This centrally located three-story hotel is a great value. The less expensive rooms here are quite plain yet all clean and cozy, while for a bit more you can upgrade and get a private volcano-view balcony and in-room Jacuzzi. Even if you don’t, there’s a gorgeous, open-air, second-floor terrace with perfect views of the Arenal Volcano. This common area—with its potted palms, Chinese lanterns and tables, loaner board games, and chairs and couches under atrium-style open-air roofs—really is the highlight and social center of the hotel. The service at this family-run operation is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable.
