Great location, outside of town, quiet (depending on where your room is on the property), friendly staff, breakfast (included) had lots of options and was yummy! Great patios off the rooms. One big cold pool, one small kiddie pool and two big hot tubs! View of the volcano (during non rainy season) can't be beat for the price. Only downside... More

This hotel is beautiful. They are lodge style rooms and are VERY spacious. They include ample bedroom and bathroom space, hot water, wifi, a breakfast buffet, a porch, and even 2 hot tubs and a pool. The staff is VERY nice and accommodating. Since it is a resort, they also have a spa and ATVs for rent. You can also... More

My mother and I just loved the location, the view, and the privacy of the bungalow. It was clean and comfortable as well as convenient to town and to Baldi Springs. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent.

We stayed in the bungalows for four nights. They're very cute with a gorgeous view of the volcano right in front of you. Rocking chairs and little table and chairs on the front porch to sit and enjoy. The pool is small but also has a beautiful view. So wanted to play pool at the pool table but never had... More

I spent four nights at this hotel just outside the town of La Fortuna and had a really great stay. Having arrived very late the first night (around midnight) there was a security guard waiting with my room key despite the office being shut, and everyone who works there is so friendly and helpful - the maids even made my...

I'll remember most everyday coming back to my room and my towels are folded as a different animal. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a 15 minute walk to the centre of town or a US$3 cab ride. Nice place to stay, big spacious room and a private spa bath in my room. Hot water comes of the... More

The hotel itself was great, the pool was amazing with a view of the volcano. The restaurant was delicious but a little pricey compared to the surrounding sodas. The room was spacious and clean except for some ants. Good hot water and cold AC. The one complaint I have about the room is the walls are paper thin - bring... More

LaPradera is in a nice location has all the amenities and helpful friendly staff. This is an ATV tour hotel with an emphasis on motor sports so expect noise. It also has bus tours so expect a crowded dining room at times. The bedding includes fosilized pillows worn sheets and cheap and old mattresses. There's no insulation in the walls... More

There are so many positive things to say about this hotel: Nature - We stayed for four nights in one of the bungalows. The animal sounds at night felt as though you were in the middle of the jungle. You could even hear animals on the roof! We sat out on the porch and enjoyed coffee, listened, and enjoyed the... More

“I recommend the cabinas.”

“Ask for room numbers in the upper 30's. Better view of volcano and quieter.”

“The bungalows are more private than the rooms.”

“I preferred rooms tucked behind the check-in center so I wouldn't have my view disrupted by cars driving through. (I believe numbers 30-38)”
