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.

The neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Small private complex located within walking distance from La Fortuna city center (5 minutes). Lots of shops, restaurants, grocery stores near Roy's place. Taxi stand and tour operator offices are conveniently located as well. Rafaela was always around to help as needed. Roy does an excellent job of providing accurate and detailed information on his place and all of the activities available in the area. We recommend staying at Roy's.

Everything was great! We did not get to meet Roy personally, but the communication beforehand was great and the check-in and everything worked out perfectly. The location is good, you can reach the city center easily - it is about 300m to walk. Very professional, very clean and organized! Great value for money!

Roy's place is very convenient for a short stay in La Fortuna. Easy walking distance to town, in a residential neighbourhood.

Roy was very quick to respond to us. We landed in Costa Rica with no agenda or a place to stay. We contracted him and he responded within a few min. The apt has air conditioning ( which was a blessing) and is in a perfect location to the town. He's about 2-3 blocks to a market and very close to restaurants. We were able to walk everywhere around town and felt very safe. He attached some sights to see and things to do with his check in documents. All though some of the prices were not accurate, we appreciated some inside scoop. We would absolute stay here again, should we come back.

Hola! I'm Roy I was born and raised in this beautiful country COSTA RICA!!
Briefly I would say that I'm a passionate nature lover who had the opportunity to work in the tourism industry and that gave me the chance to travel all over the country.
I studied Business Administration and currently I'm in charge of 8 different apartments, all of them located in La Fortuna town and all of them rented 100% to Airbnb travelers. I started couple years ago with my apartment when I was working for a hotel and now it turned into a pretty small family business since some of the options also belongs to my parents and brothers (but so far I'm the only one who speak English).
Recently, I was cancer diagnosed, as you can imagine, it was a hard period but with the help of my family, boyfriend and friends I'm recovered and with new positive energy.
I always try to give the best in order to reach your satisfaction and expectations, it's been the key all over this years and now that I'm healthy, my goal is to become a Super Host.
I hope to keep doing things better and if you decide to stay in one of my apartments, my commitment will be to offer the best Costarican experience.
I hope to keep making good friends from all over the world, everybody without exception is welcome :)

Feel free to ask me anything you need to know.

Warm regards,
Your host... Roy Jiménez :)
