3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were 9 people in 3 bungalows, which had great views. The location of the hotel is bad because of the 45 minutes muddy road.

Helpful staff and great view of the volcano! Good breakfast and pina colodas!

Staff was extremely helpful, breakfast included was tasty, room was clean and basic, scenery is astounding.

A really good econo stay in the heart of La Fortuna. Pros: Location and Volcanic Scenery Good breakfast and Free In Room Wifi Quiet Cons: Do not expect in room TV or night life.
