I love this place. Great value for your vacation dollar. Our cabin was kept immaculately clean. I chose Arenal Green because it reminded me of the real CR feeling from the past, built with that warm beautiful wood from the forest. The landscaping is beautiful & makes it feel your cabin is completely private. It's so quiet. Beautiful view of Mt. Arenal from the porch. Big shower with great water pressure, lots of hot water. The best "tipical" CR breakfast we had of all areas we stayed. Such flavor. I looked forward to it each morning before heading out for the day. The air conditioner worked great too. Flat screen tv with so many channels also. It's on the same road as La Fortuna water fall. The people running it are the nicest & most helpful. I would definately stay there again.

My only regret about staying here is that I stayed here for too short a time! Only 6 cottages in the property with a good amount of separation among them - designed to give everyone full privacy and comfort in a charming set-up. Insides of the cottages are nicely decorated (only closet space missing, but can be worked around) with a pretty decent sized bathroom. You can get an unobstructed view of the Mount Arenal from the room and the property. Takes about 10 min to get to downtown (if not driving, easy to call a cab that the hotel does for you) yet far away from the crowd in a serene natural setting.
Service all around was great. Loved the breakfast. The chef prepared a quick lunch for me on Day 1 before my hike - was delicious! Kayeline (spelling ?) at the front desk, who is also in the extended family of the owners, was very helpful and courteous with information, trip setups, and in general making my stay memorable. Quality of service exceeds that level of expectation when done with a great smile that I found here.
Highly recommend this place whether you're traveling solo or with a family. If you do come, don't do what I did, stay longer...:-) you'll enjoy this hidden gem. Looking forward to visiting again in the future, given that this seems to be a great base to explore a myriad of natural and adventurous options around this great place.

We stayed in the 3 bed cabin with the outdoor kitchen. It was an exceptional value! The guest service was fantastic! The front reception (who was often the owner) was extremely accommodating and helpful. He recommended and helped us book excursions and transportation. Be sure to check out the little spa while you are here, relaxing outdoor setting and great value!

We were in the largest cabin, a triple bed room that came with an outside kitchen, eating area, extra restroom and two great hammocks that looked straight at the Arenal Volcano. The service was great, it was easy to find and a quick 15 - 20 minute drive to the Arenal Volcano hike and the Thermal Hot Springs. The rooms included breakfast which was either a typical Costa Rican breakfast or the American breakfast, both were good. The small cabins looked quite cozy and romantic, we saw a few couples there and it looked great. Arenal Green included parking for our rental van. I highly recommend Arenal Green Hotel.

Room Tip: We were in the largest cabin available and it had a great view of the volcano but no wifi access. I...

This hotel was perfect and just enough off the beaten path. My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights which was just enough time to see most everything. The rooms were a bit more rustic than expected but were exactly what we needed to be in for visiting at town like La Fortuna. The property and the staff makes this place close to perfect. This family owned and run hotel is perfect for anyone. Keilyn was extremely helpful from day one when I made the reservations. Breakfast is perfect from your front pouched or the restaurant. The owner, Keilyn's uncle, even gave us a ride to his favorite restaurant, Nene's, so we didn't have to pay for a taxi.

Room Tip: Any of the higher numbers. Further from the main building and the road.

Good basic cabins with a great view of Arenal Volcano...clean and quiet. Not the howling wilderness but close to La Fortuna waterfall and town (opposit directions). Breakfast was very good and the staff is helpful. Left a very good hat in our cabin ( a Tilley and a gift), didn't discover I had left it until almost to Bijauga (Tenorio area). Daniel at Sueno Celeste B&B was kind enough to call Arenal Green on my behalf and the hat was still there. Keilyn made sure it was sent to San Isidro as we were going through there on our way north from Dominical later in our trip...worked out well. A word about La Fortuna, lots of places to stay and some excellent restaurants but it seems a little over-run with those hotels. Years ago La Fortuna was a very cool place to hang out but with the increase in tourism (a 2 edged sword if ever there was one) its lost its funkyness. Seems to be the story for a lot of Costa Rica.

What a better place to stay in Arenal than at the base of the volcano in a clean and quiet cabin with air conditioning. We had a room at the back of the property with the best view of the volcano. Every morning we awoke to it smoking at the top. Booking our trip was easy thanks to Keilyn, the front desk manager. She arranged our shuttle to the airport and our excursions to the volcano and hot springs.

The breakfast here was included and was some of the best typical breakfast that we had during our entire trip. I highly recommend that you stay here. The price is more than right and you get breakfast included in the price. It's a short walk to town or a $4 cab ride, either way, it's well worth it.

The absolute only downside was the bed, it wasn't too comfortable, but it was okay for our three night stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the volcano.
