This hotel was a breath of fresh air after a harrowing week in Costa Rica. I was thrilled with the amenities - pretty lobby, clean and well-appointed rooms, hot water and great water pressure (this, I discovered, was hard to find in this price range at other hotels in CR) breakfast included, free internet 24/7, and awesome helpful staff that...

Just down the street from Don Rufino and Pito Pito, assured as of fantastic food and drinks only a few steps from the hotel. The hotel owners and staff were generous and quick to assist with any needs. They can guide and suggest how to enjoy your visit the max. Great location to start and end many activities.

Just got back from 10 days in costa rica, and Hotel La Fortuna was the shining surprise of the places we stayed! I actually thought I was in the wrong building when my brother and I arrived - we were paying only 20 dollars per person per night. Manrique at the front desk was very nice and super helpful. There... More

Hotel La Fortuna is a an OK hotel in the area, it is clean, first impressions, it's really high tech with a pretty fast elavator & electronic keys. However the bathroom design is a little off...there was no real tile divider on the floor but a metal strip....the water went all over the bathroom floor and started to flow into... More

When we visited La Fortuna two years ago, we stayed at this same hotel, and left feeling as if Jose and Lorena Soto, the owners, were close friends. Rooms were spare and incredibly inexpensive, but had hot water and a private bathroom. Imagine our surprise when we returned two years later and discovered a brand new high rise hotel in... More

HOTEL: very cute, clean, and super friendly. Lorena ( gosh, i think that is her name: blond, caucasion, speaks little english but is great...and she usually works the desk front area). I like her, she was super friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Try staying on the 3rd floor or above to get away from the street noise and to... More

The staff is great, the rooms are clean, the showers are big, rooms have AC and Cable TV. The hotel bar has great food and the staff has a great relationship with adventure companies in town and can help set up tours. This is a great pick!

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at this property after spending time in Puerto Viejo. Conveniently located in the town's center, all the restaurants are services in town are in walking distance. The rooms were clean and mattress comfortable for all the post hiking and riding the area offers. The staff was most compassionate and went the extra... More

This little gem is located right in the center of La Fortuna. It is very convenient. Rooms are very clean but no frill. Half of our family stayed elsewhere the first night. We got great rate for two people. However, when the rest of the family showed up. The lady in the front desk insisted that we must take a... More
