Standard Room

Spacious and comfortable Standard Rooms at Arenal Observatory Lodge & Spa all feature two queen-sized beds, a private bathroom, a coffeemaker, a room safe, sitting chairs, and a writing table. Some Standard Rooms are located in the main hotel building and overlook the gorgeous Costa Rican rainforest or the impressive Arenal Volcano from their private balconies, while others are located 500 meters (0.3 miles) from the main hotel building, down a moderate slope, and feature terraces with striking views of Lake Arenal.

See what our guests say:

“We stayed in a standard room in the main lodge building. I found it very spacious and comfortable with two queen beds, tables, and chairs, desk, lots of shelves, great big bathroom with the sink area separate from the toilet and shower. The security safe and coffee maker were very welcome. And I loved sitting out on the balcony listening to the tall, whispering pine trees swaying in the wind and gazing at dense green rainforest. I could hear toucans and howler monkeys in the distance, and every afternoon a coati would wander past below.”
