We recently stayed 2 nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. When I was booking the room, I had a hard time figuring out the difference between the standard room and the deluxe. I ended up booking the deluxe since it was only $10 more and I'm glad we did. The standard rooms are lower on the slope and don't have as great of a view of the volcano. We stayed in room 108 and had a great view of the volcano. Keep in mind also, the standard rooms are all connected while the deluxe rooms are their own separate little bungalow.
Overall the hotel was VERY clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. TIP - if you are planning any tours, be sure to just book it when you get to the hotel instead of in advance since you get a bit of a discount for booking with them at the time of your stay.
We also ate at the restaurant our first night since we were too tired to check out La Fortuna and we were happily surprised. They served our favorite ceviche and arroz y pollo so we highly recommend checking them out. The prices aren't the cheapest but they were pretty standard for the touristy restaurant places.
