We stayed for one night while on a tour. We had a beautiful view of the volcano and I enjoyed seeing the cows nearby. The hotel is close to many places of interest and sits right next to a sizable souvenir shop. The breakfast only had two options and was just okay. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly.

Stayed in low season (august) when it was very quiet. No restaurant or bar which meant we had to walk to get food every meal (fine except when the rain was torrential!). The included breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Kids loved the swimming pools and watching the lines of busy leaf-cutter ants in the far garden. Balcony on the front of our cabin was a great bonus so we could sit and watch wildlife any time of day, and had the most amazing view of the volcano. If you want to spot butterflies go to Angelina Garden just 10 minutes walk down the road - free entry and we spent a good few hours happily wandering around. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

This was a wonderful hotel with extremely friendly staff. The rooms were extremely clean and hotel is within walking or driving distance to many restaurants. Also the large gift shop out front made buying souvenirs very easy since we had such a busy schedule. The staff was so kind- breakfast starts at 7 but we had a tour leaving at 7. They offered to have our breakfast ready at 6:30. When we went to pick it up that morning, it was all packaged up and ready for us.

We enjoyed our three day visit to La Pradera. Room was spacious, comfortable beds, really good breakfast. Too bad the restaurant isn’t open for lunch or dinner. The hotel is on the edge of town, quiet, nice balcony, good view of the Arenal mountain and volcano (when it’s not raining or foggy.) The pool and hot tubs are great! Amazing gift shop! The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. They arranged an amazing ATV Tour for us one day plus a Coffee & Chocolate Tour the next morning plus a rainy Hiking Tour of the Arenal Volcano (not the staff’s fault that it was raining) which was followed by an incredible buffet dinner and two hours in the hot tubs at Baldi Hot Springs.

We stayed at this hotel because it was in our budget and overall it was good. The rooms were really spacious and had nice little gardens in front of them. There didn't seem to be many other people there, and the bar and restaurant were non-operational except for breakfast. It was on a main road and about a 15-minute walk to the town center, however the we tried the walk and turned back because it seemed pretty dangerous. I would recommend this as a good budget-friendly hotel! There was also an incredible view of the volcano.

We stayed here in one of the mountain bungalows for three nights. The grounds were beautiful. Great view of the volcano. Pool and hot tub well kept. Daily cleaning service with towel animals. The staff here did not go out of their way for you. I just didn’t get the welcoming feeling I thought I would. The hotel has a huge bar and restaurant. The bar was never open and the restaurant only for breakfast. It would have been nice to know this before booking. Luckily we rented a car and were able to drive down the street for meals. The breakfast every morning was delicious. The hotel has a huge souvenir shop attached to it with a nice selection. They also have an ATV tour that they offer. This was our favorite part about staying here. Donald was our guide. He took us on an amazing tour on the mountainside, through cattle fields and rivers. He even held our phone and took pics and videos of us riding. He was very genuine and caring. We stopped so he could show us a sloth in the wild. It was awesome. Then, after the tour we got dinner that was included. It was fantastic!

What an amazing experience. This experience was a first time for me. My husband had ridden ATVs before and i was scared at first. Our instructor/tour guide walked me through the steps and taught me how to use the ATV. I can't wait to do it again. We drove through a farm, river, a crazy road that i may say was very interesting but awesome. We did a couple of pit stops and when we were all done the tour came with lunch. Best experience even for the amateurs. We will be back!

We arrived at this hotel after a long flight from the UK and a three hour drive. Our confirmation stated we would have a room with a garden view and wine or champagne in the room. We were shown to a dingy room overlooking a busy main road, which we refused. We were then offered a garden vow room, but told we could only have this for one night. The booking was made in October 2019 and we travelled the22nd February 2020. No wine or champagne, granted the room was better. Nice pool area. Breakfast average. They had obviously double booked. Not impressed as we then had to find another hotel the next day. Pretty disgusting to treat people like this.

We stayed here for three nights in one of the bungalows. Overall I'd say the hotel is pretty good. The best part about it was the view of the volcano from our porch - we liked sitting out there and taking in the sights. Breakfast was fine, not amazing, and mostly the same every day. The bungalow was a bit dark, and we got no wifi signal in our room (it worked on the porch). We had a couple room issues come up, but the staff responded to them immediately, which I appreciate.

We ran over from Playas del Coco to see volcano and waterfalls. Stopped in for directions and met a guy who spoke English and wound up staying for the night. Place has a huge gift shop, 2 hot tubs and a nice pool. Room was big but mattress was too firm for us. Breakfast was included and was very good. Service was great. Right on the main road into town. We drove to the “free” hot water river and enjoyed soaking there after paying to park. The next day back to soak, then the La Fortuna falls. Great quick overnight stay.
