We drove up the steep hill to arrive at Linda Vista hotel and saw the incredible views surrounding this beautiful property. You have Arenal Volcano, Arenal Lake, the valleys below and the amazing foliage of the resort contributing to the beauty of this location. Although we were on excursions during the day and did not have a lot of time...

Hotel Linda Vista has a great view over the arenal lake and the arenal volcano, However is not just view what makes this place unique, The gardens are very pretty, The trail behind the property is just perfect for a short walk in the jungle. The new rooms has every thing one can need for a good vacation

THIS PLACE IS WORTH THE DRIVE! BUT DON'T DRIVE AT NIGHT! I was a bit scared driving here at night, but I was so glad I did in the morning. Beautiful views, nice people who are very knowledgeable about activities and the area. Breakfast can be monotonous, but hearty. There is a pretty good restaurant on sight, but realize there's...

The only reason worth coming here is for the view. If you expect standard hotel amenities..good luck. Other than the view there were no positives. Negatives include: electricity turning off multiple times throughout the night, no phone in room, very terrible roads to drive to hotel itself, average quality food, and lack of working outlets. We booked for two nights...

The view is amazing, But the gardens and Surrounding area is just spectacular. We had a nice hike at the forest behind the property, We got to see monkeys, tucans and other birds. The food at the restaurant is good with nice prices
