“Very nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Nice place. My room had a nice-sized balcony overlooking downtown so that was a bonus. Very clean and "open air" concept. That is, the floors were exposed to the outside on the street side of the hotel. It made you feel as if you were downtown because you can hear the sounds and see the sights from each floor. Nice chaise lounges on each floor. Internet was perfect and was even free. Nice breakfast. There is a grocery store right next door.

This hotel was our pit stop on a long, leisurely drive from San Jose to the ferry terminal in Puntarenas. The room was an excellent value at $62 USD per night for a two bed suite, and also was equipped with air conditioning. Wifi is free and the signal was adequate in our corner room on the second floor. The premises are cleanly and there is a nice upper deck area with lounge chairs to relax in. The stay was overall quiet, despite being on a road filled with shops and eateries. We ended up parking on the street, but were able to get a space right across fro the hotel. The hotel offers discounted tickets to the hot springs. Breakfast is complimentary and will be enough to get your day going (think scrambled eggs, potatoes, plantains, sausage, fruit, coffee, juice)

Room Tip: Rooms toward the back will likely be quieter than those facing the street.

We really lucked out with this place!
Clean, spacious, and you couldn't get better front desk staff! Above and beyond helpful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Breakfast was yummy, and the location was the best!
Nice to have a comfortable bed, hot water, a/c, and a common area to relax.
The Volcano is in plain view.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone

This hotel is owned by a family tha put a lot of heat in making the place clean, confortable and eco-friendly.

A/C and hot water functionning, very clean, nice terrasse partially covered, very helping staff, delicious breakfast.

Since every activities and tours are very expensive in Fortuna-Arenal, you don't want to pay too much for your hotel. Las Colinas is really the perfect place. Highly recommended.

The front desk staff is wonderful. They will help you with anything you need. The hotel is in good condition considering what you are paying. Rooms are clean and adequately maintained. Open common area was great for us to have a beer (purchased from down the street - LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION) and watch the April storms.

Downsides? Light/noise from the road. No point deduction as it didn't bother us much as we were tired from walking around! I could see it disturbing very light sleepers, especially during high season.

The staff is attentive and speaks English, Spanish, and German. The rooms are excellent and comfortable, the tropical setting is beautiful, and the food in the restaurant is delicious. I recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Atenas.

This hotel was in a great location and I can't say enough about the friendly staff. The staff was willing to help with every request and question. The breakfast was great and the room was nice and clean. The rooms are simple, but you don't need much in this area with so much to do. There are many restaurants and bars within walking distance and the patio area was our favorite! It was so nice to sit out there with an amazing view of the volcano. Thank you!
