Beautiful lodges with an amazing backdrop of the volcano. Rooms were spacious and clean, staff really helpful, good breakfast, nice pool area, short walk to town. The hotel gardens attract lots of wildlife too, a little piece of paradise.

We stayed at this hotel for two nites. It is excellent. Very clean grounds, very clean rooms, friendly staff. The pool is very nice --kids loved it. Good hotel for families & small groups. Breakfast included in price was simple yet very good. The best aspect of this hotel is that it is a 4 block walk to the center...

When we arrived at this hotel, the Arenal Volcano was hidden behind clouds. Fortunately, blue skies prevailed the next morning. Everyone had spectacular views of the volcano. Most took advantage of this photo opportunity. The spacious cabins are arranged in rows. While the grounds are small, there are lush gardens that attracts a variety of birds and reptiles. The grounds...

Just to balance up the earlier reviews, we stayed in Room 19, and the beds were really comfortable. I wonder if it's in the newer row of cabins that the beds are different? There is (at least currently) a selection of novels in several languages in reception which you can borrow, which is handy, and there is a washing machine...

Our room was 33 and it was very nice. Large bathroom and great bed. We had a good little frig where we could freeze water for the next days adventures. It was centrally located and an easy walk into town. Nice free breakfasts, good help in the office to plan an excursion or rent a car. We got to go...

The rooms were spacious and had air conditioning, which was much appreciated. The bathrooms were also quite spacious and had a huge shower. The hot water was touchy--it had a hard time keeping a consistent temperature, but that's not unexpected in the country. The beds were pretty hard, but that's also pretty consistent with what we've experienced across the country....

Individual bungalows set in beautiful grounds. Clean and comfortable with plenty of hanging space and shelves and a good bathroom. Not a big selection at breakfast but food was adequate and well cooked with plenty of fresh fruit. In a very quiet area but only 15 minute walk from centre so ideal location.

Room was spacious and beds were comfortable compared to the bunks we had been sleeping in. The breakfast was good and filling, coffe, juice, rice, beans, bacon, pancakes. The front desk was helpful in booking our zip-lining trip. The hot water was not working and the first night we were told that it was due to lack of sun and...
