Would definitely recommend this place. It's slightly out of town, but that's definitely a good thing! There are cafés and restaurants nearby and it's only about a 20 minute walk into town. The rooms are clean and spacious and a great breakfast is included (provided by the cafe next door). Rebeca on reception is really helpful with booking activities.

It's a nice little hotel. The staff is very friendly. The view is very beautiful. There is a great restaurant next door (mi casa) and a supermarket in front. The room is small, the beds are very uncomfortable, no toiletries (paid the same price for a big hotel with everything included) and the wall are very thin. I still can... More

Great location off main road. Stayed in room 1 lower level. Ask for more pillows if possible. Huge shower, but then again it was a handicap accessible room. Fast WIFI and free breakfast were a bonus. We stayed one night and left early next morning so never saw pool or hot tub. Overall great value and would stay here again.... More

We stayed here for two nights. It's a bargain hotel. There are no bells and whistles - that's for sure. The walls were pretty thin as you could hear everything from the room next to you to the people in the building next door. The beds are pretty uncomfortable, but they work. Bring your own toiletries. We were very thankful... More

It is a nice little place to stay. They give you a solid breakfast, that's for sure. Air conditioning, TV and a small pool. Parking is not big at all, they can probably fit five or six cars there. Does not have view of the Arenal Volcano.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Vista del Cerro for four nights in December. The rooms were clean and spacious and we had a perfect view of the volcano.

I recently stayed at Hotel Vista del Cerro. They offer superior guest service as I left a valuable item there and was met in San Jose at my hotel the night before departure from Costa Rica by one of their family members with the item in hand. He even refused compensation repeatedly for the service. Bird watching from the pool,... More

I stayed Hotel Vista del Cerro for two nights in May and I strongly recommend this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was good as everything is around the hotel– a supermarket is just across the street, a nice restaurant is just next to the hotel and others are also short walking distance.
