Beautiful pool area with nice swim up bar. Nicely landscaped. Inside the rooms were dark and uninviting. There was one dimly lit ceiling light. I asked for another reading lamp but was told there was only one per room. Did get the second one with a 60 watt bulb. There is a coffee maker in the room but you have... More

If you're looking for luxury, or used to it, this probably isn't the place. The rooms were fine - no complaints at all - but you stay here for the view, and proximity to La Fortuna and its restaurants. We (2 teens) were perfectly happy here. Pool was nice, pool bar, too. Views 10/10. Would stay again, no regrets, though... More

Rooms were clean, staff was very accomodating. Once couple in our group had not upgraded to the Junior Suite, however upon checkin, the desk clerk noticed and... More

hotel would be greatly improved with hot water in the Jacuzzi by the pool. Short distance to downtown area for shopping. Would stay at this property again when visiting La Fortuna. The Peruvian restaurant on the way to centro was excellent.

Overall, our stay was about what I expected. The room was clean, beds reasonably comfortable (except for pillows), the property was in a good location, the staff was friendly, the included breakfast was good, and the pool was well-maintained. On the down side, our air-conditioner didn't work so we had to sleep with the patio door open - fortunately no... More

Room was clean and spacious, view was spectacular. Staff at hotel were all pleasant and helpful, would definitely stay there again and recommend to a friend. Pay a bit more and stay on the 3rd floor....well worth the small extra amount.
