This is a cost effective option in Fortuna, with large bedrooms and clean, functional bathrooms. The bathrooms had a space in the tile with a live plant growing - very unique and interesting. Nice pool and hot tub with swim up bar (try the guaro sour - the alcohol in it is made from sugar cane - delicious), good buffet...

We found the staff attentive to the initial air conditioning issue by Jesus. Thanks for the fruit Natalia. Marcos at the front desk was really nice and fast. Once that resolved the ac issue, pure bliss. Great massage with not a CD, but a REAL mountain stream bubbling past the spa and REAL jungle bird sounds outside. Good food, see...

The grounds of this hotel are so beautiful- green plants and flowers that attract birds - could not ask for more beauty. The only down sides - the road coming from the main road makes you wonder where you are headed as dirt is flying and the bed we had was so hard and uncomfortable. We had two rooms and...

Hotel architecturally integrated in a beautiful landscape with unique landscape as the volcano El Arenal! Hot springs pool at 36 ° C! Bungallow 118. Excellent. The only but was the visit (free) to the 'farm' despite our excellent guide - Senorita ROSA ! 'Farm' is nothing than a bunch of old buildings, with milking systems from "last century" and with...

This property is well maintained, beautifully landscaped, and very helpful to its guests. The spa is delightful and the main restaurant is in a wonderful setting. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly maintained.

This well maintained quiet 81 room resort is set 800 meters off the main Fortuna Road. Each room is thoughtfully sited to have a private garden view including volcano views on a clear day. There are two rooms per building, good sound proofing. Rooms are modernly furnished, very clean. Bathroom has a small garden and generous sized walk in shower....

This hotel is in the heart of the rain forest area of Costa Rica and has a great view of the volcano that erupted in 1968 - well, it did for a couple of hours on one day. The mountain is known to always be obscured by clouds, so if you expect to see the advertised photo, you might be...

This is a beautiful area...it is al little off the beaten path, but the rooms are very spacious, pool, restaurant and springs were very nice. Only drawback is it is very spread out, so you usually have to do a bit of walking to get where you are going! It looks straight on to the arenal volcano and is close...

The Arenal Manoa was our first stop (of two) in Costa Rica. Costa Rica Expeditions picked up our family of eight at the San Jose airport, on time in a new, clean, minibus. They handled our luggage and provided a very knowledable guide,( Eduardo), drinks and snacks for the 3-4 hour trip to La Fortuna. They were even kind enough...

We were very lucky as the weather was brilliant and we saw the volcano without any clouds. Our room was beautiful with a large bathroom. It is a pity that the room had two doubles rather than one large king size bed but we found this all the time in Costa Rica. The restaurant was very nice but it always...
