This little hidden gem was surprisingly very nice and accommodating. It was very clean and inexpensive compared to other places nearby. The staff was helpful when needed and very quiet because it was off the main road. It was now to far from all the activities, restaurants, and convenience stores. If i had the opportunity to stay in La fortuna in the future i would stay here again. The pool and relaxation area was impressive too.

8/10 Very good

We had a lovely 4-night stay at Aunty’s - in one of the hotel rooms. Laura and the staff there were really welcoming and helpful and the location is beautiful, tucked away at the foot of the volcano, in lush gardens, but within a 10-15min walk from La Fortuna. Uber is well established in the area now and we found that a really easy way to get about. The pools were great and the mini waterfall was great for a warm neck massage! Our ownly criticism was that we had a couple of nights disturbed for an hour or two by dog barking - its not the fault of the property but the surrounding neighbourhood…not an easy one to fix but we had ear plugs so it was fine really. Overall we were very pleased with the stay and would recommend and stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

Had a wonderful stay at Aunty Arenal for our family of 5. Close enough to town/shopping (I'd walk about 1k each morning to the bakery) but far enough to be quiet and away from the throngs. You are a short walk to a coffee tour nearby, and a short drive to the waterfall as well as to the hot springs, activities, and the bustling part of town. From the unit, there is a great view of Arenal when the clouds have moved, the unit is spacious, clean, and sufficient. On site, laundry room, enough comfortable beds, and useful kitchen. The pool was great to cool off in while waiting for the room to be ready, and lots of comfortable hammocks throughout the property. A couple of small wrinkles, not a big deal - our refrigerator was not cold, and the freezer was more of a fridge temperature. There is a shared hot water system so if your shower is cold, give it some time and it will come back. Finally, like much of Costa Rica, be prepared for some rough (dirt) roads and drive carefully. Overall, loved our stay. Already looking forward to the next time!
