Hotel La Pradera
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2013

At La Fortuna, we stayed at a nice 3 star hotel called La Pradera. It was not as expensive as the other hotels near by, however the location (with a direct view to the volcano and 2 min drive from Baldi hot springs), the great facilities and rooms (2 hot tubs, a nice swimming pull) and the best cocktails we had during the entire trip made it one of the best hotels we stayed in at Costa Rica.

We stayed here through booking our trip with the amazing Green Creation Costa Rica Travel Agency. The compound was pretty and just what we needed for a night's stay. Very close to Baldi hot springs where we had spent a fun afternoon, and we spent a sunny morning at the Pradera's amazing poolside getting to know one of the coolest bartenders we met on the trip! The typico breakfast was also delicious and included in the stay.

We only got to stay for one night as we had a packed itinerary. It was a stunning here. Especially at night time when we had a swim and then a few drinks outside out bungalow with great views of the volcano.

La Pradera was one of our best Costa Rica surprises. We booked with nominal expectation and were delighted by the clean, comfortable room, excellent pool and outdoor hot tubs, warm and friendly restaurant and bar service, reasonable prices, and convenient ($4/taxi) access to downtown La Fortuna. I forgot my bathing suit on the bathroom doorknob and got total cooperation in later effort to recover it. If I return to the Arenal area, this is where I'd stay.

Very well situated with view on the volcano. Large rooms in separate bungalows. Very nice and friendly staff. Beautiful clean pools, room as well. Wifi available. One of the best hotels we stayed in. We only had breakfast but is was very good.

La Pradera has delicious breakfast included with the room. The hotel has beautiful pools and there are also many fun things to do a short taxi ride from the hotel. We had no problem getting to the attractions in the area. We had a great time! Make sure you climb Cerro Chato and visit Catarata La Fortuna.

We stayed here in our 5 nights trip to Costa Rica. We wanted to do many activities, so this hotel was good because we're most of the time outside. We weren't looking for anything fancy, so this hotel has everything we need. It was clean, comfortable, the food was good (breakfast is included), and the service was good too. Very close to the town, so this is a plus too.
