Recent guest reviews

The view, the room, the staff, the food, the drinks ALL 5 Star! I’m counting the seconds until i can come back and visit this place!

I stayed at the Volcano Lodge and Springs Hotel in La Fortuna, Costa Rica from 10/23/17 - 10/29/17. The hotel was very well maintained, the staff was very courteous and on point. Our room came with a Jacuzzi with Thermal springs water (little too hot) but great nonetheless. Maid service was exceptional and the restaurant had tasty food at decent prices. Happy Hour from 4-6 at the wet bar was very cool. The view of the Volcano Arenal from our outside patio was spectacular. I would definitely recommend this hotel to people I know. Regards, Frank O.

The hot spring was great. The regular pool was a cool pool. Very refreshing after the hot springs. Beautiful property. Flowers and birds everywhere. You can see the whole volcano from the pool... when the clouds are out of the way. Back deck off the room was very relaxing with the rocking chairs ans scenery. Hotel has $10 one way set free shuttle ride to and from La Fortuna. Had a great stay. Only complaint is there is no exhaust fan in the bathroom.

We woke up everyday to a beautiful view of arenal. Hotel staff was very friendly. The included breakfast was great but I Was not impressed with any food we ordered from the other menus and it was very expensive.

This hotel has beautiful ambiance. Every view is a photo opportunity. The variety of the pools is fun and we ventured to all of them. The breakfast selection was outstanding!

Best hotel I've stayed at. First time guest and can't wait to return. Mineral waters are fantastic. Swim up bar with happy hour is great. Also Lobby happy hour at the bar ends at 11pm, besides having a pool table, darts, mini soccer table, and plenty of seats around. No regrets at all, would recommend 100% to any couple or family vacation.

This hotel is very lovely. Breakfast is very good, and we loved watching the birds eat the fruit that was provided every morning. The Thermal pools were amazing and the happy hour pricing for drinks daily were very affordable and delicious.

Perfect location for our trip to the Arenal/La Fortuna area. Beautiful hotel and friendly staff.

Had issue with check-in and waited to speak to manager before being refused. Beautiful hotel grounds do not make up for horrendous customer service. Take your business to another nearby hotel.

Nice facilities but management is nonexistent. In an unfamiliar country, I cannot in good conscience recommend.

The grounds and facilities are impeccable. We had a king size bed with AC and ceiling fan (so hard to find all three in Costa Rica!) We just walked over to the thermal pools and swim up bar. The dinner was decent in the restaurant though could have been a little better for the price. The breakfast was excellent.

The staff was excellent, the rooms were comfortable, and the food was really great. They helped us book our tours, and gave us really useful information regarding LA Fortuna.

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The hotel is located against the main road so there was a bit of vehicle and truck noise. The rooms were comfortable but older. The grounds were beautiful and the food was great.

The rooms were immaculate, but yet simple. All the different buildings, like the Jacuzzi, were hidden by all the different vegetation. You could actually get lost on the compound. The staff was incredible!!

The grounds included a formal garden that attracted birds, the hot spring was cleaned regularly and a perfect temperature. The food was very good. But the best thing of all was the lifting of the clouds which gave an unimpeded view of Arenal Volcano. Beautiful.

The Volcano Lodge & Springs is by far the best hotel I´ve stayed in La Fortuna, the superior thermal room is just perfect...and the private pool is just the cheery on top.

We didn't know what to expect, but whatever we could have thought of, they exceed it. Everything was perfect from the time we checked in until we checked out. The staff, the grounds, the hot springs, the food (oh yeah the seviche was the BEST we ever tasted). We highly recommend this place.

beautiful pool, and hot springs. staff was quick to bring me an extra towel. Its quiet and very relaxing. Minutes from La Fortuna.

This is a beautiful resort with very friendly staff, well-maintained grounds, and great food. We had a Junior Suite (highly recommend it!) with a view of the volcano and our own personal mineral hot spring spa. The spa is just outside the room with foliage for privacy. The room was huge with a comfortable king bed and beautiful bathroom. Parking was just a few steps from the room. Wi-fi was very good, strong with no interruptions in service. The property has a number of hot springs and pools, and there is at least one open 24 hours a day. Hot springs are accessible to all. The food was very good, and for Valentine's day there was a special menu and live music. In the morning, near the restaurant, bananas are set out to attract the birds. We saw many varieties that we hadn't seen before.

Wonderful hotel in the mountains with a beautiful view of the Arenal Volcano and great breakfast each day!

Had issue with check-in and waited to speak to manager before being refused. Beautiful hotel grounds do not make up for horrendous customer service. Take your business to another nearby hotel.
