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

**if checking in after 10pm, make sure you notify hotel: no one at front desk past 10pm; we called ahead and concierge left our key with security guard. We were driving in from San jose, and therefore arrived past 10pm in la fortuna. Had they not left our key with security guard, we would have had no where to stay... More

Little hotel, right next to a creek with wildlife. Although did not get to see resident sloth! Clean, spacious rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Great location as close to town, bank, supermarket & restaurants.

Hotel Monte Real is well appointed at a reasonable price. It's 5 minutes to the hustle and bustle of La Fortuna but in a quiet area with a river and small forest area near the rooms and pool. The rooms had comfortable beds, all outlets worked, good lighting and didn't check if wifi worked or not this time. Our group... More

We arrived in La Fortuna without any reservations or plans. After checking various Hotels and cabins around town we chanced upon this hotel. We spoke to the front desk person to inquire if they had any vacancies. He said they did. I asked if we could look at the room before deciding. He gave us the key for room #7.... More
