This is a lovely place to stay in La Fortuna. It consists of wooden huts with a little terrace just at the feet of Arenal volcano. Each hut has air conditioner, a small fridge, private bathroom with hot water and if you are lucky enough to be close to reception (the only place where there is wifi) you can access...

This was a great place to stay! Las cabanitas were so cute, clean, and comfortable. The bathrooms were also clean. The fact that they had a pool came in handy on hot days. It's a 15 minute walk or so out of town. But nice none the less. Give this place a shot, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

We stayed here last month (Jan '17) as part of an Intrepid Travel tour of Costa Rica. Staff were friendly and helpful, and our cabin was spacious enough for two nights, clean, well equipped and had a functioning hot shower - not always a given in Costa Rica! Given the location being a handy twenty minute stroll into town, I've...

Our original hotel in the middle of town was overbooked, so we stayed here instead, so much nicer! The hotel is away from the centre of town and all the noisy traffic and is well worth the easy, safe 20 minute walk into town. It is only a five minute walk to a supermarket. It is a large property with...

I stayed with my husband a few days ago. The rooms are rustic but with a cozy atmosphere. The breakfast is delicious and with excellent service. Recommended for one or two nights. Additional, they offer the hot spring in a nearby hotel and is incredible.

I booked a superior room here and was given one of the worse quality standard rooms. Others in our group who had booked standard rooms were given larger rooms. When I queried the fact that we had been given a room which did not meet with our booking, the staff laughed and asked whether we needed two double beds (which...

Wooden cabin rooms were very spacious and comfortable, although noise travelled easily through them. Staff seemed friendly and helpful. Air conditioning unit was very slow and rooms were very warm. Pool area was nice (however yellow paint around the pool transferred on to skin so be aware).

The resort offers separate wooden cabins with en suite bathrooms which are very nice, the decor is outdated however and after some rainfall we discovered we had a hole in our roof. The breakfast is very over priced for what it is, 6USD for scrambled egg which was extremely salty. It is also situated about a 20 min walk from...

We stayed here last week as part of the G Adventures Basic Costa Rica tour. This was one of the nicest hotels on the tour. The hotel consists of separate cabins with ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning. There is a small clean swimming pool with sun loungers, perfect for relaxing after a morning of adventure such as canyoning or kayaking/stand...

I liked seeing the volcano looming over the fence. Pretty landscaping attracted birds, including parrots. The rooms were rustic but cute and comfortable. There were some old concrete units that were in ruins in the middle of the property. One was right next to a room and the plants were grown up and created a scary place at night. Sidewalks...
