Amherst, MA

The accommodations are simple and comfortable. If you are looking for amenities such as television, internet access, fancy furniture - this is an eco-lodge and not what you seek. If you're looking for a comfortable bed, bathroom with shower, clean and well-maintained facility, reasonable cost, and a restaurant with good food, this is an option to consider. The restaurant serves...

We stopped here on recommendation from Lonely Planet (without a reservation) and were pleasantly surprised that not only did they have a room, but it was a huge triple for $60 including breakfast! The room was basic, as expected, but clean with a huge bathroom and shower. The grounds are beautiful, the main building where you eat is all open...

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teens stayed at this lodge for 3 nights and enjoyed the experience. The location is great, right at the foot of the volcano, although seeing the volcano depends on your luck (the weather). The lodge has excellent rooms, well spread out in beautifully landscaped garden. I wouldn't call the rooms luxurious but were...

We stayed there one night and it was enough for us. The staff and in specially the girl at the frontdesk ( who also was our waitress) are very lovely and helpful. Because we wanted to hike early in the morning (6 AM), they made us a breakfast packet what was delicious. The view in het garden is spectacular! This...

We were really impressed with Catarata Eco-Lodge. The rooms were basic and very clean. It is a small lodge with a family feel. It is a great jump off location to the area's many sites. You can walk to the La Fortuna Waterfall! The view of the volcano from the pool area is next to none. There is also a...

What a pleasant surprise, this hotel on the Cherro Chato hillside! The beautiful garden makes you feel like you're in another world. The swimming pool is nice, clean and relaxing. Laying in your own hammock outside the room makes you forget the fact that the rooms are actually pretty basic and it's sometimes hard to keep the sheets around the...

This lodge is right outside La Fortuna. It is close enough to La Fortuna that you can easily reach the town (and all the adventure activities that originate there). Price wasn't bad, we paid $207 for a three night stay in a double. This price included breakfast (pancakes or scrambled eggs, + fruit plate), but we skipped it one day...
