    Nice hotel and beautiful gardens but because it’s on the busy main street it gets quite noisy with ATVs and trucks going up and down the street in the early morning.

    A Good Value Stay

    The hotel was lovely with kind, helpful staff. My room was large with a great view of the Arenal Volcano, but was quite dark. It could definitely use more lighting, as it was too dark to do any reading at night. The area was away from La Fortuna proper, but there were lots of restaurants within walking distance.

    Excellent staff who were always willing to help me find better deals, call a taxi, and set up tours. They were extremely kind including Karen and I forget the other girls names. The shower water was very hot, good WiFi. The room itself wasn’t anything special. Could use a bedside table lamp. The breakfast included was a little restaurant next door. It was a CR breakfast and was delicious, hot, fast, filling. I would stay here again.

    Me gustó que está bien céntrico en el poblado de la Fortuna. No me gustó el área de la piscina, le falta limpieza
