It's on a great location. The service was awesome, the room was big, clean and nice decorated. Hotel staff is very courteous and helpful.
You can see all kinds of animals and birds on the back yard including sloths. If I go to la fortuna again, I will definitely stay there. Recommended for Costa Ricans and foreign tourists.

Hotel Monte Real is beautiful! It's set off the road. Once you enter, there's beautiful, lush landscaping and multiple varieties of plants and trees, all with signs so you can identify what's what. There's a beautiful pool area (very clean and great temperature). The river runs behind the property so you can sit and enjoy nature, a picnic perhaps? The rooms are gorgeous and clean. Comfortable beds, great shower, balcony overlooking the landscape. Danny helped us in the reception and answered all of our questions. Breakfast is included at a restaurant down the road. It's nice to have that covered so you can just take care of the rest of your day. We loved it!

We stayed in this lovely hotel for 4 nights in March. It was perfect. Very clean, and spacious rooms with refrigerator, a/c and 2 private balconies. Beautiful gardens, perfectly landscaped with iguanas, birds, a brook, and pool. Good breakfast just 1 minute from hotel. Everything we needed was a very short walk. Even though you were close to town the hotel was very quiet and private. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here as part of G Adventures "Costa Rica Quest" tour. Hotel is right in the town, very clean, and nicely-decorated. Beautiful grounds, and there was a sloth living in one of the trees! No complaints, would definitely stay here again.

Monte Real Hotel is absolutely ideal. It's within perfect walking distance to the small town with various restaurants, shops, chemists and bars. The rooms are mega basic having stayed in room number 3, ground floor. However the hotel is clean, has lovely gardens, helpful staff, tours on offer, wifi and hot showers!!! I would recommend this hotel / B&B as well as advise you to visit the nearby Don Rufinos restaurant! Yum

Enjoyed spending 3 nights here. The staff was very helpful, giving us excellent advice. The gardens are lovely and we enjoyed the pool after a day of being on a tour. Only weakness was the breakfast which was offsite and quite ordinary. We had a view of the volcano which although inactive was very visible.

We were lucky enough to be transferred to this hotel because the original one we were booked into was full. We stayed here I think four or five nights and it was wonderful. The breakfast is at a very tastey offsite restaurant that gives you plenty of food. Location is close to everything you'd want to walk to for souvenirs, supermarket, and food. We had a lovely view of the volcanoe from our room balcony which was fun to see in the mornings. There was no street noise at all, just forest sounds. It was fun the because the property backed onto a river and forest, lots of animals liked to hang around. Sevearl birds nested in the trees, an iguana liked to hang out outside our door, and I've heard even a sloth likes to hang around the property. Super friendly staff, clean rooms, nice pool. We will recommend this place to all of our friends.

Room Tip: We had a floor on the second level right near the back of the property which was super nice.
