In town and good access to restaurantsPosted Dec 31, 2012 on Hotels.com
The staff were pleasant and helpful. Shower was big and water pressure was high. Plenty of hot water!! Small ac unit needs to be left on when ur gone to keep it cool enough. No coffee in am. That would have been a treat

A cool name for a great hotel.Posted Dec 23, 2012
Pros: The staff
Location: Close to the town and attractions
My two girls and I loved our stay at El Volcan. The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful. We were able to book our excursions from the hotel - no problem. It was also in easy walking distance from the town. I'd recommend this hotel to my friends.

Nice Little HotelPosted Apr 9, 2012 on Hotels.com
Close to town. Not the Hilton by any means, but it is a nice little hotel. The owner and staff were very friendly and always willing to help with daily plans. Two small blocks away from the main street that runs through town.

Much Better Than ExpectedPosted Mar 29, 2012 on Hotels.com
This hotel greatly exceeded my expectations! My wife, 2 young teenagers and myself booked it as they could acommodate 4 in a room with 2 Queen beds. The rooms were very clean,shower was very good size with great water pressure and plenty of hot water as well.The manager,Mauricio, was so very helpful and honest that after 3 nights stay he felt like famiry! Mauricio also booked our Baldi Hot Springs day and also the Sky Tram and Zip Line trip thru the office and saved us a considerable sum of money compared to retail rates.The view of the volcano right out the door of the hotel was unbelievable! The hotel is 1/2 block from the City Center Park and directly across the street from the Park was La Parada soda, a 24/7 authentic Tico restaraunt that had excellent food served either off the menu or at the buffet. The prices of the motel and also the food at the soda mentioned were very fair compared to the rest of our 8 day Costa Rican trip. Overall, I must say that this stay was much better than we expected and Mauricio was a true and honest manager that represents the true meaning of Pura Vida. Give them a try,you will not be disappointed

Good place to spend the night after the busy day.Posted Feb 2, 2012
Pros: Friendly staff.
Cons: Vehicle noise at night.
Location: Close to the city center and view of volcano from the hotel.
Hotel is located close to the park and the eating places. Staff is very friendly. But some rooms have vehicle noise problem.

choose others if you have a choicePosted Jan 30, 2012 on Hotels.com
It feels like staying in a basement as most of room don't have a window, or the window is open to the common area and won't have any sun shine coming in even if you open it. The room is very small and if you don't put " please clean it " sign out they won't clean it. Air conditioning barely works and TV can't be smaller.

highly recommend staying herePosted Jan 24, 2012 on Hotels.com
I didnt expect much for the price - pleasantly surprised...real hot water (not the electric 'suicide showers'), a/c, clean, conveneint/safe location, and fast WiFi. Great deal, and the manager is incredibly nice/helpful...do yourself a favor and stay here. Can't heat the deal.
