So far I am having a great experience with Hotel La Fortuna. Mercedes and Manrique are extremely helpful and have booked my excursion ahead of time since I will be arriving late night on March 7th. My flight lands at 5:30 pm and I am wondering if anyone is willing to split a private shuttle or taxi? I am willing... More

This hotel was great. Mercedes at the check-in desk was most helpful and the rest of the staff was super friendly. Great location to local shops, restaurants and we had a room with a view of the volcano!

If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place. The bed is hard and the pillow seemed super small. This didn't matter as I was SO tired from all the activities in the area that I simply passed out! It was $5 / night for air conditioning which I found was worth it. The wifi is free in... More

Hotel is located in a center of La Fortuna, very safe and convenient location. I was a solo traveler for the first time (girl) and I didn't have a car. Safety was very important to me and this hotel was just perfect. I had a room with a volcano view, which was very nice. Staff is very friendly, Mercedes is... More

I recently stayed at Hotel La Fortuna for one night while visiting the Arenal/La Fortuna area. I enjoyed my stay there, for the following reasons: 1. The hotel lobby is beautiful and service by the staff (especially Manrique) was excellent. For example, despite a mix-up I encountered involving a reservation I had made online on a travel website (nothing to... More

This hotel is totally cute and central for those without a car or solo. Ask for a room with a volcano view and air conditioning. The people at the front desk - Manrique and Mercedes - are very helpful in booking tours and transportation. Make sure to book the whitewater rafting and Cano Negra trip with them. They have a...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights. First off the hotel is very clean and convenient. It is the tallest building in LaFortuna (i'm pretty sure) and so you cant miss it even if you take the bus like we did. It is 2 blocks from the bus station. It is also away from the... More

I was in room #202, with 2 double beds, no balcony, just fan, tv, free wifi and 3 computer terminals in the lobby. Very little counter space in the bathroom, and only 2 areas to put clothes or other material. Ants were prevalent and came to eat my oatmeal cookies. Good location, walking distance to the centre of town, the... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Hotel La Fortuna for 3 nights. We loved the location of this hotel and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We'd definitely recommend this.

We wanted a room that was convenient to everything, a place where we could walk around and get a feel for the area. This hotel was perfectly located for us. But the most amazing thing of all was the personnel at the reception desk. Mercedes and Manrique couldn't do enough to help us get settled, arrange for tours, taxis, etc.... More
