The Arenal Country Inn is its own slice of paradise near the town of La Fortuna. The location is perfect being ust a quick 3 minute drive from downtown La Fortuna but at the same time it is a great place to get away from the busy city of San Jose. The rooms are clean and well equipped and the...

This place is absolutely gorgeous. The bungalows were so cute and clean. My favorite part though was the pool. You could see the top of the volcano from the pool, whenever the clouds weren't covering it. And everyone was so hospitable. I would definitely come back to this hotel for another visit!

The Arenal country inn is an absolutely beautiful hotel. Their landscaping was immaculate! Service was great! Some of the receptionist spoke English but not all. Overall the hotel is clean. The pool was in great condition! The volcano is visible, however with the clouds it was a little difficult to see at times. All in al, great experience.

What a cute and beautiful setting for this Inn. The little cabins are just adorable. We were brought fresh fruit and juice. It was yummy. The grounds are kept very pretty. The pool has an amazing view. The volcano has been hiding from us, but I bet it is as spectacular as we imagine. Will definitely be back to this...

We enjoyed our visit here, the bungalows were cosy and private. The pool was big and quite, rooms were clean and it was only a short walk into town. There are places outside to eat for dinner in the evening. Only thing that wasn't as nice was the breakfast.

We rented two sides of a cabina here and were overall very pleased with our stay. The price was excellent (shop around through various booking sites for this one) and check-in service was great. The cabinas were basic but very clean. The beds were far too hard and we like hard beds. It is a bit of a walk into...

Our little bungalow in the middle of a jungle paradise was great. We awoke to the sound of tropical birds every morning and a great "Tico" breakfast outside. The gardens are spectacular and we enjoyed the large, clean pool every evening after our daily adventures to the Arenal volcano and the La Fortuna Waterfall. The staff was so friendly and...

Everything was amazing - only a short 7 minute walk (very safe in the day and night) to centre city and grocery. The rooms are nice and clean - the hotel grounds have toucans, birds, lizards and lots of flowers! The pool over looks the Arenal volcano and the staff are friendly. There is air conditioning and a mini fridge....
