Staff was great and knowledgeable..breakfast (free) was delicious. And the view from the upgraded suites were amazing as they faced Arenal Volcano. The grounds (flowers and plants etc. were beautiful too)

The unspoilt view to the volcano is so much worth the few minutes walk to the centre. The cabin in the peaceful setting was by far the best we had in 4 weeks in Costa Rica.


The hostel isnt right in dead center of La Fortuna but it really is only a 5 minute walk which was perfect as we didnt want to stay in the midst of it all. The hostel or "Villas" were immaculate. Its a much quieter location and the grounds are beautiful. You get your own Villas and they are very nice and clean. The hostel has a pool and hot tub which was a great perk. The staff were very friendly and helped you in everything whether it was directions or your tours. One of my favorite hostels.


The cabins were really nice. We had cabin #22 which was more spacious and more private and had a great view of the volcano. The walls are quite thin, but the neighbors were quiet at night, so there was no problem. We always had hot water and the air conditioning was working fine. The internet was a bit flaky since our cabin was not close enough to the reception. The free breakfast in the morning was great. We really enjoyed our stay at Villas Vista Arenal and would stay at this hotel again.
