We arrived following a recommendation from a friend. We love this friend now. This place is amazing. The rooms are clean, the shower has a powerful hot stream, the beds are big, and the AC works. You get a good view of the volcano from the balcony, and, since the hotel is on the outskirts of the city, it is... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2nd floor room with a balcony view of the Arenal volcano - $45/night. We were very pleased with the quality of the room which included a/c and a small refrigerator. The outside communal kitchen area was very pleasant, clean and well stocked and offered a great opportunity to talk with other guests. Our... More

There were 3 of us and we got a huge 5 bedroom room with private bathroom and AC, fridge and TV to ourselves, for $60 per night. Balcony with view of the volcano. Everything was super clean. The kitchen was well stocked and kept tidy and clean. Free breakfast was actually pretty decent, eggs, cereals, toast, fruit, juice and coffee.... More

Myself and my three friends had an awesome stay here. the staff were exceptionally helpful and prompt in all of their services. rooms were clean, air conditioned, and breakfast was great. location was also good but I guess it's a small town so it's hard not to have that pegged. the hostel next door was also fun to visit, but...

We stayed at the hotel for three nights in La Fortuna and we loved the view outside our room of the volcano (although it did have cloud over the top all the time!) The garden by the hotel is nice and there's lots of lovely birds that you can see whilst eating breakfast. The self service breakfast had bread for... More

We stayed here three nights. The hotel is reasonably priced and very clean. You can chose a room on the main floor or one with a balcony. We chose the balcony where we could sit in the rocking chairs and admire the view of the volcano. There's an outdoor kitchen where you can go and prepare your own breakfast. There... More

This place would be great if it was a bit further from the main road through town. It has an amazing view of the volcano, powerful A/C and good hot water. The rooms are average motel decor but the balconies are outstanding so you can sit and take in the view. My gripe with the place is like most Central... More
