Hidden Gem For Sure!
Book this hidden gem! After leaving our swanky beach resort, our hearts led us back to La Fortuna. We only needed accommodations for one night and the price was right so we booked here. We were so happy with the level of eagerness the staff shown to make us have the best experience. In the morning they prepared a breakfast for us next to their two adorable pools with waterfalls. The landscape is absolutely gorgeous. Our only complaint was that we did not discover this place sooner!

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The facilities are very clean, modern and comfortable. Each casita is private and spacious and the entire property is very secure and safe. I brought my wife and three little children and we were all very comfortable in our casita. We love the pool and hot tub.

8/10 Very good

This little hidden gem was surprisingly very nice and accommodating. It was very clean and inexpensive compared to other places nearby. The staff was helpful when needed and very quiet because it was off the main road. It was now to far from all the activities, restaurants, and convenience stores. If i had the opportunity to stay in La fortuna in the future i would stay here again. The pool and relaxation area was impressive too.
