This place has changed hands a couple of times in recent years. Originally the Hotel Tilawa, its most recent incarnation was as the Volcano Brewing Company. Despite the change, a microbrewery and brewpub are still on site, and both are quite good. In fact, the current management seems to be the most engaged and attentive in quite some time. Set on a high hillside overlooking Lake Arenal, this place has always catered primarily to the windsurf and kitesurf crowds. And they later further catered to that crowd by building a skateboard and BMX bike park. Still it’s not a bad choice for anyone looking to explore the area, or spend some time taking in an amazing view of Lake Arenal. Rooms are simple and slightly spartan, but most are quite spacious and well-maintained..
