Loved the quiet rooms in immaculate gardens. The reception staff were excellent and the food in the attached restaurant was simply excellent. I particularly loved seeing all the birds eating plantain fruit from the bird table at breakfast. The nice touch of being handed a bottle of water to take onwards when we left was much appreciated?

Spent three nights here in standard room. Location is ok - on the main road from La Fortuna to Arenal but too far from La Fortuna to walk in, so a car is handy, otherwise taxi or tour bus. Check in was friendly and efficient. Standard room was spacious, clean, basic and adequate. Beds comfortable, enough storage space for clothes,...

The room was spacious, and the kitchen area in the room was really nice. The staff was great, and the dining room was wonderful. But in our room, which seemed to be one that was wheel-chair friendly, it was just about impossible to take a shower without flooding the bathroom. The shower doors didn't meet fully when closed. As a...

My boyfriend and I stayed there during my first visit to Costa Rica. The grounds are lovely and offer a view of Arenal. Unfortunately, we had very rainy weather and only saw most of the volcano on one day. However, the staff was really great. We got excellent, helpful service including the time we got to breakfast just a bit...

Our group of 6 spent 2 nights at the Arenal Volcano Inn. The bungalows are large, the beds are excellent, as are the modern bathrooms. They are set up the hill, but easy to walk, in a lovely kept garden setting. We had hummingbirds all day at a bush right next to our patio (with bench and table). There is...

Very comfortable, spacious & open rooms. We loved having a mini-kitchen area w/ a coffeemaker. The staff was very accommodating & we were even able to order a different breakfast than what was served. Unfortunately we had to shorten our stay a night, because of the impending hurricane & we wanted to make sure we could drive & still make...

I must be honest to admit that it's always difficult driving through the pouring rain at night in an unfamiliar place to find a hotel., but the driving directions posted for this hotel need serious revision. I finally used the GPS coordinates after driving past it and getting stuck in Fortuna in traffic since I was driving in from the...
