Stayed two nights while in LA Fortuna. Rooms are very basic but clean and the price is right. Location is good, one block off the main Avenue of town so things are easy to get to. The free breakfast is good as is the jacuzzi after a long day of hiking.

The hotel rooms are small and basic, but clean. The hotel is situated in the center of La Fortuna, which means all traffic (especially trucks) drive very close by. In the rooms you don't hear too much noise, but the pool area is far from quiet. In the morning busses that are leaving the hotel keep their engine running on...

Hello RC583, I hope you're well. Thank you for your review. As you mentioned San Bosco Inn is located in the heart of La Fortuna. It means that cars and other vehicles circulate around the hotel and it is difficult to control the noise. We will consider this and all the comments from our customer to make the changes we...

We would go back in a second. The best thing about this hotel was the staff. Joshua and Marlon were terrific. They went above and beyond, whether it was making reservations for us around town or recommending activities and restaurants, they were outstanding. Best staff we encountered during our nine days in country. Other pros about the place were the...

After traveling around C.R. for several weeks and staying in some other budget hotels, I was cautiously optimistic that this would be a good spot to stay for a couple days. Luckily, we were not disappointed! We booked one night to see if we liked it. We did, so we booked 2 more nights! The location is awesome. Very walkable...

Pros - Free breakfast, Nice pool, Helpful staff, Good location, Decent rooms, good value for money Cons - Rooms were loud/not very sound proof, lots of bugs in the rooms (but this is kind of par for the course...

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,...
