The setting is really beautiful. Possibly my favourite hotel ever. The rooms are set looking around at the centre which is filled with plants which attracts lots of butterflies and birds such as hummingbirds. All rooms have glass French doors to easily see out. There are 2 pools and jacuzzi in the centre. Such a relaxing setting. Breakfast was fruit and a drink plus with gallo pinto, pancakes or toast and jam. Easily walkable to the square in 5 mins.

We really enjoyed our stay Secreto La Flortuna. The location was very convenient to town. Close enough to walk but far enough to avoid road noise. Breakfast was fast and you had a choice of three filling options. They put out some fruit for the birds and while we were there we saw many birds, an iguana and even a sloth in the tree over the reception area! The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Highly recommend this hotel!

Lovely hotel
Nice, clean rooms, amazing view over the volcano and the cherry on top were all the birds and the sloths that hang around in the trees right in front of the hotel. Super happy with our stay!
