Family run, incredibly friendly and accommodating hotel. Good pool and jacuzzi, nice rooms with small outside sitting area. You may want to have a car to make the most of this place. Sadly, the restaurant was closed due to COVID
The staff were so friendly and flexible and stayed late for us when we experienced a major delay!!! The property is beautiful! I would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to the area!!!
The young lady who take care of us made this property really distinctive. Useful tips on Arenal planning, directions and in general very helpful. We all also really enjoyed the terrific breakfast. The location is very central to restaurants, the hot springs and activities like canyoning.
Pros - good location, staff responsive to issues, nice grounds. Neat, clean. Air conditioning. Shallow pool and hot tub. Great view of Arenal. Only a few rooms in the whole place Cons - road noise, duplexes had zero sound insulation- could hear neighbors talking, and they were trying to be quiet. Had 2 kinds of ants in the bathroom, sugar ants coming in thru shower window and black ants coming in thru small area of broken grout in corner of the floor. I expected bugs in Costa Rica but this is the only place (out of 5) that had a problem. Fixed the black ants by stuffing toilet paper in the hole and suggested they calk it. Had to use What'sApp to contact staff, who is across the street, not on the grounds. Had to be at the pool for wi-fi to work, even though our room was 10 feet from the pool. Other - breakfast is at cafe across the street. Other hotels in area have restaurants open for dinner in walking distance. As far as I can tell, this is someones house that they added a 6 unit hotel to the part of same property, then hired out management of it to Natura Park across the street.…
The rooms are well taken care of. The batroom was neat and clean and the customer service was extraordinary. We also had the chance to visit the nature park in front and it was gorgeous! One of the best places to stay in La Fortuna.
