“Really worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2007

We loved staying at the Erupciones Inn. It was like home. While we were there I came down with Montezuma revenge. (nothing to do with this place) and Jessie, the owner, showed a lot of care and concern. We found the rooms large and clean. I loved the large bathroom with the only bathtub I saw in Costa Rica! The only negative is the resort above the Erupciones which leaves lots of lights on all night. Makes it hard at times to get a good view of the lava flow at night. As others stated restaurant down the road was very good and reasonable. Jesse was very helpful in making all arrangements for tours and transportation. Thanks Jessie and family!

My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights at Erupciones Inn in April 2006, in the week of Easter. The owners let us feel completely at home, they were extremely friendly and open. The room we had (# 4) was very clean, had an incredible view on the volcano and air condition.

Owners speak English & German.

La Fortuna is about 15 minutes away by car, which is ok.

The only "minus" of Erupciones Inn is breakfast: it contains scrambled eggs, toast, coffee & jam. That's it. For us it was too little, but for others it might be just right!

The owners even organized some cheese for us when we asked for it.

To make a long story short: I definitely would stay again at the Erupciones Inn.

My husband and I, along with my parents, stayed at the Erupciones in May 2006 and loved it! It is excellent value for your money - a simple breakfast, clean and large rooms with great views of the volcano as well as a very peaceful atmosphere. The owners are fabulous - friendly and helpful! We only stayed two nights so we didn't feel that we needed a vehicle. The hotel is conveniently located off the main road towards Tabacon Resort (a nice walk) but has nice and quiet grounds. Heed the advice of fellow reviewers and check this place out, in addition to the Novillo Restaurant up the road, which serves up excellent food and great views of the active volcano at night (if you're as lucky as we were!). Thanks to Jesse and her family for a memorable stay!

We enjoyed our stay at the Erupciones Inn. We had already made rafting, Cano Negro reserve tour and Tabacon Spa (a must!) plans and Jessie insisted on confirming all reservations for us. The accomodations are basic and clean with a fantastic view of the volcano. Breakfast of an egg, piece of toast and coffee was served on the owner's patio, very simple and may leave you looking for more elsewhere.

The Novila restaurant is 1/8 mile up the road and we ate there 3 or 4 times! It's an open air road side cafe with a view of the volcano as you dine. True, no atmosphere and you may question stopping in if you didn't receive a recommendation. We treated ourselves to banana flambe one evening and the employees turned off the master electricity switch to darken the whole place to serve our dessert! We thought it was yet another power outage. It was a nice touch.

Tabacon resort is 1/2 mile up the road and we walked there twice. We hopped the free shuttle service back to the Erupciones Inn.

Erupciones Inn B&B upholds the best of the B&B tradition-- when you leave you feel like you've been spending time in the home of friends.
In this case, your friends run a farm and serve breakfast on their porch. For lodging you get a room in a building separate from the main house. Rooms are basic but totally clean and include tv and, most important, your private patio with a view of the volcano (if the volcano cooperates; it did when we were there.)
There are plenty of more luxurious options around Arenal, but if we went back we'd stay with our friends at Erupciones.

Our family spent a wonderfully memorable evening at the Erupciones Inn which was a real treat since we did not have high expectations. We were the first family to use the new cottages and they were modern, extremely comfortable and well decorated. We all slept great and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The volcanoe is right out the window and the stars at night were sparkling. The owner, Jessie, could not have been nicer and we were treated to a tasty breakfast of toast, fresh eggs and milk. The cottages are located on a farm and the owner's husband led our family on a 2 hour(horse)trail ride to the base of the volcanoe. The kids loved it.
In a word, this place is charming. Also, its proximity to the town of Fortuna, the hot springs and other good restaurants is a real plus.

This place was a gem. The Costa Rican owners also run a dairy farm and each morning we were served fresh eggs and milk. They were unbelievably sweet and helped us practice our spanish in the most encouraging way. But don't worry, they were fluent in English and German!

The view was amazing and it was located just far enough from Fortuna to feel nice and quiet. They are within walking distance to the best food we ate in Costa Rica, a little restaurant with no atmosphere at all but steak and fish to die for. It was called Novila. They are also right in between the two major hot springs and a short drive away from the entrance to the park.

The cabins were clean and wonderfully private. They all have a great view of the volcano that hovers incredibly close by! I highly recommend this place. Contact them at erupcionesinn.com
