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

This was a very nice hotel right off of the main downtown area. It was very clean and the amenities are updated. The area and room at times were very buggy from the river. We were on the first floor (Premium room 12 right near river) which was part of the issue with bugs getting in. The front desk had... More

Arrived by bus from San Jose, walked 6 minutes with our large suitcase to the Accommodation with no problem. Reception staff very friendly and served us with a lovely cold drink and pointed us to our room. Lovely pool area complete with a Sloth and 2 big Iguanas who live up the tree! River running right behind the Accommodation. Our... More

Our room was ready when we arrived, it was clean and had a great view of the volcano. The hotel is within walking distance to the park and many of the local stores. Our breakfast was included during our stay and was conveniently located less than half a block from the hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

We had no complaints; it was exactly what we were looking for. It was clean, neat, and close to everything we were touring and the local attractions. The concierge was incredibly helpful, and bent over backwards to help us out. Would stay here again!

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
