This place has good security and some fine touches alongside more rustic features. Ian is anxious to help with any item or advice that you need. Good breakfast on nice balcony with view of Volcan Arenal.

Loved this place. Rooms are large and clean and the views from the balcony over the volcano are beautiful. Ian is a brilliant host, always happy to help and give recommendations about the local area. Breakfast each morning was great.

Ian is an excellent host, nice rooms with a great view of Arenal Volcano while eating a good breakfast in a quite relaxed location. Only a 5 minute walk to local restaurants and shops . I recommend this place and will be staying at La Fortuna Suites again. Thank you for a pleasant experience.

The room itself is split into three main areas 1. A lounge cum kitchen area; the lounge area has a large TV with access to loads of films/TV...

Ian prepared breakfast every morning and had a great knowledge of the activities to do in the area. He was kind in booking reservations for us when needed and had wonderful, authentic restaurant recommendations. The room was clean, comfortable and large. I would for sure stay there again.

Ian the owner was a great host! Breakfast each morning was lovely as well. Highly recommend staying here. Also highly suggest the hiking trail tours that Ian recommended with Giovanni. Five minutes away and you will see more animals than any other tour.

Thanks for taking the time to leave me and Giovanni a Review. Giovanni's trail offers a lot of wildlife to see. Poison dart frogs, red-eyed tree frogs, sloths, Toucans of several types, and up to 11 or more of tropical bird species. Best bet to see wildlife is at Giovanni's trail!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Ian's place. The view was incredible. The breakfast outstanding and Ian went out of his way to help. I had fallen in Tamarindo before coming to La Fortuna and ended up at a clinic to find out that I had broken a bone in my foot. Ian was a saint as he...

I'm glad you enjoyed our breakfasts. We try to serve something different each day to keep things new! You sure were a trooper going around for several days with a broken foot. I remember you being in good spirits the whole way through. I'm glad we got that taken care of and that it didn't ruin your trip.
