Very nice accommodations. Close to town and lots to walk to . My room was quiet, breakfast was good. Good hot tub. Our room was on the second floor and was quite. Rooms were nice size and clean. Water was hot and had good pressure.

Stayed in Room #6 for one night after arriving in La Fortuna. The staff was very hospitable and friendly. The hotel was in the main section of town and you could easily walk to nearby shops and restaurants.

This is a pretty decent motel style place in La Fortuna. The rooms are of a reasonable size and always clean when I visited. There's usually free coffee or tea on hand (As with most hotels in Costa Rica) and staff are always friendly and polite. The hotel comes with a reasonable sized pool area, adjacent the breakfast area. The...

Great place to stay to visit Arenal volcano and the surrounding area. Nothing fancy but all the staff are friendly and welcoming, the bedroom was fine, free wifi, great breakfasts - with good coffee - and a swimming pool that has an amazing view of the volcano. And the charming town of La Fortuna is just a few minutes walk...

The hotel feels a lot like a nice American motel. The decor is fresh and modern and everything feels right. Location is fine, although Fortuna is pretty small and everything is walkable. Obviously you'll need transport to get to all the highlights of the area, although the volcano is comfortably visible from the hotel top floor. Pool and semi-warm jacuzzi...
