They had nice clean rooms and the staff was very helpful with booking the shuttle and getting taxis. It was a decent price for the room and the accommodations were perfect for our one night stay. Its conveniently located in walking distance from restaurants and shops

This place exceeded my expectations. We only stayed one night, but would have liked to stay more. The gardens were lush and beautiful, as was the view of Arenal Volcano from the entrance. The included breakfast is in a neighbouring hotel and that was really nice. The owners were helpful and friendly.

Villas Vilma is a nice place located just outside La Fortuna, in the direction of the Arenal Volcano and all the main attractions. Stayed there only 2 nights, and arrived without any sightseeing arrangements. The family who runs the place (sister and brother, I believe) was very helpful in making recommendations for things to see in the area, making same-day... More

This is a great affordable option for La Fortuna. Even though the hotel is just off the road, the views and surroundings are beautiful. The pool and hot tub are surprisingly upscale. Being able to have breakfast directly across the road is just as good as a restaurant on site. We were astonished to see TV with good cable connection... More

Villa Vilmas is a cute little bungalow style dwelling. Each bungalow has a fridge and a coffee maker (but make sure you ask for the coffee from reception). We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful gardens and loved sitting on the patio enjoying the rain. (It rained everyday while we were there and while still beautiful, it took a little... More

We stayed here one night with our family of four. The cabins are picturesque and the grounds are very well manicured. There is a nice pool and jacuzzi. The hotel provides pool towels for $2 a piece which I think is overly priced. Pool towels should be included The room had a full size bed and two twin beds. The... More

Thank you so much for your comment! Unfortunately there was a misunderstanding about the situation with the towels, we are very sorry about it, we don´t make any charge for the towels or any service besides the room rate and breakfast. We would like to get in contact with you in order to eventually make a return for any extra... More

This is my second stay in less than four months and this stay was even nicer than the first. The buildings have been repainted a pallet of brilliant colors, with up grades to the TV's lights. Still a very good place to stay when in La Fortuna.

We stayed here 3 nights, December 29-January 1. The grounds are gorgeous. The room is simple and the bed wasn't the best but you really can't beat the value. The breakfast coupon they offered for the place across the street was also a great deal. Very good breakfast and a generous portion.
