This is a really nice hotel, with a nice room (mastersuite), with an absolutely amazing view of Arenal and the lake. The pool area is also very nice. Room is nice and clean, and staff is friendly. The restaurant needs to improve, before we can rate this place five stars. Especial

We stayed in a junior suite which had 2 double beds and a refrigerator. There is a TV but only channels in Spanish. The room was very spacious with a wall of windows overlooking the lake and volcano. There was a nice sized patio with a bench. I wish there had been more c

How do you arrange transportation from San Jose airport to hotel?
We rented a car from the airport, but there are several tourist businesses and other hotels nearby that could probably help with this. Also, try contacting Linda Vista directly about this. The staff was very helpful.

Transportation to hotel from airport
It's been a long time since we were there. We flew in late and spent one night close to the airport, and the next day took a shuttle to Linda Vista. I believe the ride lasted two or three hours?

Can you walk to the lake from this hotel?
You surely can walk to the lake, if you wish, as the hotel is close just above the lake. But - be aware, there is no lake promenade or beach like on a sea resort such as Playa Grande. I was in the Linda Vista twice and I always preferred to head for the volcano Arenal with its amazing walks (I did Cerro Chato with the Tucans outside the observatory park and I also liked the park for some easy strolling around).

Are there any restaurants, bars or grocery stores in walking distance (less than one mile) other than those on site at the hotel?
Hi Alisha, thank you very much for your interest in our hotel, yes there are small restaurants, a bar and a couple of small grocery stores called pulperias for basic things in El Castillo town about 5 minutes walk from Linda Vista Hotel. Hope to have you as our guest! Any further information please let us know
