This review is a bit overdue as we were in La Fortuna in Sept/Oct 2009. We loved this hotel! We were greeted with a cocktail and hand towel upon arrival and the staff were very welcoming. The hotel is gated so you know you're safe (even though you pretty much feel safe everywhere in Costa Rica anyways). We loved the contemporary decor of the hotel and it looked fairly new and always clean. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was fantastic - it was like a spa shower! It was spacious and had one of those showerheads mounted at the top with various settings! We dinned in the restaurant and really enjoyed the food. The hotel breakfast was abundant and the fruits were so fresh! Pool and grounds were beautiful. The location: it was not really close to anything but a lot of the nice hotels are like this in this area. Royal Corin is on a street that a lot of hotels are located (but they are not side by side as the properties are large and separated by empty land). We found that the location didn't make a huge difference in this area because all tour companies pick you up at the hotel anyways. We did go into town a few times and took a cab which was reasonably priced - it was about 5 to 10 minutes out, depending on where you go.
German, at the front desk, was very helpful in giving us local advice and suggestions for activities, which they also book for you.
We loved this hotel and would highly recommend it. We would stay here again if we're back in La Fortuna!
