We really enjoyed our stay at the Regina Hotel. The staff was amazing, always there to help us out and help us organize our activities since we had nothing planned prior to our trip. Rocio (manager/front desk) was extremely helpful, funny and fun to talk to. We stayed in a room that overlooked the street. There was a balcony were...

The location and price of this hotel is excellent. This hotel is located in the middle of everything and the price was definitely right. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

We stayed in unit 8, which was the very last room and facing the volcano but also the street. The room itself was quite spacious with two double beds, a small dining table, a mini fridge and a small kitchenette (no hot plate). It was very good value for what we got. It's located in town so easily walkable to...

Thank you staying at the Regina and taking the time to write a review. Our central location has many advantages, but at times there is the traffic and nightlife noise. In your specific case that night was an activity in the outside the bar with a live music, but this is not all the time. For fire safety we do...

We stayed here for two nights, great view of the volcano from our balcony. Service was great and the location is great for lots of restaurants, cafes and stores. We are spoiled in America as the beds were hard and uncomfortable but I think that's the norm for most places in Costa Rica (without breaking the bank). As previously stated...

Hello, Thank you for choosing the Regina for your lodging. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Sorry about the traffic noise.

Good place. We initially stayed at another place outside of town. We liked this more. Its right in the center of town. The A/C rooms were very clean and spacious. It does have the standard Costa Rican hotel harder mattresses and pillows (hard to avoid) of this level of hotel, but we were very pleased with the room. You have...

A lovely hotel: comfortable beds, nice cold AC, big bathroom, daily turn down service, clean towels every 2 days (or as requested), terrace with views of the volcano. Rosio the manager is excellent and really helpful, going above and beyond to make your stay a good one and helping with any trips or tours you'd like to book. Highly recommended!...

Great location on the edge of La Fortuna, just a few hundred metres from the very centre of town and with plenty of restaurants and bars in easy walking distance. We had a lovely corner room with a wrap around balcony that provided sensational views of the volcano. The room itself was spotlessly clean, quite large, and very well equipped...

This place is awesome. A true gem in la Fortuna, Costa Rica. It's clean, comfortable and the staff are extremely helpful. The rooms are huge and the view of Volcan Arenal is spectacular. I would definitely recommend and return to this jewel of la Fortuna. Believe me you will not be disappointed.
