Lake Arenal Hotel & Brewery

Brewery in West End of Laguna de Arenal

If you like beer, consider staying at the only hotel (that we're aware of) that has a microbrewery onsite, mixing up the hops and barley to bring you delicious and unusual beers, such as the LAB chili lager and piña blonde. Drink it while feeling the lake breezes and admiring the views at the top-floor restaurant, serving standard pub grub.

The hotel itself has 21 rooms (single/double including breakfast from US$75/95, dorms US$25) with rustic bohemian charm, featuring textured paint jobs and interesting artworks. You'll pay more for lake views and private patios. The hotel and brewery are located just off Route 142, before you reach the village of Tejona.
