We stayed at Hotel Bijagua for 3 nights in late January 2014 and we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. We just wish it had been longer! The price was very reasonable for a nice clean room, a beautiful pool, well maintained grounds, and a great location. There is a little kitchenette off the pool deck, where we could make coffee in the morning--a must for my boyfriend. We loved the ability to walk into town easily for meals. It's about a mile or so, which was flat and with a paved sidewalk most of the way. There are also 2 restaurants directly opposite the hotel and a grocery store next store. The only complaint (and it is minor) was the roosters and a barking dog who woke us up a few times. Hotel Bijagua provides ear plugs, but we found that putting a pillow over our heads was more effective. We had a rental car and drove to various locations in the area--La Fortuna waterfall, Arenal Observatory Lodge, and Nuevo Arenal--which were all easily accessible from Hotel Bijagua. Our hosts--David and George--were just delightful and helped us with directions, advice, and stories about the area. My boyfriend was particularly taken with the large pieces of petrified wood around the property and had a great conversation with George about where they had come from. On our last day, we were lucky enough to awaken to a clear sky and an unobstructed view (no clouds!) of Arenal. We quickly got our cameras and ran outside, where David was already taking pictures. Together we all got some great shots. In summary, we can't recommend Hotel Bijagua highly enough.
