Visited in September 2012, they have been open less than a year and it was dry season. First, you have to know that Costa Rica has two Craft Breweries, totaling 4 different beers, and Volcano has them all, so that is why selection gets top marks. This is a very chill place and they have an all inclusive packages that is between $90-$110 per day, yes, all you can drink and eat.

Food is farm fresh local, try the Jalapeno Chicken. I knock of half a point as their cheese quesadilla was not good, but everything else was awesome.

The view of the lake is amazing, so tranquil up there. Love that they bring you samples of beer as soon as you sit down.

Beer, they make two beers, I loved the Witches Rock Pale Ale, best beer in Costa Rica. After drinking Imperials this will feel like a hop bomb, but it is not, It's a smooth butter beer with a nice hop note (they use cascade). The Gato Malo is a nice dark ale, easy to drink, light bodied and a little sweet. The staff are nice as can be and will give you great pointers on where you want to visit around the area.
