Lonely Planet review

If you want to stay in the area, Arenal Lodge is 400m west of the Laguna de Arenal, at the top of a steep 2.5km ascent, though the entire lodge is awash with views of Arenal and the surrounding cloud forest. Standard rooms are just that, but junior suites are spacious, tiled and have wicker furniture, a big hot-water bathroom and a picture window or balcony with volcano views. The lodge also has a Jacuzzi, a billiards room, a sophisticated restaurant (mains US$8 to US$18), complimentary mountain bikes and private stables.

Our independent authors have visited Hotel Arenal Lodge and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Around the Dam.
