This is a family owned hotel with great rooms, a/c.
There is a nice sitting area to hang out and asborb the site of the volcano.

In the morning, Hector greets you with a smile and prepares an excellent breakfast!
The front staff is courteous and helpful, always greeting you with a smile.
We spent a week in La Fortuna as we found so many treks and activites to do. This hotel is perfectly located. La Fortuna is noisy in the city, bring earplugs.
There is no pool...

This is a great hotel in the middle of La Fortuna. Central location in town, close to all bars, shops, and restaurants. The middle of the hotel is a big patio that overlooks the town. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is delicious.

The staff was the best. We were greeted by a young woman who told us her family owns and runs the hotel. When we were ready to leave, the battery in our rental car was dead. We communicated the situation as best we could in half Spanish half English and the gentleman working there got his car and gave us a jump. Super nice!

Next time we are in Arenal/La Fortuna, we will be staying here again.

We took room 33 which is the highest room with the best view to Arenal mountain, was very nice. The room is also very nice and comfortable. We paid 70$ per night on the green season but you can cheaper in this hotel without this view and a different Room.

The hotel is located very centrally, and the staff is very friendly. The terrace is a pretty place to hang out and admire the volcano. There is a lovely coffee bar opposite and a great soda that serves awesome soup among other dishes. The room was light and airy with air-conditioning and a fridge. The breakfast area was clean and breakfast was good.

We flew in from Texas to San Jose, rented a car and drove to Fortunata and just wanted a convenient downtown hotel for the night....this one did the trick! Our 3rd floor room was very small but served our need to just crash. You'd likely want to bring your own face towels (theirs are like sand paper), but bath towels were fine. One other thing. only available electrical outlet was in the bathroom or high up by the a/c unit....none on the bedroom walls for chargers and such!

The staff were super-nice and the very inexpensive room (<$60 on hotels.com) included buffet breakfast. Breakfast was as good as the that in our later, pricier hotels and lots of foreign languages being spoken from around the world. I particularly want to thank the front desk attendant....wish I could remember his name....who let me park right in front and had someone watch my car all night! Don't miss going to the 3rd level to get best pix of the volcano. And make sure to stroll to the park just a block away....beautiful.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if you don't want to lug bags up stairs, ask for a lower level room. T...

I stayed in Las Colinas for my 2 first nights in CR, time to see the volcano and take a look around.
I booked a preferent room with "great view" to the volcano and "balcony" : the view was quite better from the shared patio, and the balcony was just the corridor from the room to the patio ...
Room was clean and quite big for us, but noisy till bar, close to the hotel, closes.

Breakfast is ok but if you are still hungry or want to change, get a breakfast at the soda just in front of the hotel : thats the place to eat in La Fortuna ;)

People working there and reception servicxe were absolutely wonderfull!

Las Colinas is located in the center of La Fortuna (15 minutes far from El Arenal), and you can reach any restaurant, bar, soda, travel/sport agency from this point.
There are some SPAs and resorts outside the city, on the way to the volcano : if you have a higher budget, i would recommend this option, as you could benefit natural hot springs pools and maybe better rooms.

For mid budget travellers, Las Colinas is a good option.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room on the second floor with view to the shared patio.
