This hotel was our base for a couple of nights, the room was huge and had everything we wanted, the bathroom was massive. Everything was very clean, and the hotel had a very nice looking (but small) pool outside.

This place is easy to find; it's about 50m from La Fortuna Hotel, the only multi-storey building in town. Although it's on the same noisy street the rooms are set well back from the road, so the only sounds you hear are frogs at night and birds in the morning, as there's a small stream behind the hotel. Rooms are... More

I think that for the price you get a really good deal at Monte Real. The rooms were clean, the AC worked, there is a TV and a small fridge and the bathroom was fine. This is not the type of hotel where you want to hang out in your room (especially since we could never get the WiFi to... More

The hotel was easy to find at the corner of la Fortuna, close to the city but still pretty quite - everything was in walking distance. The hotel staff was very friendly, they recommended and booked a nice tour for as and when one light bulb broke it was fixed within 30 minutes - really great!. The room itself was... More

Good location, easy to access the main area but on a quiet street Loved the sound of rushing water in the garden Nice pool area No food available onsite but hotel across street starts breakfast at 7 am Also a great laundry very close by - they can also clean your shoes which might get very dirty during the activities...

The center of la Fortuna is near by, but this hotel is in a quiet location near the river, nice clean rooms with a/c, hot water, safe, private parking. Garden with small pool. The good included breakfast was in a nearby reastaurant

we stayed 2 nights here...comfortable, clean rooms and bathrooms. Walkable to most eateries around. Breakfast provided was good...a few doors down at a Soda. Landscaping was great at the property - great gardens, exotic plants like pineapples and beautiful flowers. We saw several red frogs, iguanas scampering about and even a sloth on one of the trees...well cared for property... More

We stayed 2 nights here and could not get WiFi in the 1st room we booked. Daniel at the front desk apologized and moved us to another room the next night ( they were fully booked the 1st night). He explained that a new building was blocking the Internet and the management would correct that - hopefully that is the... More

the hotel is nice and simple and good for the price. Located beside a ravine and huge trees. Iguanas leaved on the trees. Spacious rooms and bathroom . Walking distance to restaurants and the city centre. The staff was friendly and helpful. Free parking.

Very spacious and clean rooms with wifi tv and fridge. The sound of the river behind the hotel made me feel like in the middle of a jungle whilst the hotel was actually very centrally located. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I liked the fact that it was within a an easy reach to all the shops and... More
