If you're looking for luxury, or used to it, this probably isn't the place. The rooms were fine - no complaints at all - but you stay here for the view, and proximity to La Fortuna and its restaurants. We (2 teens) were perfectly happy here. Pool was nice, pool bar, too. Views 10/10. Would stay again, no regrets, though... More

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. The rooms are nice and have enough space, there's a refrigerator in the room. The staff is nice, friendly and very helpful, even the manager helped me.

hotel would be greatly improved with hot water in the Jacuzzi by the pool. Short distance to downtown area for shopping. Would stay at this property again when visiting La Fortuna. The Peruvian restaurant on the way to centro was excellent.

Overall, our stay was about what I expected. The room was clean, beds reasonably comfortable (except for pillows), the property was in a good location, the staff was friendly, the included breakfast was good, and the pool was well-maintained. On the down side, our air-conditioner didn't work so we had to sleep with the patio door open - fortunately no... More

Room was clean and spacious, view was spectacular. Staff at hotel were all pleasant and helpful, would definitely stay there again and recommend to a friend. Pay a bit more and stay on the 3rd floor....well worth the small extra amount.

This hotel was very clean with a standard room. The grounds are well maintained and the view of the volcano from your room is breathtaking! The food at the restaurant is okay but pricey. Nearby there are some local sodas but better dining can be found by taking a short cab ride into La Fortuna. We stayed over Christmas as... More
