Small but efficient. Pleasant front desk staff. Clean and spacious rooms. Voucher for a full breakfast right down the block. Beautiful little pool with creative (maybe a little corny) statues. Overall perfect for the 2 days, one night we were there.

Just a block off the main drag in La Fortuna, this place is clean, well maintained, has good air conditioning, and a great pool for cooling off after getting back from whatever activity you were doing that day. The property backs up to a little river and the hotel has created a little mini-oasis where they are creating frog habitat... More

This was our first trip to La Fortuna so I did not know what to expect. The room was a pleasant surprise because it was well laid out with good amenities. These included a refrigerator, air conditioning, coffee pot with coffee, a small patio with table and chairs, a flat screen TV and a well kept pool out our front... More

We stayed in two rooms over 6 days. The rooms were nice, A/C worked well, and the grounds were very well maintained. Check in/out was easy and efficient. Everything was as or better than expected. As we walked around La Fortuna we quickly realized that we had found a gem in the little town. Very close to all restaurants and... More

The room was spacious and v comfortable. Some people have complained about being a bit far from the front, but it's less than 2mins walk, I'm not sure what the problem is? Those rooms are also right by the river and the grounds are lovely. They have a tiny pool that I always saw someone cleaning but no one ever... More

Our room was a decent size, clean and had good air con, with some hanging space for clothes and an outside patio with table and chairs. Daniele at reception was very friendly and helpful. The only things that stopped me rating higher were the bathroom, which wasn't as nice as the room (and the shower was luke warm), and the... More

Hotel Monte Real was a solid choice for simple yet comfortable lodging in La Fortuna. The rooms were spacious and clean and felt very secure. The grounds had a manicured garden and pool. The hotel location was central and accessible with many walkable options for eating and buying day to day travel supplies. The front desk staff, Daniel specifically, had... More

Traveled with my 14 year old daughter so I was most interested in a clean, safe hotel at a reasonable rate. Monte Real was all three. Staff was very helpful during our 3 day stay. Five minute walk to town center. Beautiful flowers and plants.

This is close to a 5. We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was clean and had a comfortable area to relax. The grounds are not large but they well kept and are complemented by a creek or river that flows next to it. Our room was good sized and very clean... More

My husband and I stayed at this place. The location was in the heart of town, but just far enough to be away from the taxis and all that. The hotel was quiet and very clean. The air condition was silent, which made sleeping so comfortable! They have a nice pool to relax in and a nice garden by a... More
