We had a nice stay at the Monte Real. We arrived on a rainy, cloudy day, so we didn't know until the next day that our room had a beautiful view of the volcano. The hotel is right in town and easily within walking distance of everything in the nice little town of La Fortuna.
The hotel appears to be family run and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds were very well-kept and the pool area was a nice addition. There was a small river running right by the hotel, which provided a nice, constant, relaxing sound.
We opted for an upgrade on the room to get A/C and we were glad we did. The room was simple, but clean and functional. It even had a small refrigerator, which we found a nice thing to have. We had a small deck with a direct view of the volcano. We did have a small problem with teeny-tiny ants, which we later found was very common in Costa Rica and not unique to this hotel.
Breakfast is included in the rate, but you have to walk about a block to the restaurant. There is a choice of 3 breakfasts - various combinations of rice & beans, eggs, toast, and fruit with coffee and juice. All were quite tasty.
This hotel is a great find for a good price and I would definitely suggest it for others wanting to stay in La Fortuna.
