Don't be fooled by your first impression as you get to La Fortuna Suites on an unpaved back road - you will definitely feel like you're in the middle of nowhere in a shady place. Once you enter tho, you will meet Ian - the awesome host- who will bring you to a lovely, comfortable, functional and clean room. Not... More

One of the best parts of this small hotel is the location,the heart of LaFortuna in a real neighborhood. Ian the manager works so hard to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. You can walk to local restaurants, banks,laundry,post office and green space at center of town. Breakfast is included and some mornings Ian will make his special eggs with... More

As other reviewers have noted, we felt like we were staying with a good friend. The room was super comfortable (high-thread count sheets, netflix and comfortable mattresses). The breakfast was delicious--eggs,... More

We appreciated a lot the friendly attention of Ian, the possibility to park our car within the yard and the very good breakfast on the terrace, though we could not see te Arenal volcano until the last morning of our stay !

We stayed for 2 nights at La Fortuna Suites and LOVED IT! You don't feel like you are in a hotel you feel like you are staying with an old friend. Ian was amazing and so accommodating to us and everyone else staying there. The room was spacious and ours opened on to the 2nd floor breakfast patio which is... More

Very nice small hotel in La Fortuna. Ian is very accommodating and knowledgeable, and serves great breakfasts. I can't really add to other recent reviews except to agree on the superior nature of the property. Stay here if you can.

We had a great time at La Fortuna Suites. The location is close to shops, banks, and grocery stores in La Fortuna, and only minutes from many of the attractions in the Arenal area. Ian is a kind and attentive host, and we had such a comfortable and pleasant stay. We benefitted a lot from the kitchen which was spacious... More

We selected La Fortuna Suites as we wanted more of a boutique offering in a town that seemed to be full of large resorts. The price for the hotel was amazing, not to mention the fresh breakfast that Ian cooked for us each morning with fruit, eggs, juice, and coffee. Our room was a bit dark, we wish we were... More
