We had a booking in another hotel, but cancelled after checking in as it was not good. Luckily got this accommodation, out of the blue. Property is in the middle of La Fortuna town but away from all hustle bustle. This is actually a big house and a part of that converted into suites. All Major eating joints just 2-5... More

My husband and I recently stayed at La Fortuna Suites for a couple of nights while passing through - I wish we could have stayed longer! We were greeted at the front gate by Ian, the property owner/manager, who got us settled in a nice room (clean, super soft bed, hot water shower, kitchenette) and brought up a delicious smoothie...

We booked a double room a month ahead of our trip to Costa Rica via email. We even got kindly asked what room type we would prefer and got the reservation confirmed. However, the day we arrived and rang at the gate, there was no one opening the door. When we noticed someone sitting on the beautiful terrace, we tried... More

Thanks for voicing out your opinion. It allows businesses like this one to re-evaluate the quality of service we give to our guest and improve guest expectations. Its good to have different perspectives which allows us see things differently and make changes accordingly. However, I think there may be a mistake or misunderstanding. I am the Manager and Co-owner. No... More

What a wonderful place to stay. They were formerly apartments, so they are big. They have a private bedroom, family room and kitchen. It is a very clean, up to date apartment. It is an inexpensive stay and worth much more than they charge. The owners are very kind and work with you on times and check out.

I'm pleased that you approve and really enjoyed your stay. The Suites are spacious and is like a home away from home some guest say. People really like the 40" Flatscreen and the hotels location on a quiet street just 2 blocks from Downtown. More

We booked La Fortuna Suite a number of months in advance, but it turned, after our booking had been confirmed that our host Ian received an invite to his brother's wedding in Canada and this coincided with our arrival.

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying at La Fortuna Suites for a few days over Semana Santa and it was great! Ian, the manager, was very helpful with answering logistical questions and booking tours in the surrounding area. Our room was clean and comfortable.
