We only spent one night here, on our way from the North back to Alejuela. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms in back by the pool offer a pleasant get-away from the highway. Were traveling with another couple and so we had a long dinner at the Pizzeria, even played cards. The staff was fun to interact... More

We were pleasantly surprised at how lovely this tiny one story hotel was. When we were dropped off I was just expecting a clean bed, warm shower and not much more! Then they took us to our lil bungalow style room in the back...with the pool right outside the gorgeous spacious room!!!! The street is lined with tons of restaurants... More

Great little hotel to come back to at the end of a long, active day in the Fortuna area. Breakfast is pretty standard. The Tang is great. The attached restaurant is ok for dinner, but there's better food (and bang for your buck) close by. Showers weren't always hot, but that's ok. We had one issue in that the hotel... More

Overall, a very great hotel. Our double room was perfect and spacious. The location was great considering we had a car and were easily able to get around to activities in town as well as further away. The stay included complimentary breakfast, which was delicious, but the same every morning. We went to town to celebrate New Years; the locals... More

This is not expensive small hotel near volcano Arenal. We paid 65$ per night for two adult and one child, breakfast was included (breakfast was good). Shower was not good, because heater for water was directly on the pipe and worked not properly. Not so far from hotel, you can find park with different kind of local animals, hot spring... More

We've spent there only one night when we chose a trip under Arenal Volcano. Location is ok, the area is really quiet, but for the city centre you need to take a taxi for 4$. Excellent staff, very helpful and polite. Great coffee in the hotel's restaurant. The room was big and comfortable. Small but very nice garden with pool,... More

It's clean and quiet. They've gone to some effort to make the rooms interesting, with the walls painted funky colors and lots of art hanging on them. The adjacent restaurant is comfortable; I particularly enjoyed a salad I had there my first night. The water pressure in the toilet was low. There are a few other restaurants in walking distance,...

We stayed at Hotel Vagabondo for 7 nights at the beginning of January. At the beginning of our stay, we had a very small room containing a full sized bed and a twin sized bed with barely enough room to walk around them, and no room to walk in between them. However, the room was clean, with A/C and a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights and had the best time. It's a 20 minute walk from the town square and has a fantastic view of the volcano. It's a great location because we were so close to everything but had a more private quite atmosphere.The breakfast is sooooo good and they had a few options which... More

Really nice, small and quiet hotel with pool and great rooms. If you choose a "tipical breakfast"- I guarantee you will not regret it. Really nice and clean place, great staff and good prices and you have a very good view to Arenal volcano from here! Also- if you are planing to by a food in the shop- the big... More
