We loved our time at Secreto La Fotuna. We ended up staying a couple more nights than expected as we needed to cancel some later stages of our vacation, but couldn't have been at a better place for that to happen. The gardens are just beautiful, with great views of the volcano and attract a very wide selection of birds. The 3-toed sloth in the tree on the edge of the property was the icing on the cake. The room was comfortable and clean. The pool is small but adequate for cooling off. Alex and his staff are extremely helpful and kind. Would highly recommend it if you're staying in La Fortuna.

We enjoyed relaxing at the pool with the volcano view in the distance. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. It was easy to walk to town to any of the bars and restaurants within a 1 to 10 minute walk. Still we even got to see the only sloth of our trip right on the property and there was even a sloth baby!
