We really enjoyed our stay in this Family owned Hotel again. We already stayed there Last year. We booked the spacious family room. Their brand new lodges are also beautiful. The tropical gardens are great. You can see a lot of birds and plants. Hope that we can come back soon.

Driving up the road toward Brisas Arenal, you may question your decision. That will all chance once you enter in through their beautiful front gate and find yourself in a wonderland of flowers, plants and fruit trees that are naturally manicured. The intimate bungalows are new, clean and have an inviting porch for you to watch the hummingbirds just a...

Very cozy cabins all wood with great service from owners. Went to a family room with sleep 6 accommodations, there is capacity for 30 people so a relative small. The breakfast is very good, typical CR continental or pancakes with fresh local fruits. Second time here and still very good, I will return if I am around.

This little gem is about 10 minutes off the main road. The perfect place to wake birding in the la fortuna / arenal area. It was just what we needed after flying in to be dropped here and welcomed to the country. Our room was comfortable and modern. They were so helpful - I left my jacket in the shuttle...

Great property with a nice view to the volcano. Friendly family owners. Very nice breakfast. Large spaces with well maintained garden. You have space in front of your room to hang out on your porch. Would visit again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights at Arenal. From the from porch, you can actually see the volcano (actually we never did because of the clouds), but the view on a nice day would be absolutely perfect from a rocking chair on the porch. It's close enough that you can walk to the waterfall, and you can...

Great local family run eco-lodge in the a neighborhood less than 5 minutes from town. My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was amazing!

We loved this place. We stayed in the "suite with bathtub." This place is tranquil, safe, the owners are really helpful. The landscaping was impeccable. It's about a mile off the main highway into town. So if you don't have a car, keep that in mind. The last half mile is a dirt road. We were able to navigate it...

It was clean and comfortable. It's central location was great to access all of Arenals sites and excursions. The evenings were peaceful and quiet. We had a rental car so did not have to worry about Taxi's. It was hard to find at first but once we got there once it was easy to get back to after our excursions.

Thank you so much for your opinion! We are really glad you enjoyed your stay over here, we expect you to come back soon! Our menu is really traditional so that's why there's not a huge variety of it, but we'll take that on count.
