Melania and her husband made the difference. The service was fantastic, and the whole family was helpful. The rooms were very clean unlike many other hotels, and the internet (which is only found in the "lobby") was relatively fast. This hotel is about 2 kilometers from the main town (La Fortuna) and approximately the same distance from the hot springs...

We had the great fortune to stay at Vista del Cerro in La Fortuna with the Rojas family. Melania runs the hotel along with her family and her daughter Melanie owns the restaurant next door. From the minute we entered the hotel we were treated like one of the family. Melania is one of the sweetest people you will ever...

My two friends and I stayed one night here. The place is clean, new, has hot water, A/C, friendly/family staff, quiet and even has a great little restaurant shack next door (also owned by the family). We had them charge us a couple of dollars more to have breakfast included and it was worth it! We enjoyed the food so...

This place was a gem in this town. Just slightly removed from the noise of the city. Clean, neat, and super friendly. They offered FREE internet and FREE calls to the US. It was cool. The pool is really nice and the folks were great. I suggest you take a look at this if you want to see the volcano...

Malania and her family were so kind to us during our first two nights in Costa Rica, and that hospitality followed us around the entire country. The room was perfect, with a great view of the volcano! We did not have a rental car in La Fortuna, but Malania's husband drive us to his favorite restaurant for dinner our first...

From the moment we arrived at Vista Del Cerro, we knew we had made the right choice of accomodations in Fortuna. The owner's son, Jonathan, knew who we were, before we even said anything. He brought us to our room, which is simple in design...but very cozy and IMMACULATELY clean. Instantly our 6 year old son, had made a new...

This is a great place to stay in La Fortuna - it's motel style and on the highway about 1 mile from La Fortuna. The lady who runs it is a sensation. It is very clean, new, good air conditioning and good TV. You won't be troubled by the traffic and at $40 per night the value is exceptional. Great...
