Agua Inn
Ranked #4 of 13 Nuevo Arenal B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 26, 2010

Have dinner at the Gingerbread House down the street and drive down to the magical Aqua Inn where you will be greeted with sounds of the rushing river, croaking frogs, and chirping birds. We stayed at Tabacon for a night and that was luxury, but Agua Inn has a special warmth about it that makes you understand why people extend their stay in Costa Rica. Trent, the owner, is a generous and big hearted host who will immediately make you feel like part of the community. Arenal is a small sleepy mountain town, but it's the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate, and be inspired by your surroundings. Rooms are simple but warm, clean, and cozy. Have your morning coffee and fruit on the deck overlooking the forest, swim in the rock pool under the trees, and watch the river otters come out to play. Couldn't recommend this place more if you make it to Arenal.

If you are looking for a completely unique experience, in an unbelievably beautiful setting, with a family away from home, you would want to stay at the Agua Inn. The rooms are impeccably clean, with fresh linen and pillows galore! The house is nestled within the jungle, with nature on constant show; whether you are relaxing on your balcony reading a book or drinking coffee on the deck or swimming in the salt water pool. This is the exact place to relax, unwind and stay clear of the crowds, in a setting that is immediately familiar and a "family" that is welcoming, gracious, respectful and kind beyond belief...a million 'thank you's!

We were in Agua inn 5 days en 4 nights. The owner is a warm & enthousiastic man. He made us feel like we were at home. He gave us a warm welcome in his hotel, which is in a beautiful lush/ jungle garden next to a river (the river runs through the garden). The rooms are spacious/ clean and ours had the best shower in the world. The owner rebuilt and decorated the place by himself together with his brother. If we go back to Costa Rica we defenitly go back to Agua inn. By the way, there is a pool as well.
There is enough to explore in this area.
