Stayed here for only one night while visiting Arenal. Beautiful grounds with landscaped gardens and cute villas. Great location and view of Arenal Volcano from outside the room. Very clean and accommodating with a pool and hot tub. Would recommend this place as it is in a great location close to the hot springs and La Fortuna waterfall

We stayed here for two nights with friends. It is a delightful place to stay and a great alternative to the larger tourist hotels in the area. The room we stayed in was spotless as were the grounds outside. The family who owns Villas Vilma are friendly and make you feel welcome and appreciated.

Due to a mix up with dates at our booked accommodation we ended up staying at Villas Vilma completely unexpectedly. This wasn't too much of a chore however as the hotel is lovely. It's run by very helpful Costa Rican staff who speak English and also have the patience for my very bad Spanish (In itself a recommendation). The accommodation...

This is a nice, quiet place just out of the main town for families wanting to visit the Arenal area. It's on the main road and just a few kilometers drive to the volcano and attractions there. We have a family of 5 which is hard to find rooms with enough beds for. We were all in one room but...

Great spot for a group! Pool and hot tub is awesome! Views the best and location perfect to keep teenagers from running off to a bar. Red frog coffee roasters and cafe nearby. Laundry across street. AC in rooms. Great hammocks. Ask for a blanket at front desk if existing bedding isn't enough for you.

We stayed here 10 years ago when the volcano was active - could watch from our porch. We found the place again, pretty much the same except for the color on the buildings. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are large and comfortable. We found the staff very nice and friendly. Everything in Costa Rica has gone up I...

My husband and I came here for 2 nights. The rooms were very clean, shower was nice and roomy! Extra shelving in the bathroom as well. There was a fridge and extra sink. The view of the volcano is right in front of your room. Spectacular. There's a lovely hammock which I took advantage of to read. The pool and...

I loved my stay in La Fortuna largely due to the comfortable hotel room and facilities. Waking up with a view of the volcano the first day was a perk, there are many rainy days and we were blessed with a view from our room. I spent many evenings and early mornings lounging in the hammock, enjoying the jungle sounds...

Like all hotel photos, Hotel Villas Vilma is not what it appears. So you might be a bit disappointed when you see a row of garishly coloured villas as you enter right off the main road. But no reason to be worried. Large, spacious room. Lovely swimming pool and small hot tub. HVV is on the rapidly expanding 'strip' to...

We stayed here last year at Christmas. By the time we booked, there was not much left in terms of choices in La Fortuna for that week. This was available, and we stayed in 2 rooms for 5 of us in our family (3 teenage boys who like to have their own beds). Very reasonable price for the time of...
