3-4 min ride on main hwy outside of town. Cool, bright paint scheme in cute bungalows, perfect for a base to explore area. Each has small balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the birds, read, and thunderstorms watching (July). Coffee maker in room with fridge. 2 breakfast choices come with fruit and juice: - eggs & ham,toast, no beans/rice or - eggs, […] beans and rice. Coffee is so flavorful I did not miss my daily British cuppa!! Owners are very accommodating. Asked for eggs fried for a change since typical is scrambled with beans and rice, and jam for the plain toast -- tipped them well at the end of the stay :) Borrowed umbrellas for rainy season / torrential rain the day we hiked. They gave us some milk for our in-room coffee as we forgot to buy at store. FYI's -- Wifi seems to cut out around 10 pm and 'hot' water on dial seemed best at 1-2 o'clock position and lasted for a quickie rinse. Bought a soap at the local store in town for 20 cents (as well as the coffee to take home 4 bucks /12 oz) for our 4 day stay with 4 bodies to soap; the hotel ones are the size of a quarter which is ample for an overnight. Pool and spa are ice cold -- too bad they cannot tap the local thermal pools ;) They actually said they are working on it so maybe the next visit! Overall a very enjoyable stay and I would return.

"Cozy, few-frills stay"
The staff was very helpful, and breakfast each morning was delicious. The hotel is a few miles from La Fortuna, and they do not serve meals after breakfast, so you will need a car to get to food and other attractions. My wife and I had a wonderful time. Make sure you know if you are coming during the rainy season - we didn't see the top of the volcano […] during our 3 night stay. I highly recommend it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel - safe and beautiful surroundings"
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was large enough for four and it was very clean. The only negative was that the mattress was hard, but other than that, no complaints. We also liked that this hotels was set back from the road. Some of the other comparable hotels were right on the road and right next to another hotel. Each bungalow […] had privacy and a nice view. Breakfast was very good, fresh fruit, eggs and toast. The surroundings are pretty with lots of birds around. We also felt very safe on the property. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Excellent location overlooking the volcano. Nice clean bungalow in good taste. The hotel ground gives you the feeling of country atmosphere. Great breakfast. Staff were very nice and helpful. Must visit the town of La Fortuna and the Hot Sprigs.
"Simple room with balcony facing Arenal and very helpful staff"
07/31/14 Martine C Baltimore, Maryland
This hotel is a little way out of la Fortuna luckily, so it is quiet, and the rooms are bungalows with balconies facing the Arenal. Rooms are a little dark, but clean and well kept. Probably very nice under the sun, but a little depressing when it rains. Staff very helpful and friendly, and a very nice breakfast is included.
"Clean and quiet with a view"
07/25/14 Kim B Brooklyn, New York
The grounds and rooms at Hotel Miradas were very clean. It's quiet and a bit removed from the hyper-tourism of Fortuna which is nice. A car is highly recommended as you'll likely need to drive to town for food or nearby activities.
"Bungalow next to Volcano Arenal"
07/24/14 TucanC2014 Bern, Switzerland
Very helpful staff, charming bungalow, clean, with great view to the volcano, only about 5 minutes away from Baldi Hot Springs, about 10' to la Fortuna. Go to Lava Lounge for dinner/drinks, its a relaxed place to be

"Affordable option near the volcano"
07/09/14 Vanessa C San Diego
We stayed here for 1 night as a good alternative to the $400 a night hotels. It was basic but clean and quite. The fresh made breakfast was a nice addition to the stay as well. The free hot springs were about a 5 minute drive too.
"A Volcanic Place"
07/07/14 Robert A Hobe Sound, Florida
The cottages were clean and comfortable, the pool refreshing, the breakfasts delicious, the view peaceful and rustic, and the volcano, which was revealed after the morning mist, majestic. The Baldi Hot Springs were a magnificent experience.
"All around nice place to stay."
07/06/14 Paul W Brandon, Canada
Stayed here a few nights on our last trip to LA Fortuna. Would recommend it, good value, clean, great breakfast to get you going in the morning. Owners were on hand and very friendly. Would stay there again with out a doubt.
"Luxury cabina in Arenal area."
07/04/14 Jennifer H Woodstock
We were pleasantly surprised to find our room even better than the pictures posted! Breakfast was excellent and the owner went out of her way to arrange a birthday cake for our son. They even let us use the dining area complete with plates and free coffee. A wonderful, relaxing, beautiful place geared toward enjoying the volcano views.
"Amazing little bungalows!"
06/26/14 Emily G
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights, not having anything booked ahead of time. There are many accommodations along the road towards the main town, but don't overlook little Miradas! It is so tranquil and the grounds are kept beautifully. The bungalows sleep comfortably (there was a kingsized bed and a twin) and the washrooms are very clean (hot water every morning and a large walk-in shower). There are patios that overlook the volcano and breakfast is served every morning. I would recommend this to anyone, it's a great place for families and has amazing value. Our stay here couldn't have been more perfect, we loved it!
