1st off I want to say, I was pleasant surprises by the friendly front desk and their willingness to explain the history this small town. The restaurant next door was just as friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend both places.

This hotel is just a few kilometers north of the centre of La Fortuna. It is on the main road which is at a grade opposite the hotel which causes trucks and motorcycles to make significant noise. We stayed in unit 10 which is furthest from the road on the second level. There is a good grocery store across the...

We stayed here for 3 nights during the second week of February. We had room 10 on the second floor which would have an awesome view of the volcano if the clouds were not present. The girls at the front desk were very friendly and helpful, they notified us when out tour guide was downstairs and brought the phone for...

We stayed at this place for three nights just a few weeks ago, late January. It was clean and spacious rooms, looking out at the volcano. Staff was great and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. I would stay here again for sure. Very affordable, great location. There is a store right across the street, great restaurants all around too.

Would definitely recommend this place. It's slightly out of town, but that's definitely a good thing! There are cafés and restaurants nearby and it's only about a 20 minute walk into town. The rooms are clean and spacious and a great breakfast is included (provided by the cafe next door). Rebeca on reception is really helpful with booking activities.

It's a nice little hotel. The staff is very friendly. The view is very beautiful. There is a great restaurant next door (mi casa) and a supermarket in front. The room is small, the beds are very uncomfortable, no toiletries (paid the same price for a big hotel with everything included) and the wall are very thin. I still can...

Great location off main road. Stayed in room 1 lower level. Ask for more pillows if possible. Huge shower, but then again it was a handicap accessible room. Fast WIFI and free breakfast were a bonus. We stayed one night and left early next morning so never saw pool or hot tub. Overall great value and would stay here again....

We stayed here for two nights. It's a bargain hotel. There are no bells and whistles - that's for sure. The walls were pretty thin as you could hear everything from the room next to you to the people in the building next door. The beds are pretty uncomfortable, but they work. Bring your own toiletries. We were very thankful...

It is a nice little place to stay. They give you a solid breakfast, that's for sure. Air conditioning, TV and a small pool. Parking is not big at all, they can probably fit five or six cars there. Does not have view of the Arenal Volcano.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Vista del Cerro for four nights in December. The rooms were clean and spacious and we had a perfect view of the volcano.

“Probably a bit better to be on the second floor, since the back window will probably have a better view of the volcano.”
