This great little find is a short distance from Arenal but feel totally remote. We stayed in the furthest bungalow overlooking the gardens with view over the volcano in the distance. If you're here for the wild life then this place is a gold mine....birdlife is in abundance. Fortuna is approx 2 km away but we found the town to...

This was our first hotel/hostel for our holiday and after 10 weeks of travelling remains one of our favourites. German made us feel right at home and went out of his way to cater to our individual needs- took my son horseriding, brought me extra fruit in the morning etc. He was extremely helpful in organising trips and providing onward...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Arenal Green (it was supposed to be 4 but we had airline issues on the way down) at the start of our Costa Rican adventure. German (our host) was incrediblly helpful and understanding during the initial booking via email, the panicked change in our arrival day and arranging airport pick ups. We...

I stayed here almost a year ago and my memories are still quite fond of this place. It's nestled away from the main street so it's quieter and on a clear day, offers a fantastic view of the volcano. We were given the larger bungalow in the back which offered 2 hammocks which we used everyday during our stay. The...

This was our favorite place we stayed in all of Costa Rica. Herman and his daughter Monica who run the place are so friendly and helpful and want to make your stay excellent. The "villa" we stayed in the first night was perfect for our family of 6 (my wife and I, our 3 kids and grandmother). It had a...

I booked a stay at Arenal Green for my husband and I, partly based on the great Trip Advisor reviews. We really enjoyed our stay and want to give a shout out to Monica, who was so helpful to us when we were there. Arenal Green is not in the heart of La Fortuna, so get used to a 15-20...

This is a true Latin American experience. Genuine hospitality, everybody from the owner to his daughter Monica, was so warm, hospitable and responsive to our needs. Our cabin was humbly decorated but perfectly clean with a wonderfully designed outdoor kitchen/bar area with 2 hammocks. It was right next to a small stream which we'd listen to in the evenings while...

We had an absolutely delightful experience staying at Arenal Green. The entire process from reservation to airport pickup till the end of our stay had run smoothly. This is our first experience staying at a family-owned lodge instead of a chain hotel. We didn't regret a bit. The owner German stays on site and made every effort to take care...
