What a great hotel!! Loved the cabins which faced the volcano-- great food, friendly, helpful staff, beautiful surroundings. No complaints whatsoever. Just right!! We used it as a base for other adventures, but could have just stayed there, hiked around and lounged around the grounds.

They run ATV tours from the hotel and the ATVs are stored an open doorway from the restaurant. The pool and hot...

I loved my bungalow style one bedroom with view of La Fortuna volcano out the front window. Coupled with friendly staff and soothing rain at night-a wonderful retreat plus a great nights sleep. Includes breakfast

Was at La Pradera with my wife for 2 nights..we rented a private "cabaña" with views of the always beautiful Arenal volcano. The hotel is located near La Fortuna but you need some kind of transportation to get to town. Breakfast is included in the price of the rent but is very simple and small portions. ATV tours are located...
