    Great hotel. Only 5 guest rooms so it's a very quiet and relaxing environment

    Mussaenda Hotel & Gardens, La Fortuna
    Very nice small, new place - there are only 5 rooms now - with a plan to expand to 15 -20 rooms. The pool and jacuzzi were very welcome at the end of a day hiking near Arenal volcano. The free breakfast is ok too. You definitely need a car or some transport - since it is several kilometers from La Fortuna and not walkable to any restaurants. glad we stayed and would go back.

    This was the best find ever. Very private and right off the road. Breakfast was excellent. The staff was great. The whole setting was great with the pool and hot tube surround by beautiful gardens. If you are coming to Arenal a must place to stay for an inexpensive experience.

    Highly Recommend
    Excellent service & Oasis. Cecilia was a fantastic host at a family owned Hotel & Conservation area where they have several species of frogs, snakes and 3 rescued Crocodiles lirerally in their backyard. Not to worry though...You are safe! As it's fully enclosed.. There is also a butterly enclosure area that you can walk through with the most amazing colours you've ever seen. They only opened a few months ago so everything is new in the rooms and Very clean and reasonable pricing You are surrounded by magnificent beauty amd a gorgeous waterfall in their pool with a huge hot tub overlooking the volcano. Simply stunning. Beautiful private rooms , great landscape , 10 seconds away from the Arenal Natural Springs and 5 mins from restaurants and town by car or taxi.
