Breathtaking HotelPosted Aug 20, 2017
Pros: We enjoyed all the different excursions that you can do and all the animals that they have in and around the hotel. We liked that it is in the forest
Location: The hotel is up in the mountains. We went on a lot of different excursions that you can only do in the mountains. We went zip lining and much more.
Hi. My name is Andrew and I took my girlfriend to Costa Rica for the first time. This was my third time in Costa Rica. I have always stayed the Lands and Love Hotel because it is in the mountains and it has a lot of different and exciting excursions that you can pick from. It is a nice and quiet place to be. The hotel has cats, dogs, geese, ducks, fish, horses, sheep and goats. They have very nice friendly staff who is always willing to do whatever you need or want. We enjoyed our trip because it got us away from the New York City hustle and bustle. We would definitely go back.

One very interesting experience!Posted Feb 24, 2014 on Orbitz
WAY too many dogs - nice motivation (animal rescue) but they are up to 145 at the moment! Very tasty, well prepared and fresh vegetarian food in their restaurant. VERY poor quality bed linens. But the rooms were impeccably clean. Gorgeous jungle around the property. More than an hour drive from Arenal. Would recommend only w/ consideration of the limitations.

An ok hotelPosted Jan 26, 2013
This hotel is just ok. Our room smelled like mold and I didn't feel too comfortable.

no love at allPosted Jan 2, 2012
Pros: natural surroundings
We had reserved two rooms for the four of us. They put us in rooms #33 & #34 which are adjacent to the reception desk. Throughout the night and well into the morning the night staff were playing foosball, slamming doors, yelling loudly, and riding carts like children along the corridor. We stepped outside and asked them to please be quiet as we were trying to sleep but to no avail. In the morning the managers only reply to my complaint was that they were booked full. These rooms should never be rented out to guests. Barking dogs during the day were also annoying. That said, the food was good and the grounds nice.

Lands in Love hotel Costa RicaPosted Dec 28, 2011 on Hotels
The large property of the hotel is very well kept and the rooms are barely decent and expensive . The 100% vegetarian restaurant is overly priced in dollards instead of the local money and the food is quite oily . We found a lovely restaurant a few miles away serving great dishes of fish and meat for half the price of their vegetarian lasagna . The hotel location was too remote . if you enjoy the very muddy rain forest , plenty of mosquito bites and some canopy tours activities in the middle of nowhere it is a place for you . Also we stayed in December during the dry season we got quite a bit of rain and the sky was mostly overcast due to the local rainforest climate . Expect a lot of driving to get to more interesting parts of Costa Rica

Not your typical hotelPosted Mar 10, 2011 on Hotels
This hotel was located 1 km from La Fortuna, base site for exploration of Arenal volcano. Actually it is about 50 km fromo La Fortuna, on a twisty road. The place is whimsical and a little quirky. Someone like to paint flowers and other things on just about everything. There's lots of places to walk, lots of animals around (horses, cats, dogs, sheep). Rooms have beautiful views out over a canyon. It is in a cloud forest, so it can be on the cloudy and cool side. The Israeli owners didn't seem too hospitable - I got grilled just for asking for ice. The hotel restaurant was way overpriced for Costa Rica. There's a great restaurant just up the road with food for a fraction of the price...but you really need a car to get there unless you like lots of walking. Breakfast, included, was very good.

Nice natural surroundings, bad customer servicePosted May 5, 2015
Natural surroundings are very nice. Adventure tours seem to be great and there are many nature trails that worth being visited. Customer service was a bit rough. At arrival, we were said we did not have any reservation (which was actually not true). They believed us until I showed the expedia Booking Confirmation to them and then we were asked to wait. We had to wait at the reception desk for at least half an hour until they confirmed our booking. In the meanwhile we did not get any particular attention. I had high expectations about their vegetarian food, but ingredients are in the range from average to cheap, so the food is not that good. During my stay I met two people that are kind. Everyone else was quite rough. Services and infrastructure are more like a hostel quality, but room rates are more like a hotel.
