Clean, spacious and private bungalows, in front of the Arenal Volcano. Not bad. They have a small refrigerator, a bed, a TV (never used), a sink, a good size closet, and a big bathroom, with a nice shower. You can sit outside and if you're lucky you can enjoy a great view of the Arenal VolcanoThe grounds are well-kept and nice looking. The breakfast is small (Option 1 with traditional rice and beans; Option 2 with fruits). Staff is friendly and accommodating (one day, they prepared breakfast earlier for us). Overall, a very good stay.

My only complaint is the noise from neighboring hostel (Howler Monkey) and cabins across the street. Saturday night was rowdy. If you are a light sleeper this may be an issue.

It's a bit far from town (25' walking along Diagonal 301 and 702). A taxi will cost around USD 3 (CRC 1500, always cheaper to par in Colones!) and will take 5' to get to town. On the good side, if you're going to the La Fortuna Cataratas (I'd not recommend them), you're there after a 15' walk.

There's a nice restaurant Tequicia, almost at the corner of 301 and 702.

Room Tip: Avoid weekends (the nearby Hostel and camp across the street can be noisy)

Super cute, well-maintained, and clean bungalow. Plenty of room, great made-to-order breakfast, huge shower stalls, good air conditioning and fan, inviting porch (for times of cooler weather). But rock hard beds and only two pillows, so no relief there. Need a sheet of memory foam or better mattress for any but the most hardened sleepers.

We visited Arenal Green Hotel for two nights. The cabins are very comfortable with excellent air conditioning. They are in a beautiful setting with fantastic views of Arenal Volcano and huge grounds to wander around. If you cross the bridge over the stream on the property and walk down towards the river, you'll come to a paved path. Just between the wooden gazebo and the outdoor shower off of the path you'll find blue jean frogs. There were also many birds and a toucan in the trees in the grounds. Breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious. The owner and staff were very warm and welcoming, and looked after us very well, they organised a night walk tour for us at Natura Ecological Park and that was a great experience. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Hotel was very nice for the brief time we stayed. The hotel itself, and grounds, were very well maintained. I would have preferred better lighting in the bathroom and darker shades on the windows to keep out the yard light. Made it difficult to sleep. We were supposed to stay 4 nights but unfortunately had to make a quick departure due to my husband's health condition. The front desk staff wasn't very supportive or accommodating. Tried to rebook for our return visit a few weeks later, but they were full.

Very Clean, Environment Friendly, Simple BUT ROMANTIC & CLASSY
- Each quaint cottage comes with a kitchenette & outdoor patio with your own patch of small garden
- Near waterfall (moderate uphill hike, just ask reception or Diana @ reception)
- Quiet / Peaceful surrounding
- Near downtown ( less than 10 mins. drive ) you can walk, but advisable to take vehicle because at night there are no street-lights and it is pitch-dark & surrounded by huge trees on both sides of the road
- our booking came woth free breakfst ( coffee, fruits and your choice of breakfast menu )
