Everything about this hotel is top class. The detached cabanas are spacious and very quiet. Staff are just excellent, helpful and very friendly. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with specimen trees and shrubs attracting a large variety of birds and butterflies. Nice swimming pool and jacuzzi too! Location is a 10 minute taxi ride from the town of La Fortuna...

The hotel staff are all very friendly and the food is good too. The bungalows are perfectly situated for the ideal view as their large front windows face the volcano. The AC was nice and cold and the shower was nice and hot. The hot tub and pool were very clean and the hot tub was nice and hot with...

Our group of 8 was extremely comfortable in The Villa rooms at Arenal Volcano Inn. It was awesome that this particular room came with a washer and dryer. We had a ton of space in the villa and loved the communal area. The grounds of the resort are beautiful with lush, tropical plants. We saw an armadillo outside our room...

I would have given the place 4.5 or 5 starts had their internet been faster. That was the only complaint I had. Don't know if the poor Internet connection had anything to do with Hurricane Otto. This place is beautiful and quiet. We stayed here for two nights. The entire hotel ground is decorated with various flowers. It has a...

Hotel is beautiful. But our room does not have any table and chair. So we end up putting all our stuff on the other bed (luckily we were assigned a two-bed room). If there is no cloud, the volcano view is fantastic. The hotel is like a garden. The breakfast was the best with many choices.

The rooms were not properly equipped. The blankets has a lot of dust and were not cleaned properly. The bathrooms did not have proper amenities. Old rooms were converted to add new amenities, but it falls short.

Our room was on the top of the hill at Arenal Volcano Inn and the view of the volcano was quite beautiful. It was kept very clean and the walk-in shower was huge. There is parking available for those of you who are renting vehicles. The restaurant (Que Rico) was nice and the pizza was great. Hotel was not far...
