This is an interesting place to stay in. The hotel is a short walk (5-10 minutes depending on your abilities) through a mainly residential area to the centre of the town, where a number of bars and eateries plus tourist related shopping can be found. The walk, even in the night, is fairly well lit and certainly not threatening for...

I came not knowing what to expect and was treated to pleasant surroundings on the edge of La Fortuna. It is only a 7-10 minute walk to the city's Central Park. The cabins are modest, but neat and clean. Being made of wood, the walls are mostly dark, so when closing the curtains, one must use the relatively dim overhead...

Fantastic accommodations, grounds, and (free) breakfast! Each room is a private bungalow tucked away from the hustle and bustle of town but still within walking distance to all available amenities. Hotel staff are friendly and accommodating and rooms are clean and comfortable. Did I mention breakfast was delicious? Would definitely stay again, thank you!

The property is well maintained and there is a great view of Arenal Volcano. We didn't have a car and it was a quick walk to the square in La Fortuna - 5 to 7 minutes. The cabins were spacious, however the A/C seemed to be programmed to turn off after and hour or so, which was annoying through the...

I like to give good reviews and focus on the positives and this place does have positives. I can only echo what others have said. The grounds are spectacular and it is close to town if you have a car. If you come by bus it is long walk to town. They had the nicest breakfast of all the places...

HOT! Sketchy air conditioning. Rock hard beds. Showers with almost no water pressure. Clean. Nice. Great breakfast buffet with pancakes and egg station. Close to town and lots of restaurants and tourist stuff. Gorgeous grounds. Small pool with too much chorine. Fantastic view of volcano. Honestly it is so big I doubt there is a bad view for miles....

Very clean and cosy individual cabins. We had no 14 giving a view towards the volvano. Nice and rather large swimmingpool. Lovely small garden with many flowers, bananas and birds. No wifi in the room - you need one of the cabins close to the reception to get wifi. There were too many people at breakfast when it opened at...

Very cute and clean cabins. This lodge had the best beds throughout our entire travels. We had no issues falling asleep. The breakfast buffet was delicious and the staff was super friendly. The internet could only be used on the porch or right next to the reception building. Overall a great place to stay. Just a quick 15 to 10...

Accommodating staff, lovely grounds. No wifi in the rooms which is not so great but decent selection of TV. Bedding could use replacement (clean but worn). Good atmosphere, walking distance to town. I'd have appreciated bottled water and shampoo/conditioner in the shower (there is a combo soap/shampoo dispenser). Lots of birds. If you are a wifi addict like I am...
