    Superb 9.2 From 46 reviews

    Very Good 8.0
    Know before you go...
    First impression was that Mussaenda rooms are small. Hong Kong small actually. However, as it is situated in a beautiful area with a beautiful pool and friendly staff, wifi, breakfast, etc. If you have a third, just beware it is tight. If you are over 6 ft. your feet you may likely dangle over the bed. That said, if not, the breakfast is very good Costa Rican food and service and as I mentioned the area is very Arenal convenient.

    Good value
    The best thing about this hotel, I didn't even know about - your stay includes entrance to the Natura Park nearby. The included breakfast is at the "soda" down the road. I ordered the Costa Rican typical breakfast and then walked around the park. One of the volunteers showed me where the sloth was and then we saw the rescued crocodiles and the frog and snake exhibits. I walked around the trails for a bit and then enjoyed a plunge in the pool and hot tub before checking out. When I arrived there at night, it was a bit desolate so I wouldn't recommend it if you are staying alone and scared of dark forests. Other than that, the room was spacious and the reception was friendly. The bed was a bit hard, the refrigerated water was a welcome treat ($1/bottle).

    Great stay!
    We had 2 rooms at the Mussaeanda Hotel for 4 family members. Both rooms were very clean and well kept. Allan was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. WiFi was much better in one room than the other but that was not an issue for us. The hot tub was great and we were lucky enough to have views of the top of the volcano from it one day. The included breakfast is delicious with the nicest people serving it. Entrance into the Nature Park is also a fun added bonus.
