I stayed here in January 2016. We stayed here for 3 nights. The cabins are exactly what we needed. Everything in the cabin worked perfect! I highly recommend buying the breakfast that Don Felix sells for 5$ a day. Its really good and its a big portion. They also have a washing service which was3$ a kilo (the cheapest one... More

My husband and I stayed here in December 2015 for two nights. We booked the last room that was available which was a huge cabin with two bedrooms and a living room and mini kitchen (refrigerator and micowave and hot plate). The patio had a hammock. A short ten minute walk brings you to a pretty stream. Right outside your... More

We got a 2 bedroom cabin. Its small and the bedrooms are separated by a wall that doesnt go all the way to the top so you can hear everything thats going on in the other bedroom. Housekeeping was done everyday and we came back to a very clean cabin. Didnt need air conditioning and we were comfortable with just... More

La Fortuna is developed for tourists, and as such, you'll find plenty of pricey, luxury hotels. These cabins are the opposite. Priced well, and with an emphasis on nature. The owner even has a hummingbird greet you when you check in. At the end of the row of cabins are steps that take you right to river. The cabins are... More

lix is very welcoming and friendly. He and his wife only speak Spanish but I do as well so that wasn't a problem for me. His son speaks English and is always around so don't let that deter you from staying here if you don't speak the language. The cabins are basic but you have what you need. Plus, chances... More

Felix, the owner, provides a delicious freshly cooked breakfast of pico de gallo; eggs; chopped papaya, mango and banana; toast and natural jam. The accommodations are spacious wooden cabins nestled in tropical foliage laden with toucans, hummingbirds, and other tropical fauna. The cabins overlook a pristine gurgling river. The water is clean and refreshing. We often took the three-minute walk... More

This is a great place for those who would like to fall asleep listening to the wildlife. We got a cabin with two bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom for 25k CRC. The cabins are nice and clean, and the taxi to the town center costs roughly 1k CRC. The service is excellent! The owner seems like a man who... More

I loved this place. From the big beautiful cabin we stayed in to the wonderful family that owns and runs the hotel. The cabin we stayed in the first night was nice, very large kitchen with two good sized bedrooms but we had 3 more people arriving the next night so for night 2 and 3 we stayed in a... More

I stayed in their 2 bedroom cabin with my girlfriend and parents. There is a relaxing deck with a hammock overlooking the jungle in the back. The kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator and the living room has a TV and good setup to play some cards and wind down with some drinks after a long day of hiking. The... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay there. The owners were very welcoming and pointed us to nice little trail down to the river. You need a car to reach the bigger trails around the volcano area as well as the waterfalls. The kitchen is equipped with basic needs and we enjoyed a private breakfast with fruits at our porch....
