My sister and I so enjoyed staying at hotel Vista del Cerro! The staff was welcoming and super helpful and spoke great English. The room was comfortable and the location on the edge of La Fortuna was perfect for us...right across the street from a supermarket and next door to a yummy 'soda' where our breakfast was free due to...

I promised Jenny before leaving Hotel Vista del Cerro that I would write this review. She went above and beyond for my group of 6 women traveling to Costa Rica for spring break. Although our delayed flight and road trip from San Juan to La Fortuna resulted in a 3am checkin Jenny was very welcoming and hospitable. Although we only... More

The rooms at Vista del Cerro are very minimal, but you'll have everything you need. there is great water pressure, hot water, views of the volcano, and a nice little swimming pool. the included breakfast is delicious and substantial. There are cows and horses in the adjoining property which are charming. The best thing about this hotel is the staff.... More

The hotel is located around 10 minutes from the heart of La Fortuna. A taxi costs around ~$3. The rooms are basic. You need to bring your own shampoo and conditioner. The room was slightly dank. Jenny is very pleasant and helpful. There is a supermarket right across the hotel. The soda next to the hotel also serves very good... More

The biggest problem with this hotel is the noise. It sits right on the highway roadside, across from a woodworking shop and supermarket. The walls are extraordinarily good at passing sound, so you will hear conversations several doors down, cars rushing by at all hours of the night, not to mention the hammering and electric saws running as early as...

The place was clean. the a/c and cable worked. Water pressure was a little off and you need to bring your own shampoo and conditioner as well as a wash cloth if you use one. But all that said. Jenny was great. My friend lost her wallet with her id, money and atm card on our first day there. Jenny... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and I was very pleased with the cleanliness. Breakfast was delicious. Front desk was always helpful and spoke English. Loud in the mornings because of the road but quiet during sleep hours. Pool was awesome! Overall, pleased with our stay.

Room was clean. Front desk was helpful in arranging tours. Internet worked great near the front. Breakfast was good. Was a long walk to town. Great view of Arenal. Refreshing pool. Only complaint is intermittent hot water.

Stayed for 2 nights and left feeling this was just an 'average' hotel. If you're looking for a clean place to sleep with hot water to shower, this hotel is an option, but may not be the best option for the price. Location: About a mile or more away from La Fortuna town. Not a far distance if you have... More
