This hotel and restaurant were the perfect way to end a day of high adventure. We really enjoyed the lovely restaurant and especially the homemade desserts. Rooms are spacious, comfy beds, nice and clean. Pool and jacuzzi were great too, and of course it's always nice to have a buffet breakfast.

The view of Arenal Volcano from the cabanas and the restaurant are breathtaking. Our stay at Arenal Vocano Inn was very enjoyable. The room was clean, and the service was excellent. We weren't as impressed with the restaurant, but the food wasn't bad at all. We thought the price was a little high and found that the food in town...

This is a pretty good place to stay when visiting Arenal. all rooms enjoy a view of the volcano (when it's not obscured by clouds), and you are surrounded by beautiful gardens. My room was large, clean and comfortable. I did have an issue with the shower though (there is only a shower, no tub), skinny little shower head with...

I just traveled there with my wife for our honeymoon, and we were very pleased. The staff was very helpful, almost everyone spoke english, and the food and drink at the bar was appropriately priced. The only downside: it's not quite walking distance from La Fortuna, and the $10-15 taxi ride each way made going into town a little bit...

Very nice set io. Lots if walking within property. Each room like a little cabanas with sitting area/ patio and wonderius views or the volcano. The deluxe are higher up for nicer view but that means steeper walks. Little kitchen type area with a sink; refrigerator; counter. And mini trudge is stocked. Coffee in room is free; others for sale....
