Hotel Vagabondo was a great place to stay. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Great restaurant on site which provides a delicious selection of breakfast options. Restaurant is also open at night and the pizza is so good! I would definitely stay here again. It is about a 20 min walk outside of the main town though. Not... More

We stayed here for 5 nights, in a room by the pool. It's a small property, close to the road but very quiet, and about a 15-20 minute walk to downtown. We especially liked the breakfast, and having a communal kitchen with a full-sized fridge to store fruit/drinks, and a coffeemaker. The staff members are very nice, and our room... More

We were really happy with this hotel (stayed Feb. 2016). We thought the breakfast was great and ate a couple of times at the restaurant later in the day, the pizza is delicious. The staff were really helpful and friendly and we thought it was great value for the price. I also liked that it was not right in the... More

Nice staff, clean rooms, good breakfast included. I liked the location, not right in the middle of the busy town but close enough to restaurants and the supermarket. Hot springs are close by (well we had a car so I would say maybe 10 - 15 minutes away). The town maybe a mile away. No need for me to add... More

We liked this place. It's on the way into La Fortuna from Lake Arenal. Cosy, rooms are nice, clean and modest. I travel a lot and have stayed in 5 star right down to the nitty gritty no star so I've experienced the good bad and ugly. This place is just perfect. It's close to the highway and you will... More

It was a standard hotel, nice setting, location and staff. The room was clean but had a very damp smell which was not pleasant. There is a lovely swimming pool but was raining the whole time so didn't use it.

The hotel is very small, however the rooms are well decorated and look nice. The shower is cold, and there is even a sign in the bathroom telling you this. Being on the main road, it's hard to sleep at night, however the beds are comfy and you can sleep well in the early hours when less traffic. Breakfast is... More

The room was very damp; they actually had a humidifier running that they took out of the room when we left for the afternoon. They also took down the hammock outside of our room. The lighting was very poor (even with all the lights on, it was somewhat difficult to see). There was no clock of any sort in the... More
