We stayed for two nights as part of a group tour. We arrived in the dark and the path to our room was not lit and with a raised sidewalk, it was a little scary. The room was spacious. Lots of outdoor noises in the night, and I realized I could see through some of the wall slats in the...

This is a nicely laid out hotel just a bit out of town.The rooms were a bit tired and the place could clearly do with a make over. The shower in our room was positively dangerous switched all of its own accord from cold to scalding. For some strange reasons they insist you wear "all-inclusive" style wrist band, though even...

We liked our bungalow, rocking chairs, view and the hot springs. Its a neat place but would have gotten a higher rating if the wifi worked in the rooms and the breakfast was better. We had a car so it was easy for us to get to the hot springs river which is super cool..

My husband and I stayed at Arenal Pariiso for only one night, Room very plain, and didn't care for the big window in the bathroom, even if cabins are spaced far apart. Good view of Arenal from the porch. Nothing exciting about the food,, and it is a trek to the dining area.. (No choice about another restaurant.) Not on...

We stayed here 2 nights as part of our journey. Check in was easy and we were taken by bus to our room which was one of the furthest away. We stayed in an unattached wooden lodge with a view of the Volcano. The room is beautiful. Large with a Tv. There wasn't much on the TV in English but...

Arrived late in the evening to be told that we had to wear a wrist band at all times or we would not be allowed into any of the facilities. My wrist band was fastened too tightly by a not very pleasant member of staff and pinched so much that it had to be removed! This is a hotel NOT...
