We had a great time here. The hotel is lovely and the staff is very hospitable. It was clean and comfortable. They helped us plan our outing to the hot springs, and made everything easy and hassle free.

I lived there for one night in July, 2015 and the hotel staff were very nice and help me a lot of requests. The breakfast was really good and actually you can ask them to make the breakfast you want. I had the Costa Rica local breakfast: gallo pinto.

This is a great place to stay! The location is just a few miles outside of La Fortuna. It's very easy to get around if you have a car. If not, it's still possible to access tours, but it would be a little more challenging. We enjoyed being a little outside of town as it was a quiet and calm...

Run by the nicest people with a very sweet little dog. The free breakfast ("typicál") is absolutely delicious. It rained every night and you can hear wildlife (didn't see any but did hear birds and maybe monkeys but it's hard to say) We stayed in room 9 which is quite large and had AC. It was a little loud in...

The people who run this hotel are very nice and their dogs are sweet. The free breakfast is delicious, the rooms are nice and clean. I had hot water in my room and a working air conditioner. However, the only flaw is if you do not have a car I do not recommend staying here. It is too far from...

A good location for the volcanic national parks. Quite easy to find just outside La Fortuna. Apparently a great view of the volcano but we couldn't see it due to the low cloud. Owner helpful and very friendly. Road a bit noisy but bearable. Certainly a great budget find.
