“a diamond in the rough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

All I can say about this place is WOW, I can't believe that this place isn't more popular. It is so close to anything that you want in La Fortuna. You are within a 5 min walk to the heart of the town and all of the tour pick up spots. While I was there I didn't spend a lot of time in the rooms because i was out experiencing all that costa rica has to offer. But when i was in the rooms they were always clean and the staff was always helpful with giving me advice on where the good local spots were. Unlike a lot of the larger resorts you can get a more personal and local experience at Casitas Goonga. If you are looking of a affordable place in a great location, this place is a great alternative to the more expensive resorts.

Room Tip: try and get a room on the second floor, you get a awesome view of the volcano.

I loved these apartments. They are in the heart of La Fortuna. In an incredible location. They include a kitchen, full baths and other amenities that most places lack. As a person who travels a lot, having a mini apartment, across from a big creek, in La Fortuna, close to the Arenal Volcano was amazing. Nothing was better than waking up, looking out the window and seeing the magnificent volcano, or seeing the toucans. It is close to many restaurants being that is close to the heart of La Fortuna. Also being able to walk to the heart of town, and go on tours without having to take a long bus ride was amazing. I highly recommend this place. It is family owned and the man who runs it, Junior, is very genuine and caring. I could not have asked for a better place to enjoy my vacation in paradise.

Room Tip: Pick the rooms on the North side, and farther in from the street. This will minimize noise, and allo...
