We really liked this small hotel. It was clean but functional just on the edge of downtown La Fortuna. The garden attached to the hotel is beautiful and the gardener showed us a red eye tree frog, a red poison dart frog and a tiger heron all which. We probably wouldn't have noticed without his help. The staff at the...

The hotel was on the edge of La Fortuna, easy to walk to everything. The grounds are nice, the pool looked inviting but we didn't use it. Staff helpful with booking trips and onwards transfer. Rooms were good - beds comfy, room clean, actual hot water from the shower. Probably wouldn't have thought any of these things of note if...

The planned trip to the volcano rained away so we spent more time at the hotel than planned. The receptionist was very helpful with tour tips and getting a taxi for us. We ended up ın Baldi Spa which was a Wow. Thank you.

Our stay here was short and sweet, only one night but the room was clean and a nice size. The breakfast offered was ok. The front desk girl was very sweet and helpful. She was informative and helped us with directions. I enjoyed my time here and it was very well priced.

Unless you are looking for a cheap and nasty stay, the only appealing thing about this hotel is leaving. Positives: The hotel is located in the centre of Fortuna for those that need a town location and it is clean, (somewhat). Staff were cordial and polite. Cons: the hotel is actually a motel. Volcano views are actually of a car...

We were considering one of the resorts but I read the reviews for this hotel and we decided to save some money and try it out. Not disappointed at all. Simple but very clean and modern. High points; decent rooms with good beds and linens. Even the towels were usable and they had hand and wash cloths! Modern bathrooms with...

Cheap as chips hotel. In fact the cheapest on our trip to Costa Rica. So we were very pleasantly surprised. Good size room with fridge - just like the one on the tin! Enormous comfortable bed. We had the room at the very back so well insulated from road noise. Breakfast included from the little café down the road where...

Excellent location for travelers with large and very comfortable rooms including fridge & coffee machine in the room. Staff is very nice and helpful at all time. Nice garden with a small pool. Some rooms have a view on the volcano.

We were not sure what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised! The Hotel Room itself was very nice. Checking in was extremely easy and fast. A couple things to mention about the room. You'll need to plug in the refrigerator when you get there, but it was easily noticeable. The television was sufficient, but we weren't really in our...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Monte Real and we absolutely loved it! Our room was clean with lots of space, and we had a spectacular view if Arenal Volcano! The location was perfect, as well. There was a creek/"frog pond" behind the property, and the hotel was within walking distance to many of La Fortuna's bars and restaurants....
