My mom, sister and I stayed here Dec 27-29. The room was clean, and Reyna at the front desk was great. We arrived mid day and she immediately helped us with our itinerary and bookings. There are no frills here - 1 towel per person, simple breakfast, etc. Wifi did not reach our room which was frustrating. Overall though, we...

Thank you for your comments, and for staying with us at Arenal Country Inn. It was a pleasure to meet and serve your family.

What we booked was not what we got. Flat screen tv was actually a 12" tv. To use it you had to unplug the ac and plug in the tv. So you had a choice...cool or tv. Bathroom was clean, but plaster was pealing off the wall, there was no conditioner, and you could smell mold from somewhere. I have...

Thank you for staying with us and for your comments. We are very dissappointed to receive a comment like this. We are a family owned and operated inn that works hard to stay up to date and to meet our guests every need. Unfortuately, we can not fix problems that are not brought to our attention while you are onsite....

Really enjoyed this as a birthday celebration for my spouse. The rooms are not the best, but they were private and nice. The staff was helpful, providing advice on where to eat with an Arenal view, as well as zip line recommendations.

The rooms were nice and clean. The staff was very helpful. The grounds were beautiful. Arenal Country Inn is located about 3/4 of a mile from downtown La Fortuna which is a nice walk along sidewalks. Arenal Country Inn staff exceeded my expectations when we ran into some issues with reservations (not made through them). Their staff spent the time...

The rooms are clean, but a little shabby (e.g. the AC units are just bolted onto the outside where a window once was) and my sister would want me to mention the mirror, which was the most extreme 'fat mirror' I've seen - making you look really wide (so much so we covered it up!) The pool area is nice...

We stayed here four days at the end of March. The grounds to the Inn were well kept and the view of Arenal volcano is spectacular from this property. The rooms are dated, but kept clean. Complimentary breakfast was provided. There is free wifi and all of the tours will pick up at the door. There is no restaurant at...
