We stayed here for a night whilst touring Costa Rica. The hotel itself is small and quaint with beautiful cared for gardens...it has everything you need for a night or two, room and bathroom were clean and the breakfast in the cafe a few doors up was lovely - lovely fresh fruit and fruit juice as well as other options....

Very, very happy we chose this hotel in La Fortuna. Staff was great, especially Daniel, the owner's son. Helpful, attentive, went out of his way to take care of us in whatever we needed and always with a smile. Place was immaculate; the rooms, the pool, the landscape. Rooms were big with a balcony. Bathrooms big and super-clean. And then...

We came here after having stayed at Torteguero. We collected a car at Guapiles and it was a pleasant 3 hour drive from there. It is one block (two minutes) back from the main road which has an abundance of restaurants and sodas. A low-rise, small complex with pleasant gardens and a pool. There was a nice seating area down...

Lovely hotel about 5 mins from La Fortuna centre set in a lovely garden with a pool. Rooms are lovely and clean ( we had 2 queensized beds). Very pleasant! Buffet breakfast - including traditional with the mandatory rice and beans or pancakes :-) Only fault was in our final morning - the restaurant was crowded and there were insufficient...

I wanted to be able to walk around La Fortuna while we were in town, so I chose Monte Real. It's close to all of the restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. to be a nice short walk, but it's still in a relatively quiet area. I knew that a river ran past the property, but hadn't thought about what that meant....

We booked a 2 bed room with our 4 year old. Welcome drink and swimming pool were a nice treat. Very close to town at walking distance. Breakfast at the corner restaurant was great. Only little concern was the slidding glass door that my daughter jammed her finger.

This was a very nice hotel, clean, beautiful gardens. The pool is a little small, but a good place to cool down on sunny days. Rooms were airy, spotless. Fridge was welcome to store cool drinks. Good value for your money.

Great location -- in a quieter part of town but well within walking distance of the restaurants and bars. The room was large; the shower was larger! We stayed 2 nights and my partner and I slept phenomenally well thanks to the comfortable beds and pillows. The breakfast at the soda right down the street was delicious. Daniel was super...

Stayed at this hotel for the second time and wasn't disappointed. The rooms are nice and clean. The grounds are beautiful and the grounds keeper may help you find some frogs in his frog garden. The reception staff offer great tips on local attractions and tours
