Agua Inn is simply the best place you could stay in Nuevo Arenal! The hotel features a river going around the building and its sound is the most relaxing thing ever. Breakfast is also lovely and the owners are really nice and up for a chat in case u need tips 😊 We are definitely coming back! Terry&Keith

Agua Inn is a secluded retreat located right next to a rushing river. The owner is an expat from California who was welcoming, friendly, and helpful while offering space and privacy. The breakfast was delicious and filling while accommodating our vegan diet. The fact that we are a queer couple posed no issue at all. Note: when driving from La...

Beautiful spot next to a rushing me creek. Peaceful sleep in a comfortable bed to the sound of the creek. Delicious breakfast on balcony overlooking garden and creeks. All and all a nice stay for one night.

The host was very friendly and offered a great option for dinner. Sleeping accommodation was very nice, you could hear the flowing river nearby. Bathroom wash very nice as well, with hot water and...

Had an extra night on the way to La Fortuna, wasn't expecting much here, but, was pleasantly surprised by Aqua Inn. Coming from Canas, take a right downhill after the Inn sign. More visible is the sign for the owner's architecture business...our gps told us to go right past the turnoff...so, keep a sharp eye. We were met at the...

It was a quiet quaint little hotel with the most amazing staff! Israel was our host and I don't think I've met a nicer person. He helped us find local places to eat as well as waking up earlier to accommodate for our early adventure times. The woman who helps makes breakfast every morning is very sweet as well. It...

Agua Inn was a location out of the way, quiet and perfect for what we were looking for. Rooms were very clean, included great breakfasts, and had shared common rooms to relax in. Javier was welcoming and very helpful when needing information about restaurants and sights. Staying here gave us the chance to see the Arenal area, do some ziplining...
