We researched hotels and excursions before deciding to book this one. After the reviews we read, the positive seemed to outweigh the negative. The hotel booked our excursions for us, and they DO NOT try to rip you off as some reviewers have posted. We researched excursions on our own and the prices were the same. Prices of excursions change, and when we checked in, they let us know that the book of excursions needed to be updated and prices were different than December so there were no surprises. The staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations.
We had a room facing the street and did not have a problem with street noise (we live in a neighborhood with college frats). The noise goes away at night. If you are planning on spending a lot of time in your room and think the noise will bother you, you shouldn't be planning a trip to La Fortuna....there is too much to do and see in the area to waste your time in the room.
If you are out at night, or need out at night, the security guard will open the doors for you.
There is a grocery next door and many restaurants within a short walking distance. We took taxis to locations outside of town and were never once cheated by a taxi driver.
The only negative was that coffee is only available during breakfast hours and there is not a coffeemaker in the room.
There is an excellent view of the volcano, and each day, the view is different depending on the cloud cover so be prepared to take pictures of the view every day and several times a day.
