Stayed at San Bosco for three nights while in La Fortuna. Upon arrival, I was a bit skeptical. This is not a 5 star hotel with the full amenities BUT then again you're not really there to spend your full day at the hotel. I found the accommodations to be very good. I felt safe, bed was comfortable, hot shower,... More

Very nice accommodations. Close to town and lots to walk to . My room was quiet, breakfast was good. Good hot tub. Our room was on the second floor and was quite. Rooms were nice size and clean. Water was hot and had good pressure.

This is a pretty decent motel style place in La Fortuna. The rooms are of a reasonable size and always clean when I visited. There's usually free coffee or tea on hand (As with most hotels in Costa Rica) and staff are always friendly and polite. The hotel comes with a reasonable sized pool area, adjacent the breakfast area. The... More

The hotel feels a lot like a nice American motel. The decor is fresh and modern and everything feels right. Location is fine, although Fortuna is pretty small and everything is walkable. Obviously you'll need transport to get to all the highlights of the area, although the volcano is comfortably visible from the hotel top floor. Pool and semi-warm jacuzzi... More
