Thank you very much for visiting Arenal Lodge. We will be waiting for your second visit. Hopefully the Volcano will be clear next time. regards.

The setting for he Lodge and the views were fantastic. The rooms were nice, but there was no restaurant on site. The breakfast was good and the staff was very nice. A very nice place to relax and enjoy the view.
