The rooms are sparse but clean and you are in a perfect spot to explore the town. We had a volcano view room which was amazing. Manrique always answered any of our questions and was always happy to help. He works very hard at customer service and I think he needs an assistant. Breakfast was included and was the same...

I'm so glad we stayed at Hotel La Fortuna. It's conveniently located in the town, and it was easy to walk to restaurants. It was also easy (and inexpensive) to take a taxi to the local attractions like the hot springs (we did Ecotermales), Zip lining (we did Mundo Aventura), and the cacao plantation tour (Rainforest tour). We could have...

i was very pleasantly surprised by how clean and modern this hotel was. it was the best hotel i stayed in during my entire trip and amazingly the cheapest by far. The only reason i cant give it 5 stars is under no circumstances can you bring a guest to your room.

This was hands down a good hotel. When we arrived, we were tired from a long day of traveling and visiting falls. We were greeted by friendly faces that were thorough and helpful.
