We were greeted by the hotel staff who immediately started giving us information about the area and went well out of his way to arrange some tours for us. The room was a decent size and was very clean. Unfortunately the beds were not very comfortable and the street noise from traffic made for several sleepiness nights. We took advantage... More

I stayed in 3 places in La Fortuna, all were pretty good the staff here was great. Unfortunately, I don't remember the young man's named that helped me but he was so great in helping me out with my immediate future plans. The place is really clean and they offer you a ticket for a legitimate breakfast in the restaurant... More

one of the hottest showers in costa rica (you will love it after having an exhausting hike on the cerro chato!!), very friendly and helpful staff! We recommend to stay here, it`s a family business, the rooms are big and very clean, there is enough space to leave your car savely and the restaurant round the corner is also recommandable!...

1st off I want to say, I was pleasant surprises by the friendly front desk and their willingness to explain the history this small town. The restaurant next door was just as friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend both places.

This hotel is just a few kilometers north of the centre of La Fortuna. It is on the main road which is at a grade opposite the hotel which causes trucks and motorcycles to make significant noise. We stayed in unit 10 which is furthest from the road on the second level. There is a good grocery store across the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during the second week of February. We had room 10 on the second floor which would have an awesome view of the volcano if the clouds were not present. The girls at the front desk were very friendly and helpful, they notified us when out tour guide was downstairs and brought the phone for... More

We stayed at this place for three nights just a few weeks ago, late January. It was clean and spacious rooms, looking out at the volcano. Staff was great and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. I would stay here again for sure. Very affordable, great location. There is a store right across the street, great restaurants all around too.

Would definitely recommend this place. It's slightly out of town, but that's definitely a good thing! There are cafés and restaurants nearby and it's only about a 20 minute walk into town. The rooms are clean and spacious and a great breakfast is included (provided by the cafe next door). Rebeca on reception is really helpful with booking activities.

It's a nice little hotel. The staff is very friendly. The view is very beautiful. There is a great restaurant next door (mi casa) and a supermarket in front. The room is small, the beds are very uncomfortable, no toiletries (paid the same price for a big hotel with everything included) and the wall are very thin. I still can... More

Great location off main road. Stayed in room 1 lower level. Ask for more pillows if possible. Huge shower, but then again it was a handicap accessible room. Fast WIFI and free breakfast were a bonus. We stayed one night and left early next morning so never saw pool or hot tub. Overall great value and would stay here again.... More
