Arenal Volcano Inn spoiled us! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the grounds were lovely, and the restaurant on site was really quite delicious. All for very reasonable prices. It's not a "luxury" accommodation, but it's extremely clean, comfortable, and welcoming: The place has just what you need, and nothing you don't. I'd definitely recommend it to friends. Thanks,...

This hotel and restaurant were the perfect way to end a day of high adventure. We really enjoyed the lovely restaurant and especially the homemade desserts. Rooms are spacious, comfy beds, nice and clean. Pool and jacuzzi were great too, and of course it's always nice to have a buffet breakfast.

The view of Arenal Volcano from the cabanas and the restaurant are breathtaking. Our stay at Arenal Vocano Inn was very enjoyable. The room was clean, and the service was excellent. We weren't as impressed with the restaurant, but the food wasn't bad at all. We thought the price was a little high and found that the food in town...
