Beautifully located with a view of the volcano and set in gorgeous gardens this hotel is a great find for the price. Each "cabin" has a private patio area from which you can enjoy the gardens and spot a variety of exotic birds. The hotel is located a few miles outside La Fortuna but this was not a problem as the reception staff were happy to help us arrange trips and transportation. The breakfast was delicious and served in a lovely outdoor dining area. Dinner was good (but not great) and at a reasonable price.
Be warned - Arenal has a very wet climate. When we stayed in rained every day and the room became slightly damp.
