The hotel is in a great location, but is old and tired in appearances. The staff need to pick up their game a bit when it comes to service.

What a great staff they have. All were very friendly. Thanks to Jason for helping me with my key issue. The grounds are very nice, situated across the road from the volcano. Rooms were ok..... mine had no phone or bedside lamp like our other travelers in our group and the refrigerator door was rusted. It was clean though. Their zip line tour was great. Breakfast was also a plus!

Pros: Location, staff, pools.
Cons: Rooms need just a small bit of maintenance -- screen repair, weather stripping on the bottom of the doors...
Location: This hotel is in close proximity to La Fortuna town, La Fortuna waterfall, several entrances to the volcano, lots of hiking, activities, Lake Arenal
The Montana de Fuego staff were super friendly and very willing to help. The location between the Arenal park entrance the La Fortuna town is convenient, especially if you have a car. The mini market across the street is great. The pools are lovely. The rooms themselves need a bit of TLC, but were comfortable and clean. And, wow, the shower water was nice and hot and powerful.

Ant Hotel

Posted Sep 15, 2016
The staff were okay. There were ants all over the bungalow I stayed in (bathroom, bedroom and they even made it in my bed). I informed staff of this issue but they didn't seem to do too much. They said it's normal but it wasn't to me. I ended up paying to stay at another resort after I already paid to stay there. Bugs were all over the food. If I was an outdoorsy person, this would've been not so terrible. Plus there was no wifi in the rooms. They could have at least not charge me for the bar tab since they wouldn't refund me for the days I didn't stay. Never again

they cheated - gave us junior suites instead of the suites I paid for and gave our suites to other guests so only after 2 days they gave us the suites. they credited us for the difference in price - but ruined our 2 first days of vacation. the suites were far from restaurant and front desk - so one couple had to move back to the room they got first. we with the other couple liked the suites and had to deal with the distance. no WiFi in the rooms although in the booking form it says that there is for $5 - but not, no Wifi at all. even in the restaurant it is not always working. at the pool not working at all. the hot springs have dirty water.

Pros: see above
Cons: better lights in the room
Location: Lots to do - halfway between the National park and La Fortuna
Attractive room with great view of Arenal, but they had installed low wattage energy saving bulbs so very difficult to read in bed and shave in the bathroom. The bathroom shower was like a faucet - no spray - but plenty of volume. Otherwise, a nice breakfast, pleasant and helpful staff and flowering trees and bushes that attracted a variety of birds.

Towels lacking!

3 out of 5
by from New York, NY
Posted Aug 24, 2015
Cons: They need to increase their towel supply.
Location: We were about 10 minutes from the town.
If we go to Costa Rica again I would not stay at this hotel. While the room was clean, there were no towels in the room and when I called the front desk I was told they were still in the dryer! They didn't mention this when we checked in and didn't even have a towel to dry hands after using the bathroom. They brought us two towels to start with even though there were three of us staying. They eventually brought us two more and the floor mat. On the 2nd day the maid took the dirty towels but never brought back clean ones or a new floor mat. Again we needed to call. Also, there are no shower curtains and the water sprays every where and they are very conservative with the towels. I have never had this problem at any hotel no matter what country I was in. It was very strange. We had a similar issue with the pool towels... very hard to get. The rate includes breakfast which was above average. The decor is very weird in the bathroom. The TV's are not flat screens and the picture is not great. No Wifi in hotel rooms which is a problem when traveling with young children. The hotel staff was very nice. We had a nice view of the volcano and they had several nice pools but we didn't have time to spend a lot of time at them.

Everything was great! An important thing to remember is that you are in Costa Rica..... Not in a Hilton, so not everything is perfect..... The staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was very good. The bugalow-style rooms are seperate from each other so it mades it a quiet stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to La Fortuna and am looking forward to go back!

Secluded hot springs escape in the midst of Arenal

5 out of 5

Posted Apr 21, 2015
Pros: We love the hot springs, jacuzzi tub, and swim up bar/restaurant the best. And the pesto, ceviche, and vegetarian sandwiches were all delicious!
Cons: Nothing to improve!
I took my husband, 13-year-old neice, and 7-year-old daughter to Montana del Fuego, and we all had an incredible time. We had the hot springs practically to ourselves. If you are looking for a romantic get-away, this is the perfect location! And if you're going with your family, as we did, this spot is ideal. We barely left the premises! It was such a treat to be able to soak in the hot springs, surrounded by lush vegetation all around, and with an incredible view of the volcano. We ate lunch and drank margaritas right in the hot springs. The staff was all very generous, welcoming, and incredibly relaxed. I felt like I was at a giant spa all weekend! And the kids couldn't have loved it more. The room was comfortable and clean - our favorite Costa Rica hotel. I highly recommend Montana del Fuego!
