My boyfriend and I stayed int his resort overnight. We really didnt get to see much, but the little time that we stayed we experienced a great staff that helped us save money with tours and helped us out with directions. The hotels does have a great view of the Arenal Volcano.

Baldi is right around the corner and nicer...

This was our fourth visit to Costa Rica and our second to the La Fortuna area; over the last few years, the selection of accommodations has grown considerable. One can find everything from bargain-priced backpacker accommodations in town (cheap, but a long way from the volcano) to fancy resorts at the base of the volcano (great views, but usually pricey)....

From our cabins we could see the Arenal Volcano, and at night we can see lava coming from the mouth of the volcano!! The lava flowing down the volcano and the light from the heat was awesome to witness! Our cabin was...

Business partners Gene and Larry have created a fine experience on the outskirts of La Fortuna at the Palo Verde Resort. What an INCREDIBLE view of the volcano! We stayed in cabinas #5 & 6. You can lay in your bed in your cabina and watch the volcano spew rocks nightly. The vegetation and bird life at this resort are...

I've travelled around the world. I've stayed in many exotic resorts and have been spoiled by the best of the best. However my need to try new things prevents me from staying in the same place twice.

This resort has incredible views of the Volcano, and has assembled a group of people that will make you feel at home. This is a great place to just relax or to do all the adventures that costa rica has to offer.
