Very well kept,picturesque hotel

Located near lots of restaurants and the Central Park of La Fortuna with a view of the Arenal Volcano just minutes away. It's sister hotel allowed us to use the Thermals free of charge. Many excellent meals and plenty to do within a short drive distance. Very relaxing😊

Great for the La Fortuna area

Posted May 24, 2017
Without staying at a resort, this was one of the better hotels that you can get in the area. The staff is very nice and the rooms are really great for what you pay for. They have safes for you to put your belongings, and they have a great outdoor pool facility. They even give you free coffee and tea daily. The room itself has no real frills, basic bed, but it's clean and has great air conditioning. Some minor ants in the bathroom, but otherwise it's lovely. Just know it's about a 25 minute drive from all the mountain activities, but this is the closest real city.

Great value and location

Posted Apr 18, 2017 on Orbitz
Hotel staff went above and beyond to accommodate me during my stay. San Bosco's owner also owns a resort with hot springs just outside of town and you have access to the springs, but must provide your own transportation. The hotel itself is located within walking distance of downtown, and is well known enough that it's no issue for drivers to find. They offer breakfast at 6:30, however, I was there at 6:50 and it was not fully set up. Also, beware they offer a soap dispenser in the shower, not an actual bar of soap. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would recommend/stay again.

Good basic hotel. We got free armbands to go to the Volcano Lodge and Springs which was great! Very nice pool and hot springs there. Both hotels are owned by the same person.

Nice stay with excellent staff.

Posted Apr 2, 2017
Location: Shopping and restaurants walking distance. Decent sushi restaurant adjacent to hotel.
Enjoyed the location as it is close to town but away from some of the traffic and noise of town. The room was comfortable. Pool and Jacuzzi were a nice treat. Breakfast was included and good/plentiful. The only downside was that I tried to extend my stay had to wait until my checkout day to be told that there were no more rooms available.

The hotel is located right near the center of La Fortuna, and it's easy to walk to number of restaurants. The staff were excellent, and helped us plan our itinerary in detail - with some good advice, and going beyond the obvious places/tours (if you insist on asking them for alternatives :)). The rooms were a good size, very clean, ample parking place - and basically a well functioning place. Breakfast was great. And they give free passes to hot springs at another hotel! The only down side i would list is it lacked character compared to other places we stayed in Costa Rica - but that didn't matter for us, as you can see Arenal right in front on clear days, and we were out and about all day :)
