We loved this place! Cute, private, very clean bungalows. The grounds and pool are beautiful and very well-kept. Breakfast was served in a charming setting and was delicious and filling. Excellent WiFi in our room. Front desk staff was very helpful when we needed transportation. Great value and great location for a home base when exploring the Arenal/La Fortuna area!

I had a great experience at Arenal Country Inn. Me and three of my peers were staying in room 22. We probably had one of the biggest rooms in the hotel, not to mention a spectacular air conditioning system. Every morning we had breakfast at the hotel from 7-9 AM. Arenal Country Inn also had a pool, a pool table,...

Private bungalows, large rooms with comfortable beds. Grounds were well maintained and pool kept very clean. If there are no clouds you have a beautiful view of the Volcano. Very ideal location close to many restaurants and activities to do throughout the day.
