great lodge on the way to Cerro Chato, definite recommendation!
+ nice location in a green jungle-style area, weather-depending volcano view
+ little to no traffic on the nearby street, no party-noise at all (due to the location outside of the town)
+ helpful owner, has maps and recommendations without pressure to buy tours
+ bathroom and room in very good condition, shelves/space to unpack your backpack
+ clean rooms
+ excellent value for money
An o.k.-breakfast is included. Please consider that the location outside the city has its advantages (street-noise) and drawbacks. Without a car you need 15-20 minutes to walk to the main street with supermarket and restaurant, 15 minutes more to the town itself. A taxi to the town is approx. Col 3000 (US-$ 6, unexpectedly all cabs are metered). So if you are a party-tiger, this might not be the best choice for you.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located at the base of the Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica (2.5 kms. from La Fortuna, on the road to Catarata Rio's Fortuna and only 15minutes by car from Tabacon's Hot Springs) with a spectacular view of the southeast side of the volcano, we have the advantage of being at a slightly higher altitude than La Fortuna, thus cooler. Also, we are off the main road enough to avoid the sound of grinding gears that are audible from almost all other hotels. The rooms are very spacious (32m2) with 1 double and 1 single bed, a large private bath with hot water, screened windows, ceiling fans, verandas with table and chairs, and landscaped grounds abundant with tropical flowers and birds. Full breakfast, available lunches, horse rental, laundry, internet service and secure parking lot. ... more less
