We arrived at the hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the grounds and the hotel. The front desk was very helpful in setting up activities. The rooms were large and contained everything you might need. It was fun to go out at night and look for frogs on the grounds of the hotel.

We enjoyed our stay at La Fortuna and at hotel Monte Real. It is a small hotel with a little frog garden, consistent air conditioning, mini fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc. They arrange a daily breakfast which is served at Soda El Rio (about a 5 minute walk down the block). The breakfast voucher can be used for lunch...

Greatly enjoyed our stay at this small hotel in La Fortuna, close to town. Walking distance to many restaurants, shops and other amenities. Clean, well maintained, nicely decorated. Air conditioning, small fridge and safe all in good working order. We had a spacious room near the back of the property, which backs on to a river, so very quiet. (Main...

This hotel is in a great location for a visit to Arenal Volcano. It is in a town close to the park entrance and is within walking distance to restaurants and shops, but is far enough out on the edge of town for a quiet rest. Rooms are reasonably priced and spacious. Be sure to request a room at the...

When we began planning our big trip to Costa Rica I purchased the Costa Rica Discount Card and used them as a basis for choosing accommodations and activities. I am so glad I did because otherwise I may not have discovered this wonderful hotel in La Fortuna! Prior to our stay I needed to contact them several times with questions...

We had a very enjoyable stay here for 2 nights. The location is good for walking to restaurants. Back at our room, which was quite spacious, we could sit outside on our patio or look for huge iguanas in the trees surrounding the hotel. It backs onto a stream which is very relaxing and pleasant. In addition, the staff were...

We came a day early ( my mistake ). The hotel was full but the front desk put us up in the buss drivers rooms. We where very grateful. the next day they gave us out room that we had booked. They did not have to help us but they did. Older hotel but well taken care of.

Good: Good location (walk to restaurants in town), clean room, in-room wifi, spacious rooms, pool, staff were very friendly and helpful, no issues with hot water for showers, the rooms on the second floor have patios. Need to improve: the beds were hard. Considering the price were paying they should get better mattresses.

I stayed a couple nights here, based on the good Tripadvisor reviews. I asked for a room in the back, near the river, as this is very important, since you don't hear the noise from the main road that runs right in front of the hotel. My room on the bottom floor was very clean, the bed was comfortable and...

We stayed at Monte Real for two nights while staying in La Fortuna as part of a G Adventures tour. Overall, it was a very nice stay. Staff at the front desk were very friendly and the rooms were pretty nice. The queen-sized bed was very comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. The showers were very nice, but they have...
