My husband and I spent 4.5 days at Lomas Del Volcan and enjoyed our stay in cabin 503. The property is tucked away from the road at the foot of the Arenal Volcano. The grounds are gorgeous: lush, green, and well maintained. Lots of wildlife on the property, mainly birds and pizotes (coatis). The cabins are large, clean, and includes a safe, coffee maker, refrigerator, flat screen television and air conditioning unit. The bathroom is also large and the walk-in shower was huge. Breakfast was fantastic; pinto gallo, fried plantains, omelette station, pancakes, fruit, toast, sausage, cereal, juice, and yummy coffee con leche! We would not hesitate to stay here again!
Hints: Cab rides into town can be arranged at the front desk (average $6 to $8). If you're used to shampoo and conditioner, bring your own--hotel is pretty basic when it comes to toiletries. Hair dryers are available at the front desk. Tours can be booked through the hotel. There are no ATMs on grounds. The property is about 30 minutes walking distance into town. If you're adventurous, walking into town during the day is fine. At night is another story: pitch dark, windy roads--don't do it. The hotel doesn't have a gift shop, so if you need sunscreen, mosquito repellant, rain ponchos etc...you'll have to go into town.
Suggestions for hotel: Give the guests an option of having some type of breakfast/meal available for those who have tours scheduled before normal breakfast service. Perhaps have the bar opened past 10:00 on the weekends (Friday and Saturday). Mimosas would have been a fantastic addition to the wonderful breakfast!
