  • 6.0.Good

    It was ok

    It did not live up to the rating that we saw but it certainly had some good things. First we got it for a great price so it was worth the money. Second, it was located in a walkable part of La Fortuna and the property itself was pretty decent. The only thing I didn’t like was the room itself. A little updating would go a long way to make it feel warm and comfortable.

    Bonus Hot Springs!

    While the room was a little tired, the service and included breakfast were excellant. Good location, The hotel has a relationship with the Volcano Resort that allows FREE access to their hot springs which was a fabulous perk. I would stay again.

    We really wanted to be right in the middle of La Fortuna - easy to explore the city. And yet we were given a free pass to the sister hotel Volcano Lodge with restaurant, swimming pool and thermal / jacuzzi pools. We very much enjoyed the massage sessions at the spa. We had it all!

    Really great stay

    We absolutely loved this hotel. It has a really central downtown location so it is easy to walk to bars and restaurants whilst remaining peaceful. The staff were friendly and helpful and the free access to the hot springs in the sister hotel is incredible. Breakfast was good with lots of birds to be seen on the pool terrace. Room was reasonably basic but very comfortable and ac was really effective. Would definitely stay here again.

    San Bosco was perfect for us. Room was a little small but no big deal. Location, excellent, town was quaint. Location of hotel perfect. Clean friendly staff and breakfast was great. Their association with Volcano lodge and hot springs was a pleasant surprise. Free entrance. We went twice. If you want to stay in La Fortuna San Bosco is the best option. Thanks

    Top Notch

    Resort style hotel only 100 yards from city center and restaurants. 300 yards from bus station. Beautiful pool. great buffet style breakfast (coffee, juices, fruits, eggs made to order, sausage). Best feature is the free access granted to guests to the hot springs at the Volcano Lodge Resort only a few minutes drive or Uber away!
