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.

Quite by accident I came to Vista Del Cerro as the hotel I was suppose to stay at must have had had every marching band with amplified speakers surrounding it & I wanted quiet. What a wonderful place! It's family run & they were all so gracious, friendly & accomodating! I was so grateful to have discovered it. And because... More

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

We spent 2 nights here, family of 3. Friendly staff, clean rooms, hot shower. Breakfast incl at the restaurant next door, limited menu but very good and friendly. Pool and patio were enjoyed, although it was a little cool when we were there. Arenal cleared only a few times for a picture. A short drive to La Fortuna and hot... More

Basically the best experience one can get in this beautiful Costa Rican adventure town of La Fortuna. Awesome close location to Arenal, a tad away from downtown so its quiet, beautiful (only like 5-10 min walk to dt?). Overall best value and quality.

Great value motel, very clean and direct view of the volcano. Jenny was really helpful and booked some trips for us which gave us a discount. The restaurant next door was good too. You can walk into La Fortuna from this hotel but it is quite a long way.
