What a great find that if not for Trip Adviser would not have found! We stayed 3 nights and the place was perfect for exploring La Fortuna. It is a bit out of town, but if I had to guess maybe only a 20 minute easy walk or so to the main downtown area and maybe 15 minutes to the nearest small grocery store and restaurant. We had a rental car but only used it for going into town for dinner as any tour we did picked us up at the front door. The owner was very helpful in addressing any needs we had and made it so easy to book tours in the area. We did the ATV and whitewater rafting tours recommended and both were wonderful. These are individual cabins that are very clean and comfortable and I would say a great value, I don't believe you will find a better value in Costa Rica. The breakfast as others have said was the best breakfast we had during our 11 day Costa Rica stay. The back porches of the cabins were wonderful to hang out in the chairs and hammock and just read and watch the local wildlife. The cabins were not huge, but had plenty of space for my boyfriend and I and 14 year old son. We also had a fridge in our room which was a luxury we did not have in any of the other more expensive places we stayed in Costa Rica and there was air conditioning. The owners want to make sure you have a great time and take care of their guests. There was not a view of the volcano from the cabin, but you could see it from the hotel grounds which was more than adequate. Would book again in a heatbeat!
