Awesome family trip

Highly recommend. We took our adult kids and all our grand children. They loved it and wished we could have stayed longer. This was my second time there and can't wait to go back. A real jungle Costarican feel and yet close enough to town to walk to everything. GREAT GREAT GREAT.....

Amazing hotel close to Arena Volcano

Very convenient location - walking distance to Fortuna, short drive to the volcano (10 min). The hotel itself is amazing - very beautiful garden, feel yourself as in the little national park. Good food for breakfast and friendly staff.

First Stop in Costa Rica

After we finished our trip in Costa Rica I have to give 5 star for this hotel. If you dont want to ? - You should see our Jaco Beach hotel. Crew in very professional and friendly.

Great Stay!

This is the best bang for the buck! In a beautiful setting, can walk into town, and yet feel the vibe of the jungle! Grounds are gorgeous and a good view of the volcano. Only two negative things- the walls are super thin so we ended up asking several neighbors to be quiet, and the shower pressure was a joke. We'd stay again!

Great spot!

You can't beat this location for the price. A 5 minute, easy, safe sidewalked walk into Fortuna. Great included breakfast and absolutely beautiful grounds. The room, or small cabin, really, was very clean and just what we needed. If you're looking for a safe, simple, clean place, this is a great one!

Off the Beaten Path! Nice...es pura vida!

I rate this hotel 4 out of 5 stars because though the staff were extraordinarily friendly and kind, this is actually very typical of the Costa Rican people in general. They are very gentle, kind people who take life pretty easy. The vibes were perfect for the kind of vacation we were looking for. The hotel was rustic, removed from the main center of La Fortuna, which was perfect for us. It did have a great breakfast, simple and with delicious coffee, fresh fruits and juices. The towels were clean, the bathroom well kept and beds were fine. Each villa/hut was too close to the neighboring one, so you can hear your neighbors (incl intimate things). Birds are everywhere, so in the night it will be loud but that is natural. No wifi access in the rooms or pool area, had to go to the check-in area at the beginning of the properties to get service. This is a nice family owned property and located on a side road in a very touristy town. The travel from San Jose airport cost $160 USD so be careful, we weren't expecting the distance to be so far and the cost to be so much. Tours and outtings all cost approx $60 USD so budget well. Great times and vibes though...Cost Rica es Pura Vida!!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

when you walk towards the main park in La Fortuna from the Hotel...walk to the road past the main street. Go towards the bus terminal and the Hotel Fortuna to get the best deals in food and liquor. Also walk South towards the Bakery on the main street for some good eats. Most of the packed (tourist) eating places charge tip and taxes while the real local places don't.
