Arenal is an expensive place, and given that, the hotel was pretty good for its price. The whole hotel area has a nice feel to it because it has a huge lawn area for parking, nice pool, and hammocks. I traveled with my boyfriend and we really weren't looking for something luxurious at all, but the rooms weren't even up... More

Clean, comfortable rooms w/small front patios, free wi-fi connection, tasty breakfasts for $5.00/pp offered in an outdoor cabana, convenient location close to town and by the main road to all area activities. The hotel is run by friendly, helpful family who all speak fluent English and offer solid advice on local activities. When you book the hanging bridges tour through... More

Stayed for 3 nights and found the location excellent; quiet at night, close enough to walk into town or $2.00 cab ride. The room was very comfortable with A/C and private bathroom. There is an outdoor kitchen facility for common use and the family will cook you a nice breakfast for $5.00. The pool is clean and attractive as well... More

We stayed for only one night at Villa Fortuna. The location is very good, just at the entrance to the city. The hotel is located not far from the main road - some noise from the main road did not interfere our sleep. Breakfast was with an extra charge, but was very good. Rooms are not modern, but clean.

My daughters and I stayed here for 6 nights! Loved this place. Felt like home away from home! Very friendly owners and very accommodating! It was my daughters birthday when we arrived and I had let the hotel know when we booked! To our surprise when we walked into the room there was a cake and balloons waiting for us!... More

The flowers all over the place invite hummingbirds all the time and ist just geourgious to watch them in the morning. They also have a nice swimmingpool. Rooms with small terrace are clean. Very...

This caters for budget travellers and is run by a young owner who took over the property earlier in the year. Two things prompted me to write a review: 1 The location.
