What a place. Totally isolated and with beautiful cabins with inspiration from Bali. Nice wood fired hot tub with great lake views. The sunset is amazing here with the lake right in front of you and vulcanoes in the background. A nice sundeck with sun beds and just a very chilled atmosphere! Cute dogs too! Prices are a bit high...

This place is truly magical -- it's definitely one of the most special and unique places we've traveled! (Thank you to Kat and Steve, the owners, for dreaming up this incredible destination!) We simply can't say enough great things about it! We're already missing the delicious breakfasts on the porch of the bungalow. If you're looking at the pictures thinking...

This was our 3rd stay at La Fortuna and once again everything was terrific. We always enjoy the unique experience of having breakfast and dinner served to us on our casita's front porch with the tranquil view of majestic Lake Atitlan. The meals are always excellent and a welcomed eclectic break from what we've experienced in other hotels around the...

Lovely Balinese inspired design and we enjoyed the stylish outdoor bathroom ( the wc is under cover). The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served in your room, very well presented. Hotter coffee, ripe fruit and orange juice that is not as sour as lemon juice would help. The hot tub is in a wonderful position, best about...

Hi Richard, Usually when we get lame reviews I send a snarly response, but you have raised a few good points so I will address them. We sure would have appreciated if you had communicated your unhappiness with our food directly to us, rather than telling us you loved everything to our face and backstabbing us online as we would...

Stayed here for three nights on our honeymoon in November and it really was an incredible hotel - as good as all the reviews we had read on here. You could easily stay in La Fortuna and not move a muscle for your entire trip, they have great spots to relax and look out over the water, books, board games...

What can I say about La Fortuna that you haven’t already read in countless reviews. The place is everything you want in a romantic get away. I’ll describe what your experience will typically be like. You’ve left Antigua and have likely spent a few hours in a shuttle on some windy roads, all the while wondering when you are going...

La Fortuna was nothing less than a fantastic dream… unlike anything we have experienced before! My wife and I stumbled upon images of the resort while surfing the net for a romantic getaway within our budget, and the place looked very promising. When we actually arrived, we were simply blown away, and by the end of our three-day stay, we...
