Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great experience! The little houses are clean and cozy, the breakfast is amazing and the barkeeper was a charm. Can only recommend! But it’s an hour walk away from the Center if La Fortuna so it is good to have a car.

Amazing resort and amenities are perfect. Rooms were comfortable with great views of Arenal. The hotel is surrounded by lots of natural beauty. Above all, the staff were amazing from check in to restaurants and housekeeping. Special shout out to Andres for helping us at dinner and lunch throughout our time. Many thanks to Mercedes for keeping our room neat and welcoming.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lomas del Volcan. The view from the back patio - of I guess almost every bungalow - was stunning. To wake up and look out at the volcano was just incredible! The bathroom & shower was huge!! Loved that! The rooms were clean, had a little front porch, and being that they are bungalow styles, they feel quite private. The food at the bar/restaurant was consistently amazing and we tried quite a variety. This may sound crazy - but the hamburger & pizza were INSANELY DELICIOUS. And yes, we thought it was weird to even order that on our first day in Costa Rica - but they were THAT good!!! The buffet breakfast was also good, lots of variety, no complaints at all. The whole place is clean, gorgeous, just lovely. And the spa is AMAZING! It is actually open to the outside and our couples spa (my husband's first) was just perfection. There was some rain while we were there and it just made the whole experience even more special! We loved the location and we don't really go back to many hotels/locations - but this one is high on our return list, there is so much to do in this area of the country and you can have as much relaxation and/or adventure you could possibly want. We do highly recommend the Lomas del Volcan.

The bungalows were beautiful and clean, with fantastic woodwork. Many of the backporches have a view of the volcano. The main restuarant was priced similar to a west coast restuarant, but the food is amazing. It appears most of the ingredients are locally acquired and fresh! The bar restuarant next to the open air lobby, is priced like the average American restuarant. The food was amazing. The bartender Alex was fantastic! The drinks with a lot of alcohol were so well balanced! Very delicious! Julien, apart of the waitstaff was fantastic, very funny, and charismatic! Honestly, all the staff were very kind and helpful. Roberto who is incharge of the tours was amazing, we told him what we were looking for and our budget and he took care of the rest. The tours were vetted by the hotel, all tour guides were fantastic and knowledgeable, all the tours were safe and fun! We wished we had booked more days! We will come again for sure!

Beautiful property. Beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. My only complaint is the breakfast dining. The continental breakfast that is out in the open consistently had flies flying around the fruit and bakery items. The dining room is humid because the enormous windows are open to some extent. We understand this is a tropical environment, but why not place netted coverings over the food so people dont have to have a side of fruitfly with their breakfast.

My wife and I visited this hotel in September and absolutely loved it. Everyone gets their own bungalow with a volcano view and a garden view. 2 decks with furniture! Rooms are huge, very clean, great beds. Bathroom you could have a dance in. Modernized throughout. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Birds galore. A black and white owl would entertain us on our walk back to the Bangalow at night. Hummingbird's everywhere. The free breakfast was excellent. Your choice of eggs anyway you want. Tons of fresh fruit, cereals and pastries. For dinner the dining room was excellent. Julian and the team take fantastic care of you and mix a great drink. The food was top notch. Just a great experience.

Front desk Josie is the rudest person I’ve ever seen. We drove by the reception to check in. There’s a drive-thru loading area in front of reception. Therefore we used common sense and momentarily parked our car there to drop off people. The first moment as soon as we opened our car doors and stepped out feet on the ground, Josie started yelling at us and told us no parking in front of the building. Ok, like most guests do this is the first time we ever visit this hotel. If no parking or stopping is allowed, you better have put up a warning sign or at least any forms of instructions. If you do not want your guests accidentally drive by the reception building, then do not build this misleading driveway. If your staff is not capable of doing their job in the hospitality industry, then replace them. WARNING for future guests: when you get to hotel make sure you park far far away from the reception building and use foot traffic ONLY. They do not have any instructions but I guarantee you will be reprimanded by their staff:)) I need a formal apologies from the hotel manager. But I was told by front desk that the manager does not come to work that often. Manager would not be here on Mondays or Tuesdays (which is probably a lie too). Very disappointed and it completely ruined my trip.

My daughter described this hotel as Costa Rican Center Parcs - the cabins have that sort of vibe but are way nicer. The view from the Bungalow Deluxe (ours was 514) was stunning and definitely worth the upgrade from the standard room shared by our kids, which was much darker with no view. Lomas del Vocan definitely seemed to be the better choice in the area, which is very touristy and has a low-rent Vegas vibe along the hotel strip. We stayed for three nights and that was plenty. The activities organised by the hotel were very good; we went ziplining and on a hanging bridge/waterfall tour. We also went to the Ecotermales hot springs which were fantastic; the 5-10pm slots were booked during our stay, but the hotel arranged for us to go at 6pm instead, eating dinner there first and missing the crowds. Definitely recommended. The hotel is let down, however, by the food - the restaurant is truly dire in the evening. Zero atmosphere, clueless waiting staff and terrible food - I had a caesar salad that was just lettuce and crab cakes with no discernible crab. The bar food is better but pretty unhealthy, breakfast is ok but pastries were stale every day. It's a shame as everything else about the hotel is great.
