Very beautiful hotel at an amazing location. I had a junior suite with a large balcony facing the volcano and it was gorgeous. Beautiful and very spacious room, very comfortable bed, lovely staff, nice pool and jacuzzi with volcano view, nice hikes on the property.. The owner went out of her way to help me with everything I needed and make suggestions for places to see in the surroundings. Delicious breakfast, good restaurant. I came for 3 days and ended up staying 2,5 weeks. I hope to come back.
The location of this hotel is unbelievable. Up on a hill, with an uninterrupted view over to the Arenal volcano. The hotel is surrounded by lush vegetation and has a great "jungle walk at the back of the grounds.
The room we were in could have done with a bit of a repaint but it was clean and very spacious.
I stayed here just because of the amazing view to the Arenal volcano. I loved waking up at 5:45 am every day and hearing the birds chirping, seeing all the beautiful flowers by the pool and be surrounded by nature. So peaceful!
I really liked the property and would definitely stay here again! One thing I would change; the breakfast. It’s not bad at all, but were given the same thing every day, only had a different type of sausage one day. I think everyone states the same thing.
When we arrived at the security gate we were told the driveway was over 2 kms. The hotel stands in 2,000 acres so there were plenty of very enjoyable walks. We had booked a standard room originally but asked for a junior suite on arrival which they were able to accommodate at a small charge. We were pleased that we did as it had a perfect view of the volcano and a good balcony. Saw many beautiful birds. The staff put out fruit for the birds on two bird tables and a Tolomuco came up to feed one morning. An excellent experience. Hotel is close to all sights we wanted to visit.
The room was all dark wood which made it quite dull in the evening. They could do with some improved lighting. Only a minor problem but better lighting would greatly improve the accommodation.
This hotel is very nice with a small but beautiful infinity pool in sight of the volcano. There's a wonderful area of rain forest in the grounds.
It's a long way from any other facilities and is 15 minutes off the main road. This makes it very peaceful, but after a day out you have no energy to drive miles so you use the hotel restaurant, where the food is mediocre and overpriced.
When you stay at Hotel Arenal Lodge in La Fortuna, you'll be on a lake, just steps from Lake Arenal and 11 minutes by foot from Arenal Volcano National Park. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, a computer station, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
