Beautiful, exquisite, friendly! We cannot say enough about this wonderful hotel. We stayed there for 10 days and they made every single day better than the day before. They helped us with excursions, getting cabs into town and arranging transportation to and from the San Jose airport. The grounds are absolutely exquisite. Make sure and get a room with a private thermal spa.

The Volcano Lodge Hotel is next-level amazing. Perfect location for exploring everything the area has to offer. Went on a hanging-bridges tour, swam in the La Fortuna waterfall and did a volcano hike. The front desk staff and restaurant staff at the lodge are all courteous and helpful. The thermal springs here are next level. I stayed in the superior room with a private spring in the back. After dinner each night I would go to the community spring (with the swim up bar) and it was amazing. Afterwards I would return to my room and continue relaxing. Great food at the restaurant, and awesome cocktails. This is a dream property and was the perfect hotel to start my two week trip through Costa Rica. All the tours I booked picked me up from the hotel so I didn't need a car to explore the area. Top notch staff, next level hot-springs, one of the best properties Ive ever stayed at!
