Ian the owner was a great host! Breakfast each morning was lovely as well. Highly recommend staying here. Also highly suggest the hiking trail tours that Ian recommended with Giovanni. Five minutes away and you will see more animals than any other tour.

Thanks for taking the time to leave me and Giovanni a Review. Giovanni's trail offers a lot of wildlife to see. Poison dart frogs, red-eyed tree frogs, sloths, Toucans of several types, and up to 11 or more of tropical bird species. Best bet to see wildlife is at Giovanni's trail!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Ian's place. The view was incredible. The breakfast outstanding and Ian went out of his way to help. I had fallen in Tamarindo before coming to La Fortuna and ended up at a clinic to find out that I had broken a bone in my foot. Ian was a saint as he...

La Fortuna Suites was exactly what we were looking for for our two nights in town. My husband and I are in the hospitality business ourselves and love to stay in other B & B's and always come home with ideas that we would like to offer here at our guesthouse.

The La Fortuna Suites is in a great location in La Fortuna. So many of the hotels are on the road out of town, where you would be relying on cars/taxis to come into town at night. We were glad we chose to stay here which is a very short walk to the restaurants and bars but on a quiet...

Thanks for leaving such a thoughtful review! Glad you had a great time. I often try to "step up my game" at breakfast, serving only the freshest of fruits. Today we had pancakes with strawberries on top!

This is the best place to stay in La Fortuna. Ian was more than a host. He was a travel guide, tour booking operator, concierge, chef (amazing natural breakfast), and friend in another country. Though you can book this in several websites, I recommend you just call the place directly and speak to Ian. He and his family have true...

My room was very nice looking and with bed was very comfortable. Ian the host was very accommodating. He was there to assist me with any travel plans or give ideas about potential fun outings. The whole facility was very pretty with tropical friendship plants making the ambiance comfortable and suited to the surroundings. The breakfast was excellent with fresh...

I'm glad you had a great time during your stay. I enjoyed the company, thanks for joining me on a couple outings. Giovanni Bogadin's trial is an awesome trail.

We stayed one night here - arrived directly from the airport on our first night, with a private transfer arranged by Ian. Very convenient if you want to be able to walk into La Fortuna - on a quiet street but very close to the main strip. Clean, well maintained suite with a small living room/kitchen separate from the bath/bedroom...

The hotel itself is wonderful - great location, view of the volcano and a lovely terrace for breakfast. The room we stayed in was large, clean and very comfortable. Ian was amazing.

Thanks so much for staying with me. I remember our chat by the park! LFS is convenient because it's so close to everything; but 2 streets out central town so it's quiet. I appreciate your thoughtful response. Hope to have you here again.
