This hotel is well situated at the western edge of chaotic La Fortuna, so you don't have to enjoy its traffic jams each time you wish to drive from the hotel to the volcano area, hot springs included (though it's generally not recommended to drive after nightfall in Costa Rica, the 15 km or so from the hot springs back...

fabulous fun and full of character, this home away from home hotel. LOVED it there! From the moment we arrived we were greeted with ducks and chickens and doggies. Our room had a wonderful view of the volcano in the distance with lush greenery and plants and birds. Rooms had chairs and swings out on the terrace which was great... More

Nice little hotel with eight or nine cabins just outside La Fortuna, within walking distance of some places to eat. Though the cabins are side by side, they are separated by a fence of bushes, etc., which makes it feel private from your neighbor. The rooms are very small with a large bed, a table and small bench, two night... More

We stayed two nights in Roca Negra and really enjoyed the quiet place a bit outside of La Fortuna. The hotel has beautiful gardens where chickens and peacocks are running around. The rooms are clean and have everything you need including air condition and a fridge. Also breakfast was really tasty; however we only had breakfast on one morning as... More

Hotel Roca Negra has beautiful lush gardens with chickens and peacocks running around. The gorunds aren't that large and there are only like 8 rooms. This hotel has the basics, a bed, tv, air conditioning and a couple charis on the little patio area outside your door. Our bathroom window did not have a screen on it so we had... More

After all my travelling in Costa Rica i understand that from all budget hotels we had Roca Negra was the best one! Room had everything you need. And also they have really nice garden, swimming pool and extra 6 USD breakfast.

Very Clean and quiet place. The attention is very good. and the place is very well located from the main attractions in the area. The persons in charge are very well educated and the place is friendly to all kind of persons. You can contract local tours with the help of the desk.

If you keep in comparison to what you pay and for what you get, this you can't beat this charming small property. The grounds are beautiful. the rooms are very simple and basic and clean. We enjoyed our two night stay here.

Roca Negra is set in a mini-jungle garden that is well taken care of and beautiful. The rooms are simple but had everything that we needed. Roca Negra is close to restaurants and the town but not in the heart of it so there is some peace from "tourist-ville". The hotel is also close to other attractions in the area.... More
