Hotel Villas Vista Arenal is a charming set of cottages located about 5 minutes away from the town of La Fortuna. The signboard is easily missable so you have to pay attention while driving. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. Showers are good, but the cleanliness of the bathrooms is OK. Great views of the Arenal volcano from the property....

Room size was good. Room was not checked before we checked in. Shower was dirty with lizard poo,drain clogged with hair, and no hot water. Bedding needs to be updated with new pillows and adding mattress covers. Views of volcano were great.

Little bungalows that have the requirements, hot water, refrigerator, T.V., Wi-Fi. It is at the edge of La Fortuna (a tourist trap) but easily accessible. The town is user friendly. Breakfast was good. The volcano was cloud enshrouded during the stay except for one magical moment in the morning.

The furniture is sparse and the beds just adequate. The view...

We stayed 3 nights at the Villas Vista Arenal and really enjoyed out visit. The cabins are kept clean and have air conditioning- which is nice. The pool with a view of the volcano was a nice amenity to enjoy. Breakfast is included, with 3 choices (which is very typical as most hostels)- Tipico, Americano or Continental. Loved the pineapple...

Pros: The cabins were clean, beautiful surroundings, birds, hummingbirds passing by when you sit on your porch Great views of the volcano...you can actually see the Arenal Volcano from some of the cabins. They offer laundry service. Great location if you want to walk to the town of Santa Elena. We did, for the New Year's Eve celebration in the...
