Paradise and Disaster

Arenal Lodge was gorgeous! 185.00 one way trip from the airport to the lodge. 35.00 one way trip to Lafatuna. We suggest renting a car from Adobe Car Rentals. Now a quick point about Spirt Airlines andCheap Caribian. I suggest never use Spirit. They said their seats were full and our flights were cancelled due to Irma hurricane. Yet we could still get on line and purchase the same flight. 26 hours at the airport in Fort Lauderdale another flight cancelled. We called Cheap Caribian and was told it would be the 23 or 24th before they coul change our flight that was sceduled to leave at noon on the 11fh. They also said they could get us another one way flight to DFW for 1000.00 per ticket. That was more than we paid for the vacation. We did make it home at 1:00 am to DFW on the 14th. After 26 hours of waiting at the airport. I have had cancer treatments and we took this vacation to de stress. Not STRESS! Hope this helps some one

Worth the vacation

It's worth the vacation package got to stay a week at the beautiful arenal lodge talk to the locals take all the interesting tours like the arenal volcano national park la fortuna waterfall hanging bridges the food was excellent especially their local cuisine called cassado which is rice and beans choice of meat. Overall the flight thru delta airlines went well without any interruptions. I would recommend this trip to anyone who travels a lot like me.

Stay with a view

This lodge was tucked away into the rain forest so the views surrounding it were wonderful! When the sky was a clear, you had a breath taking view of the volcano and woke up to the sounds of the Howler Monkeys! If you're coming to Costa Rica to enjoy the beauty of nature, there isn't a better place to stay! The staff was very nice, helpful and fun to be around! Everyone seems so genuinely happy to share the history of the lodge and Costa Rica with you!

Staff was polite and friendly. The horseback ride at the property was a good value. TV in our room didn't work and wasn't fixed by staff. However, the hotel comp'ed our dinner because of the TV issue. There was a small issue with bugs in the room but bugs are very prevalent in the area. Overall the room was clean. The breakfast was good but there was not much variety and it didn't change any of the days we were there. The pool was very nice and had a great view of the volcano behind it. The exercise room was basic and needed updating. We met the owner and he was very kind and accommodating. The entrance and exit to the hotel is a very steep rocky road that goes up the side of a mountain for about a mile. A vehicle with four wheel drive is a plus.

What's to Love

The Arenal Lodge staff is friendly, and the complimentary rainforest nature walking tour is a great way to take advantage of the incredible environment.
 

What We'd Change

It is a bit of a trek over some bumpy hills to get there, but that's the only way to really get close to nature.
 

Why You Should Go

The lodge is nice and secluded, but still so close to the attractions in the area. And you just can't beat the amazing view of the rainforest, lake and the awesome Arenal Volcano!

Hotel Description

Arenal Lodge: Share a Rainforest Adventure

When there's been just way too much concrete in your life, get back in touch with nature and enjoy a stay at Arenal Lodge located on 2,000 acres of tropical rainforest in the shadow of the famous Arenal Volcano. The beautiful rainforest houses hundreds of the exotic birds, butterflies, tropical flowers and trees of Costa Rica. Situated on a hill, Arenal Lodge offers some of the best panoramic views available of the towering Arenal Volcano. It's a perfect spot for a private getaway.

The cool mountain climate is perfect for the year-round recreational activities that include horseback riding, a complimentary guided rainforest nature walking tour and access to the lodge's breathtaking butterfly garden. Guests can relax in the outdoor infinite edge swimming pool or in one of the three outdoor Jacuzzis. How many times will you get a chance to swim in a pool while enjoying a view of a volcano? There are rainforest trails you can explore on your own where you can watch a variety of bird species flying overhead. Look out for Stephania, one of the local wild blue and gold Macaws that lets you feed her fresh fruit and sunflower seeds. Just don't forget your comfy shoes! And relaxing indoors is easy with a game of billiards at the Lodge's pool table.

Dining is both easy and delicious at the La Fortuna restaurant located on the property. The local and international cuisine is organic and locally produced when possible and served by a friendly waitstaff. Vegetarian or gluten-free eaters can eat to their hearts' content as the chef is happy to accommodate special dietary requests. The restaurant and its incredible view of the Arenal Volcano and beautiful lake attracts locals, too. While you're there, try out the bar's specialty drinks and take in the atmosphere.

Don't forget to venture out and take advantage of the hot springs heated by the volcanic activity. Or take a tour of La Fortuna, the town about 4 miles from the volcano with places to see and shops to browse through. Looking for more adventure? Ask the staff about organizing a canyoneering or kayaking trip!

This hotel is NOT All-Inclusive, but does include a daily complimentary American breakfast. Additional food and drink must be purchased separately.
