Simple but comfortable lodge in a great location overlooked by Arenal volcano. There are two pools, and a range of outdoor activities on offer.
The simple Volcano Lodge with first class views is surrounded by dense tropical rainforest, looking out towards the spectacular cone of Arenal volcano.
The modern guest rooms are set around two swimming pools and a pleasant garden, and are comfortable with plenty of natural light. Each guest room has a private bathroom and a terrace, and many enjoy outstanding views of Arenal. There is also a spa, offering massages and facials, and two Jacuzzis, while the al fresco restaurant is nicely situated beside the pool with the volcano rising imposingly above.
The hotel offers many adventurous excursions including hikes to waterfalls, kayaking, river rafting, horse riding, canyoning and quad bike rides.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
"Volcano Lodge Arenal was great. Only thing is: it's rather far from the centre, so you don't get much choice in terms of restaurants or shopping. With young kids, this is not ideal."RD, Archway
Wonderful garden location which attracted many birds and butterflies. Restaurant was good with helpful staff and good service.GW, Winchester
