Good location. 4$ USD taxi rides to downtown. Great pool and jacuzzi area. Got the bungalow and it was a outdated inside but the gardens outside were lush and beautiful with a view of the volcano. Cold A/C which was important to us. The staff wasn't very friendly but that's what you get when you stay at a larger hotel.... More

We loved this hotel! It was close to the town but on the way to the volcano sites too. We had a room facing the pools and the volcano. The rooms are clean and very comfortable - and the cleaning lady makes the best animal towel arrangements we have ever seen (every day was a different one!). The food and... More

The rooms are quite comfortable and kept clean. The food is tasty and the customer service is quite nice. I thought that it was a nice little added feature that they have a hot tub by the pool. My only little issue was that the wifi signal was very weak, I couldn't find where the strongest area was to use... More

La Pradera provided a good base from which to explore the Arenal area. We had a bungalow at the back for 2 nights. The room was large but dimly lit. The AC worked well. The bathroom was large but with the dark walls and dark green fixtures, it was very dark, too. We loved sitting on our large porch to... More

We stayed at a bungalow in the back and had a gorgeous room completed crafted from wood! It was gorgeous, clean and very comfortable. The staff was amazing, very helpful to the point where it almost felt like home. We loved the fresh made to order omelets for breakfast as well as the coffee, french toast, fresh fruit and traditional... More

Excellent bungalow right in front of the volcano. I couldn't see the volcano cuz of the clouds but so what. The bungalow was off the charts great. Breakfast was included and fantastic. A real nice selection of food. The front desk service was really great. Always a smile and very patient. I would recommend this place and i would definitely... More

Well located and within easy walking distance of the village including restaurants and cafes, this property has an attractive swimming pool and large spa. Service was polite. The room was clean. I booked a basic double room from which a great deal of traffic noise, especially trucks, could be heard 24 hours a day. I expect that rooms at the... More

Stayed in a bungalow with a super view of the volcano. Room was large as was the bathroom. Ac worked quietly and efficiently. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of food. Staff was ok but don't ask for cold milk for the cereal....only yogurt. Neat little city with a good location. Take time to watch the ants cutting leaves... More

We had a bungalow which was amazing. It had a big bedroom and a big bathroom, very clean. We enjoyed the front porch with the chairs. It was very private and the grounds were lush and beautiful.

The pool is great to relax at, the buffet breakfast is AMAZING. I'd stay there again just to eat breakfast. The rooms are spacious with nice front porches to sit on and enjoy some coffee in the morning before another adventure. I loved this place.
