We were intially quoted $55 for the room, then $50 if we paid cash. We went to see the room, and it was so great, we decided to stay for 2 nights, so we were charged $45/night. This included breakfast. Breakfast was good, but not spectacular.
We got our own cabana, which was huge. Two comfy beds, cable TV, A/C, a huge shower with hot water, and a mini-fridge (key for storing cheap beer).
There was a pool, with a great view of the volcano.
The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from downtown La Fortuna, and the cabanas aren't right on the road, so it's very quiet.
The staff was very helpful, booking tours and transport for us. There is laundry service too.
If you are used to the comforts of places like the Hilton, this place may not be for you. But if you're a backpacker, or happy with a Holiday Inn, this place is like paradise. Cheap, private, and lovely.
