The volcano gold loft cancelled my reservation in March 2020 due to COVID and stole my money. They even removed their email so customers can't contact them. Shame on you for stealing people's money during a pandemic when they are in need. Don't ever go there..
My first time in Costa Rica, my girlfriend and I spent 6 nights in La Fortuna at Volcano Gold. William, the owner and manager of the hotel is the coolest and most cheerful guy you will ever meet. Like the guy was crazy happy all the time with a huge smile and a infectous laugh that makes you want to laugh with him. Awesome host, he made our experience 10x better. He exeplifies the Costa Rican motto, "Pura Vida". The first night we got there he sat us down with a map and helped plan out our adventures each day. He gave us tips on the best times and days to do certain activities and avoid the crowds, as well as reccomending the best tour companies. He was a huge help in navigating the language barrier, he helped call our tour company to confirm pick up times and even ordered pizza for us!!! So the hotel off the beaten path on a dirt road, a little more than 5 minutes off the highway. Maybe like a 10min drive from town, and a way better option than being in the middle of everything. It's quiet and you feel like you have your own special enclave in the rainforest (there is only like 5 rooms). Good size pool is great to cool off in, but the hot tub was my favorite, it's in a gazebo with christmas lights a little ways away from the hotel surrounded by jungle. SO COOL! Don't count on going out for breakfast, becuase the provided one is fantastic, (pro tip: go with the costa rican and load it up with green sauce). If you get up early enought you can see toucans from window while eating breakfast! :) My one critique is our bed was a little hard and quite squeaky (wink, wink) if they got some softer mattresses the hotel would be perfect. If you are looking for a rambunctious resort experience, this isn't your place. It's down to earth, small, quiet, and wonderful. So go stay at the Volcano Gold and let William help you make your Costa Rican trip the best it can be!!!…
Me and my wife recently stayed in Volcano Gold Loft for 6 days and we absolutely loved it!! The hotel is nestled in the Costa rican jungle away from the busy town of La Fortuna so privacy is guaranteed. Rooms are great size and feel modern. Breakfast is included from 2 wonderful cooks. Unfortunately we never got their names but the food was great. Hats off to them!!!! William who is the front desk attendant is just fantastic. He was very friendly, funny, and helpful. His food recommendations were right on the money. great balance of quality and price. We can't say enough about him. If you stay at Volcano Gold Loft you will not regret it. Thank You very much
Our stay was paradise. William was so helpful and made our trip easy without having rented a car. Food was amazing. You cannot find a better view from your room, it was astonishing. Staff treat you like family. The site is clean and right in the middle of nature. Pool/jacuzzi were great! Path to hotel is but rough but worth it (not paved)
This family owned hotel was absolutely amazing. Everyone that works there is friendly. The location is perfect and the prices are affordable. It is a short stop away from Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna waterfall (you can swim here). The breakfast is delicious, you get three options (American, continental, or Costa Rican). There’s a small pool and hot tub out back. I saw some toucans on our last morning up in the trees over the pool and a gorgeous giant moth. Ask William about the tours if you don’t know who or what to book. He can help you find the best companies. Short stop away behind the hotel we went waterfall repelling which was fantastic. Thank you William for making our stay so great :) We appreciate all your help and your charismatic energy!
