“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

Not a hotel or inn. Nice, private 1 bedroom villas with their own little lot. Genuinly caring staff. Great on-site italian pizzeria & restaurant. Perfectly located! 2 miles from the Arenal volcano national park (amazing view of the volcano from villa if their isn't any fog at the peak). 2 minutes from La Fortuna (beautiful little town) and 2-5 miles from all of the (world renowned) natural hot springs.

Its also a really fun drive to/from San Jose. You really get to experience the country driving there. Mountains, valleys, quaint towns and plenty of sights to see on the way and when you get there.

A man named Carlos looks like Barack Obama and has a great sense of humor about it! I took a picture of him with my wife and he held up the peace sign...very nice guy. Jonathan is great too...fun guy to talk with and down to earth.
The room we stayed in was overlooking the gardens next to the deck and pool. The sounds of the bullfrogs and all the creatures of the night was great to listen to as we fell asleep. They have birdfeeders that can easily be seen from tables in the dining room overlooking the Arenal Volcano. They also have a visiting Macaw named Stephanea that visits the back deck. She loves toast (with butter of course)!
The bar has a pool table which my son Max enjoyed very much. The pool and hot tub were clean. The front desk staff was very helpful...especially Rebecca who is very down to earth and kind.
Thanks to all who made our 3 night stay incredible!

Room Tip: Our room was quiet but could be noisy due to it's proximity to the deck and pool if the place wa...

We had a pleasant stay at the Arenal Volcano Inn. The front desk and restaurant staff were helpful. The restaurant menu and food was average - nothing wrong just nothing special either. Our cabin was well appointed, spacious and always clean. It came with small fridge and coffee maker, love the fridge - cold water. There is a small space out on our front of each unit and it was so incredible to relax watching so many different types of birds, especially the hummingbirds feeding their baby on the hedge not two feet away. The gardens are beautiful. The volcano is often covered in clouds and the hotel too far from La Fortuna to walk. It is well located for all the activities and adventures the area offers.

This is a great place to stay, with beautiful gardens, birds to watch, a helpful staff and a good restaurant. It also has a view to the volcano. Highly recommended.

We loved our stay at Arenal Volcano Inn. We showed up without reservations and they were sold out of their regular rooms and the front desk was kind enough to work with us and we were able to stay for a few nights in their junior suite! The ladies at the desk were amazing and the many breakfast options in the morning left us full for most of the day! The location was a great starting point for all of our activities we did while in Arenal! Great views - must stay here if you are visiting Arenal!

Room Tip: Our junior suite was a great surprise on our trip. We loved the kitchen available and the comfortabl...
