Nice little hotel in the middle of town. The front desk helped me book a last minute tour to Mistico and they picked up at the hotel. The room was clean and neat. Each room had a patio and a great view of the Volcano. The outdoor areas were nicely kept. They had a stairway going to the river alongside...

Looks like American style motel, huge room, nice and clean, we'd come from a lodge in Tortugero which had loads of character but not much light and sporadic hot water, so we we're quite happy with this modern, bright room, with a balcony view of the arenal volcano. It's slightly away from the main streets of town, which made it...

Well situated from town, bit like a motel, no where to eat or bar but so close to shops and numerous cafes not an issue. Rooms very big, I had ground floor, looks onto gardens. They have a frog garden at the back. Hotel not much character but very clean.

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...

Although, the content of your opinion does not match the title nor the calification given. Some of the things described as cons are not accurate. We have high prestige guests and agencies staying...

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...
