Locate just outside of La Fortuna (~30 min walk to town), before you get to the big hot $pring resort$. Inexpensive choice, free breakfast and wifi, clean rooms with TV, private porch with volcano view, or relax at the end of the day in the pool and jaccuzzi, also with view of the volcano. Friendly staff, although some had trouble with english. They run ATV tours off the property, but since I was out exploring most of the day, didn't bother me.
Decent restaurant onsite. There are also a couple of others within a few minutes walk, so you don't need to make the trek to town.

My wife, daughter, and I went to the La Pradera on the advice of a friend. The stay overall was excellent. The accomodations were simple, but clean. The beds were comfortable, the cabin was spotlessly clean (the maid did an excellent job and made some of those "towel sculptures" as a nice touch), and the air conditioner worked well. The water pressure was so-so, but enough to shower in. The staff receptionists (Norabeth, Joanna, and Ebony) were very polite, and tended to several requests we had (calling a taxi, checking on shuttles, etc.). Despite my lack of Spanish expertise, we were all able to communicate, and the experience was pleasant. The same can be said for Jacqueline the waitress- a very pleasant tica who did a good job. The food in the restaurant was good, and the fruit (especially the locally grown pineapple) was out of this world.The hotel grounds and scenery all around is breathtaking in its beauty. I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants an affordable yet pleasant lodging experience.

Room Tip: We had one of the cabins, and it was very nice.

The was the first time I had stayed at La Pradera. This hotel came highly recommended from our friends in Manuel Antonio and they were right! We arrived late afternoon and all of our rooms were ready and were very clean. We had 5 rooms. The staff was super friendly, the room super clean, and the restaurant staff was wonderful! The first day we arrived it was raining and the volcano was not visable due to the cloud cover, however the next morning when we awoke and stepped outside our front door, the Volcano was crystal clear without a cloud in sight! WOW!!! Amazing view! The grounds of this hotel were well manicured and we were very impressed with the large hot tub and beautiful swimming pool. We would definately stay here again if in this area!
Thank you for making our trip a memorable one!

Room Tip: The rooms on the first row next to the pool have the best view of the Volcano

During our travels around Costa Rica, we were very fortunate to stay for 2 nights at Hotel La Pradera. Our bungalow, while surrounded on either side by other bungalows in close proximity, seemed very secluded. The hotel grounds were beautifully maintained with the added bonus of a pool & jacuzzi. The food in the restaurant was delicious, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The best part about this hotel is the view of Arenal. We were able to enjoy the view from our private porch!! Highly recommend staying here if you visit the area!!!

This hotel had been recommended and booked for us by Carlos Jimenez, of Monteverde Welcome Center and Casa Batsu. It was an excellent recommendation. We had a superior room facing Arenal Volcano, which loomed above us. We had a beautiful garden right outside our door and only a short walk to the swimming pool and huge outdoor jacuzzi. Our large room had very comfortable beds, a refrigerator, and the huge bath had hot and cold running water (not always available in Costa Rican hotels) and a combination jacuzzi, bathtub and shower. The complimentary breakfasts were quite good as well. You could have your choice of an American, Costa Rican or Continental breakfast. We were close to a laundry and Baldi Hot Springs and Resort. We think that this was an excellent location on the main highway.
