Erupciones Inn Bed And Breakfast
Reviewed 23 April 2013

We stayed at Erupciones for one night, our last stop in Costa Rica. Erupciones is located a few kilometers away from La Fortuna going toward Arenal. There are about 12 units, each in its own building. For $65 we got a medium-sized room with two beds, a/c, cable, fridge, wi-fi and jacuzzi tub, breakfast included.

A very friendly lapdog, Cici, greeted us upon arrival. The B&B has a nice blue and orange color scheme. Our room was immaculate and while the accommodations are not super-modern, everything was in good order and well maintained. The grounds are excellent for bird-watching and the view of Arenal from our front porch was a bonus. There is a small horse farm next to the inn, which I believe the owners also run--we could see a trainer exercising one of the horses in the morning.

The host, Jessenia, was helpful in arranging a discount for a day pass at one of the nearby hot springs resorts. One of the staff members was there when we arrived and, despite that fact that she didn't speak much English, was overwhelmingly friendly and helpful. They do not take credit cards.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The rooms with a/c cost a few bucks more, but have a better view of the volcano.

Jessie the owner extremely helpful & knowlegable lady.
Our room had a great view of the volcano & the location was excelllent.
However the rooms, although very spacious, were tired & in need of moderisation (the room next to ours which we saw was the same).
Breakfast was included in the price, but was poor.
However we enjoyed our stay here as Jessie was extremely helpful & friendly and the views of the volcano were great.

The room and bathroom are spacious. The location is very quiet, therefore no noise at all, apart from the birds in the garden early in the morning which is great. Located right next to Arenal volcano close to the entrance of the National Park. Good value for money, ideal for families.

This B and B is country simple with great views of Arenal and away from all the big hotels in LaFortuna yet only 10 minutes from the national park and 10 minutes to center of Town. Great woodworking in the room and super nice farm family (minimal English speaking). Booked it online through Anywhere Costa Rica travel agency. Very private rooms that are more like mini- condos. Bring your binoculars for morning bird watching and a clear view of Arenal before the clouds roll in.

We stayed two nights during the cold front in March which deprived us of any view of the volcano. This was a haven amidst the drizzle and we really appreciated the warm hospitality, the beautiful rooms (bathroom had cathedral ceiling and jacuzzi tub), WiFi and tv. We especially appreciated the night watchman who always seemed to appear out of the fog to guide us to our cabin. The Tabacón springs were within walking distance although other amenities would need a car. This was a perfect stop over to enjoy the thermal waters.

We were recommended this B & B by some people and found reviews on tripadvisor that matched their recommendation. Jessie is quite possibly the sweetest person in all of Costa Rica. She was friendly and helpful with recommendations on the surrounding area.

The rooms were cute and very private, each with a great view of the volcano. The only downside was that the mattresses were a little hard for our liking.

Thanks for a great stay!!!

Jessenia was such a great host. She called Sky Trek and made zip-lining arrangements for us. Suggested a restaurant where we all had an amazing meal and gave us a warm breakfast in the morning. The room was clean and had a/c which was a major plus. We went to Tabacon hot springs so this b&b was just a short drive away for us to get there. Would gladly go back again.
