For that price you get quite good accommodation with the pool. The pity that the breakfast is not included. However the moll is just 200m down the street towards the center which is about 2km further. The good thing is the waterfalls is quite close that place as well as the Arenal Vulcan.

We stopped in on impulse as well and ended up staying two nights almost three. Faylon was working the front desk and gave us the best advice on zip lining, horseback riding and hot springs. After our first day of adventures we knew he was legit and he was. He wasn't trying to sell us anything, truly wanted to show...

Villas Vilma is right on the fringes of La Fortuna heading towards the volcano. We were first attracted by the colorful cabins and beautiful landscaping. On impulse, we checked in and got a private room with two double beds for $50 per night. It was pouring rain but the jacuzzi has a roof, so we spent an hour there quite...

This was an awesome find on our trip. Super clean and comfortable hotel run by a nice Tico family. This was a great value for the price. The breakfast at the neighboring hotel was super as well. awesome to watch hummingbirds flit about the beautiful pool side setting. Beautiful gardens

Guided by Tripadvisor reviews we stopped here for a night on the way to Arenal volcano. Properly well kept and has beautiful volcano view. Manicured lawn, beautiful flowers, stone pawed walkways, big pool and jacuzzi. Clean rooms with quiet split room ac systems installed, showers with plenty of hot water.
