Hotel Castillo del Arenal is located in the province of Alajuela, near the majestic Arenal Volcano. This area is renowned for its volcano and the grand Lake Arenal, famous for its outstanding wind surfing conditions. The small, surrounding community of La Fortuna offers a variety of conveniences such as bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets.
Visited and adored by eco-adventurers, the Arenal area boasts a number of exciting outdoor activities. Naturally, the Arenal National Park is a great way to explore this immense volcano alongside a trained guide. Visitors can also experience the peacefulness and wildlife as they float down the Penas Blancas River on a boat ride or spice it up with an adrenaline rush down the Pacuare River on a white water rafting adventure. Also popular are the water activities on Arenal Lake, horseback riding to waterfalls and the canopy tour through the nature reserve.
The family owned and operated Hotel Castillo del Arenal is conveniently located to provide volcano views. The restaurant is set on a hill providing a beautiful view of Lake Arenal as you enjoy a homemade meal and a rich cup of Costa Rican Coffee. The covered terrace offers tranquility as well as opportunities such as bird watching, taking in the surrounding foliage, volcano, lake and much more. The cabins are set in lush greenery, offering double and or single beds, a TV, and a private bathroom with hot water.

Feedback from Travelers
Nice hotel, as described. Staff was friendly. Best part was amazing EcoZoo just up the road within walking distance - best reptile displays I've ever seen. Of note: There is a gate which closes at night so if you need to leave early, special arrangements need to be made.
Beautiful location, great rooms and lovely service. Only comment is that the food was quite expensive and I would have liked to see more local dishes on the menu. As we did not have a car it could have been good to have been able to rent bikes.
The owners are excellent. Very gentle and polite.
