The room was perfect, lots of space, comfortable bed, big bathroom, fast Internet, ceiling fan, etc. it has an incredible swimming pool (which I discovered by myself, since the staff didn't even mention they had a swimming pool). It is a pity the staff cared so little about the clients.

I have stayed there for 3 nights. It is loud due to its location right on a street and there is no possibility to close the windows of the standard room. There were ants and fleas in my bed. The bathroom was full of mold. They don t offer breakfast but the good thing is you are right in the... More

Stayed for 2 nights never saw the pool. Missed the orientation of the hotel. Need to go back to see this amazing pool. It sounds great. Lovely staff who looked after us well. Where's that pool though?!

Hotel is located on the edge of town so nice and quiet with the pool backing onto the nice jungle clad river. Hotel... More

When I first walked into the hotel and I saw the pool area, I thought that the rooms would be beyond my budget. To my pleasant surprise the owner gave me a super reasonable discount rate. I ended up staying here for 2 months. I loved it. I know for a fact that no other hotel in the city could... More

Very decent and clean hostel/motel in the centre of La Fortuna. Just as advertised, basic and affordable, but with a very nice garden/poolarea. No breakfast included but there are a lot of nice places around. We found the stad very knowledgeable and friendly.

My family stayed here two nights while visiting the attractions around Arenal. The room had a balcony with a view of Arenal. It was clean, the a/c worked, the showers were hot, and the room was generally acceptable given the price. We paid around 60 per night. I will not likely be staying here again because of the noise. It's... More

We only had an economy room recommend upgrading, needed updating especially the bed really uncomfortable. Better places to stay in la fortuna like arenal hostel lodge. However the pool area was immaculate.

Our room was clean, and had a small desk. Pretty short list of features, but it fit the budget. There is a swimming pool which looked clean. The manager did not exactly seem hostile, but plainly should be in another line of work. The Mayol is located a block off the main highway and the quiet central location is a... More
