We paid $214 a night to stay here, only hotel room we could find in the area for our required dates. Disappointing is an understatement. We were greeted at the hotel by who I am assuming is the janitor yelling to our taxi driver to take us back to town because they were full before even greeting us or asking... More

This complex is such a gem, with so many other hotel options in the area it was tricky narrowing down my choice but I am so pleased I chose this place. The volcano view is amazing and the hut we stayed in was fantastic and so comfortable. There are plenty of shops just a short drive down the road toward... More

Had an enjoyable stay at Hotel Miradas. Their bungalows are private and provide great views of the volcano (when it's visible amongst the clouds). The room was nice and spacious. The balcony had a great view. The only downsides were not having any light in the bathroom (which they apparently couldn't fix), the A/C struggling to keep up with the... More

I was looking for a nice quiet place to stay with my mom. I aproached the young man at the front desk. He was on his computer, did not stand up from his chair, much less looked at me. He told me the price, and that was it, not even looking at my face. Very uninterested and once i asked... More

Loved the grounds and the service was terrific too. The bungalows are pretty spartan and our hot water didn't work but enjoyed every other aspect of our stay. Nice option if you want something small, quiet and more budget friendly. Beautiful flowers are all around the property and the breakfasts are good too

This place was amazing. We showed up late and in the dark, and Diego at the front desk was helpful enough to walk us to our bungalow and help us order some food from a late night delivery. The inside was wooden rustic one room, clean. When we woke up in the morning and pulled back the shades we were... More

Bit out of town, but if you want a quieter stay and have a car (which we did), it's a great place. Individual lodges give you real space and privacy. The breakfast was nice, view of the volcano was fantastic, and the birds around were really nice. Reception staff were also extremely helpful and nice. The room did attract quite... More

Room was nice, and on the clearer days gave a fantastic view of the volcano (on misty days the volcano was invisible). The breakfast was ok and the staff were generally helpful. The pool, however, was dirty and green, with a light dangling on its cable in the pool, so we didn't fancy going in. We were surprised to find... More

The room was very nice and had a perfect view of the volcano. There were toucan's, macaws and lots of other types of birds. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is in the Arenal area. Perfect location to do many different things.
