This hotel has very nice rooms a great pool and very helpful staff! The wifi was very good throughout the entire hotel this hotel is right in the middle of city center where there is a lot of stores and events! The only down part of the hotel is they don't have a restaurant however there are many great places...

Spent 2 nights here and had no problems. Rooms were nice, well accommodated, well kept clean and were up to date. Food was fairly average, a little walk down to the connecting restaurant with the school group. Pool was very nice to relax in and out of. Bugs were no issue, overall a very good hotel.

We spent 5 days here. There were 3 couples. We all stayed 3 days in the standard room and 2 in the premium rooms (one couple in the junior suite). We were happy with the standard rooms, but due to room availability they had to move us. All of our rooms were comfortable and clean. The daily maid service was...

Clean comfy hotel right in town with easy access to all the area has to offer. Free breakfast down the street was great. Very friendly front desk staff who could not have been more pleasant or helpful. We had our own car and there is plenty of parking on site as well.

We stayed at this location for 4 nights in March of 2016. It is not a fancy place, so don't look for a hot spring spa here (though there is a pool). You get a voucher for breakfast at the nearby soda (restaurant) El Rio which is nice. From some of the rooms you can have a view of the...

We arrived at the hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the grounds and the hotel. The front desk was very helpful in setting up activities. The rooms were large and contained everything you might need. It was fun to go out at night and look for frogs on the grounds of the hotel.

We enjoyed our stay at La Fortuna and at hotel Monte Real. It is a small hotel with a little frog garden, consistent air conditioning, mini fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc. They arrange a daily breakfast which is served at Soda El Rio (about a 5 minute walk down the block). The breakfast voucher can be used for lunch...

Greatly enjoyed our stay at this small hotel in La Fortuna, close to town. Walking distance to many restaurants, shops and other amenities. Clean, well maintained, nicely decorated. Air conditioning, small fridge and safe all in good working order. We had a spacious room near the back of the property, which backs on to a river, so very quiet. (Main...

This hotel is in a great location for a visit to Arenal Volcano. It is in a town close to the park entrance and is within walking distance to restaurants and shops, but is far enough out on the edge of town for a quiet rest. Rooms are reasonably priced and spacious. Be sure to request a room at the...

When we began planning our big trip to Costa Rica I purchased the Costa Rica Discount Card and used them as a basis for choosing accommodations and activities. I am so glad I did because otherwise I may not have discovered this wonderful hotel in La Fortuna! Prior to our stay I needed to contact them several times with questions...
