Two pools and a Jacuzzi makes this place do add to quality of this hotel. Have your breakfast and dive into one of the pools, making literally only 2 steps from the hotel restaurant. Breakfast isn't bad, there's some choice there. The hotel is gated and the main office is in front by the gate. There's WiFi and two computers...

We were all in all disappointed with our visit to La Fortuna. It seems like a big tourist trap. Also the Hotel San Bosco failed to impress us. The hotel itself is OK, central location and the staff is polite. But rooms are very small. And the breakfast is really not good. Mainly scrambled eggs and "Gallo Pinto" (rice and...

I booked this hotel because I was on a budget. It was very inexpensive. That being said you get what you pay for. La Fortuna did not have anything to peak my interest no nightlife whatsoever so I would have rather spent $50.00 dollars on the resort hotel I spent my first night in. It did have the internet and...

We stayed here for one night whilst passing through La Fortuna and it was nice and comfy with clean rooms and hot showers. We cycled around Lake Arenal and visited the Ecothermales Spa for dinner. All very nice. Breakfast at the hotel wasn't great. Pools and hottubs are a nice edition. Overall a nice place but not luxurious.

We were here for 3 nights in december 2012 and were a bit disappointed. Good points are this hotel is situated in downtown La Fortuna with everything within walking distance, and it has a pool and jacuzzi. Rooms are small and walls are thin though. Breakfast was ok at best. The weather was really bad when we were there (cloudy/rainy...

Starting with the booking by email, my experience with the hotel was great. Diana was very helpful in arranging for us to have rooms for all of our family. The rooms were clean, and we enjoyed comparing the towel animals each day. Breakfast was good and fresh, which got us into our sightseeing days. Good location just off the main...

We stayed here for three nights when we first arrived to Costa Rica. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was included and it was a buffet typical style. The food was good and the pool was clean as well. The best thing about this hotel is the location, right in the middle of town. If you...
