“Superb Value, Nice Staff, Great Views of Arenal!”
Reviewed June 15, 2007

First a note: this is a budget hotel - we had probably the best room in the place and it was $35 (in high season).

That said, this place was great. The rooms are fairly plain but clean and the staff was friendly, helpful, and laid back.

The best part about the place, aside from the value, is the views of Arenal. Ask for Room 27 or Room 33 - both of these rooms have balconies that have views of Arenal, and at night you can see the lava flows (assuming that you're there the 5% of the time it's NOT cloudy).

If you can't get either of those two rooms, then I think the place is probably more or less a non-descript but good value.

Try to email them early, as those two rooms are often booked far in advance especially during high season.

Reviewed January 13, 2007

My husband and I stayed here one night and we really enjoyed staying in this hotel. Make sure, if you stay here, that you request the room on the 3rd floor with the balcony facing the volcano. That's the room we stayed in. The other rooms, from what I hear, are pretty boring without the view.
This hotel had computers so guests can get on the internet...but it costs a little bit. We also got a coupon for a free breakfast in the cafe next door, which was very delicious, even if the fare was simple.
Our rental car was safe parked in front of the hotel and there was a guard posted 24/7 which was great.
Overall, this was a great place to stay for a view of the volcano and a comfortable bed.

  • Tips/Secrets — get the room with the balcony on the 3rd floor for the best view!
