I just want to share my beautiful experience with Villa Vilma such a wonderful place to stay with an astonished view and garden! I spent every morning listenening the bird singing on my balcony and getting goose bump just by looking the view and the garden! I saw more bird in this garden that at the park in Costa rica! The owner are so kind and sweet and if you have been travelling for a while ther ethey are close to a laundry so you can do your laundry and do shopping at the market.
It was one of my favorite place in Costa rica
I will definitley come back because the value of the place was great! I did book a tour with them about a park close to Nicaragua but waist of time and money so dont book it but overwise great ,great ,great..
Tres belle endroit et propietaire tres sympa ,la vue et le jardin est fabuleux ..Un bonheur d etre rester dans ce petit paradis.Ecouter les oiseaux et admirer la vue .Un vrai bonheur

Room Tip: book the room at the end not close to the road can be noisy in morning

bright & cherry bungalows,very clean,comfortable.the grounds are very pretty with their gardens and pool,(with large jacuzzi) It was nice to be able to sit outside your room on the covered patio and look at the view of arenal volcanoe, Happened to be a cloudless morning so was able to see the top of the volcanoe---AMAZING! The young man (filan) at the desk was very helpful, I happened to fall in love with one of the dogs that ran around on the property,, would stay here again, also a lovely cafe down the street connected to an italian looking restaurant with beautiful hanging vines on it. Cool town, lot's to do.

We stayed here one night with our family of four. The cabins are picturesque and the grounds are very well manicured. There is a nice pool and jacuzzi. The hotel provides pool towels for $2 a piece which I think is overly priced. Pool towels should be included The room had a full size bed and two twin beds. The shower was spacious and the water was warm. There was soap but not shampoo and conditioner provided. There was no hair dryer. The bathroom did have a not very pleasant smell but we assume is sulfur. We are at the foot of the volcano. The room has a nice porch with a view of the volcano. There is a comfortable set of chairs and coffee table on the porch. Our family enjoyed sitting there to chat and enjoy the view. The room has a refrigerator and a long counter with a sink. We did have to go back to the reception to get the right amount of towels and the remote for the air condition. The mattresses are not necessarily high quality and the pillows are old and lumpy. I think the lighting of the room could be improved. It is good during the day because of the two big windows, but it's rather dim at night. However, this was a wonderful place to stay and the price was right for a low budget. We paid $75 total which is rare in this town. It is a touristy place and everything is overly priced. The hotel is close to downtown if you have a car. Activities are arranged at the reception for you if desired. They have a wide range of activities to offer. They are all about $80 per person. Overall it is an excellent place of you are just looking for a nice place to spend a day by the Arenal Volcano.

Thank you so much for your comment!
Unfortunately there was a misunderstanding about the situation with the towels, we are very sorry about it, we don´t make any charge for the towels or any service besides the room rate and breakfast.
We would like to get in contact with you in order to eventually make a return for any extra charge you paid.
Your comment is very important for us! thank you for staying at Villas Vilma

This is my second stay in less than four months and this stay was even nicer than the first. The buildings have been repainted a pallet of brilliant colors, with up grades to the TV's lights. Still a very good place to stay when in La Fortuna.

Room Tip: Rooms 69 & 70 have the best view of the volcano and are farthest from the road.

We stayed here 3 nights, December 29-January 1. The grounds are gorgeous. The room is simple and the bed wasn't the best but you really can't beat the value. The breakfast coupon they offered for the place across the street was also a great deal. Very good breakfast and a generous portion.
