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

This hotel served its purpose - a comfortable place to stay while adventuring the forest. It's not luxury, but has everything most people would need - clean and comfortable beds, reasonable bathroom, balcony outlooking the volcano, breakfast. Staff was helpful and friendly. Hotel is in a relatively quiet corner slightly off the major business areas. Internet is not bad at... More

Monte Real is a super clean, updated, and beautiful family-run hotel steps away from the heart of La Fortuna's downtown. Location was wonderful--although it was away from the main traffic and bustle of the town, it was still within 2-4 short blocks of every recommended eatery, multiple grocery stores (super cristian #2 is excellent), at least 4 banks, and the...

I stayed for two night in this hotel as part of a group. The rooms are very large (also the toilets and shower are very large) and included two beds. The room included a fridge and a safe. Everything was clean and well prepared. Next door the hotel built new rooms and during the day there is construction noise, but... More

They are constructing some more rooms right by the pool with workmen starting drilling and hammering at 6am very close to the other rooms. We had a lovely room and beds very comfortable but the construction work was too much for us do we moved to Arenal Green hotel instead which was super quiet. Monte Rel hotel understood and gave...

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Pool was nice even though we didn't use it. It rained the entire time. Room was clean and big. Would recommend if you are in the area for a couple nights. Can walk to town and restaurants. Saw a huge dinosaur iguana outside the room and a sloth. Karen at the front is amazing.... More

I stayed as part of a G Adventures tour and was not disappointed. The hotel was a short walk from the centre of town, where all the shops and bars and restaurants are located around the typical CR square.

We stayed 2 nights at Monte Real and we can't say anything bad about the hotel. Rooms were very clean and spacious, with a nice terrace (over the river in our case). The staff were very friendly and accommodated all our requests. There is a laundry service which is very quick and efficient ($10 and in 12 hours we had... More
