Driving south through Liberia, watch for the quiet signage in front of the hotel on OPPOSITE side of highway. Continue close to a mile in order to make the u-turn to go back north to La Arena. Watch VERY carefully for the one, steep driveway the fabulous highway department left them as an entrance. (They are suing.) But Arena is worth it, especially if you like to swim! Family-built & operated.

For an overnight stay, this place is decent. The people were friendly and helpful. Only real criticism, they advertise the pool, but it is poorly maintained. At the price, we were not expecting any luxuries, but when I read that the pool existed, we thought that we might use it. I suggest deleting any reference to the pool until the maintenance improves.

We love Dwight, the owner. He made our stay comfortable, friendly and like a home away from home. His English and Spanish are impeccable. We enjoyed our first visit so much we booked another stay. Overall a great experience for a very fair price.

Fair to ok

This was a stay for one night after arriving in on a late flight. The room was reasonably clean but the shower backed up quickly and the pool in the hotel's pictures was tiny and green with algae. Ok for a quick, inexpensive over night stay but nothing special.

Hotel quick stop

Posted Mar 21, 2018
Pros: Convenience
Cons: It is unfortunate that a 6 km detour is required to cross over the highway to access the hotel when coming from the airport.
Location: Easy access to the centre of Liberia.
The hotel was a cheap and convenient stop close to Liberia's airport on the way to Monteverde. It was well priced for the level of amenities. The owner was very welcoming and helpful.

Great welcome

Posted Feb 16, 2018
La Arena is a very well presented, clean and tidy motel. Host Dwight super friendly and helpful. Room clean with A/C and comfy bed. Secure UNDER COVER parking😊😊😊 A couple of downers: Some noise from the highway. Woken at 4am with a yapping dog. Difficult to fully darken our room...not a concern for everybody of course.
