Room OK but not very comfortable bed; staff not very friendly/helpful; limited breakfast (it's what they have prepared for that morning, no choice); A/C was either on or off but temperature could not be adjusted (even after changing the remote) so the room was either too warm or too cold; we lost or forgot a bag there with a few...

Wonderful staff, despite elevator being out and having to walk 3 flights of stairs, this was a good value for the money. We asked for recommendations on eating and they suggested the Red Snapper, which was half a block away. We ate there 4 times, as it was so reasonably priced and very, very good food. A local mom and... More

After staying here, I could not see why this hotel got so many 5 stars. It is perfectly adequate. But it was the little things that that made our stay just okay. Firstly, they asked that we pay up front. Before we even saw the room. That struck me as odd. The next was they needed a deposit for the... More

I have stayed at the five star Tabacon Hotel. And I have stayed at Hotel La Fortuna (about 20 nights over two trips). If you are looking for a quiet resort and have unlimited funds, go with Tabacon, or a similar five star hotel in La Fortuna. But if your purpose is adventure or sightseeing, and are just looking for... More

Stayed there for 3 nights. It is well located. Front desk staff is very helpful. They arranged for our cabs and suggested everything to travel around. Excellent breakfast. The view of Arenal volcano from room was gorgeous. Excellent value for money.

Well sited, but basic hotel in centre of town. Towels a bit stained (errrggh), very rigid attitude towards breakfast hours (after my midnight arrival, and two days of travel, I was 10 mins after the 10am cutoff but they relented and produced fruit and coffee). You get what you pay for. I'd recommend spending a bit more and staying some... More

In general, the hotel is well located, is safe and has the basics in place. Few things that would make it better: towels seriously require changing for 3 star hotel, you cannot supply stained one even if they don't wash out! The staff I believe did their best for us but for some reason (language i guess) still may sound... More
