We stayed here somewhat by accident, the price was dirt cheap for the room, which was one of the best we actually stayed in. Comfortable beds, working AC. Nice views of the volcano, nice pool and walking trails around the grounds. Gigantic bathrooms and shower, seriously the shower alone was the size of my entire bathroom. Nice staff, nice food...

We stayed at this hotel on Jan. 31. We booked this hotel thru their website for $75. While we were in La Fortuna they had an advertisement on the street listing the rooms for $50. It was a great hotel just outside of La Fortuna. We stayed in a room facing the pool. The room was very clean, had A/C,...

My family of five with three kids (14,12,9) really enjoyed this hotel. It was away from the heart of town just maybe a mile or so up the road and away from the city feel. It felt very luxious and our room was facing the pool. Since it was so affordable we decided to get two rooms side-by-side. This way...

We stayed at La Pradera on January 27th and 28th as we toured the area. The hotel was about a 20 minute walk out of La Fortuna. The rooms are average, for the price and clean. The bathroom was great, all tiled and walkin shower. We had room #35, open the door to a beautiful view of the volcano. The...

We decided to stay in a cabin for our honey moon. It was very cute and spacious, but the walls are literally just wood. It's Soooo loud at night with the bugs making noise, so bring earplugs. We had to wait over an hour for our rooms when we arrived even after check in time. They eventually gave us a...

I stayed here on a tour arranged by Desafio Adventure Company and chose to upgrade to a hotel with a view of Arenal volcano. Having booked the tour spur-of-the-moment and not knowing what I was getting myself into, I am happy to say I was very impressed with La Pradera! The hotel is smaller to medium in size and the...

The location is perfect, not in the heart of downtown La Fortuna, but walking distance for shopping and meals. Not too secluded, easy access to everything The food at La Pradera is excelent. The staff is knowledgable and helpful. They can schedule...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in December and loved it. The grounds were very nice, clean, and well maintained. There was a pool, hot tub and a restaurant that served breakfast, which was included in our rate. The location was close to the town of La Fortuna - about a 25 minute walk or...

Cute bungalow room close to the pool with perfect view of volcano. Rooms are simple and clean with large bathroom and small refrigerator. Breakfast was excellent and cooked to order. $3 cab ride to town. Hotel is on the main road, but the room was quiet. Right next to an open field with a few cows running around. Lots of...

This hotel is located by Arenal volcano and on sunny days has a great view of the volcano. The people working the front desk were helpful and outgoing. Our transfer got us there prior to check-in and there were no rooms available, so they let us keep our things behind the desk while we went out and about. They helped...
