Since this hotel is not located in the center of La Fortuna it can be expensive to travel to activities in the town, however the remote, quaint feeling (coupled with the views) of this hotel is well worth staying here! The staff is incredibly helpful, friendly and accommodating. They spent over an hour helping us choose activities in the area... More

Quiet place to stay outside of where the action is. The food at the restaurant was decent...not too bad. We went for a little walk past the hotel towards some quiet neighborhood which was nice. The best part was the pool with incredible views of the lake and volcano! Rooms are 3/5. Food 3/5. Staff 3/5. Views 5/5!
