We spent the week before in the Caribbean but when my husband and I arrived in La Fortuna we thought we were in paradise!
The place is very well designed with all the details you can imagine (it is insane!)
The view for the lake is to die for. You can only understand when you are there.
We loved the environmental side of the La Fortuna like the coffee plantation, home made food, fresh food, vegetables,..
The service is the BIG PLUS! You will receive 5 stars service: the meals are served in your suite, at the main house or at the docks. You choose! On the first day they give you a local cellphone to use while you are staying there.
All staff is super helpful and always will smile at you. Makes you feel part of the family.
The only thing we would change is the suite floor. At night if someone walks to the bathroom or make a simple move will get a bit noisy because is made of wood. Eventually you will get used to it :)
Don’t skip this place!
We want to come back :)
