Located just west of the main town of La Fortuna, this hotel is a small family run place with comfortable accomodation. I stayed in a suite with a small kitchenette which allowed me to prepare some of my own food when I felt like it. The beds were fine, the shower lovely and the staff/owners very friendly and accommodating. Good... More

Looking at the Trip Advisor ratings we really expected something awesome. So I was a bit dissapointed on arrival. It offers good value for money, thats for sure, but it's not a special hotel or B&B. Positive: clean, decent bed and a good view of the volcano. Could be better: sounds from the main road nearby, old-ish furniture, and the... More

Nice cozy family-owned place. It's obvious that the owners take a lot of pride in this hotel. During our stay we saw several projects going on, just continuously making little improvements here and there. The staff was friendly and helpful. David was a pleasure to talk to and he was so extremely generous with his help. Bijagua was in a... More

Loved the place. Inexpensive, small, but tucked away in a great spot, with great people/management. Big gate, protecting the property at night. Great pool, rooms were just fine. (Would have liked a King bed). Try this though...walk out of your room, and WOW! Arenal volcano was smoking RIGHT THERE. A beautiful view! If you are ok with a small B&B-type... More

Close to Tabacon, La Fortuna Waterfall, Arenal Mundo Aventura, great restaurants and next door to a convenience store. Room had a fantastic view of the Arenal Volcano. Service was fantastic and the facilities were just ok. Little pool, tight parking and kinda lonely at night. Liked the hotel, but might try something different next time around.
