We came a day early ( my mistake ). The hotel was full but the front desk put us up in the buss drivers rooms. We where very grateful. the next day they gave us out room that we had booked. They did not have to help us but they did. Older hotel but well taken care of.

Good: Good location (walk to restaurants in town), clean room, in-room wifi, spacious rooms, pool, staff were very friendly and helpful, no issues with hot water for showers, the rooms on the second floor have patios. Need to improve: the beds were hard. Considering the price were paying they should get better mattresses.

I stayed a couple nights here, based on the good Tripadvisor reviews. I asked for a room in the back, near the river, as this is very important, since you don't hear the noise from the main road that runs right in front of the hotel. My room on the bottom floor was very clean, the bed was comfortable and...

We stayed at Monte Real for two nights while staying in La Fortuna as part of a G Adventures tour. Overall, it was a very nice stay. Staff at the front desk were very friendly and the rooms were pretty nice. The queen-sized bed was very comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. The showers were very nice, but they have...

The staff was very friendly, so we felt comfortable and enjoyed our stay. Big rooms with fridge and a nice terrace in front. And on top of all a lovely botanic garden with a frog garden. The friendly gardener showed me strawberry frogs, red eyed frogs as well as a big Iguana in the treetops.

This was the second hotel on a group tour around Costa Rica. It was way beyond my expectations! The room and bathroom were spacious. It was in the perfect location, backing onto a small stream and in a great area for restaurants/shopping/grocery stores. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant but you are only a few feet away from many local...

We really enjoyed our stay here, the rooms were all very nice. It's in a good location near everything you'll need in la fortuna and a short walk to the centre to get a view of Arenal volcano. We found it very friendly here and a supermarket near by. There is a nice pool at the hotel and a nice...

This was our first hotel stop once we got to Costa Rica and drove in from Saqn Jose. We wanted to be close to the volcano but also within walking distance of the local shops and restaurants. This was a great choice. The staff was helpful and friendly as well. There was a tour group (teenagers) at the hotel at...

Nice size, nice rooms, nice pool, good location. We saw nothing better for us in La Fortuna. Rooms were clean and spacious, nice people both working and staying there. Very happy with our choice and would recommend Monte Real to friends. Ask for room 15.

Quaint view, spacious rooms, but minimal surfaces to place your stuff during your stay. Beds were truly horrible! All I felt were springs with absolutely no give or cushion. Air conditioner didn't work when we arrived. At least guest services is friendly and polite.
