Overall we really enjoyed our stay here. The room was big, clean, had air con which was a nice luxury, and the front desk staff were really lovely. For the price, we thought it was excellent. It was only on our last day when we felt rather let down. We had been told breakfast was at the soda up the... More

We spent a couple of nights here while touring Costa Rica. The staff are friendly and the gardener will show you where all the interesting frogs and critters hang out on the property. There is a stream at the back of the grounds behind the pool area. The rooms are big with either a patio outside or a balcony. The... More

Monte Real is a very good option if you spend a few days in the Arenal region. Clean rooms, very friendly and helpful bilingual staff. Located in the middle of the city centre of La Fortuna, but still with a nice view over the surrounding and the little stream next to the hotel. La Fortuna is a very good city... More

Great staff, beautiful property, nice clean room. Don't pay extra for a volcano or river view room, as I'm not sure any of the rooms can see either directly. They are very helpful with planning tours. The location was perfect for walking around the La Fortuna area.

We will return to this place if we come back to La Fortuna. A very clean room in an attractive complex. Staff speak English and are very helpful. Great location in La Fortuna and centrally situated for access to the area's various sites. Reasonably priced as well. Breakfast is down the street at a great little soda offering Costa Rican...

This was a nice hotel with both coffemaker and fridge. The staff was very kindly and helpful. We had a terrace. The garden was nice and it was just a short walk to the center of La Fortuna. They didn´t serve the breakfast at the hotell; but it was just 2 minutes walk away.

Great place to stay if your travelling and looking for a clean room and comfortable bed for a good nights rest. The grounds are well kept, and the staff are very polite and helpful.

Stayed here as part of a tour group. The room was very clean, the bathroom looked brand-new and had hot water (definitely a must when it's raining there!). There was even a small pool outside! It was conveniently located, only a short walk to the center and to restaurants/supermarkets. The only complaint I have is the third bed- it made... More

Hotel Monte Real in La Fortuna, Costa Rica has excellent views of Arenal Volcano. We stayed in a premium room with two queen beds and en suite bath. The room was very well appointed and overlooked the pool and volcano. The room was clean and well maintained. Every day, the fresh towels were crafted into different animal shapes (swan, elephant,...
