We stayed here for six nights, at the beginning of a three week, tour of Costa Rica and loved it. Great location, about 10 mins taxi ride from La Fortuna, which has lots of restaurants, a bank, gift shops and a beautiful little main square where the locals meet at night. We had a junior suite for two adults and three children, which turned out to be one large room with two double beds and a single - not ideal. However, the hotel was able to rent us the room next door to our original accommodation which made life far easier. Arenal hotel is really a little complex of houses in beautifully tended tropical gardens, clustered around two swimming pool areas, which both have hot tubs and bar services. All rooms seem to have a great view of the volcano (when it finally breaks through the cloud) and the main restaurant is a fantastic vantage point too. Food was high quality and plentiful, although the buffet worked out to be the most expensive option. This is an excellent base for exploring the Volcano and surrounding area and seems to suit families and couples alike.
