“Awesome view”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

This hotel was perfect for our family of five. it was affordable enough to get two rooms and the grounds and rooms were kept very tidy. We had a great view of the volcano from our room. The staff was very helpful and the on-site restaurant was incredible. I would definitely stay there again.

Our family had some unusual dietary needs and logistics that the hotel and restaurant management WELL-EXCEEDED expected execution. Shout out to hotel manager CESAR, restaurant manager KAYLEEN and cook GEOFFREY. Each person mentioned above not only executed everything we asked for and more, but did so in an enthusiastic and cheerful manner.

We are exceedingly grateful for their effort and initiative on our behalf, and they clearly set the bar high in terms of service....and fresh and delicious meals.

The location facing the volcano was awesome, especially as the volcano starting smoking again upon our arrival. The grounds are pretty and our room had plenty of elbow room. Shower had water pressure, the hot tub was hot and of course, the food was scrumptious.

We were pleased with the location, as all of our daily excursions were with a 30-45 minute zone of the hotel.

And kudos to our trip planner RANDALL at Coast to Coast Adventures for recommending this property.

We stayed a few nights at the Arenal Volcano Inn and we enjoyed it immensely. The friendly staff at the reception and in the restaurant, the food as well as the room were just perfect.
Can be highly recommended!

Great view of the volcano, although it was not doing very much at the time of our visit !
Rooms were a decent size, with good quiet air conditioning. Internet at reception and free wifi throughout. Helpful and friendly reception staff. Buffet breakfast quite ample, although other meals were nothing special. Better to get taxi to La Fortuna about 10 minutes away for a good choice of restaurants. Taxis can be called by reception and are very reasonably priced.

we arrived very late due to our late arrival into san jose and they were waiting for us. the grounds of this hotel were beatiful and well cared for. the pool was very nice as well. the rooms were nice, clean and had a fridge and little kitchen area. we didnt need it because the food was great there. a bit spendy though. complimentary breakfast was great serving cereals, fruits and toast or a hot meal if desired. location was great. 5 minutes from la fortuna and 10 minutes from the hot springs. we would definitly return.

The service is exceptional at Arenal Volcano Inn -- from the front desk staff to the restaurant servers. All were friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean, with very comfortable beds, and the grounds are beautiful and quiet. Breakfast was excellent -- lots of fruit, yogurt, made-to-order eggs, etc. The location is good if you have a car -- half-way between La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano -- but not within walking distance of anyplace.
And we really appreciated the free WiFi and CNN to follow events in Egypt!
