Nice, clean cottages 500 m from city center and 6,5 kms from the waterfall. Adequate breakfast with fruit and eggs. They have a bird feeding table where they put fruit every morning that attracts a lot of colorful birds - very nice.

We loved our little bungalow! The grounds were full of flowers and hummingbirds very beautiful! Check with them if their pool is working again, if a pool is important to you. We were disappointed that there was no pool! Other than the lack of pool, breakfast was tasty and rooms were really cute! It would be nice for them to...

I had my own little hut which has en suite bathrooms. Very chilled out approach on reception but very close to all amenities in the town a short walk along the road. Beautiful birds everywhere and having a pool to was def a bonus. Went to the hot springs at Tabacon hotel which was great evening out with a buffet...

During our stay the pool was 'closed'. Meaning there was no water in it, so we weren't able to use it. However the rooms, or cabins are really spacious. It has everything you need. The light in the room during the day is perfect, at night when you turn on the light... not so perfect. It turns the room completely...

Hotel's view of the Arenal volcano is gorgeous, staff is friendly and helpful. Pretty well located, just a couple blocks from La Fortuna downtown, access to the hotel is pretty easy. Rooms are like little cabins and hotel gardens are really great as well. Rooms are air conditioned but if you don't use it, it could get really humid inside.

Stayed three nights as part of package. Hotel rooms very clean & comfortable. Good location to view volcano with lovely grounds. A pleasure to sit in the restaurant and watch the bird table. Slightly out of town but flat walk of about 700 metres to centre.

Hotel Arenal Montechiari is a family-owned hotel with extraordinary views of Arenal Volcano. The grounds wind around lush gardens full of butterflies and hummingbirds. Rooms are spacious and comfortable although can seem dark given the dark woodwork, but who spends much time in the room when there's so much to see outside? Each room has its own sitting area from...

I truly enjoyed my stay at Montechiari- great view of volcano, friendly service- especially the office lady- who really made it easier and more pleasant. 10 mins walk to La Fortuna town. I DO recommend.

The rooms were pretty dark, so you constantly have the feeling to put the lights on. The lodge was oké, not special. It was very cloudy, so we couldn't see the Arenal. Probably this lodge is much nicer with a good view to the Arenal, maybe? Without the view on the Arenal, this lodge wasn't special. It was located close...
