Good location, cheap, clean,, freeparking, and free wifi not luxury at all but cheap and functional had to remind staff to clean room though tours available from reception including cheapest rafting with Arenal Rafting (with danny) if you stay here, there's no breakfast, but go across the street to HORMIGAS - very cheap and tasty

First of all the price is high for all that he did and offered to us. I booked on the website a full room (AC and hot water) for three people, when we arrived he didn't know about our reservation and put us in a very nasty room with holes on the ceiling, no AC instead has a loud fan...

We chose this hotel based on location and price, whilst the volcano can be seen from the car park on a clear day that is the only good things that can be said about the place. We totally agree with previous reviewers that say that the owner is only after your money, not only did he completely rip us off...

La Fortuna is a pretty rustic place mostly and this hostel was no luxurious resort, but it was a very good experience. Everything was clean and the beds were pretty comfortable. Francklin, the owner, helped us book the tours we wanted and all our transportation. When we wanted to go to the waterfall and asked him to call us a...

All the reviews who talk about the owner trying to coerce you into taking him up on one of the tours on his list. Luckily my spouse is Costa Rican and we just said she had a headache and we were going to take it easy and sleep. He was clearly frustrated, but reluctantly did not press further. Our room...

I'm not one to leave a bad review, but I believe it is my duty to do so in this case. The owner/manager was a nightmare. Sure, if you spend hundreds of dollars on his tours, he'll love you. But if you plan on just being a guest at his hotel, prepare for a very unfriendly experience. We cannot recommend...

This is an awesome place to stay if you're just looking for a quite room to sleep in between adventures. The staff is very helpful if you're looking for stuff to do, and the rooms are clean and quiet. The upstairs rooms have an amazing view of the volcano. The rooms have a fan and a tv.

We stayed here 3 nights during our honeymoon. The hotel is clean and well priced but only the upstairs rooms have views of the volcano. The salesman, Tony was friendly but his constant talking got tiresome and he got very pushy over booking tours etc - he would find us around the town and start telling us what to do...

“In April you will definitely need air con as it is very humid. There is a supermarket next door and they sometimes blast music for promotions from 7am - you can hear it loud and clear. Make sure you go to the Baldi hot springs!”
