We stayed here with our two kids - 10 and 13 - for three nights. Let me say, it was a real surprise since we booked it a little last minute and little else was available...you know how those things usually work out??!? Anyway, we arrived after a LOOOONG drive from San Jose - I recommend only doing that in the daylight - and were given room 405. It's at the top of the hill with it's own, wait for it, plunge pool!! Better than that, assuming the clouds are cooperating, the view of the volcano is spectacular. There was a bedroom with two double beds so our kids didn't have to sleep together plus their bath - shower had wall of jets. The kitchenette was struggling to be a kitchenette - refridge was helpful but teeny coffee maker, no sink, no microwave. King bed was very comfortable, nice sheets, and the master bath offered a "waterfall" shower which was very cool. Every day, they left an interesting towel sculpture on the bed for our entertainment. You should know that the pool is not big and was a little crowded while we were there - but they offer a swim up bar which looked like a lot of fun! Breakfast was included adding to the value - and was really quite good. We ate on site two night because we were wiped from our day. You should know that it is not centrally located - but nothing in Fortuna is really centrally located. The attractions (zip lining, etc) will come and pick you up but expect to pay for that. Each room is a villa - this wasn't fully explained on their website but should be because they are private and surrounded by lush gardens and feel like your own little house on a hill in a green, vibrant rainforest. We would absolutely go back.
