Hotel La Fortuna is not just about a very friendly, spotless and comfortable place to stay, it’s at a great location and many of its rooms have the breathtaking view of Arenal Volcano, and most of all, its incredibly nice staff and efficient breakfast service.
The best way to find a great eatery is always from the place you stay because you can articulate your likes and the suggestions are almost spot on. Excellent service from Mercedes from the front desk - she's super friendly, nice, and genuine. She's also very knowledgeable of the area as I always love to find Tico food and places to have a great cup of Costa Rican coffee. She gave such detailed descriptions, sprinkling with her heritage. That’s how I found out Visquez for the casado and Café Rain Forest for its Monteverde coffee!
The hotel was very clean and the marble floor was spotless. The bed was super comfortable and I just love waking with the view of the volcano.
The breakfast service downstairs started at 7am and even with I had to leave rather early each day around 7:30am, they were nice enough to quickly prepare some delicious eggs, toast and tasty coffee.
This hotel is only a couple blocks away from 2 supermarkets where you can get all the coffee beans and any amenities you might need. It’s also a couple blocks away from the main plaza, making it convenient to get to all the shops, yet keep a quiet and less crowded feel.
And if you pay a bit more attention, you will see the owner around as well as in the area.
