“Excellent location and price.”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

The Hotel San Bosco is located in the center of La Fortuna within walkin distance of the majority of the bars and restaurants in the area. The hotel is about a 20min drive to the Arenal attractions which is very convenient. The hotel itself has somewhat dated rooms, but they are very clean and well maintained. Each morning an expansive complimentary breakfast is served, which was delicious. The price, location, and friendliness of the staff make this hotel a great option for those who want to stay in the Arenal area.

Great rooms, luxury is not part of their priorities, however the price does not compare to the great attention and charisma of their staff, breakfast is included which (by the way) was very good! Totally recommended.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in La Fortuna. We had no problem checking in at 6PM, our room was available and ready. The receptionists are very friendly and spoke English very well. Our room was a bit small, one double and twin bed and a bathroom, but it was expected - anyway we did not spend a lot of time in the room except to sleep. Room was very clean though and bed was comfortable, the AC was strong, and there was hot water in the showers at any time of the day.
The location is about a block and a half away from the center of the center of the town - just far enough to avoid most of the noise but close enough to be able to walk there and enjoy what the town has to offer.
The scenery was very nice and maintained daily. The pool and jacuzzi was clean. Breakfast was really good, nothing special though.
The staff was great, very helpful in showing us what is available in town and the tours that were being offered.
Overall, I had a great experience in this hotel, great value and would recommend it to anyone that plans to stay in La Fortuna.

despite a great location and lovely gardens the cabin we had was not clean the sheets were dirty with no undersheets on the mattress, hard lumpy pillows, which smelt, again with no under pillow cases. A friend in a nearby cabin had a scorpion in his room, which he killed but was not removed. Food in evenings diappointing. Opportunities for rafting, walking and birdwatching on site. Large pool

Room Tip: make sure room is cleaned on arrival
