We stayed at this hotel in November for 3 nights. The staff is English speaking, very friendly, helpful in getting advises , recommendations about places around. The room was clean and nice, with a view of Arenal volcano. Hotel has a beautiful garden with a lot of birds and a swimming pool. The free breakfast was delicious as other meals... More

I stayed Hotel Vista del Cerro for two nights in May and I strongly recommend this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was good as everything is around the hotel– a supermarket is just across the street, a nice restaurant is just next to the hotel and others are also short walking distance. You can also found... More

While in Costa Rica for two weeks I caught a ride with friends that were going to an expo in Las Carlos. After dropping them off, I continued on looking for a place on the way to the Arenal volcano to spend a couple quiet days (hopefully away from the tourist crowd). A total cold call found me at Hotel... More

We spent one night at this hotel in early March. The staff was wonderful. Extremely helpful. The room was clean. It was very reasonably priced. The location is great for seeing the volcano. The only bad thing is it is close to the road and you can hear the traffic passing by. I would stay again.

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

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...
