Hotel Monte Real is situated close to the town centre, restaurants and shops but far enough away from the noise. It's clean, comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. There's also a pool area for relaxing, free wifi and a garden area. Our room was spacious, had two large double beds, air conditioning, TV and a good sized balcony... More

This is a very place to stay in. There is a pool on the property and a nice stream nearby. The rooms are clean and very quite. There is air conditioning in the rooms. The breakfast is a great deal. The front desk staff are very responsive and helpful.

Great hotel. Clean and spacious. The pool was a great spot to meet up with others. Rooms were well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The TripAdvisor page says free breakfast but it was not available to us.

After doing lots of research, resorts outside town with or near hot springs vs somewhere in town within close proximity of everything, we chose Monte Real and I'm so glad we did. From the moment we arrived till the time we left, we just loved it. We booked a premium room with views of Mount Arenal. The town itself is... More

Room and bathroom are big and in excellent condition. This hotel seems relatively new or recently remodeled. Beds are comfortable. Hotel is located close to laundry and restaurants. This hotel is a great choice.

Very friendly receptionist (José-Luis) who was thrilled to practice his German with me. This hotel is just down the road from the bus station and we had a room (no. 22) with an excellent view of the volcano, which was nearly completely visible when we were there the second time. The room had a large balcony, which we didn't use... More

We were greeted with delicious juice, quickly oriented to our clean and well-equipped room with Volcano view - we got lucky, the skies cleared and we saw the top of Arenal from our balcony! The hotel is close to everything, near 2 supermarkets and the town center, but set back by a bubbling brook with iguanas and the infamous resident... More

Hotel Monte Real is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the city center of La Fortuna. Everything you need is just around the corner and the super-friendly front desk staff will be glad to give directions and help you arrange trips to the nearby (and not so nearby) attractions. Our room was reasonably spaced and equipped with two... More

First we were greeted with fresh pineapple juice. Everyone was very friendly and were always helpful with our questions. We were shown a big map of the area (including where breakfast is) & suggestions for restaurants. Most rooms had a normal door with a sliding door for a balcony but ours only had a sliding door as the main entrance... More

Small but efficient. Pleasant front desk staff. Clean and spacious rooms. Voucher for a full breakfast right down the block. Beautiful little pool with creative (maybe a little corny) statues. Overall perfect for the 2 days, one night we were there.
