We stayed here for 2 nights (originally supposed to be 3) during our honeymoon in December 2015. Our flight was delayed a day getting here due to weather in the US, and the hotel was very understanding and did not charge us for the night we ended up missing. We arrived in the dark with our rental SUV - it... More

This is a great budget friendly bed and breakfast. The property is family run and very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is great. Cabins are very clean, there's AC and plenty of room. The cabin seemed like they were fairly new and in good condition. The property is tucked away uphill and surrounded in nature, much more peaceful than being... More

We stayed in this delightful little lodge for three nights. For starters, it sits on a beautiful and peaceful property tucked away from the hustle and bustle of La Fortuna. Our cab ride to the city was 3,000 colones (a little under $6), which we happily paid to be away from town. They start serving breakfast at 7:30, so we... More

My family and I stayed at Brisas for 4 days in October. (We had the place to ourselves, as well!) The rooms are very clean, newer, and the property is gorgeous. We stayed in cabin 2, and the view of the volcano is THE best. (You can lay in the bed and look out the window at the volcano!) There... More

First the good: The cabanas are fairly new, very clean and very comfortable. We had excellent hot water for the showers. The beds were nice to sleep on, not rocks like in some other places. There was air conditioning available, but no screens on the windows, sore member that flying bugs may enter at will. The grounds are gorgeous and... More

Since the beginning the staff was very friendly and the directions on how to arrive were easy to follow. Upon arriving everything was explained easily and even arranged times for breakfast which was delicious. Upon entering the room, everything was perfectly clean and beautiful. Great shower to regain energy for the following day. A hammock to relax at evening and... More

Beautiful view and gardens. Nice family that runs the place. Rustic but with nice ammenities like clean sheets, clean surroundings, hot water, wifi,etc. Very nice breakfast with a flare for the rustic surroundings. As mentioned in title, great place to see the sites around La Fortuna but is not luxurious. I would describe it as for "Air Condition Gipsies". We... More

I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel. Allen is a great host and his family is warm and welcoming. The grounds are stunning and you cannot beat the view of the volcano from your front porch. It's a bit out of town, but just a $12 taxi ride round trip. Hot water, comfortable beds, friendly owners, and a... More

The ground were extremely well kept. You need to taxi to go into town though. Approx taxi ride about 10 mins. Great view of the volcano! We walked to the waterfalls from the hotel. Walking at a good pace it took 45 mins.
