried out food was usually the problem. Staff was lovely. Had dinner there but only once. That was enough.Again, dry and tasteless. Great resturant down the street though. Very clean place. Refrige in room, which was nice. Bring you hiking shoes and raingear!!!!!!

Room Tip: 310 was at the top of hill and had great view of volcano and not too long of a walk to resturant.

My family stayed last week for two nights and were very impressed with the cleanliness of the bungalo's (no bugs)..and scenery. It rained heavy at night but we enjoyed that. You have a covered private patio so rain isn't a problem. We ate twice at the restaurant...I had the Sea Bass which was amazingly delicious. I wasn't impressed by the pasta although the price was priced low. The grounds reminded me of Hawaii...
We did use the jacuzzi one night in the drizzle...but the jacuzzi is covered so that was nice.
We will defnitely stay there again the next time we are in that area. Plus the location is great...20 minutes to Hanging Bridges of Arenal, 5 minutes to Fortuna...
My kids did the night frog /snake tour...and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We checked out a few other hotels...Lost Iguana and Springs...but didn't like how Springs was so many miles off the main road on a dirt road and didn't like the location of Lost Iguana...

Room Tip: concierge was very nice...almost made a mistake booking Vernado Caves tour...until another hotel gue...

This is a great hotel in Fortuna. This is one where the service was good. The food was good. The only thing is that it was a little rainy, but I guess that is expected for the location. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

The grounds were beautiful, the staff at the front desk were helpful, breakfast was good (they had watermelon and pineapple juice!), and even the dinner we ate at the hotel restaurant was excellent. The private cabins are well cleaned and surrounded by beautiful plants.

If only the hotel could stop the rain...

I'd highly recommend this spot!

We really liked this hotel - nice, clean rooms. Good location - great view of Arenal (if it's clear...it rained the whole time we were there). It's set back pretty far off the main road, which we loved, but if you're looking for a spot where you can walk downtown/to bars/etc. this is definitely not it. Solid breakfast included. Overall a great spot & not over priced like a lot of the Arenal resorts seemed to be.
