“Nice location, Decent place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2009

We stayed here for one night. It was a quaint little place run by a family. The location was nice, as it was walking distance to some restaurants and local stores. It was about a 10-20 drive to the hot springs as well.

There are several little cottages or cabins, each with a private bathroom. Overall it was clean and decent with a small fridge in the room too!
However, it was raining pretty hard one night, so I got a splash of water on my face due to a small leak. We just moved the bed over a bit and we were fine. Other than that, it was convenient and reliable. Perfect for our one-nighter.

I highly recommend the Costa Rican restaurant a little up the street on the same side of the street. It has open seating inside and out. GREAT food with great service and friendly staff. Aguas frescas were good... we ate there twice!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2009

We stayed four nights at Hotel Guacamaya (Cabinas Guacamaya). We didn't have reservations, but walked up to it because it had a nice courtyard. Luckily, they had space for us.

The rooms are simple, but they are clean and provide air conditioning, a small refrigerator, and warm water. (Not hot water, but I found that rare in Costa Rica).

It is close to downtown so it is easy to walk to restaurants and tour agencies. Within less than two blocks is a bank, a grocery store, and a pharmacy.

The beautiful courtyard provides a relaxing place to sit that makes the town life feel more distant. While sitting outside our room, we saw numerous birds, especially humming birds.

Would definitely stay there again.

We were really pleased with Cabinas Guacamaya. It's nothing fancy, but clean, has good water pressure, and in a great location. It's about a block of the "main" drag in La Fortuna which makes it pretty quiet, but we were still able to walk everywhere. It's a great deal, too!
