We stayed here for a week while traveling around the Arenal area, the staff is helpful, friendly, and the hotel was very clean. We stayed in the volcano view room and it was perfect. The front desk is staffed 24 hours. Breakfast was included.

Vary Clean! The staff was friendly and knowledgable, the rooms were well maintained, and the shower was huge! Convenient location, great views, and a satisfying breakfast. Well worth the price of admission. Would definitely stay there again.

The staff were very friendly and helpful at check-in. Our room was basic, but we had a great little balcony with a view of the volcano, which is fantastic. The restaurant is within walking distance of many small "sodas" to eat at and near fruit stands and gift shops. The provided breakfast, of fruit, eggs, and toast was good, although...

Decent enough... but would stay elsewhere next time simply because of the noise and hard...

The owners and staff of this property in La Fortuna were so thoughtful and attentive. We had not Pre-booked any excursions, but the hotel helped us with this. While it rained (actually, it poured) every day, we did not let that stop us. We had a great time and would recommend this site.

Staff at reception is extremely helpful with everything such as booking of excursions and shuttles. The location is perfect with all resraurants, shops, taxis and travel-agencies around. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with everything you need. The perfect hotel for some days in La Fortuna!
