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 was very helpful with directions, suggestions on places to eat and things to do. The apartment was smaller than we anticipated. It would be perfect for a couple with two children, but we had four adults and it was very tight. The apartment was very clean and had the basic amenities. The hot water in the shower didn't work well. The breaker kept kicking off and it was cold! All in all, a bit under our expect ions and high on the price for what you get. Roy is a great host and was very good at timely communication.
Hello Brent, I'm terrible sorry about your inconvenient with the apartment. I'll keep Renting it for up to 3 people, so you won't feel too thigt inside. I checked the malfunction of the shower heater and I replaced the breaker.
I highly considering your suggestions in order to improve the place and making it more comfortable.
I really appreciate your suggestions.
While we did not meet Roy in person, he provided excellent information so we could easily find his place, including video directions, and was readily available through texts. His place was clean, convenient, and more spacious than we expected. You can walk to town quickly and park outside the apartment in a very safe spot.
Our stay at Roy's and in La Fortuna overall was great. The house is well equiped and at a walking distance far of the city center. We recommend it!
Roy is a great guy, and he was always ready for anything we needed. He even offer to change our apartment since it was difficutl for a member of our family to use the stairs.
He made us feel very well at the apartment. A great choice in La Fortuna.
The appartment is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood although it is very central in La Fortuna. Roy send us some very good informations about La Fortuna. We did the tour to the Venado Caves - fantastic! The Fortuna Waterfall is also a nice place, and we spent the evening at Baldi Hot Springs. If you buy the ticket in town, you pay 36$ (entrance + delicious dinner) instead of 56$!
Roy was very welcoming and was full of good information about the local sights of interest. The apartment was neat and tidy, but had an odor that we spoke to Roy about. He offered to work on it immediately, but we were not able to arrange for it as we were on the go. The location was central, but it did not have a view to speak of.
Thank you Mary and Tom! The odor is gone, we did a deep cleaning, I think neighbor's cat got inside by the back window, but I`ll leave it closed to never happen again and I am trying to find the cat's owner but I don't use to see cats in the neighbor very often, anyway I am so sorry :(
Roy has been an excellent host, very quick to respond to reservation and all questions before and during our trip. Gave great recommendations on things to do in la Fortuna. His place is very conveniently located and restaurants are five minutes walk away.
Great overall experience.
