We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the pool at the end of the day. Breakfast expensive and slow and poor! Very pretty girls serving though!! Rooms strangely arranged so no real furniture, had to sort out onto the spare bed, If 4 to a room it would be difficult. Welcome coffee machine and fridge. Plenty of hot water. Far... More

Nice Hotel in walking distance from downtown. Quiet place at night with beautiful gardens and a good view of the Volcano. Nice place to visit with your Family or loved ones. Any time at La Fortuna this is my first choice. :-)

I have never been to such a run down, unacceptable property EVER. My family of 15 were excited to spend our Christmas vacation in Costa Rica. The inn is surrounded by an unpaved road, very dangerous, with loose stones (my mother lost her footing several times), unlit in the evening (we needed to use the light from our cell phones... More

This hotel was included in a package we purchased through Grey Line. The room had A/C, small tv, coffee maker, and small fridge. It was very quiet when we stayed but I think that was only because it was low season and not too many people were there. They include breakfast which is not buffet style. You order from a... More

We stayed in Country Inn in August 2014. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and clean. It was equipped with two double beds, so I think the rooms would also be perfectly suitable for a family of four. We had an A/C, tv, fan, coffee maker and even a small refrigerator, which I really...

Background: As part of a 3-week volcano trek across Central America, our tour group stayed at this country inn while in La Fortuna de San Carlos. PROS: It's far enough from the drunken maddening tourist crowd and yet its proximity to the town centre is a very big plus. Nice individual bungalow-type cottages spread out in the property like a...
