This hotel was our first stay in Costa Rica on our honeymoon. The staff were great, helpful and friendly. The rooms had your basics covered and it was a great home base for exploring the area. One con is that the AC units were not great. The abundance of life just outside the fro

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights with an EF Tour group. We really enjoyed this hotel with an amazing view of Arenal Volcano. The room was clean and roomy with a nice little outdoor patio. The layout was lovely, with rooms in separate buildings surrounded by beautiful

I traveled through Costa Rica with a group of 23 high school students. Eco Arenal was a favorite for many of them. This is not luxury living, but it's truly authentic. Iguanas, salamanders and other critters inhabit the area as the hotel is literally in the rainforest. The cottag

We stayed here during our G Adventures Costa Rica Quest tour. When we arrived, we thought "what a lovely place". The grounds are very nice, with a pool in the center. However, we were the last couple to get a room and, as such, got what was left. It was a disappointment. Located

Dear guest, We want to thank you immensely for taking the time to leave us your comments according to your recent stay at our hotel. Rooms are assigned since G Adventures made the reserve, so being the last ones to get the key does not mean that we gave you what was left over. On the other hand, all the rooms are the same, the difference is that the cabins are smaller, so we prefer use the larger buildings especially for G Adventures groups, in order to give you more comfort. Finally, I'm glad to know that you liked the hotel facilities and that you had a good night. We strive to give all our guests peace and tranquility during their stay with us. Best regards, Nathalia Araya Manager Hotel Eco Arenal

Do you allow pets? I have a small dog and would like to know your pet policy.
You best check the website and/or call or mail the hotel. Tripadvisor does not allow placing links as answer so google on the hotel name: villas Eco Arenal. You get the website. On others booking sites it says "Pets are not allowed", but i think it is best to check with the hotel. regards, Olaf van Velthuijsen

Hello ( I learned Mr. Eduardo is the contact person), I want make reservations at Villa Eco Arenal from Apr 30 to May 3, 2015. I have the following questions: 1. My wife is a vegetarian and we do not eat beef or pork. Do you other choices? 2. Dose the breakfast included in the booking price? 3. What shuttle or bus to come to hotel from San Jose (SJO) airport? Will the shuttle drop us in the hotel? 3. Do you have shuttle to take us to La Fortuna city 4. Do you make reservation for sight seeing and shuttle back to airport of Puntarenas? Thank you 4.
The breakfast was included in the price of our cabin. They had a buffet which included fresh fruit, bread and spreads, cheeses, pancakes, and other assorted items. There was some meat, but enough other items that you could eat without requesting anything special. They will assist with booking sight seeing trips. I do not know the answers about transportation as we had a rental car. I hope you enjoy your trip.

Is breakfast included? If so, what does it typically consist of? Thank you.
"The double bungalows are one story and easier to access."
"Ask for one of the little duplex cabins"
"wifi was not strong enough to reach rooms"
"Our little row of bungalows around the green were lovely, quieter on week days"
"All the rooms have good location, but it looks like for a long time nobody is taking care of the basics."
