Monte Real is centrally located in La Fortuna, so it's in perfect walking distance to many different restaurants and shops. The hotel room itself was so clean, and the people who work in the front office were very nice and helped book us a couple of tours. The forest out back is a perk, especially the iguanas in the trees.... More

If you are on a budget this is a great place. Our room was spacious and had views of Volcan Arenal. There is a clean, decent pool and the grounds are well manicured. Lots of birds and iguanas. The town is a very short walk but feels miles away. Yes you have to walk a couple of blocks for breakfast... More

We arrived pretty late from an all day travel, but were greeted with a welcome drink and reception staff happy to answer our multitude of questions, which included him phoning a hot springs to check the price and a tour company to reconfirm our pick up time. We had booked none of these tours through the hotel. We also put... More

Very good and friendly service, nice and clean rooms with good (hot) showers. Two queen size beds that fitted two adults and two kids without problems. The garden is really great, lots of birds, big iguanas, flowers and nice trees alongside the small river. The pool, although small, is a nice hangout for the kids. Two minutes walk to the... More

It's on a great location. The service was awesome, the room was big, clean and nice decorated. Hotel staff is very courteous and helpful. You can see all kinds of animals and birds on the back yard including sloths. If I go to la fortuna again, I will definitely stay there. Recommended for Costa Ricans and foreign tourists.

Hotel Monte Real is beautiful! It's set off the road. Once you enter, there's beautiful, lush landscaping and multiple varieties of plants and trees, all with signs so you can identify what's what. There's a beautiful pool area (very clean and great temperature). The river runs behind the property so you can sit and enjoy nature, a picnic perhaps? The... More

We stayed in this lovely hotel for 4 nights in March. It was perfect. Very clean, and spacious rooms with refrigerator, a/c and 2 private balconies. Beautiful gardens, perfectly landscaped with iguanas, birds, a brook, and pool. Good breakfast just 1 minute from hotel. Everything we needed was a very short walk. Even though you were close to town the... More
