Peace, Quiet and Relaxing
We wanted a hotel that had peace, quiet and was relaxing. This hotel fit our needs perfectly. It is off the beaten path, but not too far away if you have a car. You can be to the center of La Fortuna in 10 minutes. The hotel has blackout curtains, which makes it perfect if you want to sleep in! And a comfortable king size bed! They serve 3 options of breakfast every morning from 7:30am - 9:00am. The only downside is if you want a room with a fridge, coffee maker, microwave, etc. However, when you are on vacation, you can make do. Luis was super friendly. He handled the front desk and served breakfast. He bent over backwards to meet our needs. If your looking for a place to rest and relax, but yet not too far from the center of La Fortuna, this is the place for you.

La Fortuna trip.
We had a great time. Luis went out of his way to be helpful with tours, restaurants & general information about the area. The road to Volcano Gold Loft is very rough but the staff made it worth it. We would come back.

Exceptional 10.0
This is a great, new hotel that combines a sleek, modern European vibe with warm Costa Rican hospitality. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the food is tasty (both everyday breakfast and a Churrasco dinner and good wine that we had one night). It's nestled high in the rainforest, and the views are breath-taking--toucan watching included. The location does mean a mile's drive up a rough gravel road best made in a sturdy vehicle; our small 4x4 was perfect both for this hotel and many other gravel roads we encountered in Costa Rica.

A jewel in the middle of the jungle
Everything was perfect .....this new hotel is pure luxury in the middle of the jungle....and a short distance by car (7 minutes)to la fortuna town. William welcomed us like we were family, he wanted to make sure we had a perfect stay, nothing was too much trouble for him....thank you so much William.....We had the big room ( 2 adults ,2 children ) in the corner with windows over watching the jungle and the swimming pool....wonderful view....lovely room and confortable beds....we didn t want to leave the place, my daughter loved the pool....And just the morning we left we had the big pleasure to see a sloth ,that was incredible.....apparently he lives there.... Brilliant place.... The only thing I can advise you is to look on your GPS for " princesa de la Luna " hotel because the gold loft hotel is just before the princesa , and as this hotel is brand new they didn t have the signs yet , but they will soon....
