I went to La Pradera Hotel in May 2013 and returned there this year. Very nice hotel within walking distance of La Fortuna and the assorted hot spring spas nearby. Since last year, there are now more restaurants, a grocery store and many other places on this main street. The hotel decor is beautiful and the rooms are all set... More

Excellent value with a beautiful view of the volcano! We stayed in a bungalow in the back of the property - it was cleaned daily and well maintained. It's also fairly close to town - we walked to La Fortuna and back a couple of times.

La fortuna could be a really expensive place but this hotel comes out as a great option if you are in a low budget. The location is good not too far from downtown like a mile or two a totally walking distance. They have 4 pools: 2 hot water, one cold and a tiny for the kids. The rooms are... More

This hotel offers you excellent value for the price! Located a little over a mile from La Fortuna, this hotel is within walking distance (or taxi distance) of plenty of shops, food, and local entertainment. Walking to La Fortuna takes about 30 minutes, and the cab ride is $4-6 depending on the driver. They also offer ATV tours directly from... More

Stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful time. Sadie and Jacqueline were of great help. The complimentary breakfast was filling and tasty. Nelson makes a very nice omelet. The hotel has excellent views of the volcano. Nice pool and outdoor bar. It's an athletic walk to La Fortuna, but worth it. A cab is just $4. I would stay there... More

While the cabins are cute and adorable, the staff truly makes this hotel shine. each morning the staff made fresh made to order omelets in addition to a full... More

This hotel is well located with a perfect view of the Arenal Volcano right from your cabana. The cabanas are big, clean and quiet. They are surrounded by vegetation and beautiful flowers for privacy. The food was good and the service excellent. We used the hot tub end the pool one night which was nice. You don't need an alarm... More

We had a cabin. The cabin itself was pretty basic but clean. Room has mini fridge to keep your cervezas cold. The view was incredible. All of the cabins have porches with chairs perfect for reading or enjoying the volcano. The pool, hot tub and bar set up was great. Two different hot tubs, one hotter than the other. Bar... More

Had a bit of difficulty booking online without a fax machine and they would not take my credit card over the phone, but the room was available when we arrived none the less. The $65 included tax and a wonderful breakfast. The room was classy, spacious and clean and the best we had while in Costa Rica for the best... More
