Hotel Arenal Montechiari
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 November 2016

Hotel Arenal Montechiari is a family-owned hotel with extraordinary views of Arenal Volcano. The grounds wind around lush gardens full of butterflies and hummingbirds. Rooms are spacious and comfortable although can seem dark given the dark woodwork, but who spends much time in the room when there's so much to see outside? Each room has its own sitting area from which to appreciate the view. Wifi is in the reception area only, which is not very far from the rooms. Staff is very friendly. The owner keeps horses, which you might find going through their paces in the morning.

Room Tip: Any room has a great view of the volcano.

My husband and I spent 2 nights there in March this year.
Now we are going back with our adult children and my son's girlfriend on Nov.12 for a couple of nights again.
The cabins are really cute!-The bedroom is big and so is the bathroom!
The breakfast is included.
We saw all sorts of birds and a sloth that lives on the tree by the public washrooms!
The people working in the resort are very nice and we had a great view of the volcano!
I also enjoyed the swimming pool and the grounds!
You can walk downtown even though if it is in the evening I think you should either drive or call a taxi.
I can't wait to get back there to see my friend the sloth!-LOL!

I truly enjoyed my stay at Montechiari- great view of volcano, friendly service- especially the office lady- who really made it easier and more pleasant. 10 mins walk to La Fortuna town. I DO recommend.

The rooms were pretty dark, so you constantly have the feeling to put the lights on.
The lodge was oké, not special.
It was very cloudy, so we couldn't see the Arenal.
Probably this lodge is much nicer with a good view to the Arenal, maybe?
Without the view on the Arenal, this lodge wasn't special.

It was located close to the centre La Fortuna, that was nice.
Breakfast was oké, not special either.

So, it was oké. Not more or less.

I gave 5 stars for experience, setting, good warm food, locality, convenience, and overall. Staff tries to serve best they can, breakfast was good and fresh, nothing fancy but simple local food plus eggs. During my stay, it rained day and night, and we experienced rain-forest type rain, bit noisy at night but part of experience. Rooms are basic so don't compare with Marriott,

Room Tip: love nature, never been to one like this before.
