Booked on a recommendation of a friend and could not be happier. Beautiful room overlooking the rain forest facing Arenal. At night you can hear the sounds of the rain forest and the entire property smelled like a florist shop or green house from all of the native flowers on the property. Staff was wonderful. We came in the beginning of November so the busy season was just starting but we only saw one other couple the whole time. It was like we had the whole resort to ourselves.

We had a very pleasant stay here. The resort grounds were stunning with beautiful landscaping and foliage especially around the hot springs. We were here during low season and were often the only guests at the hot springs.
The staff was excellent, everyone was very friendly and helpful. Edward at the activity desk helped us book tours and also provided good suggestions on restaurants in town and nearby places to see.
The restaurants at the resort looked nice but were deserted most of the time - maybe because it was low season. They were a little overpriced and we did not travel to Costa Rica to eat pizza and sushi. Perhaps if they had a more casual Costa Rican restaurant it would be more popular.
Overall had a great time and would suggest this resort to anyone looking for a relaxing beautiful place to stay.
A truly unique rainforest experience. The hotel is set in lush, beautiful tropical gardens with many birds. Cabanas are comfortable and private (although the bed could be updated). Staff are wonderful. The sounds of the jungle at night are magical. The restaurant meals are good and very affordable. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway or a quiet family vacation.
Fantastic location, gorgeous views. Recommend a 3rd floor room from best view. Included breakfast was delicious. All staff were friendly and willing to help plan activities. The room itself was clean and comfortable. Very nice swimming pool and hot tub, daily happy hour at the swim up bar and a second happy hour at the indoor bar. If I am ever back in Costa Rica I would definitely stay here again!

Villas Vilma is a nice place located just outside La Fortuna, in the direction of the Arenal Volcano and all the main attractions. Stayed there only 2 nights, and arrived without any sightseeing arrangements. The family who runs the place (sister and brother, I believe) was very helpful in making recommendations for things to see in the area, making same-day reservations for us for a tour of the Hanging Bridges in the Jungle, helping us find transportation to our next destination, and recommending restaurants. The place looks nice - as others said, bungalows with a hammock and a coffee table + love seat on a small patio. The indoors is not much to brag about - but it's simple, clean, and has air conditioned. The wifi worked well (and it's free). The pool and hot tub were nice looking, but there are a lot of bushes around so we always found leaves, flowers (and some bugs) floating around. Not a big deal but it made it look unkempt a bit although I saw someone cleaning it daily. The breakfast was simple but freshly cooked (coffee, orange juice, gallo pinto, peanut butter and jam, and eggs) - good way to start the day.
