Our family of 4 (2 kids ages 8 and 10) stayed here for 3 nights. We were unit 22 which was larger than the others I believe. We had 4 double beds which my kids loved so they didn't have to share a bed. The unit was spacious and A/C was comfortable. We found the unit to be clean and...

We loved our little cabana. The AC worked well. We had plenty of hot water. They provided shampoo, body wash, and hand soap. The food was plentiful and delicious. Within walking distance to town. Take a flashlight.

Beautiful landscaping, charming, cozy little bungalows. Comfortable and clean. Enjoyed the buffet breakfast. Short drive to the Volcano and other attractions. After seeing other hotels in the area, I was very pleased with our choice.

Internet could have been faster but was acceptable. A marvellous swimming pool and loungers. The breakfast buffet had fruit, juice, scrambled eggs, rice and beans, cereals. Overall a good...

This hotel was in a great location, with a great amount of space! The rooms were clean and tidy, although there were a few roaches around!! Some of the rooms are more modern than others, of which they didn't get roaches! The staff were very helpful, and as I was travelling in a larger group, were happy to help by...

During our trip by car through Costa Rica, we spent some days in the, family run, Arenal Country Inn. Despite it's rural character, it is comfortable and homely, and first of all, near to the busy town of La Fortuna to profit from it's nightlife, restaurants and other benefits. The contact with the owner family was very kind.

We stayed in a lovely bungalow set in spacious gardens. The accommodation was clean and had air con and a fan. The pool was lovely. Its a small walk into town but it went past a local market which was interesting. There is some road noise in some bungalows which is worth being aware of.
