My husband and I spent 3 nights here last week in the suite adjoining the terrace. We had a bedroom, a living room/kitchen area, a refrigerator, a microwave and a bath with a shower. The hosts provided organic shampoo and soap. Beds were very comfortable and air-conditioning worked great in the bedroom. It was convenient to have a table in the living room where we could use our laptop and download pictures. There were also tables on the terrace that were convenient for laptop use. The plates/silverware came in handy when we bought extra fruit. Breakfast was served on the terrace. Fresh fruit, juice, eggs, toast, fresh avocado and coffee. Everything was top quality and excellent. We will always have great memories of those breakfasts with the view of Arenal in the clouds. There was a sink in the garden below the stairs leading to the terrace where you could rinse off shoes if they were muddy. Robert and Jessy anticipated our every need. The smoothies on arrival were very refreshing. They had coffee for us on afternoons when we were exhausted after long hikes. They helped us make reservations for a night tour, and reserved a taxi for us whenever we needed one. We did not rent a car, but their place is located two blocks from the main drag so it's an easy walk to stores and restaurants. The neighboring homes have a pear tree, an orange tree and a lemon tree - all of which attract birds. In addition, Robert put out fresh fruit in the feeder every day. We saw iguanas (3 feet long or larger, bright orange and green), and black vultures in the distant trees in every direction. At the bird feeder and on the nearby trees we saw palm tanagers, blue-grey tanagers, Passerini's tanagers, clay colored robins, baltimore orioles, Great kiskadees, tropical kingbirds, social flycatchers, buff-breasted Saltators, several species of hummingbirds, and green and red legged honeycreepers. The chestnut-mandibled toucans showed up one evening on the trees at the edge of the forest directly facing the property. It was a treat to hear them calling out across the valley in response to others in the distance.
I really hope I can return some day to La Fortuna Suites!
