We loved how easy it was to walk everywhere in La Fortuna from our hotel while still being in a quiet, safe area! Our room was clean and we adored the towel animals! From the pictures online, I was concerned the power lines would detract from my photos of the volcano. This was easily avoided by walking a few steps... More

This was probably the best value of any accommodations during the entire Costa Rica trip. We opted for a basic room with two beds in the one story building near the main entrance. The hotel has a huge free breakfast buffet that is very good and generous, it even includes strong quality coffee and fresh juice. The facilities include a... More

All of the hotels in La Fortuna are very basic with maybe only a sheet on the bed. I asked for a blanket and they were accommodating and brought extra pillows as well. The pool is very clean and well maintained. Great proximity to many restaurants. Housekeeping leaves towel animals on the bed every day and that is always fun.

This little hotel is great for travelers on a limited budget. Our family stayed there for two nights and we definitely enjoyed the pool area and proximity to the town center. Our room had a queen and three single beds but not much of a view. One thing you will notice is how clean and well kept this hotel is.... More

It's reasonably priced, has a pool and whirlpool, nice staff and offers a buffet breakfast (which offered beans and rice, scrambled eggs, what I think were fried plantains, fresh fruit, orange and papaya juice, cereal, toast, and good coffee) but I wouldn't stay there again unless kids were in school. Because this place gets tour buses full of adolescents when... More

This hotel was actually very beautiful and they offer breakfast here as well. The breakfast they include is absolutely delicious and the rooms were amazing. They were very cozy and had air conditioning ! (It was very hot and humid) We stayed on the second floor and had an amazing view of the arenal volcano there. We also took one... More
