Good location, only a short drive to La Fortuna. Clean, spacious with really comfortable bed and nice friendly staff. Plenty of parking and decent breakfast. Very relaxing place and good value for money. The shower was very weak and it took long time for the water to get warm (not warm enough). Internet worked only in the breakfast area.

My family and I recently stayed at Jardines Arenal for a week. If you are tired of city life and you love nature, this is the best location. We had a large room with a spectacular volcano view. The breakfast in the morning is a choice between a typical Costa-Rican dish and American Breakfast. We didn't rent a car, and...

I recently stayed here with some family and had a great time. The people were truly helpful with planning activities and very welcoming. The grounds are beautiful and you are very near a nature preserve that makes a nice morning activity. Great breakfast and just a generally nice place to relax. It is a little bit out of Fortuna, and...

Our room had a great view of the volcano. It was spacious with A/C. Everything was clean but a bit bare. The rate was very cheap. Hernan and his wife,...

Stayed here for one night recently. Enjoyed the garden and the spectacular view of Volcan Arenal. Our room was very simple with a surprisingly large bathroom.
