Overall our family (my wife, daughter and me) had good time at that place. What impressed us are: 1) nice hotel personel (reception, maintenance and breakfast buffet) 2) nice location (close to nice restorants, shops and tour tourist businesses) 3) nice hotel territory

The surrounding is wonderful, nice pool and great breakfast. The staff were very friendly and helpful, helped us with laundry needs, recommended and arrangement of transportation of spa trip. Close to spa and town. Enjoyed my staying very much.

The view and the hotel property are what makes this place decent. The rooms are a bit outdated but a good size and a good layout. Noise was my biggest issue as we had a tour group with some young adults that were swapping bed most of the night. The breakfast is decent but presentation could use some attention. This...

What a beautiful hotel! The cabanas were amazing and had a great view of the volcano (when the clouds cleared and fog lifted). The hotel had great amenities and we greatly appreciated the A/C and hot water. The entire staff (cooks, maids, reception) were very friendly and extremely helpful. Whether we booked activities through them, asked for their opinion on...

Stayed here for 2 nights and the whole family liked it, the pool was nice, rooms very clean with TV and fridge which was perfect. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to Fortuna center and there is no restaurant on site so we had to walk every evening. The personal was kind and helpful.

My boyfriend and I moved to Hotel Arenal Montechiari with a day's notice after a disastrous hostel experience. The cabins are quiet & cozy (yet very spacious) with an excellent view of the Volcano. The bed was very comfortable - we requested extra pillows since the bed only had two and they were sort of flat and they had to...

Husband and I got the honeymoon suite in the back with a king bed. It's clean and beautiful . It's really charming and adorable. The volcano is visible in our window. Too bad it's hidden in the clouds. It's a nice retreat. The disadvantages are that theres no wifi in the room, The AC leaks, the restaurant is closed in...

We stayed here for 3 nights, found the cabins good value for money, and an easy walk into town. A good place to spot the resident iguanas and toucans! Breakfast could do with a bit of work, but not bad for the price. The rooms were clean, beds comfy and air con was fitted, which helped in the humidity. A...

We loved our stay here. The cabinas were clean, quiet and cozy with lots of wood. The gardens were beautiful and well kept. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Typical breakfast included. Easy walking distance to town and views were incredible. A picture is worth a thousand words right?

I'm not sure why everyone is marking this place as "very good". For your money you get a helpful service staff, clean accommodations (with stained sheets), breakfast which we were not interested in and a very small pool. Your room will not have a view of the volcano. The pathway has excellent volcano views. I'd say this place is a...
