Arenal itself is a nice place to stay (somewhat reminiscent of Queenstown in New Zealand). The room was comfortable and there was an excellent view of the volcano and en exquisitly clear morning. During the day, we took in a high-level bridge walk, and hot springs bath.

A comfortable bed, a clean shower and a good breakfast make for a good stop. The staff are also very helpful and provided us with very necessary, large umbrellas for walking around town. For filling up or water bottles, the bar staff filled a funnel with ice and then poured the water in through that, thereby creating deliciously cool water...

Located on a quiet street, this charming hotel, the pool and the smiling staff were a blessing after all the road we did. Rooms are clean and breakfast decent. Price is ok and activities can be booked from the lobby (but more expensive). Food-wise, DON'T miss the restaurant Soda Vasquez near the hotel. If you are more than 2, consider...
