My husband and I chose to stay at the Hotel San Bosco based on previous trip advisor reviews, and we were really happy that our experience was pleasant. The hotel is located just a little off of one of the main street in Arenal, so it was easily to just go out and walk around the town. The staff at the hotel were super friendly and helpful. They were accommodating in changing money, giving us restaurant/bar suggestions, etc. [We didn't book tours through them, however, as tours can be book for a far cheaper price by using a n independent booker].
The room is ideal if you're just looking for a clean, comfortable place to sleep, which is what we wanted. It's simply furnished (TV, hot water, A/C), but everything was in good working condition. The room was cleaned daily, and we really enjoyed the creative towel animals.
Breakfast was decent - their pinto gallo was the best I had on the whole trip. Breakfast is served next to the pool each morning (which is cleaned every day)...However, I would steer clear of the jams, as there are many flies that surround that area. It was slightly off-putting, and they really should be kept in a different container.
On the final day, we were get get a great view of the volcano, and got some great shots of it from the hotel's observational deck on the 3rd floor.
Overall, we would definitely stay at the Hotel San Bosco again!
