“Amazing views, great priced and outstanding staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights to start off our Costa Rican vacation . I was a little worried about staying here after reading a few reviews simply bc of complaints of location. You definitely should have a car to stay here but don't absolutely need one. The hotel is a little outside of town but not that far. I think it probably has some of the best views of the volcano. Wake up early to get the best views and pictures!! The cabins are spacious and clean. The only complaint is that the beds are hard so we had to take blankets from the other bed just to add cushion. Our patio faced the volcano and was nice to sit and watch the fog pass over it every afternoon. I can't say enough positive things about the staff here. From the time we arrived until the second we drove away they were extremely helpful. One of the girls booked us a white water rafting excursion and we could not have been more pleased with her choice. She also gave us recommendations on places to eat. She spoke English very well. Breakfast was included and you had a choice of typical breakfast or eggs and toast. The breakfast was filling and fresh. We also had fresh fruit every morning. This hotel is a great value and I would stay here again.

Hotel Campo Verde is comfortable and clean, with personal touches that are very charming. The view of the volcano is perfect, and the flower gardens are very interesting. The breakfast was fresh and simple, and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. The accommodation is small individual cottages that are simply and comfortably furnished. This is a very good value for money, and we will certainly be back here again.

Room Tip: Cabin number 8 has a perfect view, although the others look to be excellent as well.

Very good place for a stay. Cabins are very nice . In the middle of the nature, the view on the Vocano is amazing. The receptionist Oneida, was very nice and helpfull. She adviced us clearly where to go hikking around the volcano or where to find places to take a dive. The rest of the staff was very much the same.
Enjoy your stay ;)

This place had one of the most amazing views of the volcano from the room. Waking up and seeing Arenal volcano was just awesome. The staff was very friendly in helping us book tours and arranging transportation. The breakfast was simple but good. The rooms are in a cabin and have no telephone so make sure you have a cell phone if needing to make calls. It is very at nature out there hearing the sounds of the animals that live in the forested areas of la fortunate. I would definitely recommend it to someone that wants an amazing view and doesn't mind the sounds of the outdoors.

This is a cabin on a small property so if you're expecting a nice hotel room the this isn't for you. The receptionists were very nice and helpful. They helped us have a great adventure in Arenal. The cabin has a big window facing the volcano so you wake up to a great view everyday. There were a few bugs here and there but again it's a cabin so it's expected. The shower was very relaxing with great water flow. Breakfast was great every morning served fruit and eggs with traditional gallo pinto. The hotel location is far from town but it's on the main road so you can easily catch the bus. At night we heard noises from the jungle but I'm sure it was just animals.

We stayed at Campo Verde early September. The bungalows are really spacy. They were very clean and had good beds. Breakfast was ok. The hosts were very willingly to help and advice.
You need however a car because the park is a bit out of town. You can park the car next to the bungalow.

The rooms are really great (bungalows with wooden sealing, large bathroom and room, nice little terrasse just in front of the volcano, comfortable and large beds, everything clean and pretty...), the hosts are nice, the location is very good (a bit out of La Fortuna so you need car to go downtown but peaceful place and a great view to the volcano - see my picture) and the breakfast is also very good.
