“Absolutely Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights, Feb. 11th and 12th. We didn't know what to expect as we drove up the dirt long dirt path to the hotel. Finally, as we reached the top, we were nothing but pleased. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and super clean. The backdrop of the volcano is amazing! The staff here is wonderful. Extremely helpful with whatever your needs may be and also very honest. They explained to us not to waste our money on a night tour of the volcano, because it is not active at the moment, but told us of other activities in the area. Check out the Arenal Hanging Bridges and Tabacon Hot Springs if you get a chance. There is also two computers with internet right in the lobby for your convenience. You also feel very safe here, with security guards on at all hours of the night :).
Our bungalow was just perfect. Nice large, clean rooms with a large bathroom and really big shower. Each bungalow includes your own private porch with a table and chairs and a great view of the volcano to wake up to every morning. We also ate breakfast here both mornings and enjoyed it very much. The food was very costa rican, which I love and the juices were so fresh and delicious, along with the wonderful costa rican coffee I now love more then anything.
The landscaping of the entire hotel and the pool area are gorgeous with the volcano as the background for pretty much everything here. We absolutely loved our stay here and would have stayed longer if we had had more time. I definitely recommend this hotel and will absolutely be staying here again. I hope this review helps you find your piece of volcano paradise like it did for us :) Pura Vida!

We (4 of us) spent 4 days at Lomas del Volcan in Feb 2012. This hotel and its wonderful guest bungalows is really the height of luxury. The setting is breathtaking, right at the foot of the Arenal Volcano. Surrounded by immaculately kept gardens. The wildlife in the area is amazing and the gardens are full of exotic birds including hummingbirds. There is a lovely pool and jacuzzi with towels provided. Staff are very helpful and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The bungalows are equipped in the American style with two enormous beds and a fantastic bathroom/wet room. They are cleaned from top to bottom every day and the cleaner even finds time to shape the towels into amusing animals - swans, elephants, love birds. Even the toilet rolls get their own origami treatment each day! The breakfast is excellent and plentiful and is included in the price. We pushed the boat out and had the evening buffet one night. Super food. The hotel is handy for all the amenities - volcano, waterfalls, hot springs, zip lining, wildlife. A trip of a lifetime really.

Room Tip: All bungalows are well placed - ours were the furthest from the reception but still close enough to...

We stayed @ Lomas Del Volcan for 2 nights in February 2012 and had a lovely time. The hotel is extremely close to the volcano and on days the volcano is visible it's beautiful. The hotel is very close to La Fortuna town and there is a great small restaurant just down the street w/ local cuisine. The hotel is about 5 min off the main road but the view is worth it. We had no issues w/ our hotel room, just bring ear plugs because the birds can wake you up pretty early. The free breakfast is great also. We had a couple drinks @ the hotel bar but they were overpriced so I wouldn't recommend drinking there. Head into town since it's so close. Overall - great location, very clean hotel room/grounds. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for the 500 block of rooms, they are higher up on the grounds, closer to the volcano.

2 nights here on a Caravan tour. My wife was sick. Hotel staff were wonderful. What could she eat, how could they help etc. Rooms (actually bungalows) were perfect, well equipped and showers were huge and hot. (you are on the slopes of a volcano). Buffet meals very nice.

Standing joke was that the machine for blowing away the clouds from the volcano were broken and they were waiting for parts.

did not use the pool.

Comment(not a negative) It is about a $8 cab from the center of town.

We spent 3 nights here after reading Trip Adviser reviews. We had a large room with a patio facing the volcano; room had ac, tv, safety deposit box. We could sit on the patio and look at the volcano, sometimes see almost nothing, one time we saw the top. The buffet breakfast was excellent (included with cost of room). The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. We considered the buffet dinner, but with large tour groups always there, unless you were eating early, the selection did not look that good, and it was expensive ($25/person) compared to restaurants in La Fortuna. People without reservations who drove the 1+ km unpaved road to it were unhappy to find that no rooms were available even though the sign along the main road said "vacancy".

Room Tip: Make reservations
