We stayed at the Arenal Paraiso for 2 nights and it looks beautiful on the outside, but it is pretty average within the rooms. We had to change rooms right away because the bathroom had a weird moldy smell. Pros: Air conditioning unit worked well and it was quite a luxury Discounts to tours and activities Breakfast meal - eggs,...

We wanted to do a quick trip to hot springs during our 2 night stay near arenal, and this 20$ budget option seemed nice in the photos on the website. However, we were very disapointed that half the pools were stagnating or empty. We would not recommend goin there!

A hotel $10 cab ride outside La Fortuna. It is under the volcano but of course you cannot always see it. And, of course, it no longer spews lava! The rooms are spread around as paired cottages but with very thin walls. The loo in particular allows a lot of sound to pass through! But the grounds are nice and...

Traveling over Easter week with a family of 6, it was challenging to find a hotel that could accommodate us. We had a suite at Arenal Parasio, but it had an odd setup with a kitchen/sitting area and then 2 bedrooms on either end of the main room. That would have been fine except the main room did not have...

We stayed here two nights on our tour in a room with a great view of the volcano when it wasn't shrouded in cloud. The room was average, but the beds very uncomfortable and awful pillows.

This is a nice looking hotel in a very good location, but the beds were in terrible shape and not very comfortable... The pools are average but the good thing is that they are not overcrowded. Breakfast was ok(average). The juice selection was poor, they didn´t have orange juice.
