My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Monte Real and we absolutely loved it! Our room was clean with lots of space, and we had a spectacular view if Arenal Volcano! The location was perfect, as well. There was a creek/"frog pond" behind the property, and the hotel was within walking distance to many of La Fortuna's bars and restaurants.... More

Place and staff are terrific! Rooms always clean. Gardeners always letting us know when they have seen something interesting like, iguanas and the sloth up in the trees, or tree and blue jean frogs in the garden. Front desk staff very helpful with planning any and all types of trips and they will call around to get the best deal... More

This motel was central for activities in la fortuna. Rooms are spacious and clean and ours had stunning views of the volcano. There is a small pool on site and a frog pond in the garden. We even spotted a sloth in the trees.

We stayed in a range of 3/4 star hotels in Costa Rica, and this one wine on size of room, fridge and coffee maker! Good position in la fortuna with lots of good restaurants. We ate at the fish restaurant just down the road, whole fried red snapper or sea bass were good. Breakfast place very efficient. It rained overnight... More

Forget the hotel and adventure out back to see the sloths, Iguana, and frogs. Don't touch the poisonous dart frog! Ask the gardener to show you around, we tipped him for his time, but he was happy to take us around. He seems to know where the sloth and Iguana might be. Beds were comfy, A/C worked well and the...

I stayed in Costa Rica for 3 weeks and this was by far one of the best hotels I stayed in! The rooms are huge! as is the bathroom! There was a fridge in the room, (which surprisingly some hotels I stayed in didn't have) defiantly needed in the Costa Rican weather. There was also an easy to use safe... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Monte Real. It was a good location, had clean, comfortable rooms and staff was very helpful. My kids enjoyed the small pool and I appreciated the little forest behind the property were a staff member pointed out a sloth and showed us some frogs. We loved the breakfast at the nearby restaurant.

We really liked the Monte Real. It had a nice little pool, big bathroom, small refrigerator, and comfortable beds. There was a laundry service just around the corner that did a great job for cheap rates. Free breakfast was at a diner down the street and was delicious and filling. The fresh mango juice was amazing. The staff was very... More
