Stayed at this hotel for the second time and wasn't disappointed. The rooms are nice and clean. The grounds are beautiful and the grounds keeper may help you find some frogs in his frog garden. The reception staff offer great tips on local attractions and tours

We stayed here five wonderful nights and can highly recommend it. We had room 15, a junior suite with a king bed. Our room was on the end by the river, which drowned out nearly all the traffic sounds and provided peaceful white noise for sleeping. Rooms 14, 12, and 11 might provide a similar experience with a queen bed....

We stayed at Monte Real for two nights to explore the Arenal volcano area. Hotel Monte Real was perfectly placed, close to the centre of town and within a short drive to the National Park. The room was spacious and clean, with a pleasant balcony facing towards the volcano. Breakfast was served in a small restaurant 1 minute walk away...

The Hotel Monte Real proved to be the ideal spot to start our two week adventure in Costa Rica. Perfect location in La Fortuna with easy walking distance to great restaurants (the best just next door) as well as the beautiful central park. The hotel was immaculately clean with beautiful surrounding grounds and a great view of the Arenal volcano....

The rooms were immaculately clean and the gardens were very well looked after. The hotel is central but the grounds make you feel as if you are in the country. We loved the little river path at the bottom of the garden - we saw huge lizards resting at the top on the trees, as well as a variety of...

My family and I stayed at this hotel for our first trip to La Fortuna. The location was excellent and the nature trails by the creek are an added bonus. I will definitely use this hotel again when I go back to La Fortuna.
