Best of all were the friendly and courteous staff. It was me and a buddy traveling from Sacramento to take in...

Centrally located 5 minutess up the hill from the little town of La Fortuna and 5 minutes down the hill from the major hot springs resorts, hanging bridge and zip line tours, plus other hiking and adventure tours; The Arenal Volcano Inn is a steal during the rainy season. I can't say what pricing is during summer but my buddy...

We had booked Las Lavas hotel through Groupon and left after one night. Luckily we had friends staying at the Volcano Inn, so we booked in there. The casitas all have a view of the volcano, the grounds are gorgeous, and the breakfast is good. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is a little outside La Fotuna,...

This hotel was recommended by Marcia, our trip planner at Anywhere Costa Rica, after our first hotel choice was unavailable. We stayed 3 nights here. I was a little nervous about it, but ended up really liking the hotel. The location was perfect, very natural setting, a view of Arenal Volcano. The hotel consists of mostly bungalows, which is great...

Our stay at the Arenal Volcano Inn was fantastic! Beautiful, quiet and clean. The service there was great. Fernanda at the reception desk let us check in 4 Hrs early after a long drive and Raphael made sure we always had a cocktail or a great recommendation for dinner. I highly recommend this wonderful place and will be my first...

We have been sent to this hotel by our travel agency and were a bit reserved about it because it was a second option for us, instead of Arenal Springs hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the great service at the reception and at the restaurant. We were given recommendations about where to go for thermal springs as well. The...

We stayed at Arenal Volcano Inn from 3/18/14 thru 3/21/14. For three families in our group, we had three rooms for three nights. Each room was clean and big enough for each family of four. There was a small refrigerator and safe in each room. We had a clear view of volcano from each room. The hotel's restaurant served great...
