“Arenal views - good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We spent 2 nights here, family of 3. Friendly staff, clean rooms, hot shower. Breakfast incl at the restaurant next door, limited menu but very good and friendly. Pool and patio were enjoyed, although it was a little cool when we were there. Arenal cleared only a few times for a picture. A short drive to La Fortuna and hot spring attractions in the area. Great wood working studio down the street, lowest priced, good quality wood souvenirs - salad bowls etc. Very nice location, great value, quiet when we were there. Would definitely stay here again.

Basically the best experience one can get in this beautiful Costa Rican adventure town of La Fortuna. Awesome close location to Arenal, a tad away from downtown so its quiet, beautiful (only like 5-10 min walk to dt?). Overall best value and quality.

Great value motel, very clean and direct view of the volcano. Jenny was really helpful and booked some trips for us which gave us a discount. The restaurant next door was good too. You can walk into La Fortuna from this hotel but it is quite a long way.

My two young children and I stayed there one night. Jennie at the front desk was very welcoming and informative. The other gentleman in the front office was also very friendly and helpful with unloading our luggage. Jennie made phone calls to line up hotel reservations, zipline tours, etc. for me. This hotel has a breakfast arrangement with the restaurant just across the driveway. The restaurant owners were cordial, and their food was delicious. Internet and cable are available in the rooms. The hotel in conveniently located across the street from a supermarket, so it was easy to walk over there and stock up on snacks and drinks for the road. There was some road noise inside the room, as is probably the case with all of the hotels that line the road to La Fortuna. The noise did not bother us while we slept. The only unfortunate thing was that the jacuzzi was cold. However, with Baldi, Tavacon, and the bridge natural hotsprings just a few minutes away, there's no real need for a jacuzzi. By the way, Baldi day use tickets (From 10am-10pm) are only $30 if you buy them from Hotel Vista del Cerro. I had mistakenly purchased them from another hotel for $38. If you buy them Baldi directly, they're $49.

we stayed at vista del cerro late April 2012. There was 6 of us in our party. The hotel has friendly staff willing to give you good tips on "what to do" during your stay in La Fortuna. We took their advice and were very happy with our 2-day long visit in La Fortuna! the hotel is on the main street leading out to Arenal, so expect to hear road noise in the morning. We had our free breakfast at the Soda attached to the hotel, food was good, and people were friendly. overall, a wonderful trip, we would stay here again!
