Hotel Bijagua is a great place to stay. Paola is very friendly, efficient and helpful. She organised our trips and a shuttle to our next destination. The location is great - next to a supermarket and across the road from a great restaurant. It is walking distance to town and when the clouds lift has views of Arenal volcano.

This hotel is perfect. The owners are extremely helpful, the grounds quaint, rooms comfortable and the location central to lots of activities. The pool is a nice addition. If you are looking for a hotel to say at while you explore the area, look no further!

Charming little place. Grounds were well kept, and the amenities were great. The staff were extremely welcoming and provided lots of travel tips. The room was clean and comfortable. Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended!

This little hotel has everything you need in a budget. Swimming pool, a nice shower, refrigerator, comfortable beds... The staff was also very welcoming and there are two restaurants right in front, plus the supermarket nextdoor. My only concern was the rooster nextdoor and a dog that barked a couple times in the night. I slept very well anyway, with...

Loved this place! We had a view volcano arenal that was breath taking! I highly reccomend. Paola the owner will go the extra mile to help you. The cons: the hotel is a little noisy because of the animals (you are in costa rica what do you expect!), but the hotel gives you free ear plugs. The pool is nice,...

We chose this hotel based on reviews and were not disappointed. The supermarket next door was highly convenient with the kitchen in our unit, we borrowed the bikes to go into "town" but also walked there, Red Frog has delicious drinks next door and Mi Casa Soda across the street was a family favourite. They made us a special iced...

Hotel Bijagua is conveniently situated next to grocery store at the foot of Arenal Volcano and minutes away from many top spots. If you’re lucky and arrive on a clear day you’ll see the entire cone volcano rising above the reception area of the hotel. We stayed in the suite with a full kitchen. Paula and David really tried to...

We spent three nights here and loved it. Super friendly staff, great room, view of the volcano and close to lots of restaurants and the town. Good sized room and very clean. We really enjoyed the pool and breakfast was big, several choices and food was delicious! Would recommend as a great choice.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Frank on the front desk was very friendly and helpful, providing advice about where to visit and booking taxis for us. The owner was great too, he wanted to make sure we felt at home. The room was comfortable and felt like a home from home. In the Arenal rainforest reserve which is...

We just spent two nights at Hotel Bijagua and would have stayed longer if there'd been availability. This small family run hotel is managed by a lovely young couple, David and Paola. From the moment we walked in the door we were made to feel welcome and they couldn't have been more helpful over the next two days. Both David...
