This place was exactly what we needed. It's a very short walk to the shops and restaurants and has a nice pool and relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly and would return! The breakfast was tasty, too!

For 4 people spending three nights in one of the most touristy places in Costa Rica, this hotel has an unbeatable price. Picking lodging here in La Fortuna just depends on what your looking for: if you want luxurious lodge replete with thermal baths and room service, San Bosco is not the place for you. However, if you want simple...

Close to Arenal, the waterfall, and other attractions. It is a comfortable place to stay if you plan on doing any nearby adventure tours. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is good, nice local restaurants are within walking distance.

The hotel is a good location if you don't have a car. Close to restaurant, shops etc. It's clean, safe and comfortable. Breakfast was usual for this type of hotel. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We had a room upstairs, not as noisy as main floor. Some people are up early for their tours.
