This motel provided excellent service and excellent value for the $48/night double we paid. The room and balcony outside were so clean you could have eaten off the floor. The bathroom door locks from the outside, offering an extra level of security if you want to put bags in there during the day when you are out. Melania and her...

The hotel is small, clean and very comfortable, with no bells and whistles, which is just what we wanted to fit our budget. We were very pleased with the accommodations, but even more so with the friendly staff and delicious breakfast included. Melania and her family go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and at home....

This hotel is basically a motel set on the main road through La Fortuna. The town is a dusty, touristy place not very charming. The hotel is about 2km away from town and a bit isolated if you don't have your own car. Being right on the main road it is quite noisy and despite being at the back of...

This was a little oasis for us in Costa Rica. The room itself is very secure and clean. The cable TV was nice for those afternoons when it was raining. The hotel also has a nice pool and jacuzzi outside. The location is convenient between Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna, close to the hot springs, waterfall, and right across the...

Sometimes you go on vacation to get away from it all, and end up stepping into a whole new world! We felt as if we got a little taste of typical Costa Rican life, in addition to the usual tourist experiences. As others have noted, the hotel is owned and run by Melania and Gilberto as well as their several...

The Tico family who own the hotel are excellent hosts and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. It is interesting to note that purchasing tours directly from the hotel is cheaper than going directly to the tour company. The hotel owners consistently offered us a better price than was available from other sources. The rooms are...

Melania and her husband made the difference. The service was fantastic, and the whole family was helpful. The rooms were very clean unlike many other hotels, and the internet (which is only found in the "lobby") was relatively fast. This hotel is about 2 kilometers from the main town (La Fortuna) and approximately the same distance from the hot springs...

We had the great fortune to stay at Vista del Cerro in La Fortuna with the Rojas family. Melania runs the hotel along with her family and her daughter Melanie owns the restaurant next door. From the minute we entered the hotel we were treated like one of the family. Melania is one of the sweetest people you will ever...

My two friends and I stayed one night here. The place is clean, new, has hot water, A/C, friendly/family staff, quiet and even has a great little restaurant shack next door (also owned by the family). We had them charge us a couple of dollars more to have breakfast included and it was worth it! We enjoyed the food so...
