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...

6 of us stayed 4 nights in their largest unit designed for 5 people. We were able to add the additional person for an additional $10 per night. For this we were given an old mattress to put on the floor. Initially we had 2 rooms reserved and the evening desk worker went above and beyond and cancelled one for...

This was the most disappointing hotel of our holiday. The little cabins look quite sweet but as soon as you walk in it's like going back in time with maroon bathroom suites and bedding I haven't seen since the 1970s! The beds were small but comfortable. The bathroom had broken panes on the slatted glass window. Nowhere to put anything...

Villa Vilma is a series of cabins divided into two spacious rooms, each with a private porch. The porches look out onto the property and the Arenal volcano, as opposed to the parking street which is a nice touch. There is seating on the porch and it makes the place feel somewhat like a resort. The pool area is outstanding...
