Good stay
Arenal Hotel offered a comfortable stay. The room was clean, and the property was nice. Breakfast was good, but pool was still being renovated. Rain began daily at 2-3pm, so we woke up at 6 am to see everything before we left.

6/10 Good

This property when I arrived was undergoing a major pool renovation. Although for future guests it will be a great pool area. The property is small and easy to navigate . The staff were very friendly and extremely accommodating. The rooms are single structures with high ceilings and natural wood walls. The bathroom is big and spacious. The room was very clean. Great room for the price!! David on the Rock 🇨🇦

Really nice property in a great location. Independent units located in the wilderness, but close to the main road. Great restaurant on site with friendly staff. Well maintained grounds. I recommend this property.

The room buildings are set back away from the road so it is quieter and more secluded than looks from the road. Great location for exploring area. The birding from our room was great.
