I stayed for one night here and I wish I'd stayed longer! The staff are very friendly, happy to speak in Spanish or English, and the view is unbelievably beautiful. I was in room 107 and I recommend it to anyone! You can wake up in the morning looking straight at the volcano. The rooms are lovely and quiet and... More

Beautifully landscaped and clean rooms with magnificent views of Mt. Arenal -which we were fortunate to see on a clear day during our stay. The included breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, but the brick oven pizza we had called the volcano was pretty good along with the antipasto salad. Staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms were... More

This hotel should be renamed 'volcano view' as from all around it you have the view of the amazing Arenal volcano, inc the restaurant, the bedrooms and the pool.

This is a small hotel, "Inn" is a bit of a misnomer, it's definitely a tightly run operation with guards, etc. It's a bit pricey too, and the bar tab is the highest we paid in CR. The location is perfect - right between La Fortuna and Arenal, so attractions are nearby. The rooms are very nice and ours had... More
