This place has very clean rooms and beautiful landscaping for just sitting outside and watching the pretty birds fly by. Simple rooms, but clean and comfortable. The front desk and maid were very accommodating. However, the restaurant has terrible service. I came in by myself for an early dinner, no other customers were there, I waited 20min. for a salad...

We stayed in a mountain view cabin at La Pradera. We had room 48. That was the best room on the property with a full view of the volcano. The breakfasts were very good, the pool facilities where super clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and organizing tours and activities was super simple. The locations fantastic. Just...

Front desk was friendly and very helpful. Would have given them a five star review but the food is average at best....

What a great hotel!! Loved the cabins which faced the volcano-- great food, friendly, helpful staff, beautiful surroundings. No complaints whatsoever. Just right!! We used it as a base for other adventures, but could have just stayed there, hiked around and lounged around the grounds.

We stayed 3 nights in a room with a outdoor sitting area and a view of the bottom of the volcano (the clouds never lifted enough to see the top). There is construction going on around the property. They run ATV tours from the hotel and the ATVs are stored an open doorway from the restaurant. The pool and hot...

There is a lovely swimming pool with the view of Arenal volcano (on condition that the weather is nice). Hotel consists of only a few rooms or bungalows and the breakfast is served (you can...
