I would not consider staying anywhere else in La Fortuna. The view of the volcano is perfect, I have always had a comfortable bed, the owners are charming, the gardens are beautiful, and I enjoy the Tico breakfasts. (Some writers grumbled about cold eggs. Just ask, and you will get hot eggs. If you come late to breakfast, the steam... More

The grounds of this hotel are stunning. We absolutely loved our stay here. The bungalows are adorable. The lush unique foliage was incredible. Whoever does the landscaping is very talented. There are great views of the volcano. Downtown La Fortuna is within walking distance so you have access to restaurants, the park and grocery stores. We even saw a SLOTH... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel 2 days in March. I booked some months earlier. When arrived and checked in, nice reception girl showed us our cottage. Its number was 15. We realized, that it was like winning in Lotto: we got cottage with best view from window to the Arenal volcano, not to wall of next room..From... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in March and was very pleased with the choice. La Fortuna has many expensive resort type hotels out of town, so if you want the flexibility of eating at different places and buying from supermarkets without incurring a lot of taxi fares this is an excellent option. It is about 7-10 minutes walk from the... More

If you want to spend your funds wisely, this is a great place to stay at $70/night. We spent 2 nights here and both nights were great. As expected there were some bugs, but nothing too much to complain about. Location wise its great, its not in the heart of the town square, but it is easily accessible and no... More

The hotel is a 5min walk from the centre of town, and represents great value for the price. The rooms were clean, staff was friendly - and the breakfast was wonderful. Pool was also very nice - wifi only available at the front desk.

We booked this hotel because it was reasonably priced and seemed to be in a good location. I actually liked the little cabin style rooms, they were good sized and the bathroom was nice too. Unfortunately, the bed was extremely uncomfortable. Additionally, as a few others have noted, the walls are very thin and you can hear just about everything... More
