The Hotel La Fortuna is located in the main part of town and is an easy walk to all amenities including a very fast laundromat across the road. The room was clean and there was a safe, TV and desk. The bathroom was large and the hot water worked well. Breakfast is available although we did not indulge. The staff...

The hotel is in a good location for being in town. It is close to the center of town so you can walk everywhere, for groceries, dinner, tour companies. The rooms are basic, but if you are here you do not expect a 5-star resort. The wifi is best in the lobby. The staff was very helpful with everything. Stay...

Great location and friendly staff!! I absolutely enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I had a spectacular view of Volcano Arenal. Receptionist Josué was very pleasant and a cool guy. Another staffer named Victor Prudente was genuinely friendly and went above and beyond to make my stay the best ever.

Holy Week Weekend: We had spent Saturday at Tabacón Thermal Springs and knew traffic would be very congested returning to San Jose so decided to stay in La Fortuna, a town near Volcan Arenal and Tabacón Thermal Springs. The hotel is not glitzy nor glamorous, not your Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton...It provided the basics:beds, shower, tv, internet and air conditioner. The...

I had a great stay at this hotel with my girlfriend. They have a nice breakfast included in the morning, but it closes at 9am. Beds were comfortable and we slept very well. The staff was very helpful and I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed here two nights as part of a tour. Good location within walking distance of many restaurants, tour agencies etc. Friendly reception staff. Rooms are small and mine was at the back of hotel so no street noise but this also meant no external window. Bathroom was nearly as big as bedroom with plenty of hot water. Good AC ....
