Really good value stay, the decor and layout is bright, clean and cheerful. Loads of pancakes at breakfast. The kids made good use of the pool. We watched a spectacular thunder storm from the common area next to our room. Quiet at night. Beds comfy. Ticked all my boxes.

We checked into the San Bosco and the front desk staff were wonderful. The room was small but we had crazy amounts of luggage as we are relocating so that didn't help. The pool and the grounds are gorgeous and the free breakfast was wonderful. FYI no phones in the rooms. I would recommend this place as the price was... More

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.
