This place is well maintained and in a quiet location. Cabins are in a nice setting. Staff is very friendly and breakfast is good. One thing that can improve is lighting in bathroom. Bathroom light is dim.

We felt close to the nature with coconut and banana trees and flowers all around us and with very basic furnishings at this hotel. The included breakfast appeared to be quite authentic with Pinto Galle, sclambled eggs, papaya, pineapple etc in open covered wooden pavilion. Staff was friendly. This was about 1 mile walk to town center in the country...

Within just a 10 minute walk from the town center you will find these simple, quaint cabins amidst pretty greenery. Birds were flying around and it was a bit noisy at night with the insects, but it did give a very classic Costa Rica touch. It is an affordable, clean, humble option for travelers on a budget. Their breakfast was...

Most travel guides and other people have never heard of this place, but it was amazing! The breakfast every morning is nothing special, but fantastic for what we wanted. The location is excellent! and if you rent a car, you can get pretty much anywhere you want without being WAY overcharged for taxis/travel guides. It is an easy walk into...

LA fortuna was one of my favourite places in Costa Rica anyway and this hotel really made it. The little cabins are quite basic but are in amongst beautiful gardens. The breakfast although again quite basic was probably the best we had with the staple rice and beans and delicious fresh fruit and amazing coffee. The staff also really make...

Stayed here early December, just before the busy Xmas period started. Comfortable rooms, very clean and we'll looked after. Amazing backdrop of Arenal volcano. Staff really friendly and helpful, sorting and booking extra trips for us. Thought I had lost passport and they couldn't do enough to help, including ringing the last hotels I had stayed at - luckily it...

Overall our family (my wife, daughter and me) had good time at that place. What impressed us are: 1) nice hotel personel (reception, maintenance and breakfast buffet) 2) nice location (close to nice restorants, shops and tour tourist businesses) 3) nice hotel territory

The view and the hotel property are what makes this place decent. The rooms are a bit outdated but a good size and a good layout. Noise was my biggest issue as we had a tour group with some young adults that were swapping bed most of the night. The breakfast is decent but presentation could use some attention. This...

What a beautiful hotel! The cabanas were amazing and had a great view of the volcano (when the clouds cleared and fog lifted). The hotel had great amenities and we greatly appreciated the A/C and hot water. The entire staff (cooks, maids, reception) were very friendly and extremely helpful. Whether we booked activities through them, asked for their opinion on...
