“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

This is a great place to stay, with beautiful gardens, birds to watch, a helpful staff and a good restaurant. It also has a view to the volcano. Highly recommended.

We loved our stay at Arenal Volcano Inn. We showed up without reservations and they were sold out of their regular rooms and the front desk was kind enough to work with us and we were able to stay for a few nights in their junior suite! The ladies at the desk were amazing and the many breakfast options in the morning left us full for most of the day! The location was a great starting point for all of our activities we did while in Arenal! Great views - must stay here if you are visiting Arenal!

Room Tip: Our junior suite was a great surprise on our trip. We loved the kitchen available and the comfortabl...

We were very pleased with the Arenal Volcano Inn. The front desk and restaurant staff were helpful and courteous at all times. Our cabin was well appointed, very roomy and clean. The kitchen nook with fridge and coffee maker were an added bonus. The bathroom was quite trendy. It was pleasant to sit out on our front terrace and view the volcano. The grounds were very pretty. I couldn't stop taking pictures of all the flowers. The pool area is small but seems to accommodate whoever wants to go.
We had several meals at the restaurant and all were good, the breakfast buffet offered a good variety of choices.
The only thing that threw me off was having a yellow band placed on my wrist to indicate, I believe, that breakfast was included in our rate. I took it off after a day, and it didn't seem to cause a problem.

We stayed two nights at this establishment and were very satisfied. The staff were affable, herlpful and spoke good English. The grounds were well planted and there is a small nature trail around the rear and side of the complex. Plenty of Birdlife, including Hummingbirds. The detached Deluxe units are preferable due to their size and faclilities. Good Coffee Maker and bathrooms, super views of Arenal Volcano, seating outside in a small terrace. Clean, well maintained. Difficult to find any faults. We dined in the reastaurant for evening meals and breakfast. Not an extensive menu, which is Italian orientated, with the usual Pasta/Pizza choices but the quality is wonderful. Good hot and cold selections at breakfast with attentive waiters. Excellent Coffee, but this is a fact throughout Costa Rica.

The location is not ideal for visits to the town, which is several Kilometers away, but theer are a number of local attractions nearby. Staff will arrange taxis or trips.

Room Tip: Choose the detached deluxe bungalows, you will not regret it.

The accommodation is spread about the grounds which are well laid out with a lot of very attractive flowering plants. The rooms are well equipped, we had a fridge and coffee maker, as well as a safe and the usual things. Food and service in the restaurant was good, they do a good range of pizzas which are huge! We enjoyed the choice at breakfast. There were two not such good things - wifi was not working at all for the first day we were there and when it came back it's only available in reception and is not brilliant speed; secondly our room was the furthest from reception and there was no access by car so it was a bit of a trek with the luggage. Having said that we enjoyed staying there, lots of birds in the garden and a good view of Arenal Volcano when the cloud lifted.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage ask for a room closer to reception

We had a lovely 3-day / 2-night stay here. The staff is courteous and helpful; rooms are comfortable; restaurant has good food and nice service. Our visit was quiet and peaceful and a relaxing way to end a 14-day adventure-filled trip.
