Monte Real offers travelers the best of both worlds — it’s in the midst of the busy town of La Fortuna, but also offers a serene view of the Arenal Volcano, which you’ll get to learn more about on nature walks through the park and on boating tours of Arenal Lake. It’s also a tree-filled property, allowing you to have a bit of an oasis from the town, in spite of being an easy walk from all of the town’s traveler services.

La Fortuna is known for its proximity to the attractions and activities surrounding Arenal Volcano National Park. Travelers here can take memorable hikes to the volcano as well as the nearby La Fortuna Waterfall. Steel your nerves for zip lining and rappelling through the noisy and colorful jungle, to offer just a couple of examples of popular adventure activities. But it’s not all action and adventure – you can also head to the nearby hot springs, many of which are on beautifully landscaped grounds, with on-site restaurants and spa facilities.

Your hosts will greet you with a welcome fruit cocktail. In your room, you’ll find a supply of coffee that housekeeping replenishes on a daily basis, and there’s a free, a la carte breakfast that’s included in the price. The food cooked here is served promptly and served made-to-order.

La Fortuna sees a lot of visitors, so you’ll have a ton of nearby options for the rest of your meals, including the traditional sodas that serve cheap, simple meals. Check out the cafes that serve coffee made from locally harvested beans. There are also plenty of bars if you fancy a drink with the locals. When you’re ready to return to the hotel, consider heading to the pool that comes with a lovely view of the Arenal Volcano. The hotel is right next to a river and has its own patch of forest, making the grounds an inviting place for sloths, monkeys, and butterflies.

Rooms are pleasantly understated and quite clean, with tile floors and sturdy furniture, including a writing desk and a TV. Wi-Fi is available in the rooms, as well as throughout the property. Each of the rooms’ private bathrooms comes stocked with environmentally friendly products.

Feedback from Travelers

Great location but not much for amenities. Breakfast next door was wonderful!

- AMITA K, MAR 2020

Great views of the volcano, loads of frogs to see in the frog garden and really helpful staff who recommended activities and restaurants.

- JOANNE L, FEB 2020

Really nice hotel and really helpful people at the front desk. Perfect location to walk anywhere in town. It was really cool to see toucans and sloths right outside. The breakfast next door is a really nice perk and it's a good breakfast.
