The place was very nice and very clean. I would definitely stay here again. Approx 30 min walk into La fortuna town if you wanted to walk there. Taxi will only be 3-5 dollars each way. Good restaurants in La Fortuna. I would not eat at the hotel -- very westernized food. The staff overall was helpful - but didn't...

My wife and I stayed here on a recent trip after two different friends had stayed here and recommended it. The views of the volcano from every room are fantastic, and the staff is helpful in arranging any sort of outings that you want. The restaurant serves simple Costa Rican fare that tastes good, and the breakfasts are simple (choice...

I stayed here for only one night during a 2 week trip in Costa Rica. I would love to return and spend more time in Costa Rica and at Hotel La Pradera. This place is so inviting. The grounds are really well kept and beautiful. The room was awesome. It had a huge front window and if you open the...

I recently stayed at La Pradera in La Fortuna. The hotel was recommended by my travel agent and I was not sure what to expect. La Pradera was a clean hotel with a good view of the volcano. It was a short walk to a few stores and restaurants. If you want to do some serious souvenir shopping or want...

Our family of five stayed here for two nights. We were very comfortable with two double beds and one single in the same bungalo. The room was clean. Our pillows were a little lumpy but didn't seem to cause any lost sleep. The view of the volcano was great! Delicious breakfast and helpful staff.

We spent two nights here with 4 adults in a nice cabin, with a terrific front porch. Everything was clean and very nice. We particularly enjoyed the landscaping, and the early AM birding with coffee from our front porch. The included breakfasts were extremely nice with good options, even a great buffet one-day, if I recall on a Sunday. We...

We stayed in 4 hotels during our 7 day trip to Costa Rica. This was by far our favorite. We stayed in a standard room. It was much bigger than I expected. The AC worked great. It also had a nice big bathroom. The landscaping at the hotel is beautiful. I felt like I was in paradise. The pool area...

Nice hotel, good rooms, clean towels everyday. Pool with a view.... on the Arenal. Lots of choise in breakfast, not in the center of Fortuna, but there are restaurants at walking distance and the road is good if you want to drive to town in the dark.

“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)”
