It's on the main road, and looks ok. We arrived late at night and didn't have time to look around. This place has serious management problems. First they wanted us to wear special bracelets (like daypass at an funpark). Then we had to pay 2 nights in advance + 30 usd deposit in case we would lose the key! At... More

Staff is rude and unfriendly. Rooms are expensive for what you get. It's a miracle tico people can be that unfriendly. Don't go here.

I'm going to state the good things first... There is one, the view of the volcano (although I may want to add anywhere you stay in la fortuna you have a view unless you don't have a window) the staff are incredibly rude!! Except from one lady in the restaurant! "luigi" is a complete con artist with absolutely no interest... More

Well, if you can find something else it would be better, but if you are staying here it is not a total loss. The rooms are very good, and so is the pool and the location. We didn't try lunch or dinner, since the breakfast didn't blow us away really. The real downside of this hotel is their constant 'miscalculations'... More

Though the front desk people were not noticeably welcoming as those in the adjoining restaurant, everything was great. Comfy beds in a clean room. Close to the plaza, good breakfast, and helpfully arranged a tour with Red Lava, which was also amazing.

Great hotel with reasonable fees and good customer service. Awesome view of Volcan Arenal from hotel balcony! Pay just a little extra and you get a filling breakfast. One of the few hotels with hot water!

Don't let the low ranking fool you! This is a perfectly acceptable mid-range place with a very nice restaurant. High end travelers may not like it, but for anyone staying in your average best western or anything in the States or Canada, it holds up perfectly fine. Clean rooms, nice balconies and friendly helpful staff with great english. Fantastic location... More

I arrived with my husband after a long bus journey. Booked in and received a free drink and that free drink was the best thing about our 3 night stay here. You definately get what you pay for. The bed was itchy and the lamps didn't work. We ate in their restaurant on the first evening and the food was... More
