We spent two nights here and this was a nice place to come back to after a long day hiking. Slightly off the beaten path, but walking distance to a lot of conveniences. Great location. So it was nice and quiet in the evenings. HUGE bathrooms and nice tall ceilings.

After a few nights in a questionable hotel, Hotel Monte Real was a paradise. The room was clean, the a/c actually worked, and there was running hot water! Our room had a lovely balcony with a view of the river. The grounds behind the hotel were absolutely gorgeous and we even saw a sloth! The pool was cool and clean;...

My fiancee and I stayed here for three nights and it was a lovely three nights. The room was huge (bathroom not so huge) and the free breakfast (at an off-site restaurant down the street) was tasty enough. The location of the hotel was perfect for day-trips to Arenal Observatory Lodge and spas around the place.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. two minute walk to downtown La Forturna, with plenty of restaurants, bars, sodas. Staff at the desk and security were helpful and friendly. The hotel itself seemed more like a motel. Our room didn't look anything like the pictures advertised but we did not spend much time there. Wifi was strong....

Overall a nice place. Nice and close to markets and souvenir shops. Rooms were well kept and the showers were good. The air conditioning was a great thing to have and the pool was right in the middle.

This was the first place we stayed in Costa Rica. What a fantastic value! The rooms were great, the beds were comfy. I only wish that there was a ceiling fan and a screen on the balcony instead of having to use the A/C. The kids loved the pool. The grounds were amazing! On our first day there, a friendly...

I stayed at this hotel in a work trip and let me tell you after trying some other options, this would be your best option to be down town, breakfast is not on site, pool is small but rooms are clean and staff is nice. Also the price is ok. But so many restaurant near by with so much options.
