Hotel La Fortuna Located in town of la Fortuna. Stayed three nights. Used as a staging area for our group of 14. It is in the town, traffic generally from sun up to sun down, never noticed traffic noise at night when sleeping. Hotel has strong basics, excellent water pressure, air conditioned, comfortable clean rooms, made service, excellent breakfast at... More

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helps us plan day excursions which were well done. The breakfast included in our package was fine. Our room was on the 5th floor and if the clouds had parted we would have had a perfect view of the volcano!

The hotel was clean and comfortable, while staff was friendly. Breakfasts are delicious and definitely a great value. Watch out for flooding bathrooms as there are no barriers around the shower floor, which I thought was weird. However, I would definitely stay here again!

The hotel is convenient in La Fortuna, and has a wonderful restaurant, Marisqueria Snappers, a stone throw away. But the rooms have no windows which makes it stuffy n mildewy. It has the potential to be a nice place, but found it to be mediocre in terms of service. The rooms themselves are not three stars at all. One star... More

Very good esperience in this hotel: good location, decent breakfast, good value but the greatest of all was the staff - they made us feel at home from the beginning, accommodated all our requests and gave us great recommendations for tours. You guys rock!

Hotel La Fortuna is basic and comfortable. The rooms are clean and spacious enough. The air conditioner works well. Although ours *clanked* intermittently throughout the night. The shower is spacious and has plenty of hot water. The staff is friendly and gave us extra towels and pillows as soon as we requested them. There is a safe in the room... More

We travelled with a tour group (included in our total price) Like I said to my husband... our tour was booked as a "standard" level... not comfort, not hostel-like. So we got standard for Costa Rica, I suspect. It was clean, with no classy fixtures, hair-dryer or coffee pot. It did not have queen size luxury beds. Not sure what... More

Overall good value with great location and not too noisy. Room was adequate, breakfast was pretty good. My biggest negative was the front desk guy. He is unfriendly and rude. I took my tour and shuttle bookings elsewhere. Checkout was the opposite experience with the wonderful, friendly and helpful female clerk.

Hotel is across the street from Burger King. I discovered the hotel on Tripadvisor. I paid about $40 per night for a single with private bath, which is a pretty good price for La Fortuna in January. Staff was very nice. I did not hear any English spoken by staff in my 2 days there. Room was fine with comfortable... More

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...
