We stayed at 4 different places while in Costa Rica and this was my favorite. Simple but cute cabins. Loved seeing the volcano every morning and the grounds were beautifully landscaped. Great breakfast every morning with a very friendly staff. Nice Pool. Nice location. Just a short walk in to La Fortuna, but you feel like you are in the...

Stayed here three nights as part of an Exodus trip. It's lovely to have your own little villa, each spacious and immaculately clean with big bathroom and walk in shower. Beds comfy. There is a lovely pool with plenty of bird life. An open restaurant does fantastic breakfast with eggs cooked fresh to order. The staff especially the manager were...

This lodge is located just outside of the downtown area of La Fortuna. It was a very short 10 minute walk to get to shops and restaurants. The grounds of the hotel were very lovely with a great view of the Arenal Volcano. We were very lucky to have some clear days. The breakfast was ok, and the staff was...

Spotless cabins a ten minute walk to central La Fortuna. Staff is friendly and was very helpful planning a chocolate tour and jeep-boat-jeep ride to Monteverde. Restaurant was great, we requested a non-menu shrimp cocktail that was fantastic. Family owned and operated

When I booked Montechiari I was nervous that SOMETHING had to be wrong for the decent price we were paying. The pictures looked so nice. We arrived and I have got to say my expectations were well exceeded. The hotel is located in a great location with a great view of the volcano. We were lucky enough to get some...

I stayed here for one night during my horseback tour across Costa Rica. Lovely views and a nice large room. Room had air conditioning, hot water, and a television. Each cabin was set apart from the others and had it's own flower garden out front which attracted humming birds! There was a nice pool that sat directly across from Volcano...

I stayed two nights there. The area was very quiet. The staff were friendly. WiFi worked just in reception. Just 5-6 min walk to center of the city. Room was very clean and had TV. Breakfast was included.

Nice, clean cottages 500 m from city center and 6,5 kms from the waterfall. Adequate breakfast with fruit and eggs. They have a bird feeding table where they put fruit every morning that attracts a lot of colorful birds - very nice.

We loved our little bungalow! The grounds were full of flowers and hummingbirds very beautiful! Check with them if their pool is working again, if a pool is important to you. We were disappointed that there was no pool! Other than the lack of pool, breakfast was tasty and rooms were really cute! It would be nice for them to...
