My room, number 109 sat a top the hill of the hotel property with a picture perfect view of the Arenal Volcano.

Property is well-located: about 10 minutes to La Fortuna (closer to thermal pools) and about 15 mins to the national park. We stayed in the two room villa, which is huge, with kitchen, washer/drier, and two full bathrooms. Service was great and front desk staff were very helpful. We had a view of the volcano from our bedroom window. Pool...

Arenal Volcano Inn has an amazing view of the volcano. The staff was friendly and helpful and we were very comfortable with our stay. The beautiful flowers and landscaping was wonderful to take pictures in. We wished we were able to stay longer.

This hotel offers great standalone rooms with big windows to enjoy the nature. Dinner is great. The service team is super friendly and helpful. It's a little outside of the city and a cab is needed to get around. Breakfast is average.

Very clean and spacious rooms. WiFi coverage was good. Staff friendly and courteous. The restaurant was also very good. The bar area is a great spot to capture the beautiful view but is in serious need of upgrading the furniture as it's not very inviting as it is. Front desk staff are really helpful and the hotel is only a...
