Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

This was our first stop on our honeymoon. We stayed two nights and had an amazing view of the volcano from our room. The room was beautiful and came with two adorable towel swans. The staff is very attentive and the manager is always looking to improve the hotel. It's nice to see someone care that much.
The restaurant can get busy with frequent visitors from tour groups coming in for lunch and dinner. The food was great with plenty of options.
Ah, yes. And hot tub. The whole pool area is so well taken care of.

My partner and I went for our anniversary from October 26th to 28th 2013, and we were very satisfied with the service and the prices. It's a great deal for nationals. We stayed at the Deluxe Room, which had a great view of the Arenal Volcano, it was very clean and well equipped, and also very private.
The Hotel's restaurant "Que Rico" offers tasty food, their specialty are pizzas, which I absolutely LOVED, specially the Volcan one. Cheap prices, very nice and friendly service by the staff. Although everything was great, cocktails I must say weren't good. You may better take a beer.
On this season there's not too many people, it has a refreshing pool area whit a nice bubbling jacuzzi which is great by night. It is also very close to different attractions and hot springs.
We definitely recommend this place and are looking forward to come back some time!

We stayed here 5 nights as part of a package and were very pleased. The staff were very friendly and we had great views of the volcano. We enjoyed the breakfast and the rain on the roof. Rooms were spacious and birds and braying donkey added a nice touch.

Room Tip: Rooms farther away from the main office had more wi fi issues.

This hotel and restaurant were the perfect way to end a day of high adventure. We really enjoyed the lovely restaurant and especially the homemade desserts. Rooms are spacious, comfy beds, nice and clean. Pool and jacuzzi were great too, and of course it's always nice to have a buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade when travelling in the green season.

The view of Arenal Volcano from the cabanas and the restaurant are breathtaking. Our stay at Arenal Vocano Inn was very enjoyable. The room was clean, and the service was excellent. We weren't as impressed with the restaurant, but the food wasn't bad at all. We thought the price was a little high and found that the food in town was better priced and much tastier. That aside, we would recommend Arenal Volcano Inn to anyone and definitely stay there again in the future.

Room Tip: The higher up (elevation) the better, we stayed in a cabana that was the highest on the hill and the...

we were booked at this inn for two nights as part of a fly and drive tour in the october low season for our honeymoon. Everyone has a little house and they are arranged in stadium style on a hill so everyone gets a view of the volcano. Upon our arrival in our room they decorated it with towel swans ad fresh flowers everywhere! The maid redecorated on the second night as well!
The staff was very friendly, though ordering food in the morning can be a bit tricky as the waiter does not speak really good english. It'part of the adventure!
The negatives are not too much. The beds are hard, the shower has pressure but terrible water-saving head, makes it difficult to rinse the soap off.
The pool and hot tub were very wel kept, though if one wants to to use the tub, you must call reception 10 minutes prior to let it time to warm up.
This area is very strong on water and energy conservation. We were put off by a sign by the toilet asking to throw outthe used TP in the can and not to flush it. I thought that was disgusting.
I gave this hotel a 5 star despite the little cons because of the excellent pricing, friendly staff and excellent location.

Room Tip: Go to Paradise Hot Springs for 23$ a day or $35 including romantic dinner in a private cabana Wear...
