“comfortable, friendly, great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Villas Vilma is right on the fringes of La Fortuna heading towards the volcano. We were first attracted by the colorful cabins and beautiful landscaping. On impulse, we checked in and got a private room with two double beds for $50 per night. It was pouring rain but the jacuzzi has a roof, so we spent an hour there quite pleasantly. The grounds are beautiful.

The room itself was great for the price. It has its own porch with benches and a hammock, refrigerator and coffee maker, two comfortable, clean beds, and a private bathroom and shower. We had AC, WiFi, and a TV with many channels. It was very secure.

The staff were very helpful with recommendations and answered all of our questions. I speak fluent Spanish, which of course helps, but my boyfriend does not and the staff spoke good English. They helped us book a hot springs trip at a discounted rate and they helped us with directions. Breakfast was an extra $6 and well worth it!

We had a wonderful stay and even spent a night longer than we were planning to. The hotel was an incredible value and a great find.

We stayed here for three nights and absolutely loved it! The rooms were very clean, AC blew really nice cold air, the bathrooms were clean, the service was really good, and the location was very nice too. The hotel staff will help with any question you have and the breakfast in the morning is incredible! definetly worth a stay if youre staying in La Fortuna!

This was an awesome find on our trip. Super clean and comfortable hotel run by a nice Tico family. This was a great value for the price. The breakfast at the neighboring hotel was super as well. awesome to watch hummingbirds flit about the beautiful pool side setting. Beautiful gardens

Guided by Tripadvisor reviews we stopped here for a night on the way to Arenal volcano. Properly well kept and has beautiful volcano view. Manicured lawn, beautiful flowers, stone pawed walkways, big pool and jacuzzi. Clean rooms with quiet split room ac systems installed, showers with plenty of hot water.

Villas Vilma is a ten unit travlers motel that provides a resort feel at a very fair price. Being located right on the major road gives you quick access to municipal buses and local businesess. The staff is helpful and the grounds are kept manicured by a master gardener. The Black Rock travlers motel next door provides an american breakfast. Don't forget to see the peacocks and the back three acres of typical volcanoe terrain landscape. Vilma's pool and covered hot tub is a pleasure generous in size and its appealing setting.

Lovely place to stay, great value for money well recommended. Great pool and hot tub. Staff very friendly. Room spacious and comfortable.
Great view of the volcano. More like apartments than hotel rooms. Good restaurants nearby. Very clean and well looked after.
