Ian was the perfect host- extremely helpful in planning outings and offering suggestions for places to eat. The smoothie he brought me upon checking in was just what I needed. I loved my suite: very cool decor, roomy, wifi and netflicks too, plus it was the most comfortable bed I slept on during my trip! The breakfast was delicious and...

Thanks Mkataw for such a detailed review. I try and contribute what I can to make your Costa Rican adventure as memorable as possible. I knew you would like the smoothies. I serve only the freshest of fruits, Everyday. Should you be back in the area, make sure to stop by. Cheers!

Highly recommended. Ian went out of his way to help with arranging tours, giving advice, and even gave us a short drive to find a special craft store. The room was quite large, bigger than I expected. I also liked that the location is in the middle of down town and close to everything, but being two blocks off the...

La Fortuna Suites is a wonderful place to stay, made even better by a caretaker who goes above and beyond. Ian is a Californian, born in Costa Rica, who came back to help his dad run some of the best lodging options in Costa Rica. FORTUNA-ly (corny pun intended) we had the chance to stay with him at La Fortuna...

My friend and I stayed at La Fortuna Suites for a few nights in December, and everything about our stay was excellent. The suite is spacious, clean, and comfortable, with a huge TV equipped with Apple TV (including Netflix!) and a great kitchen filled with all the supplies we needed. Ian, the guy in charge, is incredibly kind and helpful...

The room was clean and ample with everything I needed. A home cooked breakfast is provided with attention and care.

Good location in la fortuna, close to the center but in a calm street. The host was very friendly and helped us with planning our stay. The beds were awesome, the best we had during our trip! The suites downstairs don't have any windows so we did miss a little bit of daylight sometimes. The breakfast was good. Thanks Ian...

Thank you for sharing your experience of La Fortuna Suites. I agree that the beds are comfortable, people always claim to have had the best sleep here. Suite 3 does lack a bit of natural light. We painted the walls white, added brighter bulbs and additional lamps in hopes of brightening the room. We also placed rocky tile on the...
