A collection of separate lodges, scattered across a hill top outside the little town of La Fortuna, this hotel is a a classic Central American mix of excellence marred by lack of follow through. The views of the volcano at Arenal (for which it is named,) are excellent, but best from the older lodges along the North side, and these are in need of renovation. The newer lodges on the hill top are in much nicer condition but don't have nearly the view. Wifi is present only at the lobby, or there is a computer for guest access.The spa: MARVELOUS. A huge menu of spa treatments and the services of excellent massage therapists. Possibly the finest massage I've ever had, in a therapy room open to the lush jungle while a thunder storm boomed outside.
Pros: Location near the many wonderful area attractions, the staff: unbelievably friendly and helpful, particularly Alex at the concierge desk , Randal at the reception desk and Sergio.The En Gedi Spa. On site jungle tours provided by the extremely knowledgeable Sergio.
Cons: The older lodges need some attention. The restaurant is good but some what pricy. Tech dependent people will be in withdrawal from Internet deprivation
