Lake Arenal Hotel & Brewery

Hwy. 142, 8 km (5 miles) north of Tilarán, on the way to Nuevo Arenal, Tilarán, Guanacaste, 50801, Costa Rica

This property overlooking Lake Arenal has large rooms with natural-wood ceilings and some nice perks that include its own on-site microbrewery, a swimming pool, tennis courts, a Jacuzzi, and a skate park. Simple rooms have either garden or lake views, with Minoan-inspired frescoes, painted cement floors, and local artwork. Superior units have living rooms and tiny fireplaces. The glass-walled restaurant dishes up pasta and seafood, with dairy and produce coming straight from its farm. This place caters heavily to university students, so if you're looking for peace and quiet, you might want to stay elsewhere. The hotel has changed ownership several times over the past decade—many people refer to it by previous names like Hotel Tilawa, Lakeview Hotel, and Volcano Brewing Company Hotel.
