Reviewed January 5, 2014

This is a quiet, peaceful location to unwind at. The cabins are great. We of course did some day trips and spent one whole day just relaxing and exploring the expansive grounds, pool and a hike through a small cow pasture into the jungle where we saw exotic birds and found poison dart frogs and lizards. They have a trail map at the front desk, it is a loop so you cant get lost, the trail is on the rugged side.

The breakfast buffet was typical of most of the resorts, the service was excellent and Pablo at the bar made some good tropical drinks during happy hour.

The cabin was good sized for the three of us. The bathroom was nice, the shower was huge!
Housekeeping did a fine job keeping up the cabin.
The location proved to be a great viewing spot for the Arenal Volcano, mostly shrouded in clouds or mist during our stay. The resort is far enough away from the closest town, La Fortuna, to make a taxi the only sensible mode of transport to town, unless you can talk your tour guide into making a quick stop at the super market on the way back to the hotel.

We would stay here again for sure!

Room Tip: We stayed in the 500 series of cabins, which face the volcano and afford pretty clear views of the s...

Dear people.

Any time in the future that that you wish to come back let us tell you we will be here with our arms wide open for you, your family and your friends.
Thank you very much for this great review regarding your stay in our mountain lodge.
We are glad that you used our facilities in full, even going to the woods where we have a walking trail for our guets.
One tip for your next trip is about the Arenal Volcano, on september and october we are in the rainy season but it rains very heavy for short times and after the rain the volcano gets very clear with no clouds around. Also, the rates for lodging and availability are much accessible to anyone.

We hope you are thinking to plan your next trip to Arenal right now and please, don´t forget that we will be here waiting for you for another exceptional experience in our facilities.

Warm reagrds.

The views of Arenal from here are just fantastic. Even at breakfast you can sit and look at the cloud shift across the summit. You are in your own little chalet which has really high wooden ceilings and the biggest shower recess I've ever seen. A great spot!

Dear people.

We really thank you for taking the time to write a few lines about our your stay at our lodge. What we don't understand is why if we don´t see any negative impression you have rated us with only 4 leves in all the topics?? If there is something that we can do to make this score be better let us know, or if during your stay here in there was something negative we need that you tell us due this is the only way for us to improve our service and facilities.

Regards from Lomas del Volcan.

This hotel sits right at the base of Arenal volcano. It's a fairly perfect location, though there are probably quite a few perfectly located hotels in the area. The cabins are unique, and make for a special stay. The landscaping is impeccable. If you plan to zipline with Ecoglide, Lomas is only 5 minutes away. The town of Fortuna is less than 10 minutes. The only negative is the fairly long unpaved driveway...it made returning to the hotel fairly uncomfortable, but that only lasted about 2 minutes.

Dear Viraj.

Thank you for placing your impression about our lodge. We happily tell you that we are improving the access road to our lodge putting the concrete bricks until we reach to the lake ( This was the worst part of the access). Now, our location is simply one of the best and we agree with you, we are not the only one, other places around have great location due the whole area of Arenal is simply beatiful.

We hope the next time you come to visit us we have finish the access road improvement.

Warm regards.

The grounds are beautiful, the views stunning, and everyone who works there was very kind and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and flavorful. Highly recommended! We stayed at four places in Costa Rica, and this was by far our favorite. I have no idea why anyone would stay elsewhere in La Fortuna.

Dear people.

Your comment gets right to the point: why to stay at another place if Lomas del Volcan exists? We appreciate very much your time and your positive reviews and hope to see you many more times in our lodge. This kind of reviews work as a motivation to keep doing things as best as possible.

Imagine being right at the base of a volcano with spectacular grounds and sleeping in an incredibly large individual well-appointed bungalow with two porches that's rustic enough to feel appropriate for the natural surroundings but well appointed enough to feel spoiled (it even has a bidet). This place is more beautiful and inspiring than any of the photos of it can show. Just go for the peace and connection with nature. Enjoy it's caring staff and wonderful food. No spa. No gym. No problem. I'd go back in a heartbeat and stay for longer.

Each room is a separate bungalow with a porch on the front & the back-great views of the volcano! Rooms are spacious enough with a large bathroom. The hotel is more secluded than many of the other area hotels, which we enjoyed. The pool is nice. We ordered lunch, which was brought out to us at the pool. Breakfast was included;plenty of good food to start your day off. We went to one of the larger hot spring resorts as part of a tour. We enjoyed our time there, but felt like we were at Disney. We were happy to return to our little bungalow.Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Hi Jill.

Thanks for your good impression about our resort. We are confused about the rating you gave us but we know you have enjoyed more than you rated us. We try to improve our service day by day by treating each issue and negative comment separately and in your case we would like to know if there was some thing that you consider was not good at all, this gives us the opportunity to change, improve or eliminate off the service available at our lodge. Please, provide us with more information regarding your stay at Lomas del Volcan and we will do our job here.

Warm regards and remember we will be here with arms wide open waiting for you.

Lomas del Volcan was the perfect choice for our family vacation. We were three adults,including me,the 77 year old grandma, one teen-ager and three 11 year olds. Everyone loved the hotel and the activities available. Each family had its own "villa", a large bedroom,bath and two verandas,one of which was nestled just below the volcano. You can hike through the rain forest on the hotel's trail, swim in their pool,enjoy a huge,delicious buffet breakfast (included).

Not too far away, we went zip-lining and soaked in the hot springs.

Staff is warm and friendly,especially good with the kids. 14-year old Trevor is now known forever as "Senor Guapo."
