Excellent location near bus station. Internet out of range in some rooms. Musty mold smell in one interior room without window to open for ventilation. Large floor fan was appreciated in the heat and rainy season humidity of La Fortuna. My room was a safe refuge from alarming bolts of lightening in an afternoon storm.

Good value for money in Arenal, room was clean, good wifi, a small kitchen with fridge.They have a tour office


We were overall happy with our stay here. The location is 2 minutes out of town with a spectacular view of the volcano. Our only complaint would be that the room wasn't cleaned regularly, you had to leave your key at reception and request it to be cleaned. The en suite gave off a bad sewage smell too. The guy at reception was helpful in the end but not the most amiable character.
