The hotel is set in a stunning location - we arrived just as the clouds lifted on Arenal, and we were lucky to see the summit as well as a stunning sunset over the lake. There is a nice pool with a view over the lake and volcano as well. Looking back, we probably got a lower rated room than... More

When we arrived to our room the first night, we were unpleasantly surprised to see the condition of the room (#9). It was very old and outdated, with TV channels only in Spanish. My fiance went to use the toilet, and found that it was full of feces left from the previous stay. When we went to complain about the... More

Hotel Linda vista is not in La Fortuna, is about 14 miles on the way to the national park, part of the drive is though a dirt road, however the view and the hotel location worth the drive, most of the rooms offers a great view to the volcano and lake, there is a very good restaurant and swimming pool

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel with our 2 children. We had a room with the view on the Arenal. The view is stunning, from rooms, dinner room and pool, but the service is quite poor. The family room is basically a 20-25m2 room with 2 double beds close to each other with desks behind and a small table... More

The hotel is a bit of a drive down a bumpy a unpaved road outside of the Arenal Volcano National Park... but is 100% worth it. The views are incredible of the volcano, provided it's not covered in clouds. The infinity pool is spectacular and heated, there is also a hot tub. Breakfast is free and very good. Staff is... More

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.
