La Fortuna Suites is a small B&B operation that is conveniently located to several sights, like La Fortuna Waterfall and the famous hot springs. Ian is a friendly manager who greeted us with smoothies, a map of the town, and made us breakfast in the morning.
There was an unfortunate incident where the room flooded while we there, and our belongings and valuables got soaked, but it was resolved later in the day. When reading other guest's reviews, it seemed like Ian was very paramount in helping plan their trips, but in my experience with him he seemed more hands-off, though we expressed interest in his advice.
Unser Aufenthalt in Fortuna Suites hat uns sehr gefallen. Fortuna Suites ist sehr zentral gelegen und ist trotzdem sehr ruhig. Das Frühstück von Ian war super!
My 2 boys (17 &14) and I had a great time at La Fortuna Suites. Ian was friendly, generous, and accommodating. The rooms we stayed in were clean and comfortable and we were able to walk anywhere in La Fortuna from where it is located. Breakfast on the upstairs deck was a great start to the day!
This was the perfect place to stay to stay in La Fortuna. I cannot say enough wonderful things about La Fortuna Suites and our host, Ian. The place itself is wonderful, it's a very cute/cozy place, well kept, clean, comfortable, and there was Netflix too! Our host, Ian, was the best airbnb host I have ever come across. He was extremely kind, available, and went above and beyond to make our stay as wonderful as possible. And he makes the best breakfast/smoothies ever. In addition, the location was great, easy to accomplish everything we wanted to and walk to everything in town. I highly recommend staying here, highlight of our trip.
We really enjoyed staying at La Fortuna Suites. Ian was very accommodating. We were double booked and he put us up in an economy room for free for a couple nights to make up for it. Though this room was nothing to write home about, it was clean and comfortable. After 2 nights, we were able to move to the suite which was quite nice. Ian cooked us breakfast everyday and had an easy going personality. If we find ourselves in La Fortuna again, we will definitely stay here.
Ian was a great host. We stayed a couple nights and truly enjoyed our experience there. He was friendly, welcoming, and best of all makes a killer breakfast in the morning. I would highly recommend staying here if visiting the LaFortuna area.
This location is as good as advertised! It is a short walk from all of the shops and restaurants that La Fortuna has to offer. Ian was very friendly; he was extremely knowledgeable and helpful about the locations and activities in the area. It is very easy to get along with Ian and he makes a pretty good breakfast to get you through the day. He offered us a couple flashlights for our late night visit to the hot springs and we were even treated to some fruity popsicles on a hot day! Would absolutely stay here on a return trip.

About the Host, Ian
La Fortuna Suites is owned and operated by the Aspinall Henry family, Costa Rican-Canadians with additional ties to California. Our history in Arenal began when my great-grandfather came to the area in the 1970’s, to initiate the project which built the large earth-fill dam across the Arenal River, to produce hydroelectric power on behalf of ICE, the government run electricity provider.
During the late 1980’s my father, John Aspinall, one of the pioneers in tourism in Costa Rica, began promoting this area and bringing tourists to experience the wonders of the active volcano, as well as the amazing beauty that abounds here.
Having recently returned to my home country, I am excited to be at La Fortuna Suites, where I can share with others my passion for nature, adventure, and the great beauty of the central valley.
We're located in the town of La Fortuna. A 2 min walk from the church in the center of town. & 5 min from the bus station. There are lots of great hostels and budget conscious places to stay in La Fortuna, but most of the nicer places are far away from town. You're stuck out there once you're at your hotel. La Fortuna Suites is for the traveler that wants access to the city, & wants to come back to a space that reminds them of home.
There are tons of things to do near by: white water rafting, zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, rappelling, hot spring spas etc. In fact, the Arenal/ La Fortuna area is known as the "Adventure capital of the world!" After a day of adventure, relax & watch a movie on Netflix on a 40" screen. you can even make a snack in your own private kitchenette. Or, get something delivered from one of the restaurants near by. Enjoy the afternoon, taking in views of the Arenal Volcano, & having a drink on our spacious deck. At the end of the day, you'll sleep better than anyone in Costa Rica on a Memory foam mattress imported from the U.S., & 400 thread count Egyptian cotton linens. We also serve a complimentary breakfast each morning, & can book any tours you have interest in.
A little abut the building: It was an apartment building with a bad reputation in a nice part of town. We bought it, put in 8 months, & a lot of dollars in renovations. It's worlds away from what it looked like we first saw it! Check out the progression on that other site. The face & book thing, that's not this site. (Airbnb will not allow me to type the name).
