San Bosco Inn, La Fortuna
After many stays, we won't be back.
We have been to San Bosco and enjoyed our stay many times. However, we will not be returning. They had made some changes such as removing the hot tub that we didn't care for. The parking has always been an issue there; especially if they allow semi trucks to come stay. This time our a/c unit didn't function very well either. When the maintenance crew came in to look at it, he opened it up, said not to drop it below 20 degrees Celsius and left. The filter in the unit was horribly filthy and its frame was broken. The staff was friendly, although my wife wasn't happy with the concierge Carlos when he greeted us and made it a point to tell us how good he was at putting our rooms next to each other. She actually asked him if he could, and he told her to wait and let him finish his story which ended with him putting us together. Also, as always, the WiFi is fairly horrid throughout the property.

Kudos to Carlos!
The front desk clerk, Carlos made our stay. He was extremely helpful and knowledgable about activities and ways to save money. He got us a rental car which was cheaper and more convenient than hiring a taxi. The fact we could use the hot springs from their sister hotel also made our stay more luxurious! Wonderful amenity!

Extra surprise!
We had no idea we got free passes to hot springs! That plus the amazing breakfast made a good hotel amazing! We loved La Fortuna and the staff at San Bosco were so friendly!

Two thumbs up!
Great stay; great hotel; great staff. Everyone was helpful and very friendly from check-in to check out. Pool was clean and nice. Sushi restaurant on site was fantastic for lunch. Room was comfortable and there were plenty of other areas around the hotel to sit and read or enjoy a free cup of coffee anytime. The hotel had an arrangement with the nearby Volcano Lodge and Springs to use their facilities as well, and they were top notch. Included breakfast was among the best we encountered in CR with both Tico and NorthAmerican favorites to choose from. Thumbs up!
