“Lovely hotel but lumpy, soft beds.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This hotel was lovely. It is located at the foot of the volcano but unfortunately we were unable to see the volcano due to poor weather. The grounds are truly beautiful and there are individual cabins with a nice porch and a deck in the back with a table and chairs (not screened) . Rooms have flat screen televisions but no hair dryers or shampoos are provided. There was a king and queen size bed in each room and simple but nice furnishings and a wood floor. The bathroom was large with a toilet, bidet and shower with a decorative shower door. You cannot flush toilet paper in the toilet but must deposit paper in a pail by the toilet. Room service would place a toilet paper bow on the toilet each day and also tissue paper flowers on the tissue box. It was a very pretty touch. Like most hotels in Costa Rica, expect some bugs in the room so bring bug repellant. The hotel had a reasonably priced, attractive bar and there were two computers for guests to use near the reception desk. Meals were served buffet style and I found them to be good. There was a choice of two entrees, veggies, starches, salad, two dessert, beverages and a pasta station. The hotel is well located with the town a short taxi ride away and a nearby hot springs which I really enjoyed. I believe zip lining is available as well but we were on a tour and didn't have much free time.
The only negative about this property was the soft, lumpy beds. They were extremely uncomfortable.

Excellent room and good staff. The room was unique and to have a view of arsenal volcano from the porch was awesome. We took to the cab to la fortuna to have diner. Breakfast and lunch was good and had a decent selection for vegetarians.

The hotel is located right at the base of Arenal Volcano and is the closest large hotel to the city of La Fortuna. It takes about $6 to get to the city in a taxi. The cottages are spacious and well maintained. However they are lacking in some essentials - hair dryer and iron+ironing board. And I mean it when I say essentials. It rained almost all the time while we were here. And we could not find a way to dry our hair, clothes and coats. There were only 2 hair dryers at the front desk and they were never available. The hotel could not turnaround laundry less than 24 hours. I guess we could have packed more swimsuits and lots of spare clothing, but we like to travel light. But we were not the only ones with this dilemma.

The food was average - breakfast or dinner buffet. The folks at front desk were somewhat indifferent to guest requests. They didn't seem to be making any attempts to help us out with problems - either a tour inquiry or requests for one of the 2 hair dryers on the property. The restaurant staff could have been more courteous - might have been the sheer number of guests during the time.

We spent 3 nights at las lomas del volcan and after almost 2 weeks in Costa Rica we think it was one of the best places we stayed in. The bungalows are very spacious and of prime quality, beds are super comfy, views spectacular. No noises other than from the nature around, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who comes to Costa Rica.

We stayed there for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The views of the volcano was great (when we the fog lifted) and we had an individual bungalow. Robert was a great help in discussing and commenting on activities in the area. The breakfasts were great and on our last day (when the sun was finally shining), we discovered the pool area and jacuzzi. The hotel is a 5 minute drive from the center of town and part of the road is unpaved when entering the property. Will go back in the future.

Really enjoyed our stay. Rooms are individual and well appointed bungalows. Lovely ground to walk round with views of Arenal and surrounding countryside. Good restaurant - all meals buffet style with plenty of choice. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: All rooms seem equally good.

The hotel is located in the road hat runs around La Fortuna, but the access is made by way of a unpaved road. The rooms are simply decorated and the bathroom was good. The breakfast was too simple with few kind fo bread and options.

Room Tip: Ask for a room whose varanda make possbile to watch Arenal Volcano. Do not count on this hotel in...
