Heidi was very welcoming and my boyfriend and I enjoyed the common area at The Sleeping Indian. Unfortunately, we didn't sleep well either of the two nights that we stayed here. We both woke up covered in mosquito bites both nights, literally from head to toe. On Saturday morning, we were woken up by weed-sacking in the backyard from before 6am until 8am. The noise was so loud that we not only woke up but also chose to leave the room. I'm guessing that we were unlucky with these circumstances, as otherwise The Sleeping Indian would have been a pleasant experience.
The Sleeping Indian was a perfect place to stay: excellent location, beautiful decor with fantastic art, breeze blows right through the main space, bedrooms are clean with private bathrooms, shower was great. Heidy was fantastic - super friendly down-to-earth and very sweet. She gave us a detailed overview of the area and lie options and then booked a day-long tour for us. We have to come back one day to actually SEE the volcano (was clouded over our whole visit) so we would stay here again for sure!
This place was very nice, clean, and easy to find. Heidi was very nice and easy to communicate with. The price to do laundry was kind of steep ($5 each to wash or dry) but it was the only place we stayed that even offered it. We opted to wash and hang our clothes to dry on the line, but it was so humid that half of them didn't dry completely and ended up a bit mildewy. If you choose to stay in La Fortuna (we were much happier when we stayed a few towns over- Fortuna is just like one big souvenir shop), the Sleeping Indian is definitely a good choice.
The Sleeping Indian was very nice! Heidy was very helpfull all the time! she managed tours, taxi & transfers for us. the house is placed in the center of la Fortuna. around the Indian you'll find Restaurants, Souvenir Shops, a Church, Supermarkets, Tour Offices... everything in walking distance.
Heidy welcomed us even if we arrived later than expected. She showed us the house and explained everything very well. We lived in room 5 which was rather spacious and clean and jas a very comfy bed. The location is just perfect since it's in the center of La Fortuna. There are many restaurants and some shops nearby, if you want you can also use the kitchen in the guest house. We really enjoyed our stay in The Sleeping Indian!
The Sleeping Indian Guest House is situated just off of the main street in La Fortuna, making it a great place to stay. The common area is quite charming, with a kitchen, sitting area, and balcony. The room we stayed in got a bit hot and humid (we stayed during the end of the dry season in room #4) - but a fan was provided to help with the heat. Overall, a great value!
Quite pleasant experience. Excellent location near the church and nice balcony to have a beer at the end of the day. Cold water was on and off in the shower but that was not too bad. Overall would recommend!

About the Host, Peter
Peter Ferguson the owner of the The Sleeping Indian Guesthouse and welcomes international travelers from all over the world.. Peter is a world traveler who has explored many varied countries and environments and has chosen La Fortuna as his favorite place on the planet and is enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of this special area of a special country. The Sleeping Indian Guesthouse is centrally located in downtown La Fortuna named after a little chain of mountains next to Volcano Arenal in La Fortuna, Costa Rica. The wind and rain of millions of years of evolution has formed a chain of mountains that looks just like a sleeping indian. The more you look- the more you are amazed, since it seems that these giant mountains actually are a big Indian lying down. We think that no matter what kind of traveler you are, everybody likes to feel at home. Making you feel at home is Peter's goal. He loves people and he loves hosting.
