“Perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Fabulous place. Clear and large room, very friendly people. They always want to help you. Food is excellent all day long. We even bring our own wine. The server served us with a big smile.

Only thing wrong: WIFI signal is too low in some room.

I very good place to stay with familly, friend or couple. We had a massage, a lot expensive, but very professionnal.

Room Tip: Room in center lane are quiet with semi-private place to admire nature

This place has everything you need: air conditioning, cable tv, clean bathroom, individual patio, swim up bar in the pool, and decent food. The pool service was very good and the servers were always accommodating to our needs. It's in a beautiful location and perfect if you have multiple activities planned.

Clean spacious room with terrace overlooking volcano. If you leave a window open, you'll be awakened by birds and howler monkeys. Front desk staff very helpful with arrangements. Beautifully landscaped. Nice pool, open air restaurant and bar. Very good breakfast buffet. Centrally located between La Fortuna and Arenal/Tabecon but you'll need to arrange transportation to go anywhere (nothing is really within walking distance). Good wifi reception in our room. Would stay here again

Room Tip: Rm 315. Good wifi reception and view of volcano.

Very nice hotel with nice rooms at a good rate. We stayed on night in the Arenal area and visited the Skytram, Skywalk the next day.
The grounds are very green and nicely laid out. The employees were all very nice and helpful. We had drinks and dinner at the restaurant the the breakfast was quite good as well. The location is very convenient to the volcano area.
We would stay here again.

My husband and I recently stayed four nights at the Volcano Lodge, thanks to a great deal on Living Social. We loved the beautiful setting they created with the many native plants that attracted an abundance of birdlife! Our room 202 looked directly onto a huge stock of trees that had plenty of birds flitting around at all hours, and the plant immediately outside our room drew a constant stream of hummingbirds. Our view of the volcano was a bit obstructed by this growth and the mist from the rain on several days, but it was still great! From any room, you could strike out on a great walking path through the grounds. Additionally, there were several other walking paths, including one dedicated to growing some organic produce for the hotel restaurant! It was great to see that they utilized the pineapple plants for breakfast!

The room was very comfortable, with modest natural decorations, a refreshing change of pace from the glitzy resorts. The bathroom/shower was very American style, with spacious accommodations.We loved coming back at night and seeing the special towel creature creations the housekeeping staff had prepared and graced with natural flower petals! Each room also had a terrace with two leather rocking chairs looking out onto the incredible scenery.

The breakfast buffet area was a nice outdoor dining area by the pool, and looked onto the Arenal Volcano. The breakfast was enjoyable, but not extraordinary, with the exception of the fresh fruit.....delicious! We also enjoyed several lunches and dinners there, and would recommend the delicious hamburger, which is big enough to split! They also offered arroz con pollo and typical dishes, which were very good and fresh.

The front desk at the hotel arranged several day trips for us, all of which we enjoyed, and the spa was nice, too.

We would definitely stay here again!

This was a very nice resort. Great restaurant, nice pool, comfortable beds, friendly staff! Our sightseeing started very early in the morning and they prepared 2 box breakfasts for us without asking. Loved the free wireless in our room but wish we could see the volcano from the room.

I was pleasantly surprised -- the lodge was so reasonably priced that I did not expect much. Instead I was amazed. It was very clean, the gardens were amazing. I would take my coffee and walk the gardens every morning. The staff was the friendliest -- the front desk staff would help me with all my arrangements since we could not get our cell phone to work. The breakfast was great including made to order omelettes. The best part was the towel animals that the housekeeping staff would leave each day -- better than a cruise.
