Hotel Arenal Jireh

Destination: Arenal

Hotel Arenal Jireh is in the center of downtown La Fortuna where you can stroll through the park, visit the church or dine at any number of small restaurants and sodas – or you can skip all that and enjoy Jireh's pools before planning an adventure with its in-house tour operator.

Jireh has 10 rooms spread over three floors with views of its pools, Arenal volcano or downtown La Fortuna. The rooms are clean and decorated with small contemporary pictures. Doubles, $65, include cable TV, WiFi, A/C, a mini fridge, lockbox, bed-side lighting and private bathrooms – breakfast is an extra $5 on the room rate.

Breakfast at the Gecko

For guests, Gecko's Gourmet Deli serves either a typical Costa Rican or continental breakfast. However, I recommend guests use their $5.00 credit toward Gecko's regular breakfast menu, which includes breakfast burritos and cream-cheese stuffed French toast.

Service and Amenities

Out back, there's a small garden with two pools that make a nice reprieve from the noise of Fortuna's city streets. For tours, Costa Rica Ascent is the in-house tour operator located right beside the front desk. The staff at the front desk is particularly helpful when it comes to Fortuna's restaurants and bars.

Our Take

  • Best location in town
  • Affordable prices
  • The light switches behind the bed are a well-kept secret (though I'm not sure it's meant to be)
  • No deluxe rooms (despite what their website says)
