Comfortable, good toilets, noise not a problem
This was one of the best hotels we stayed at during our 6 nights in Costa Rica. The room was a comfortable size, and most importantly, the toilet had sufficient flushing power. In Costa Rica you're not supposed to flush toilet paper (there's a waste bin provided next to the toilet for disposing of your paper), and indeed, the toilets can't handle even a bit of paper... which means they often can’t handle natural things more substantial than paper. As minor and ridiculous as this seems, not having a decent toilet can quickly become a major source of stress on a vacation. Toilets aside, the staff were very friendly. The view of the Arenal volcano was great. Rooms on the second floor had a bench to sit on, but unfortunately the bench was on the opposite side of the volcano (the window inside the room faced the volcano). The free breakfast was a generous voucher for breakfast at the restaurant right next door. The pool in the back was nice, but the hot tub was not working when we were there so the temperature was the same as the pool. Other reviewers on complained about the noise, but my husband and I didn't think noise was a problem. (The restaurant next door could be loud during the evening, but it quieted down by the time we went to sleep.) The free WiFi was down one night when we were there, but it was fixed by the next morning. The bathroom and the room itself were very clean, and the bed was just fine. All in all, we were satisfied.

Mediocre at best
This is midway between a hostel and a hotel. It's very minimum. The room does have an AC, but no refrigerator or microwave oven. Beds, a small table and two chairs are all there is in the room.

Descent for the price. It is off the center of town, so quiet in the night, but safe.

Too noisy
It`s a family run hotel. The staff is very very nice but the hotel is on the main street and it`s start to be very very noisy at 5 am. The kids slept thrue it but not us. You also can hear the neighburg like they were in your room. The view is amazing and the staff friendly but if you want quiet don`t book there. Too expensive *$95 for 4*. Sorry for the owners but that`s the truth

Simple, clean place to stay when visiting Arenal
Vista Del Cerro is a small, simple hotel on the road from La Fortuna to Arenal. The room was a bit dim, though clean. The staff, though many of them didn't speak a lot of English, were extremely helpful in setting us up with tickets to go to the hot springs and taxis to take us to the national park and the restaurants in downtown La Fortuna. This is key, because given the hotel's location you'll need a ride to get either place (you could walk into town for dinner, but it's a ways down a dark highway).
