What a delightful experience and stay at Villas San Rafael. The love of being a host exudes from Giovanni. Both he and Luis are so hospitable and are on site 24/7 to make sure you have the most pleasant experience possible. Giovanni loves cooking and his meals are prepared with joy. No need to worry about eating, they can do it all here. Our family loved staying there and enjoying the pool, nature & warm showers....yes, they have hot showers! This place is perfect for families and groups, and designed so well that you can stay outdoors & still enjoy nature while it’s raining. Villas San Rafael is also close enough to enjoy all the activities around Arenal. Luis can book excursions for you. My nine year-old gives them 5 Stars!

We had such a lovely stay. The host and staff went out of their way to make our stay perfect. They made us feel like family. Make sure you stay and have dinner and dessert on the property! Giovanni is the perfect host. He is the property owner and is always on site to help. He asked us what we wanted for dinner and made our whole family a multiple course meal that blew us away! The warmth and kindness from this man is genuine and he made our stay perfect. We felt loved and safe and cared for. I can’t tell you enough this is more than worth it. The right people make all the difference in the world when traveling. Thankful for our visit and this experience!

Giovanni and his team are so welcoming and kind-hearted. We have visited them twice, and will return again. And we will recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the Arenal Volcano in La fortuna. La Tigra is nearby, but less touristy and not as pricey. When we visit La Tigra now, it's like coming to our second home. The food is great (delicious breakasts!) but you can also cook easy meals in the room. The scenery is breathtaking and the hotel is a short walk to all conveniences in town. Bonus: they are big animal lovers here. Definitely worth a detour!

The service is good enough, the dishes are pretty well, the Flora and fauna are really enjoyed. This hotel is cool for someone who wants to enjoy the nature and have a time in silence and calm, far to the city.
