The hotel grounds are well care, the rooms are average (it have a rally tiny trash can, and save box), but the service of the staff is more that deficient. They seem to be very upset about their jobs, hence they do not provide a good service, at the begging we have problems with the reservation, we already had payed... More

Stayed here one night enroute and it was fine. It is nothing fancy, the beds were ok and the breakfast was ok too. The bathrooms barely had space to turn around it and the safe's are very small. A regular ipad would not be able to fit. Wear bug repellant as there are many mosquitoe's. The grounds are beautiful and... More

They take care for the garden around and the people are friendly. Also they have alot of birds and lizards around. But the rooms are not very comfortable, its very dark inside and they have no mosquito nets. I would not stay there for more than 2 nights.

We looked at TA for reviews of this hotel for our stay in costa rica. They were mostly positive, so we went ahead and booked it. When we got there, we saw only one person actually working and checking people in. She was nice, but did not speak very good English. Customer service was pretty good for the rest of... More

This hotel is something special, and am glad we found it. Housekeeping staff and Maria in reception are what make this a special place. The breakfast in the morning is some of the best rice and beans we have eaten, and plenty of fresh fruit, hot coffee, juice, eggs, toast and hot cakes will fill you up for your adventures... More

Was a pleasant experience to stay at Arenal Montechiari, the receptionist was extremely welcoming and kind. The location was perfect away from the busy streets of La Fortuna but close enough as well to go eat. Breakfast was good as well. Rooms were nice and clean only little problem was small bathroom because we had kids but other than that... More

Dear Guest. dear Customer. Thank you very much for being with us. We are pleased that you received great attention and enjoyed being in our beautiful Montechiari. With regard to the bathroom a little small; really only 3-bedded rooms have that feature, because of the space required to accommodate more guests ... all others have much larger bathroom. We hope...

This place was very nice! One thing I loved about it is that it's centrally located enough so that you can go by foot to the restaurants. It's also far enough so that it's not to noisy. The bungalows are just so cute with all the flowers and vegetation around. It is also facing the volcano, but we did not... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in December 2014. We had a corner room with an excellend view of the Arenal Volcano (when it wasn't clouded over!). The grounds were beautiful, the pool was refreshing, the room was large and clean. The location a little bit from town provides a great, quiet place to relax, while still... More

Hotel Montechiari is located 5 mn away from the bustling center of La Fortuna and that makes all the difference. Composed of rows of individual bungalows set in a lush well-maintained garden, with the volcano as backdrop, the setting is beautiful and quiet. Symphony of birds awake you, fragrant plants and flowers permeate the air. Our family of 4 stayed... More

My husband and I fell in love with this hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the front desk in the nicest manner. She even gave us some recommendations of which hot springs to visit. The grounds are nicely kept and the cabins are in great condition. Be warned, your cabins are standing by themselves so it is very easy... More
