4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed a couple nights here, based on the good Tripadvisor reviews. I asked for a room in the back, near the river, as this is very important, since you don't hear the noise from the main road that runs right in front of the hotel. My room on the bottom floor was very clean, the bed was comfortable and... More

We stayed at Monte Real for two nights while staying in La Fortuna as part of a G Adventures tour. Overall, it was a very nice stay. Staff at the front desk were very friendly and the rooms were pretty nice. The queen-sized bed was very comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. The showers were very nice, but they have... More

The staff was very friendly, so we felt comfortable and enjoyed our stay. Big rooms with fridge and a nice terrace in front. And on top of all a lovely botanic garden with a frog garden. The friendly gardener showed me strawberry frogs, red eyed frogs as well as a big Iguana in the treetops.

This was the second hotel on a group tour around Costa Rica. It was way beyond my expectations! The room and bathroom were spacious. It was in the perfect location, backing onto a small stream and in a great area for restaurants/shopping/grocery stores. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant but you are only a few feet away from many local... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, the rooms were all very nice. It's in a good location near everything you'll need in la fortuna and a short walk to the centre to get a view of Arenal volcano. We found it very friendly here and a supermarket near by. There is a nice pool at the hotel and a nice... More

This was our first hotel stop once we got to Costa Rica and drove in from Saqn Jose. We wanted to be close to the volcano but also within walking distance of the local shops and restaurants. This was a great choice. The staff was helpful and friendly as well. There was a tour group (teenagers) at the hotel at... More

Nice size, nice rooms, nice pool, good location. We saw nothing better for us in La Fortuna. Rooms were clean and spacious, nice people both working and staying there. Very happy with our choice and would recommend Monte Real to friends. Ask for room 15.

Quaint view, spacious rooms, but minimal surfaces to place your stuff during your stay. Beds were truly horrible! All I felt were springs with absolutely no give or cushion. Air conditioner didn't work when we arrived. At least guest services is friendly and polite.

I must give my best recommendation to Monte Real. Unfortunately I lost my iPhone in Arenal, a week after I had left Monte Real, their staff contacted me and informed me that they had found my iPhone. They really put an effort to find me and send me the iPhone across Costa Rica via a Shuttle company. So grateful and... More

We were there for 2 nights. The room was perfect for us (2 adults, 2 kids). The breakfast is given in a small restaurant at 200 meters from the hotel. Food is fine. We went there for lunch too. The pool is small but fine. The employees are helpful and ready to call to make reservations for you.
