“Very nice La Fortuna Costa Rica Hotel”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Last week my son and I stayed at the Hotel Las Colinas in La Fortuna, Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica. We stayed in a large room with two beds which included breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was comparable to breakfasts in larger well known chain hotels with eggs (scrambled or cooked to order), beans, rice, sausage, toast, fruits, juice and coffee. The location is in the heart of La Fortuna. I would also like to point out the friendly staff.

The greatest pleasure for me was the patio on the second floor. There was a tour staying there as well as people from all over the globe. In the evening we sat out on the patio with an incredible view of the volcano and met most of the people staying there. It is a great place to relax, either reading or talking to other guests.

If you are staying in La Fortuna I would highly recommend this hotel.

We just got back from an amazing trip to Costa Rica, three days of which were spent at Las Colinas. The staff was incredibly helpful and set us up with some amazing local excursions. Plenty of hot water, complementary breakfast and the view from the terrace was spectacular. It's right in the middle of the city with a super market only two blocks away and about a 15 minute drive from the volcano and hot springs. Highly recommend this hotel, especially for the price!

Very clean - within walking distance of great food and stores. Really enjoyed the breakfast each morning. The deck was nice and had it not been so cloudy we would have had a great view of Arenal Volvanon. Several tours would pick up from the hotel lobby.

This hotel was located half a block away from the central park and downtown main street. The staff were helpful and obliging and they had a really good breakfast included in the reasonable price . They had a first floor deck that is very nice and gives you a wonderful frontal view of the Arenal Volcano

This place was in the best location - close to everything. The room was plain & small, exactly what you pay for. Don't expect anything fancy - only 1 towel/person. Nice to have a 'rooftop deck', where you can lounge around if you don't want to be stuck in your room. Wifi is ok, breakfast was great! Definitely don't book/take advice regarding attractions/things to do from the front desk - they will totally rip you off. Shop around outside the hotel & bargain!

Thank you for your review!
We have a tour desk where all guest can be able to make reservations and the charges to their total bill, that way guest may use the credit card only one time.
As a certified and responsabile hotel, We only work with certified tour operators, than not only offer a ¨guide and a mini bus¨, guest can be sure than making reservations with us, they can have security, insurance and of course ¨quality¨. 3 Important things than is rare to get when you buy a tour at the streets offices.

Our rates are exactly the same rates you will find directly in the tour operator company, tour guest is just an extra service for our guests!

Thank you.

...especially after staying at a disgusting place in Alajuela for one night. The hotel is conveniently located, is clean, and has very friendly, helpful staff. It's not a plush, five-star hotel, but we couldn't have afforded such accommodations anyway. Given what we could afford, this place was perfect. It felt like our welcoming refuge after our adventures around Arenal and La Fortuna.

Light sleepers should note that there was a lot of street noise, but that is more about the nightlife in that area of Arenal than the hotel itself. The breakfast was really good too...we actually looked forward to it.

The staff at the hotel played a huge role in our trip being as wonderful as it was. They provided accurate and helpful information, and were honest about which activities were better than others. If I go back to that area of Costa Rica, I'll stay at Las Colinas again. After only two nights at Las Colinas, I left with a true sense of loyalty borne from exceptional personalized attention and comfortable quarters. Good, good people and a homey place to stay.
