Due Business I had stay a few times at San Bosco Hotel. I think it is great for a clean, simple and great room with an outstanding breakfast. The location is very close down town. There is a secure parking lot if you are driving your self.

I had a horrible experience at this hotel and I would advise you not to stay here. I stayed here for a weekend while I was studying abroad through my university. Upon arrival, the front desk clerk suggested I watch the sunset from the hot tub with him. I was uncomfortable from the beginning. I had a ground floor room... More

This hotel is very conveniently located near souvenir shops and restaurants. It has two pools, free breakfast buffet, TV, wi-fi and the basic amenities in the rooms. We were pleased to hang out near the hammock area and find an iguana, birds, and a basilisk!

This was a basic hotel, but very clean, had wifi, air conditioning, great view of Arenol Volcano from the property. The breakfast was fantastic and included with the price of the room. The location was also wonderful to see the Arenol Volcano Park, La Fortuna Falls and the hot springs. We would definitely stay here again. Also very friendly service.

This hotel was recommended by a travel agent friend who has stayed here. The air conditioning was great. Super clean rooms! We didn't use the pool but we ate the buffet breakfasts. We stayed three nights and would absolutely choose this place again! The location was fabulous for shopping. We had two full days of tours planned so we didn't... More

My travel group stayed here for 3 nights while in the La Fortuna area. The location of the hotel to the town center was its best quality. It really is in a great location. The staff were friendly, but nothing that stood out as amazing. Housekeeping always did a great job though. A few of the rooms had cold showers... More

This hotel was luxurious for us after a few weeks in hotels without air con and hot water. It was clean, and functional, and was perfectly located in the center of La Fortuna, close to banks, restaurants, the bus station, and tour companies. The breakfast was good, there was free coffee and tea all day, and the pool and jacuzzi... More
