The staff checked on me and brought me some liquids to help keep me hydrated. I was very impressed with their kindness. The grounds are great. Nice pool/ hot tub. We spotted some...

We stayed at the Arenal Volcano Inn April 2014. The hotel is great. Beautiful grounds, clean, comfortable, very large room, nice pool, excellent service. The breakfast was delicious, and we ate a dinner in their restaurant which was quite good. The hotel is well located between La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano Park.

Me and a buddy grabbed this spot on the fly..no reservation. You always wonder how that will go. Very nice property, very freindly staff, good restaurant. Close to La Fortuna. Hotel staff person who was our tour guide, Roy, was fantastic. Spoke English very well, knowlegable, and friendly. So, it was all good, not mention the good room rate.

This place is amazing. I stayed in one of the individual units. It was like a small apartment set into the hills looking at the Volcano. The staff were amazing and accommodating, the room was superlative, and even the restaurant was very good. Try the pizza from a wood-fired brick oven. Just walking the grounds of this place is worth...

Centrally located 5 minutess up the hill from the little town of La Fortuna and 5 minutes down the hill from the major hot springs resorts, hanging bridge and zip line tours, plus other hiking and adventure tours; The Arenal Volcano Inn is a steal during the rainy season. I can't say what pricing is during summer but my buddy...

We had booked Las Lavas hotel through Groupon and left after one night. Luckily we had friends staying at the Volcano Inn, so we booked in there.

This hotel was recommended by Marcia, our trip planner at Anywhere Costa Rica, after our first hotel choice was unavailable. We stayed 3 nights here. I was a little nervous about it, but ended up really liking the hotel. The location was perfect, very natural setting, a view of Arenal Volcano. The hotel consists of mostly bungalows, which is great...
