For 4 people spending three nights in one of the most touristy places in Costa Rica, this hotel has an unbeatable price. Picking lodging here in La Fortuna just depends on what your looking for: if you want luxurious lodge replete with thermal baths and room service, San Bosco is not the place for you. However, if you want simple...

Close to Arenal, the waterfall, and other attractions. It is a comfortable place to stay if you plan on doing any nearby adventure tours. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is good, nice local restaurants are within walking distance.

Great price with a good breakfast included, well-maintained pool and jacuzzi area with a take-out window to the next door sushi place. A wonderful view of the volcano is visible from the pool deck. The rooms were air conditioned with a great ceiling fan, so good that I was able to get cold at night. For some reason you can't...

The hotel is a good location if you don't have a car. Close to restaurant, shops etc. It's clean, safe and comfortable. Breakfast was usual for this type of hotel. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We had a room upstairs, not as noisy as main floor. Some people are up early for their tours.

Love it, we've stayed here many times and plan to return. Great view of the volcano from the observation deck, just a block from the central park and all the action while the property is very private and quiet.

Arenal itself is a nice place to stay (somewhat reminiscent of Queenstown in New Zealand). The room was comfortable and there was an excellent view of the volcano and en exquisitly clear morning. During the day, we took in a high-level bridge walk, and hot springs bath.
