This was my first trip to Costa Rica. We stayed here for 3 nights. The service was excellent. Byron at the front was very helpful in setting us up for activities. He was able to get us on a water rafting activity at the very last minute which was awesome! We didn't realize that breakfast was included until we were... More

Great food, incredible views and wonderful service. We loved this place because the grounds were beautiful and relaxing. Thermal springs were an added bonus. This region of Costa Rica is also our favorite.

We enjoyed our stay at the Volcano Lodge & Springs! It was a great location, near downtown and all of the local activities. They had a good breakfast and plentiful natural thermal springs. The view of Arenal Mountain was amazing from the back of our bedroom patio! A nice place to stay!

My husband and I stayed here for one night as we wanted to explore the La Fortuna / Arenal area. The hotel grounds were so pretty and it felt like you were in amongst nature / wildlife. The hot springs were a really great experience, that was one thing off the bucket list for me :) The reception staff were... More

This is a completely honest review. The grounds, the hot springs, the pool areas absolutely stunning and so much fun for kids! Also the private pools in the thermal rooms are great too. However what really upset me here are a few things. Horrible Internet. If you are a business person, come with your own internet or you can't work... More

We loved this resort because the hot springs were on the property. They have two sets of springs and a pool, so they never felt crowded. Each night we ordered two for one drinks and hung out at the table in the springs while the kids swam. We also loved the view of the volcano from the patio off the... More

The Volcano Lodge Is a true paradise. The rooms were clean and comfortable, The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and the grounds were beautiful. There were trails, the pool was 24 hours and the hot springs were amazing. I have traveled many places and The Volcano Lodge is clearly the most bang for your buck!

The place was beautiful. We had a partial view of the volcano from our room. I loved that we could sit in the hot springs on site and have a drink. They even had a happy hour with 2 for 1 drinks. The grounds were nicely kept. Our room had a coffee maker, toiletries, flat screen TV, and rocking chairs... More
