Las Colinas is perfectly located in La Fortuna - not on the main street but one to the side with a view of the Volcan Arenal - note the pictures we saw of the volcano from the hotel did not include the 3 telecoms poles that must have been photoshopped out.
The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and the rooms clean. When we arrived our air-conditioning broke down and they had someone out (at the weekend) to fix it straight away.
Breakfast was included and the terrace on the first floor was a nice place to relax. Wifi was available in the room and there was cable TV for those interested.
We stayed 2 nights which was plenty in La Fortuna enough time to take a long walk to the waterfall and if you want a volcano hike,
The only negative about the hotel from our perspective were the sheets on the beds. They did not fit the mattress properly so within a couple of minutes the under sheet was all tangled up leaving you sleeping on the mattress which wasn't particularly pleasant or comfortable.
Opposite the hotel was the Soda Viquez where they serve massive and casados - the best we've had in Costa Rica so far - there really was enough for 2 people!
