Recent Volcano Arenal reviews

  • Spectacular!

    "After touring most of beautiful Costa Rica in it's ''summer" months, we were dusty and hot and were overjoyed by the spectacular beauty and cool, crisp nighttime air at this beautiful property. What a joy to wake up to trilling out countless varieties of birds, and as my traveling companion is a birder, he was overjoyed. The house was cozy and well-appointed, the pool was sparkling, and we love the sound of the howler monkeys in the trees. The owners were so pleasant and very helpful when we needed information about local tours - we loved the boat trip."

  • This is the way to enjoy Arenal

    "My fiance and I stayed in the Enchanted Cottage during our Costa Rica vacation. We had a great time and Tom & Maria couldn't have been more helpful. The location is about 50-60 minutes outside of La Fortuna depending on who you're driving behind--the roads are only 1 lane, very curvy, and people like to take their sweet time. The Enchanted Cottage is located on the grounds of the Arenal Springs Villas. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we finally saw toucans on our last day there after looking every morning. The cottage was very clean and private and has a basic kitchen so you can prepare your own meals--we got VERY tired of eating out all of the time by our 8th day in CR. If you do choose to go out to eat, we really suggest Moya's. Great food! Tom can recommend all the places to try and what to avoid. If you want to be in La Fortuna, this may not be the place for you. However, if you want to get away from all the touristy stuff and off the beaten path a bit, this is a wonderful place. Lake Arenal is gorgeous and La Fortuna is not far when you feel like being a tourist."

  • Wonderful Place to Relax

    "We began our 8 night journey to Costa Rica with a 3 night stay in Casa Grande at the Arenal Springs Villas by the Lake. We loved so many aspects about our stay but I will highlight the following-amazing view, well-appointed and very large home, super accommodating owners, and a comforting sense of security. Tom and Maria were gracious and helpful hosts at all points in the pre-arrival and during our stay. I would highly recommend!"

  • Awsome stay

    "We stayed at the villa for the better part of a week and really enjoyed the whole time. We came from two weeks on the coast and the change to the lush greenery and even some rain showers was very welcome. The Villa itself was as listed and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. We saw more birds there than anywhere else and that is one of the reasons we came. We also drove around to the many different sights and enjoyed them all. Glen was a great host and gave really good suggestion as where to eat and things to do. The trails around the Villa were great and clearly marked by the painted rock lady bugs. Great touch. We were also able to feed the birds with local fruit and enjoyed watching them. Thanks again Glen!"
