My girlfriend and I stayed in Fonda Vela for one night during Oct 2008. It was the only hotel during our 2 weeks stay in Costa Rica which we didn’t reserved upfront.
Since it was only for one night we decided to take the standard room and were surprised when the guy at the front desk offered us the junior suite for the same rate.
There are two kind of junior suites in the hotel and after seeing them both we decided to take the new one (the other suite was built entirely of wood). The room was huge and amazing! There was also a sitting area near a huge window which overlooks a beautiful garden. We reserved our Canopy and hanging bridges tours from the hotel front desk which were very kind and helpful. We took the Canopy tour of Aventura which was great and the hanging bridges tour of Salvatura which we enjoyed less. We heard from other travelers that they enjoyed the hanging bridges of Aventura. We ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Dinner was served in a smaller room with a fireplace and was superb.
