Honeymoon help please!

We are trying to plan our honeymoon for the beginning of November. I know it is green season so I was thinking it would be best to stay near the Arenal Volcano instead of making it a beach trip. I am looking at The Peace Lodge, The Springs, and Nayara. Which of these resorts does anyone recommend for a honeymoon or should we split our time between two? Also, does anyone know if food is expensive at the restaurants? Thanks in advance!

The Peace Lodge/La Paz Waterfalls is not by Volcano Arenal. The Springs Resort & Spa, which is actually owned by the same people as La Paz, is located 3.5 km on a dirt road off the main road in La Fortuna which some people find unappealing but we like that it's "off the beaten path" and private. Arenal Nayara is a great choice too since it's been rated the "Most Romantic Hotel in Central America" by TripAdvisor and is much closer to everything in town. I can tell you that the food at the Springs, which we live 5 minutes from, is American prices so for you it won't be considered expensive. The food is VERY good here and the sushi is fantastic as well. You can't go wrong with either choice! :-)

Arenal Nayara is a great place...incredible romantic...great location...direct volcano view...close to town...and restaurants...

Springs is nice but a lot of fake rocks and fiberglass,,,as well the sister hotel Peace Lodge...also nice place...but looks like The Flinstones...and of course nice places to see great caged animals...sorry is my personal oipinion...If you like caged animals it is the best ...if it bother you be aware of it.

Ecuse my broken English I´m a proud costarican native..

the Nayara Suite in Arenal Nayara, is one of the most perfect places for a honeymoon :) with your own jacuzzi on the veranda, over looking the volcano.
