Villas Vilma is right on the fringes of La Fortuna heading towards the volcano. We were first attracted by the colorful cabins and beautiful landscaping. On impulse, we checked in and got a private room with two double beds for $50 per night. It was pouring rain but the jacuzzi has a roof, so we spent an hour there quite... More

This was an awesome find on our trip. Super clean and comfortable hotel run by a nice Tico family. This was a great value for the price. The breakfast at the neighboring hotel was super as well. awesome to watch hummingbirds flit about the beautiful pool side setting. Beautiful gardens

Guided by Tripadvisor reviews we stopped here for a night on the way to Arenal volcano. Properly well kept and has beautiful volcano view. Manicured lawn, beautiful flowers, stone pawed walkways, big pool and jacuzzi. Clean rooms with quiet split room ac systems installed, showers with plenty of hot water.

Villas Vilma is a ten unit travlers motel that provides a resort feel at a very fair price. Being located right on the major road gives you quick access to municipal buses and local businesess. The staff is helpful and the grounds are kept manicured by a master gardener. The Black Rock travlers motel next door provides an american breakfast.... More

Lovely place to stay, great value for money well recommended. Great pool and hot tub. Staff very friendly. Room spacious and comfortable. Great view of the volcano. More like apartments than hotel rooms. Good restaurants nearby. Very clean and well looked after.

We stayed here for one evening on our way from San Jose over to the coast. The hotel is conveniently located and clean. The staff are very friendly. We had a beautiful view of the Arenal volcano from our room. Property is well-maintained and, although we didn't get to partake, the pool and hot tub looked very clean and inviting.... More

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.
