Interaction with Guests
About me?, Dogs lover (puddle style... maybe not a manly breed, but well guys... nobody can be perfect... just kidding).
I LOVE tourism and that's why I've been working in this industry for over than 10 years, so I pretty much know what people is looking for, when we talk about service, lodging, activities, etc.
I guarantee you will feel that you arrived to warm place, pretty similar to a piece of your home :). That's my goal with every guest.
Second promise :) is: I will be ALWAYS available for you and when I say always it means 24/7. If you have any question, doubt, inconvenient, whatever you might think that I can help you, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Once the reservation is confirmed, I will also send you a document with more address details and recommendations about where to eat, what to do, etc.
As I mentioned before, the neighborhood is safe as well as quiet (family area). As safe as you can walk at midnight without any concern (you can also confirm it in many past reviews from clients).
The neighbors are also a plus. Most of them are families and they work for restaurants, hotels, tour operators. Some of them speak fluid English and some not. Pretty calm and quiet people at night, but if you try to talk to some of them, they are kind people.
Public transportation gets to La Fortuna from San José or Liberia, but if you want a more comfortable ams faster arrive, you can book a shuttle service (Interbus, Ride CR, Montezuma Expeditions, Desafío Adventure and Gray Line are wonderful companies and most of them have connections all over the country).
There are also, flights landing to El Tanque, which is located 20 minutes away from La Fortuna (Sansa and Nature Air are the local airline companies).
If you are coming from Monteverde and you are not renting s car, the cheapest and easiest way to get to La Fortuna it is booking a Jeep-boat-Jeep through the Arenal Lake (there are several company options in the Internet).
Most of the transportation companies won't drop you off directly to the apartment, because they can do it just at hotel receptions, but Arenal Rabfer Hotel is located just 200mts from the apartment, so you can choose this hotel as drop off place.
One: Don't smoke inside, there is plenty space outside for that.
Second: PURA VIDA!! And enjoy as much as you can :)
Wow! This place was amazing!! I stayed at a few different places in Costa Rica and this was the best deal! The apartment is very modern and is fully furnished (bathroom, full kitchen, a beautiful patio, great air conditioning, etc.). Roy is quick and clear with communication. If you're going to Fortuna/Arenal, I HIGHLY recommend you stay here.
Was a really good location close to town. The house was very clean and the suggestions from Roy about what to do in the arenal area were spot on. Totally loved the experience.
Although we did not meet Roy, he was always very easy to contact by Whatsapp and was very friendly. He was very helpful in planning our trip as he was always happy to give us information about La Fortuna.
The appartment was clean and just as described. The only downside was the wifi which did not always work, but Roy later told us after we left that a quick reboot of the router usually fixes that problem.
Overall my stay there was a pleasant experience. If you are looking for a cheap place to spend the night this appartment will definitely do the job.
The location is fantastic! A casual walk away from the center of town with shops and avenues to activities. Roy is a good host, cordial and provides great info prior to our visit. I would definitely recommend this stay!
El apartamento es muy cómodo, tranquilo y se encuentra completamente amueblado con todo lo que se necesita para pasarla bien y descansar. Además cuenta con facilidades como Internet y CATV. Se encuentra ubicado en el centro de la Fortuna, lo que garantiza el acceso a demás servicios de una manera rápida, sin necesidad de utilizar el vehículo. Pasamos 2 noches muy confortables los cuatro adultos y un niño que lo visitamos. El anfitrión nos dió varias recomendaciones de algunos sitios de la zona, los cuales estuvieron excelentes. Muchas gracias.
We only spent one night at Roy's apartment and wish we'd had more time in La Fortuna. Roy has renting his place down to a science. He's very efficient and makes renting from him very convenient. To top it off he provides you with a document he sends you prior to your trip recommending activities, restaurants, etc. for the area. We planned our time in La Fortuna around his recommendations and we're not disappointed. His place was very clean and nice.
We did not meet Roy upon arrival but check in went as described in directions from Roy. The apartment is great and the neighbourhood felt safe. We walked around at night with no concern. We would definitely recommend the apartment if looking for somewhere to stay in La Fortuna. It is a 5 minute walk from downtown.
