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.
There are only two house rules:
One: Don't smoke inside, there is plenty space outside for that.
Second: PURA VIDA!! And enjoy as much as you can :)
Roy's place was very clean, and while we never met Roy, his communications were excellent. We especially appreciated the video showing the location of his place. This apartment is a short walk to the small city of La Fortuna, but it also has farm animals, including roosters nearby. Charming, but you might consider bringing your earplugs.
Very smooth experience. Roy was always right there whenever we needed him. Answered all our questions and concerns. Amazing advice for what to do in the area. Overall a great few nights in la Fortuna.
We only stayed here 1 night and loved the location! Roy was very quick to respond and sent us great information on recommended things to do and where to eat!
I reserved Roy's apartment for two nights but wasn't able to stay there because my travel plans changed. Roy refunded one night and my travel companion stayed there the other night. Though she was late on the check out (due to bad communication between us), Roy was super nice about it. He always got back to me quickly when I messaged him.
After getting GPS location from Roy, his apartment was easy to find. He was there to greet is then left is to our own demise. Tight quarters but adequate with well equipt kitchen. Easy walk to village, wiFi was ok. I would definitely stay again.
Roy is a very responsive host and checked to make sure we had what we needed. When the shower heater unit did not work he made a point of coming and fixing it as soon as he could. There are adjoining apartments, but it was quiet overall. Conveniently close to town. A simple place, well-kept and clean; there was adequate cooking ware for a few days stay, and a good refrigerator. All the potted plants around the unit, the patio, and even in the shower, were a nice feature!
Enjoyed our stay, nice that it was in a quiet location & just a short walk from town. Great restaurants near by. The place provided all the amenities that we needed. Even though we never met Roy…he gave us a detailed report of places to eat and things to do in the area.
Thanks so much Roy!
