What's your budget? We stayed at the Arenal Observatory Lodge on our last couple of trips and loved it for all the great hiking trails and excellent wildlife sightings. It's set away from town out by the lake so more wildlife there than at other places. Silencio del Campo is popular too, good if you want hot springs on site. If you want upscale there are places for that as well.

Yes, without knowing what your budget is, it's difficult to make recommendations. If you have your own vehicle there are places to consider that aren't centrally located.

If you need to stay near La Fortuna, I recommend Villas Vilma, Hotel Kokoro, and Lomas del Volcan.

We loved our stay at Arenal Observatory Lodge. It is under 2 miles away from the Arenal volcano, has great views of the Arenal L. in the distance, too. Your rates include breakfast in the restaurant with glass walls and great views, and a guided morning hike for 2.5 hrs. It is not far from SkyAdventure, but farther from La Fortuna than lots of other hotels. The outdoor pool was unheated, we found it too cold, so used the jacuzzi next to it instead. It does not have hot springs on the property. We saw 2 types of monkeys, a toucan, himmingbirds, lots of other birds, big groups of coati, butterflies, frogs, etc on the property.

As the others have said, it depends on your budget.
