Amazing Volcano Views

In order to better enjoy the sounds of nature, lodging options do not have phones or televisions. The Butterfly Villa, Heliconia House and Tree House have air conditioning, the other cabins do not. Cabins are situated to catch the breeze and have floor and ceiling fans. Guests are welcome to place free local calls and use the free high speed WiFi in our Lava Lizard Restaurant and Bar. All of our cabins are outfitted with comfortable beds, fine linens and pillows, coffee maker, microwave, shampoo/conditioner/soap, and each has amazing views of the Arenal Volcano. We ask for a minimum 3 night stay. Over Christmas/New Years and Easter Week the minimum stay is 5 nights.
