Hotel Grano de Oro

Hotel Grano de Oro Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This former Victorian mansion turned intimate, 40-room hotel features large, homey rooms, a rooftop Jacuzzi, and a renowned fine dining restaurant. Antiques, tinkling fountains, wood floors and artful flower arrangements make it feel like you might be staying in the home of a wealthy colonial-era plantation owner. But it lacks the features a larger hotel -- there's no business center, fitness center, pool or full spa, though massage services are available.
Arenal Observatory Lodge

Arenal Observatory Lodge Rating: 3.0 Pearls

If you ever wanted to live Jurassic Park (without eaten-by-dinosaurs part), this mid-range property might help fulfill that dream. This all-inclusive, 864-acre, 48-room property on a mountain has some of the best views in the area of both the lake and the volcano, and allows guests to be immersed in the rainforest, with its birds, monkeys, and snakes. The spacious, homey, slightly rustic rooms have commanding views of the surrounding trees -- which may help guests forget that there are no TVs or ACs. The hotel's the only one in the area actually inside the national park, and is also among the most remote and hardest to get to from La Fortuna. It's hard to find comparable properties in the area, but it may be worth considering Arenal Lodge, which also has great views and a rainforest setting.
