This hotel is located near La Fortuna. In the neighbourhood there are a few restaurants where you can taste local specialities (fish with fried bananas). There is a lovely swimming pool with the view of Arenal volcano (on condition that the weather is nice). Hotel consists of only a few rooms or bungalows and the breakfast is served (you can... More

I loved my bungalow style one bedroom with view of La Fortuna volcano out the front window. Coupled with friendly staff and soothing rain at night-a wonderful retreat plus a great nights sleep. Includes breakfast

We stayed here for one night, we were part of a 3 day tour that was booked through Costa Rican Trails for and that is probably why we got a group package discount. The rooms are clean, air conditioned, bathroom nice and big with BLAZING HOT water. Breakfast was also good. The view you wake up to in the morning... More

Was at La Pradera with my wife for 2 nights..we rented a private "cabaña" with views of the always beautiful Arenal volcano. The hotel is located near La Fortuna but you need some kind of transportation to get to town. Breakfast is included in the price of the rent but is very simple and small portions. ATV tours are located... More

This place was absolutely stunning. We stayed in a little bungalow with a gorgeous view of the volcano. It is also close to everything in town, a taxi ride is only about 1 american dollars into town. The staff is top notch and so helpful with anything you need. Also the breakfast is great! I would recommend this place to... More

Our stay at Hotel La Pradera was awesome! We were greeted by a couple of nice staff members who gave us good information about our stay and the town. Our room was one of the Bungalows, and was very clean, though somewhat dark (Costa Rica is very Eco-friendly, so this isn't uncommon). Pros: The bed was cozy, the sounds were... More

First, my high rating shouldn't be taken as a statement of luxury - this is a well-priced mid-level hotel. That said, it was excellent as far as service, cleanliness, amenities, and location. My family (wife & 2 boys, 14 & 16) stayed here for 4 nights and we were very impressed with the room - we stayed in a cabina,... More

Wooden cabin. Very spacious with two double beds and a full size fridge but the only storage area for clothes was strangely enough in the bathroom. Air con. Slightly dated feel to it but spectacular view of the volcano. Breakfast plentiful. Lunch and dinner is available from a decent but limited menu. Lovely and quiet. Swimming pools and hot tub

The accommodations were excellent. The rooms are modern and very nice. You have your own patio with a view of the volcano. The breakfast was amazing with so much good food. The bar was good too. It was open until 10:00(22:00)pm and and the food was pretty good too. The staff was very friendly. Definitely a good place.
