I stayed here for two nights and was happy with the accommodations. It seemed very close to most attractions and I was told a ride into La Fortuna city center would cost $5. I didn't have time to explore the town, but would go back. The view of the Volcano was amazing! The breakfast was really good too!

This is was the third time I stayed at La Pradera. The hotel is in a great location about 25 minutes from the town of La Fortuna where there are restaurants, coffee and souvenir shops, available tours, pharmacies, bus station etc. etc. It has a cool vibe especially at night. Since my last visit in 2014, the hotel has enlarged...

The flowers and birds at this property was fabulous. Very clean and nice lodging. Big, clean pool. Nice and helpful staff. You can't beat the price. The wifi was a little sketchy in the bungalows - but no big deal. Not a bad walk to stores and restaurants. We loved our stay here.

This place has very clean rooms and beautiful landscaping for just sitting outside and watching the pretty birds fly by. Simple rooms, but clean and comfortable. The front desk and maid were very accommodating. However, the restaurant has terrible service. I came in by myself for an early dinner, no other customers were there, I waited 20min. for a salad...

We stayed in a mountain view cabin at La Pradera. We had room 48. That was the best room on the property with a full view of the volcano. The breakfasts were very good, the pool facilities where super clean and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and organizing tours and activities was super simple. The locations fantastic.

From outside the door the volcano was right in front . The room was spacious , comfortable and a major plus was the firm mattress ! The main road is nearby but the room was not noisy . Front desk was friendly and very helpful. Would have given them a five star review but the food is average at best....

We only stayed one night in this hotel, but would have stayed longer. The view of the volcano is amazing! The rooms were clean. The hotel staff are extremely pleasant and helpful.

What a great hotel!! Loved the cabins which faced the volcano-- great food, friendly, helpful staff, beautiful surroundings. No complaints whatsoever. Just right!! We used it as a base for other adventures, but could have just stayed there, hiked around and lounged around the grounds.
