We can't say enough about how wonderful Lomas Del Volcan is! We spent 5 days there and loved it. Lomas Del Volcan is an absolutely beautiful resort. Our cabin (404) backed onto a forested area and is close to the pool,hot tub, front desk and the restaurant. Yet it is far enough away from other cabins and the facilities that we were never disturbed. We spent many hours sitting on our rear balcony enjoying watching the birds flitting through the area. There is a 1.5 km trail at the rear of the resort that runs right into the rainforest. It is uphill for about 800 metres, so it is a great hike. The grounds are impeccably cared for as are the cabins, which are clean and spacious. The water pressure is great. December, despite being identified as being part of the 'dry' season, is still quite wet so we had a lot of rain during our visit. Luckily the hot tub is covered and we enjoyed using it. The hot tub along with the pool is very well tended. Towels can be borrowed at the front desk. The staff are wonderfully accommodating, friendly and are willing to go above and beyond to help you in any way. The town is not far away and the staff at the front desk will call an official CR taxi for you. A taxi ride to town is only $6, (using the official red taxis of Costa Rica). Be sure to always tell the driver to turn the meter on when you get in, otherwise they may decide to get creative about the cost of the drive. Not far away is EcoTermales (about $8 by cab), one of the many hot springs in the area. If you want a quiet, tranquil setting, this is the spot. If you want noise and a party atmosphere go elsewhere please. The view of the volcano from the restaurant is superb. Several native fauna will visit the lawn outside the restaurant during your visit. We saw a Coati as well as several Curasow, toucans,humming birds and other small colourful birds. The restaurant serves both Tico and international cuisine, so you have a selection of meals for lunch and dinner, with the price being $12-$16 on average (steak costs more). Restaurant staff are happy to accommodate special requests i.e. bacon at breakfast when it was not normally being served as part of the buffet. While there, we celebrated a birthday and without any special request the staff and management made it a very special day.
We have no negative comments to make about this resort, it is the best choice for a stay in Arenal and you will not be disappointed. A big thank you to all the staff at Lomas Del Volcan!
