I always do my research and pick highly rated places like Volcano Lodge but still look at the minority negative reviews and still feel a little nervous. Glad to say that I have always been and continue to be rewarded. When people complain about a place being too rustic etc... I seriously wonder what they are use to. This place...

The staff was very helpful, the food in the restaurant was delicious, great breakfast buffet, nice clean rooms, with A/C, cable tv, free wifi, great hot springs, and all for a reasonable price. Would stay here again.

Location was lovely. Had to take taxi to town to eat outside of the hotel. Beautiful setting. Hot Springs with table service in the pools, which was a huge plus. Service excellent. They did fun animal shapes with the towels, added flowers, really fun. Only negative, there was only one restaurant at the hotel, and it was too expensive for...

Stayed for 1 night, 4 female travellers in a double room, upgraded to the suite with our own personal Jacuzzi hot springs in the back porch - do it! Fantastic views of the Arenal volcano from everywhere in the resort, including our room. Check in was a breeze - we were even able to check in earlier. Welcome non-alcoholic cocktail...

Loved the location of Volcano Lodge. Close enough to La Fortuna to eat and Arenal Lake/Mountain for other adventures. The upgrade to a private hot spring in the room is a must and the cleanliness and privacy was great. I would recommend for someone who likes high quality places to stay and a helpful concierge. Breakfast was the same every...

I stayed here 7 years ago and the price was still comparable to what I paid 7 years ago. Service is excellent, rooms are very clean with fans, air conditioning, and state of the art entry, and electric connection. AND there is free WIFI through out the property that you and your family could use without any problem.

My girlfriend and I stayed here from a Thursday afternoon until Saturday afternoon in early June of 2015, but I was able to compare this stay to a trip I made with my family only two weeks earlier at another hotel nearby. I found that the excursions offered by this hotel provided more fun and exciting experiences than at the...

An exceptional value that far exceeds what you would pay in comparison to hotels in the area. The staff is friendly and the grounds are beautiful! Offered a stunning view of the Arenal Volcano…and the moment is even more surreal as you soak in the hot spring pool or the hotel pool. We picked the room with a private hot...
