Individual cottages with great beds and shower. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent breakfast and super great pizza. Grounds are lovely and well tended. Offered information on activities in the area with free pickup. Lots to do...hanging bridges, hot springs, hikes, zip lining, horseback riding and more.

Picturesque setting, extremely friendly staff, and comfortable rooms. The food was excellent, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the overall atmosphere left me feeling like I wanted to come back as soon as possible.

We took a Gate 1 tour of Costa Rica and this was one of our stops along the way. They knew it was our honeymoon and had a beautiful towel swan with a congratulations card decorating the bed. I thought the Inn was beautiful and had lovely grounds. So I rated this high as it deserves it but if I... More

The location of this Inn was very nice and it was a great place to stay. The front desk ladies of Ailyean and Fernanda (sp) were exceptional as well as Brandon in the bar and Andres in the café. Room was clean and they catered to our group of 12 students with ease. They were especially great at helping us... More

I've led groups and traveled in Costa Rica many, many times. This was my first time at the Arenal Volcano Inn. I'd be happy to return when I'm in the area again and also recommend this hotel gladly to others. We all (six of us in total) loved the location, the rooms, and the grounds. We had a delicious dinner... More

We had such a wonderful time here! The people are so helpful, so sweet, and very willing to help you figure out what to do and how to get around. The breakfast was awesome and so was the coffee. The wifi is a bit spotty, but you're there to enjoy the area, not sit on your phone. We love this... More

We stayed at the Arenal Volcano Inn for 3 nights in early July. The cottages were great. Plenty of room for a family of 4 with a large bathroom and a great front patio with chairs and a table. The grounds were well manicured and the staff was pleasant and helpful. The front desk staff had an amazing grasp of... More

We really enjoyed this hotel! We had a jacuzzi suite which had a king size bed and was nice and spacious. The mini bar was reasonably priced, we had a beautiful view (unfortunately Arenal was mostly covered while we were there, but it was July), and the privacy you got with the private casita type buildings is fantastic. Breakfast was... More
