Loved our three night stay in Fortuna hotel. Bedding is very comfy, location is fantastic, receptionist very sweet. Breakfast is not full or hot but sufficient. Fruit, eggs, pastries. We ate in the room but there were couples enjoying it by the pool. One block to the beach and two blocks to good restaurants. Free parking. Nice pool. Loved watching... More

We booked through Hotels.com. We had a king bed in a single bed room. The room and facility were clean and well taken care of by the staff. We asked for a different room but they were all booked. The air conditioner blew right across the bed. It also didn't really cool off the room because there was not enough... More

I booked here because of the great reviews, free parking and proximity to the beach. I was skeptical about all the positive reviews, but the hotel lived up to the hype. The location was excellent for the price. About a 2 minute walk and you are on the beach. The hotel has umbrellas, towels and a couple of beach chairs... More

Thank you so much for your review!

This hotel is a hidden gem, just a minute walk from beach. Free parking & Wifi. I was pretty impressed by the wifi speed. Room is absolutely clean and well maintained. Only bummer is the breakfast, its just muffins and fruits, no fresh coffee as well. So, don't get fooled by "free continental breakfast". Minus the breakfast, I would definitely... More

All the reviews I read are very positive for this Hotel. All the pics I saw were of very spacious, very roomy accommodations with desks, sofas and some with even kitchenettes. We were placed in a closet with a King size bed in it. Disappointing. I do have to say, the staff is extremely friendly. The Hotel is very immaculate.... More

I've never stayed at a hotel like this before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was happy to find something close to the beach with free parking, no resort fee, and a free continental breakfast. The room was spectacular! I booked a double queen suite, not knowing it would have a full kitchen, with a Keurig too! It... More
