Linda Vista Hotel is located at El Castillo, just 22 km from La Fortuna downtown. A perfect choice for hikes in the Arenal Volcano National Park or activities on Lake Arenal. There is, however, a nice range of amenities located at the hotel for those that would rather stay put. Guests will enjoy lounging within the hotel's unique three-tiered swimming pool, which affords spectacular views of the volcano, and relaxing jacuzzi. The Loma Linda Restaurant serves up a nice variety of international and national meals, including a large free breakfast every morning. Guests in need of libations can visit the bar, which is stocked with beers, wines, juices, liquors and more. The rooms at Linda Vista are clean and spacious. Tile floors extend to private terraces, where guests can sit and enjoy astounding views of the Arenal Volcano. All rooms are equipped with a private hot water bathroom, ceiling fan, a/c, and coffee maker.

One of the best views in the area of both the lake & volcano, a little off the beaten track being about 30 mins drive from Fortuna although the access road is good, rooms are perfectly adequate, all that spoils the experience is the food, we revisited the hotel, liking it all bar the food & in the hope that the cooks had been educated, no such luck. The hotel you’d give 4 out of 5 to, no problems, the staff are OK, wouldn’t say great but plenty worse in Costa Rica where they haven’t necessarily caught up in all hospitality matters but the food’s still awful particularly the breakfast. (I notice a couple of suspicious looking previous reviews refuting this, take my word for it, go out for breakfast). We looked at each other in disbelief as once again the most pathetic of breakfasts was presented. Otherwise recommend the place but seemingly unlikely they will get the message, penny pinching at its worst. Add $5 to the room rate & offer a decent breakfast.
