“La Pradera was a nice hotel with a good view of the volcano”
Reviewed 29 August 2010

I recently stayed at La Pradera in La Fortuna. The hotel was recommended by my travel agent and I was not sure what to expect. La Pradera was a clean hotel with a good view of the volcano. It was a short walk to a few stores and restaurants. If you want to do some serious souvenir shopping or want more restaurant choices, you would have to take a taxi to town which was about $3 each way. The hotel had a nice pool with pretty landscaping. There was also computer access for free in the loby for those not traveling with a laptop. I felt very safe in the hotel and in walking to the shops and restaurants during the day. The pizza at nearby Vagabondo restaurant and hotel was excellent.

Our family of five stayed here for two nights. We were very comfortable with two double beds and one single in the same bungalo. The room was clean. Our pillows were a little lumpy but didn't seem to cause any lost sleep. The view of the volcano was great! Delicious breakfast and helpful staff.

We loved this place! Stayed in Cabin facing volcano with comfy front porch to watch the volcano and birds and flowers in the a.m. . Had a perfect view, AMAZING photo ops, and gorgeous grounds! We had 5 people in cabin & we were more than comfortable with surprisingly plenty of room! Bathrooms were very large, a/c worked fine, Rooms were spotlessly clean!

Had a great FULL breakfast which was included in the very reasonable rates each morning.
You could watch the volcano from the pool area.

Favorite place in Costa Rica and service was top notch and very friendly! I really don't have a bad thing to say about this place at all!! Thanks for a memorable and wonderful time!!

We enjoyed our stay here and did a neat nighttime walking tour which was run at the hotel. Easy walk to town for food or other needs.

We spent two nights here with 4 adults in a nice cabin, with a terrific front porch. Everything was clean and very nice. We particularly enjoyed the landscaping, and the early AM birding with coffee from our front porch. The included breakfasts were extremely nice with good options, even a great buffet one-day, if I recall on a Sunday. We had one dinner which we enjoyed a great deal. We found this to be an excellent value and highly recommend.

We stayed in 4 hotels during our 7 day trip to Costa Rica. This was by far our favorite. We stayed in a standard room. It was much bigger than I expected. The AC worked great. It also had a nice big bathroom. The landscaping at the hotel is beautiful. I felt like I was in paradise. The pool area is lovely. The view from the pool to the volcano is amazing. The water was a comfortable temperature. The breakfast that was included was the best we had. It was an extensive buffet (compared to the other hotels). There were many tours offered by the hotel. We didn't purchase ours through the hotel, but it was nice that there were so many offered.

Nice hotel, good rooms, clean towels everyday. Pool with a view.... on the Arenal. Lots of choise in breakfast, not in the center of Fortuna, but there are restaurants at walking distance and the road is good if you want to drive to town in the dark.
