Guests will enjoy lounging within the hotel's unique three-tiered swimming pool, which affords spectacular views of the volcano, and relaxing jacuzzi. The Loma Linda Restaurant serves up a nice variety of international and national meals, including a large free breakfast every morning. Guests in need of libations can visit the bar, which is stocked with beers, wines, juices, liquors and more. The rooms at Linda Vista are clean and spacious. Tile floors extend to private terraces, where guests can sit and enjoy astounding views of the Arenal Volcano. All rooms are equipped with a private hot water bathroom, ceiling fan, a/c, and coffee maker.

We spent 3 nights in this beautiful hotel in early August. Rooms are big and simply furnished with balconies overlooking Lake Arenal and the volcano. Condition of property is great: landscaping, dining room, guest rooms. Staff were so nice, friendly, and helpful, like all Costa Ricans we interacted with. Breakfast was typical Costa Rican with fruit, rice/beans, eggs, toast, and a slice of cheese. Great coffee of course. We were the only guests one night, 2-3 other rooms were occupied the other nights. Lots of adventure activities in local area, recommend canopy tour with Go Adventures. We do not recommend driving from San Jose to get to La Fortuna, but we did survive. This and many other hotels have suffered due to Covid travel restrictions, give them your business if you can. Highly recommended.
