We loved staying at the Roca Negra. We had our own little cabin, complete with AC and rocking chairs on the front porch. You could see the volcano from the hotel, and there were lots of wonderful birds and flowers to view on the grounds of the property. A big plus of this hotel was the fact that there was... More

If you're looking for a four star restaurant, emasculate and expensive facilities, this is not your place. HOWEVER, if you want a very quaint place, that grows most of its fruits that it serves at breakfast and a place that is very clean and friendly.....this is your place. We loved that it was only a 10 minute drive from Arenal... More

Stayed here for just 1 night but would have loved to have stayed longer. The pool and spa pool were definitely appreciated, a great temperate but not exactly as described as a 'hot spring.' None the less we had them to ourselves and the view of the volcano is incredible, with loungers and umbrellas. Rooms had comfortable beds, air conditioning,... More

The Hotel Roca Negra is just outside of La Fortuna, within walking distance of a number of excellent restaurants. Although it is located on the highway, the cabins are set back far enough that you do not hear the traffic. There are as of writing only nine cabins. They are a good size, though plain. Our air conditioner did not... More

My friend and I just spent 5 nights at Roca Negra. It's a little slice of paradise. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The gardens are beautifully landscaped. When it's clear out you can see the volcano from the rooms and the pool. The staff are super friendly and helpful. We booked all our tours through the hotel at... More

There are 9 rooms. Very well cared for. Beautiful gardens all around the property. Swimming pool and jacuzzi. Also available is a fantastic breakfast for a reasonable price each morning. If you like small boutique hotels to relax, this is the place to stay in LA Fortuna .

The nicest hotel of our trip (13 hotels in total). We did make a reservation by mail far in advance. It was needed because the hotel was full during the nights we did stay. The hotel did cost 80$ per night for a double room with AC, cash only. The best part of the hotel is the lovely garden and... More

First of all this isn't really a hotel, more individual cabins with some hotel facilities. Each 'cabin' has a patio area with a hanging chairs or hammock, which overlooks the peaceful garden. As others have mentioned, the garden is beautiful and attracts many types of birds and butterflies. There is also a pool area with a hot tub and a... More

Loved our stay (be it short) at Hotel Roca Negra del Arenal. You can't be the breathtaking views from the hotel room. There are rockers and hammocks outside each room and the grounds are fun to explore, tons of birds and tropical flowers. Elizabeth is great and the breakfast was an amazing deal - delicious and filling for only $7.... More
