La Casona

Budget travelers will find five comfortable rooms in La Casona, our original family farmhouse and an ideal place for groups or individual travelers. Four of the rooms have one queen-sized bed with partial views of the Arenal Volcano; the fifth room has two queen beds and a bunk bed, with views of Lake Arenal. La Casona is located about 500 meters (0.3 miles) from the main hotel building down a moderate slope. The five rooms share two full bathrooms and a large common sitting room, as well as a spacious front porch overlooking the Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal.
