There is a large common living area with a nice balcony that overlooks the church and square. Lots of restaurants within walking distance as well as grocery store. The nice young woman who was there to check us in... More

What a great place to "set up camp" for 3-4 days. The open, airy living room makes a wonderful place to meet fellow travelers from all corners of the globe or kick back in the indoor hammock and read. The kitchen facilities allowed us to cook with some local ingredients from the supermarket, just across the park. The rooms and... More

This hotel met all of our needs. The host was very gracious, helping us connect with many of the local activities and sites. The beds were comfortable, and the environment was relaxed and welcoming. It is located in central La Fortuna with excellent access to the town shops and markets.

The Sleeping Indian is centrally located in La Fortuna and served our needs quite well. We rented the whole thing for a reasonable rate and only had our family... More

This place was beautiful and the price was right. Our host, Heidi, was really helpful in helping us find activities to do during our stay, and negotiated great rates! She went out of her way to call the tour offices, arrange our rates and our pick up time right from the hostel. Unlike a lot of hotels, this place does... More

We felt welcomed from the moment that we arrived. The location is one block off the main street across from a beautiful park. Shops, banks and great restaurants all within a short walk. Peter, the host, was more than helpful with directions and suggestions for everything we needed. His advice was consistently spot on and led us to good food... More
