10/10 Exceptional

We really enjoyed our time at the Arenal Country Inn. The property is located ~2 km from La Fortuna town centre, and can be walked as it is quite flat with sidewalks. Easy check in, comfortable room (on the small side) with two very comfy beds, small fridge, table and two chairs and bathroom with a large shower. Ample hot water. Outside is a bench and porch light for sitting outside and listening to the birds. The pool was the perfect temperature and clean. Breakfast was delicious and served in a historical, covered cattle pen (sounds kooky but it was lovely). We enjoyed our time and would recommend to anyone hitting La Fortuna!

Beautiful setting, away from the center of town but still close. And far away from the massive (by comparison) hotels NW of La Fortuna proper, which is what we wanted. Amazing view of Arenal from the pool area. Nice and quiet. Would definitely stay here again

8/10 Very good

Great for a stop and go
Very nice atmosphere. The host was very accommodating. The rooms were small but worked for the purpose of stopping in, showering, sleeping and leaving. We stayed for 4 days. The pool was nice and the breakfast was awesome. Well located just outside of town. Literally a 2 min drive in. Internet was sketchy .. don’t depend on it. Overall a low amenity place with no restaurant other than the breakfast they serve.
