My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in December and loved it. The grounds were very nice, clean, and well maintained. There was a pool, hot tub and a restaurant that served breakfast, which was included in our rate. The location was close to the town of La Fortuna - about a 25 minute walk or...

Cute bungalow room close to the pool with perfect view of volcano. Rooms are simple and clean with large bathroom and small refrigerator. Breakfast was excellent and cooked to order. $3 cab ride to town. Hotel is on the main road, but the room was quiet. Right next to an open field with a few cows running around. Lots of...

This hotel is located by Arenal volcano and on sunny days has a great view of the volcano. The people working the front desk were helpful and outgoing. Our transfer got us there prior to check-in and there were no rooms available, so they let us keep our things behind the desk while we went out and about. They helped...

This hotel far exceeded my expectations! Great location, super clean bungalows, manicured grounds, great view, tranquil however ATV tours leave from there, great pool and jacuzzi, this was the best at a reasonable price! Rent a bike and go into La Fortuna from there or get on an ATV tour, but whatever you do, the Sky Trek zipline trip is...

Well, as with all places there were both good and bad things. I'll start with the bad I guess. The bed was very uncomfortable, it felt like I was sleeping on the bed frame instead of a mattress. Also we were there for two days and there was a horrible smell from the bathroom the whole time. I think maybe...

The place is lovely. Even if the hotel is by the road, it was always serene… well except for the five minutes that it takes to start the RCs and to take them to the road. The internet was fast, the ice machine always was full and the place was kept constantly clean. We had the rooms that were just...

We stayed in one of their bungalows. They aren't the most beautiful rooms, but they were clean. And talk about incredible views WOW! This hotel is family runned and has a super friendly staff that let us in on some local deals. We had breakfast everymorning, the food was cooked to order and delicious. I would definitely go back.

Stayed here 3 nights with my GF for our adventure trip to La Fortuna. It was just what we needed. The hotel was centrally located for our plans/activities (we went to La Fortuna Waterfall, zip lining, Arenal volcano tour and to the hot springs). Room was clean (had a/c, hot water, tv), staff was ok, breakfast was good, pool/jacuzzi were...

La Fortuna definitely is one of those places you have to visit if you come to Costa Rica however due its fame it is also one of those places where you spend more. Prices, as usual, do not necessarily meet the quality criteria but we were happy when we found Holtel La Pradera. Like most of the hotels in the...
