“Great place to be - surrounded by nature!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. One surprise was its size (feel more like a resort than a lodge - very spread out with multiple pools) and the second was the diversity of plant and birdlife there. Their gardens attract a huge number of birds (including loads of humming birds), so we were constantly entertained by them during our 3-night stay. The included breakfast was very good and we had dinner in the restaurant a couple of times as well - I'm often warry of hotel restaurants but the food was surprisingly good! Also have nice memories of happy hour drinks in the thermal pools nearby. We only got to see Volcan Arenal for about 2 hours (normally in the clouds at this time of year) but the view really was as great as it looks in the promo photos). Great place to stay and great location - just outside of La Fortuna and easy driving distance to all local attractions/activities.

The only thing that wasn't great here, were the happy-hour deals at the bar, they only had a few simple drinks on special (for example: rum and coke) and they were made with really cheap house liqueurs .

Room Tip: The newly remodeled rooms are awesome, the older ones seem to have the same comodities(obviously not...

The Volcano Lodge & Springs was a great place to stay. Beautiful views, wonderful hot spring on the grounds, good service.
Getting here takes a while on the winding roads, be prepared to drive slow.
Too far to town walk but it's only a short drive to town and several other activities in the general area. All around a pleasant stay.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were nice for the price. The views, service, and natural springs were what really made the Volcano Lodge a great place to stay. I would recommend Volcano Lodge & Springs to other travelers that are looking for a nice place at a decent price.

Great value. Loved happy hour in the hot springs. Volcano was covered in clouds the entire time but it was the perfect place to stay in arenal. Great home base for all of our adventures and close enough to town to be convenient.

My sister and I stayed here last week and it was wonderful. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. They helped us organize day trips and taxis.
The property is alot bigger than we had expected. 2 pools, 2 jacuzzis, and a great hot spring pool which was great to sit in and have a drink while it was raining.
The restaurant was surprisingly good and everyone is so friendly! Free breakfast in the AM. and Happy hours twice a day at the front bar and swim up bar at the pool.
Rooms were great too, big bathrooms, AC, and back patios with two chairs.
Would highly recommend for a stay with family or a couple.

Room Tip: The rooms by the restaurant are great b/c the Patios face the Arenal Volcano! And close to the hot s...
