5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Well maintained resort at th foot of Arenal. Sepeate large cabins were spotless, the pool large and inviting, the restaurant very nice. Breakfast buffet was substantial. A beautiful resort!
The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly when possed with typical tourist type questions.

Lomas del Volcan consists of a main lodge and a series of well appointed cabins connected by roads and walkways. The main lodge houses registration, dining room, and bar. A very nice pool is located near here. Each cabin has private bath, two king-sized beds, air-conditioning, tv, and telephone. The shower is huge, but there is a chronic problem with running out of hot water in the morning. I would advise showering at night before bed. The grounds and spectacular view of Arenal Volcano are the main selling points beyond the rooms. Many birds call the grounds home. The only negative I experienced was the mile-plus primitive road that you have to navigate in order to reach the lodge.

Room Tip: All of the rooms had views of the volcano from either the front or rear of the cabin.

We loved our stay at Lomas del Volcan. Your backyard is literally the Arenal volcano! Great service, wonderful food, although the drinks were very pricey compared to other similar places that we stayed. The private bungalow that we had was perfect. Filled with all the necessary amenities. Nice pool and hot tub with amazing views of the volcano. The pool was too cold though! The hotel is located a short drive from the town of La Fortuna ($6 one way in cab) So you are very close to town but feel like you are a world away when you are on the property. Overall wonderful experience and recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing stay near Arenal.
Pura Vida,

I had the opportunity to go to one of the best hotels in La Fortuna de San Carlos, great service, a wonderful view, excellent food, well appointed, comfortable, private and relaxing
with beautiful green areas near the Arenal Volcano National Park.

Pros--The hotel is right by Arenal volcano. The rooms are nice as is the pool area.The staff was pleasant and helpful. Free internet and good free wifi. The included breakfast was good.
Cons-The entry road is long and partially unpaved. The buffet dinner was just ok.

We were here for 2 nights as part of our Caravan tour. There were bugs in the room because the bathroom windows with no screens were open when we entered our cabin. We closed them and had fun killing the ants which were huge. They were just a bother.

We turned the AC on and made sure the windows were not open during the rest of our stay.

The hot water situation was in my opinion very dangerous. When taking a shower the hot water would come and go. When it was on it was VERY HOT it seemed to shut off before our shower ended. Then it would come back on. Maybe there was some sort of automatic switch that turned it off and on again.

The beds were not that comfortable but we slept ok.

The pasta bar at dinner was great. Breakfast was average.

The internet was pretty reliable.

We were not lucky enough to see the top of the volcano as it was shrouded with clouds during our entire stay.

We were thrilled to find that we had been booked into the cutest cabin with a view of the volcano right from our sitting porch. The cabin was clean, spacious and welcoming. All warm wood and tile floors. Charming. The bathroom was huge with bidet and toilet and a large shower. We loved sitting on our porch just looking at the volcano - even tho we never saw the top, watching the mist form around the peak is entertainment in itself. There was a closet area with a safe and shelves.
The breakfast was outstanding. We ate dinner in the restaurant one night when they had a buffet and it was also very good. The jacuzzi and pool were easy to get to and clean. We loved our stay at this resort and hated to leave.
One funny feature is the long, dirt road that you have to take to get to the hotel. But it is worth the drive up.
Lots of birds to see in the trees, and in the morning we saw the caballero on horseback driving his cows across the ravine between the resort and the mountain.
It is any easy drive into La Fortuna and easy to get to the volcano warmed hot springs.
The staff was very helpful and friendly - made phone calls for us and helped us arrange tours, etc.
We highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: All the cabins look inviting. We were glad to have one up the hill (512) that had a porch that faced...
