Friendly staff...nice pool...pretty gardens...yummy gallo pinto for breakfast! San Bosco might not be the closest to the volcano and not every room has a direct view, but this was a very pleasant stay. Just a block from the park, it was an easy walk to sightsee before my hiking trip. While I did not use the hotel to book tours,...

This hotel is located in a nice area, close to "downtown". The staff is very friendly and very helpful in locating sight seeing places, restaurant, etc. The facility is little old but clean. The pool is very nice along with the hot tub. The hotel is not as good as a 4-star resort but I recommend to anyone looking for...

Breakfast was great every morning. Freshest cooked to order eggs I have ever enjoyed. Rooms were clean--very clean. Views of the volcano were spectacular from the balconies. The pool area was awesome for the kids 10 and 12. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was 1 block away from town square and two blocks from main street and grocery store....

This is a wonderful little hotel that is 1 block off the main busy little square of "downtown" la Fortuna but it is a little slice of paradise. It has excellent security, nice grounds, and a really tasty buffet breakfast which is the ubiquitous gallo pinto, eggs, toast, fresh fruit, etc... The pool is always well maintained and clean. I...

I stay at the San Bosco every time I go to La Fortuna. It is a fantastic value with a perfect view of the town and the volcano. The pool is nice, as is the continental breakfast and the location is perfect for walking around the town of La Fortuna.

The hotel is clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. It is only a block from the central square in La Fortuna so it is very convenient for restaurants and other commercial services. On a clear day you can see Arenal Volcano from the front of the hotel. The hotel is very good value for the price...

This was my second stay here in six months. I love being able to wander around the town without hopping in the car. The rooms are comfortable (but not luxurious), with good air conditioning and television. The pool and hot tub are nice and the pass-through from the neighboring smoothie place is really convenient. Breakfast is standard Tico fair with...

We travel extensively in Costa Rica and were looking for a hotel in the center of La Fortuna so we wouldn't need to drive, but a little quiet, because the main street is very busy. This place was perfect for us. We were able to negotiate a very fair low season rate and the place was well manged. The rooms...

This is my favorite place to stay in La Fortuna. You can see the Arenal Volcano and the cute little town is just steps away with out having to get in your car and drive.

We stayed here the second day of our trip to save a little more money on hotels. The staff was lukewarm or not seen. If you want to be totally left alone, its a good place to stay. The breakfast was decent, but there was no one around to ask for anything. The location is as they say, close to...

Thank you very much for your comments! We regret that you have had an unfavorable experience with us. We try to provide the customer, quality service for an adequate budget. It is not our intention that people feel alone in their stay, but the amount of staff we employ is relatively smaller than that used in other more budget hotels....
