You have a perfect view of Arenal, AC, spacious rooms, great staff, nice pool, parking, and last but not least....the amazing and free breakfast at Mi Casa next door! You are away from the busy and crowded downtown of La Fortuna but everything you need is a stone's throw away; restaurants, bars, souvenirs, and grocery store. I would highly recommend...

As the name of the hotel translates, Hotel Vista Del Cerro provides a beautiful view of the Arenal Volcano and was exactly what we were looking for during our 3 night stay. The hotel is right next to a wonderful restaurant, Mi Casa where we ate our breakfast every morning, which was included in our price. The hotel is definitely...

the folks there were very nice, rooms were clean, hot water in shower. I loved the solid wood doors and old world feel of the construction. Great location, close to town but not too close. Grocery store across the street.

When the air conditioning emits dank cold and damp air that smells of old unwashed dirty towels you start to pay a lot more attention. So with a collection of cockroaches, spiders and centipedes, corners of each room dirty ( including the shower), traffic noise nearly all night and the clashing of dishes and chat from the restaurant next door...

The hotel is located at the west-side of La Fortuna and close to the waterfall. The staff in this family-owned hotel is very helpful. They booked tours and transport for us and also gave us a lift to the village center. We liked our stay in the hotel and also enjoyed the swimming pool after hiking to the waterfall. Also...

Basically a typical motel style accomodation. Very clean, decent mattresses and safe. Our first night was second floor closest to the highway, the noise was a bit too much to handle, staff happily relocated us to a unit furtherest from the road and that did help to reduce to noise to a large but not full extent. Breakfast was included...

We were greeted by the hotel staff who immediately started giving us information about the area and went well out of his way to arrange some tours for us. The room was a decent size and was very clean. Unfortunately the beds were not very comfortable and the street noise from traffic made for several sleepiness nights. We took advantage...

I stayed in 3 places in La Fortuna, all were pretty good the staff here was great. Unfortunately, I don't remember the young man's named that helped me but he was so great in helping me out with my immediate future plans.

one of the hottest showers in costa rica (you will love it after having an exhausting hike on the cerro chato!!), very friendly and helpful staff! We recommend to stay here, it`s a family business, the rooms are big and very clean, there is enough space to leave your car savely and the restaurant round the corner is also recommandable!...
