We had a cabin. The cabin itself was pretty basic but clean. Room has mini fridge to keep your cervezas cold. The view was incredible. All of the cabins have porches with chairs perfect for reading or enjoying the volcano.

The pool, hot tub and bar set up was great. Two different hot tubs, one hotter than the other. Bar also served food. There was a Pool table and Foosball table set up on the deck. Good atmosphere. Bar tender was cool.

Restaurant served great cheap food. Ate there for both of our dinners because it was so good. Steak was great!

The lady at the desk had trouble pulling our reservation at first but I showed her the printed out reservation and everything was fine.

Not near the center of town, but the view is unbeatable.

We would definitely stay here again.

Had a bit of difficulty booking online without a fax machine and they would not take my credit card over the phone, but the room was available when we arrived none the less. The $65 included tax and a wonderful breakfast. The room was classy, spacious and clean and the best we had while in Costa Rica for the best price. Large shower and plenty of hot water. Comfortable beds, nice furnishings, big flatscreen TV, big mini fridge and great air conditioner. Nice restaurant with excellent drinks and food. The grounds were gorgeous, though I will say we were not pleased to see a worker spraying herbicides. The views were incredible and a wonderful array of birds and flowers. Saw our first toucans ever there! We loved the staff, each and every one of them was pleasant, helpful and friendly. Had fun playing foosball with a couple of the guys...great bartender as well! The pool area (with two huge hot tubs!) was expansive with an excellent layout and numerous options with a beautiful view of the volcano. We were happy to see they recycled there. After exploring during the day, we opted out of going into town and chose to enjoy soaking up all the hotel had to offer. We would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

This is a great hotel, wonderful rooms, great pool with two hot tubs, it is 2.5 km from downtown La Fortuna but well worth it.
One dislike was the bar tender at the pool area, he was more interested in playing pool and fooz ball than tending to his clients!

Room Tip: A perfect view from the pool of the volcano, nice pool and hot tubs. Service was just OK it is a li...

My husband and I celebrated his birthday at La Pradera. We got take out from "my coffee" and a bottle of wine and enjoyed sitting on our private porch. Breakfast is included in the dining and there is a nice buffet. A pleasure to stay in a comfortable hotel with spacious bedroom and bath.

We found this place to be extremely comfortable and affordable. From the patio of our room, we could sit and look right out onto Arenal, while from one of the hottubs, you could look onto the prairie. The room itself was large and adequate - no bells and whistles, but certainly met all our needs. The fact that breakfast was included in the price made it an even better deal. We also had dinner there one night which was also very good.

Location is also a huge plus. It is not in La Fortuna, making it a quieter place, but is only a short drive (even walk) to nearby restaurants and 2km to town. Going the other direction, the hot springs are nearby, so really, everything is very accessible. Thanks to everyone for a great stay.

Beautiful grounds, horrible bungalows. We stayed in Rm 48. Ants in the bed, bugs and spiders in our room, we had to actually ask for bug spray. They left us with a can to keep in our room. Food was just okay in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else unless you want a camping style hotel. Basically this was like camping outdoors...
