We spent two nights here as a base to visit the Volcano. Excellent location, 5 minutes walk from the small town of La Fortuna with some rooms having a good view of the Volcano. This is a small hotel in a side street and our first impressions on pulling up at the front was a bit disconcerting. However the rooms... More

I would definitely recommend this place. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were well kept, modern and functioning AC. The pool was tiny but lots of fun, and the setting was really nice; just outside of town, and by a stream with lots of wildlife. Stay here if you're looking for a reasonable price for a great place...

This hotel does everything right. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the property is immaculate. The best part, however, is the service provide by the front desk, Daniel and Patricia (and one other whose name I did not catch). They were always friendly, very knowledgeable about the entire area and happy to help share experiences or arrange trips. There... More

We only had one night here so really didn't take full benefit of the hotel. There is a small pool, beautiful gardens with a triceratops. I am sure you would spot wildlife here. A couple of good restaurants within a 5 minute walk, breakfast is served at Soda el Rio (restaurant close by) and was very good

For the price, this place was fantastic. It is only a 10 minute walk from the city center, but so worth it because the grounds and pool are so beautiful. Our room and bathroom were huge, and we enjoyed the balcony. The staff was great. They gave great suggestions and recommendations for different activities, taxi services etc. The breakfast was...

This hotel looks like a dump from the first glance. Once you go into the room. It is clean, comfortable and the AC works. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is only a 10 minute walk from the city centre. The price is reasonable and you get a welcome drink.

We stayed two nights here and absolutely loved it. The pool was perfect to wind down in after a busy day of hiking. The location was such an easy walking distance into town without being too close. The breakfast down the street was delicious. We loved the bacon! The room had a refrigerator which was nice, and the bed was... More

We stayed 4 nights here. We had a volcano view room with private balcony. We were give vouchers each day for the following morning's breakfast just up the street at El Rio. It is less than a 5 minute walk, and the breakfasts were big portions (I couldn't finish mine). The two gentlemen I spoke with in the reception office... More

After a couple nights in a really hot hotel this one was way cooler. Right my la fortuna market and near a beautiful volcano its an awesome place and definitely worth staying. If you get the chance stop here and see the sights the market is really cool.
