El Sesteo Hotel

Has anyone stayed at El Sesteo Hotel? I booked two nights there because it seemed like a nice place and was reasonably priced. Is it directly in La Fortuna and are there places to walk to from the hotel?

Also, if anyone has some favorite restaurants in the area, I would be interested in giving them a try!

El Sesteo is about 300 meters from the Park at La Fortuna downtown...nice pool...nice garden...the bungalows style rooms are nice and most of the time with cold a/c and cable TV...little fridge at each room...the price is good..

I stayed there many times...

Don Rufinos , Nenes, and for local food and open 24 hours...LA PARADA SODA...AKA as La muerta de Hambre!!

Luis Road Advisors.

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in paradise!!

Haven't stayed at El Sesteo so can't advise. Ate lots in town and probably most often at Soda La Parada -- great, reasonable, down-home food. "BB&B" -- for fancier Tico cooking, we also liked Choza de Laurel. Don Rufino's definitely caters to tourists and the prices reflect it, but the service is excellent and so is the food. We had a HUGE and delicious meal at las Brasitas, and it was also the most expensive of the places we dined (at least, for dinner. For lunch, Don Rufino tops the price list but again, the food was worth the prices). We also liked the SOda (y piscina) Tobogan, as you head out of town toward the volcano. In addition to nice food at reasonable tico prices, it's also got a grrreat water slide!

Have a great trip to La Fortuna! Eat well... pura vida!

This restaurant has a water slide?

Would like to hear more about this and what was the name?
