Guided by Tripadvisor reviews we stopped here for a night on the way to Arenal volcano. Properly well kept and has beautiful volcano view. Manicured lawn, beautiful flowers, stone pawed walkways, big pool and jacuzzi. Clean rooms with quiet split room ac systems installed, showers with plenty of hot water.

Villas Vilma is a ten unit travlers motel that provides a resort feel at a very fair price. Being located right on the major road gives you quick access to municipal buses and local businesess. The staff is helpful and the grounds are kept manicured by a master gardener. The Black Rock travlers motel next door provides an american breakfast. Don't forget to see the peacocks and the back three acres of typical volcanoe terrain landscape. Vilma's pool and covered hot tub is a pleasure generous in size and its appealing setting.

Lovely place to stay, great value for money well recommended. Great pool and hot tub. Staff very friendly. Room spacious and comfortable.
Great view of the volcano. More like apartments than hotel rooms. Good restaurants nearby. Very clean and well looked after.

We stayed here for one evening on our way from San Jose over to the coast. The hotel is conveniently located and clean. The staff are very friendly. We had a beautiful view of the Arenal volcano from our room. Property is well-maintained and, although we didn't get to partake, the pool and hot tub looked very clean and inviting. Surprisingly, there is a lot of traffic on the main road that the hotel is off of, so the road noise was a little loud at times. The noise subsides, as the traffic does, into the evening hours. We were several rooms off of the road, so I imagine that the traffic noise would be louder in the rooms closer to the road. Overall, a good experience and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room further away from road to avoid the sound of traffic.

They had nice clean rooms and the staff was very helpful with booking the shuttle and getting taxis. It was a decent price for the room and the accommodations were perfect for our one night stay. Its conveniently located in walking distance from restaurants and shops

This place exceeded my expectations.

We only stayed one night, but would have liked to stay more.

The gardens were lush and beautiful, as was the view of Arenal Volcano from the entrance.

The included breakfast is in a neighbouring hotel and that was really nice.

The owners were helpful and friendly.
