We were put in this hotel as part of a tour in Costa Rica and whilst it is very central to La Fortuna and therefore good for the restaurants at night, we felt it was more suited to back packers than middle aged travellers. The rooms were clean, yet basic and there were no flowers or towel arrangements in our rooms like those shown in some of the pictures.
We felt quite unsafe in the hotel as their is public access via 2 walk ways straight to the open plan stairs that lead to the rooms. After a certain time of the evening there is no one on reception to see straying visitors! When the reception staff are there they are extremely helpful and advised us on good trips to go on.
Sure enough there is a great view from the balcony of the Arenal Volcano, suggest get up early to take pictures before the cloud sets in. Pity the views from the room balconies are not so pretty.
So whilst probably an ideal hotel and location for back packers, there are many more nicer hotels in La Fortuna even though a little further out of town.
