There are no words to express the gratitude we feel towards the two great people that own Miradas Arenal Hotel. Estrella and Robert welcomed us to this beautiful home-like environment that allowed us to enjoy our 10 days vacation to the fullest. Both were welcoming from day 1 and guided us to assure we spent our money wisely (by choosing the best, but must affordable experiences we wanted to accomplish in 10 days). But before I get to that point, let me start by describing the beautiful Boungalows Miradas Arenal provide tourist with. If you are a couple and you are trying to get away from your busy, hectic everyday life and therefore crave some time alone with the one you love, this is the place you have been looking for!!!! The Boungalows are beautiful well-equipped small cabins that will provide you with maximum comfort through your vacation. First of all, the view from your cabin to the Arenal Volcano is priceless. Just thinking of waking every morning and seeing this enormous Volcano from your small deck its just beautiful. Second, one of the most important things for any tourist is cleanliness where you are staying. We have absolutely no complaints when it comes down to that. Boungalows were always impeccably clean, which is a big +++++++ for us. We personally loved the huge, huge, huge, huge bed we slept in. When coming back home, we decided that we must buy something as big and as confortable. Like my partner will always say, YOU CAN SWIN ON THIS BED!!!

Breakfast was always exquisite homemade meals and the variety that was provided was really good (from typical Costa Rican breakfast to pancakes). There are no words to express the beauty of the surroundings. Everywhere you turn, banana trees, lemon trees, yucca trees, beautiful flowers, plants and palm trees which are adding touches for a perfect relaxing get away anyone. But the true +++++ of Miradas Arenal, is that the two owners Estrella and Robert are the sweetest most helpful individuals we meet in Costa Rica. They are definitely not there to try to take advantage of a tourist, try to sell you the most expensive tours in Costa Rica! To the contrary, they guide you to the most exciting and affordable but yet reliable (as far as where and what tour company) to use. Examples: Zip Lining, Horseback Riding, Volcano Walks, Hanging Bridges, Thermal Waters, White Water Rafting etc.

Again, We know this because before coming to Costa Rica, my partner and I did an intensive research about all the activities. Estrella guided us to the things that were more confortable, which fit our budget. Most importantly they told my partner and I when and where not to pay for a guide (trust me that saved us a lot a lot a lot of money) A LOT!!!!! If we were to rate our experience from a 1-10 scale, we would have to give it a 20. If you have a chance to visit Costa Rica, trust me, do it you would not regret it!!!!!!

P.S. Rent a car and a GPS, it will save you money and time.

We stayed at Miradas Arenal for 2 nights and we really hated to leave. Each cabana has a wall of windows that looks out to a magnificent view of Arenal. The grounds were beautiful and full of birds. We went hiking at Arenal but I definitely saw more birds sitting at the pool at the hotel (including tucans and parrots). The breakfast was great and Estrella was very friendly. We had such a relaxing and peaceful stay. I would love to stay here again.

This hotel is actually individual little cabanas, several of them are newer. Bathroom/showers are spacious, room was clean. The owner, Estrella, is extremely friendly and accomodating.

We'll be going back someday.

We spent just one evening at this wonderful hotel. Very close to Tabacon Hotsprings. Beautiful location with excellent view of the volcano. The grounds were lovely with incredible foliage. Owners allowed us to check in early (prior to 10am) so that we could enjoy an entire day at Tabacon Hotsprings. An awesome free breakfast was included with our stay. Owner were very polite and room was very clean. Our only regret was that we spent just one night and did not have enough time to enjoy the grounds.

Located west of the town of La Fortuna, this little spot is set back from the main road (other hotels not always) in beautiful gardens. The owners are very friendly and helpful, giving us tips of what to do, where to go. The gardens are beautiful, and we did lots of bird watching just wandering around the garden, and particularly at the swimming pool.

The rooms are lovely, and we had an unobstructed view of the volcano from our bed - magic. The bathroom is very clean, with a large shower but no bathtub. The rooms are set far enough apart that you are never disturbed by other guests.

The breakfast was served next to the pool, and freshly made - very tasty.

Very good value for money!
