I am Teresa from Las Vegas, NV and this was my fourth visit - all were the same. The staff is excellent. The views and landscaping are beautiful, especially the views of the volcano. The rooms are very spacious, beautiful and comfortable. I highly recommend the Arenal Volcano Inn to everyone & I will be back myself.

Stayed here for two nights 5/31/13 and 6/1/13. The Ground are beautiful and the staff is welcoming and very freindly.

My only problems were with some ants that were crawling all around the...

Stayed at this hotel two nights in May during our 7 day Costa Rican trip. The room had a great view of the volcano and enjoyed having the mini fridge. The entire staff was polite, and professional. The food at the restaurant was excellent, prices pretty much the same as in the US and they have a good selection. Did...

I haven't stayed at other properties in the area. I based my evaluation on how this hotel compared to everything else I've experienced. It was very, very nice. It's starting to show its age a little, but beautiful views of the volcano.

We stayed at this property as part of a week long tour with Gate 1 Travel. The rooms were spacious and even had a kitchen "nook" with counterspace and fridge. The property itself is beautifully landscaped with a nice view of the volcano. They offered us a deal at the spa which we jumped on, which was more reasonably priced...

I extended my trip in Costa Rica and was now traveling alone and had caught a cold. Imagine my surprise when I called for room service hoping (but no way expecting) to get some chicken noodle soup.

This hotel was amazing. It was at the foot of the volcano and all the cottages had views of the volcano. The grounds were immaculately kept and had a nice pool and hot tub. The restaurant was nice and the food good. Happy hour at the bar was good, too.
