This is the perfect place to stay a few nights while visiting the La Fortuna, Arenal area. It was close to all of the places we wanted to see. Our two double bed room was very large and nice inside. We had an amazing view of Arenal Volcano directly from the balcony of our room. We loved the layout of... More

We were told how luck we were to be able to see the wonderful sight of the volcano, not in mist! This is a family run hotel. Mum tends the beautiful garden. I had to visit this small garden several times. The flowers looked unreal as in England we only see tiny versions at Garden Centres. We had a family... More

Stop looking for places to stay in La Fortuna and book here-now! This place is amazing. Super affordable prices and amazing customer service. Perfect location just outside of town. Walkable to town and about a 2 minute drive but there are tons of places to eat around the hotel and a grocery store right next door. Views of the volcano,... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Costa Rica and had a wonderful visit at Hotel Bijagua. David was very helpful in coordinating our activities in the area. Rooms were clean and the pool was a great place to relax after a day of adventures! Would definitely stay here again for any future visits to La Fortuna.

We really liked Hotel Bijagua. David was so nice and the customer service was amazing. We especially liked the shared kitchen. The only negative thing was the dogs in the immediate neighborhood who barked at night.

We stayed here for 7 nights (myself, partner and teenage daughter) As we'd never been to Costa Rica before, we booked this hotel on the trip advisor rating and we weren't disappointed. The 9 eco lodges are spotless and well equipped. The grounds are immaculate and the pool is to die for after a day of exploring. It's next door... More

To start with the punchline – Bijagua was clean, convenient, hassle-free, and (at the $60-70 per night that we payed) one of the best bargains in town. Our stay at Bijagua was great.

David welcomed us and was extremely helpful and genuine since the beginning. The hotel was one of the cleanest we found in Costa Rica. The room was spacious, with two queen beds, air conditioning, fan, refrigerator and LCD TV screen. The pool area was also spotless and a good place to relax after a lot of walking. The WiFi also...
