Overall La Fortuna Suites was a very quaint hotel with nice amenities for the price, however what really made our stay was our fantastic Host (Ian). Ian was helpful throughout the trip giving us recommendations on where to eat, where to visit and general things to do in town. All his recommendation were spot on for our group (4 people)...

Perfect location for wandering around town and any excursion you would like to try. We arrived with very little booked and our host Ian was immensely helpful in booking everything we wanted to do. He was also able to point us towards a few free swimming spots that the locals use.

Our location is convenient, we're located only 3 blocks from the town's central park. Providing my guests with great activities to do is a priority, so that you can maximize your experience in Fortuna. The swimming hole "El Salto" is a great place to cool off. It's free and open to anyone looking for a great time. It's close by...

Lovely spot with a great view of Arenal volcano from a second floor communal terrasse. There are only 6 suites in this well renovated buidling. Off the beaten path yet walking distance to downtown restaurants and night life. Ian was frienddly and very accomodating. Most comfortable we got in our 10 day trip to Costa Rica.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon, and we had a blast. The B&B itself is a little bit off the main road, so it's pretty quiet; but it's a quick walk to the main road in town. Ian was a great host - after we checked in, he dropped by our room with fresh...

Ian is taking really good care of his guests and serves a very good breakfast. He is very helpful in pointing out places of interest in the area. The rooms are nice and clean. The terrace is awesome for reading and relaxing. All in all a really good option for 2-3 nights in La Fortuna.

Highly recommended. Ian went out of his way to help with arranging tours, giving advice, and even gave us a short drive to find a special craft store. The room was quite large, bigger than I expected. I also liked that the location is in the middle of down town and close to everything, but being two blocks off the...
