          1st off I want to say, I was pleasant surprises by the friendly front desk and their willingness to explain the history this small town. The restaurant next door was just as friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend both places.

          What is the easiest way to get to this hotel from the San Jose airport? Is there an easy way to get a bus? How can we find out bus times? Is there a daily bus to La Fortuna? Or can a shuttle be arranged? Thank you in advance.

          Response from Jesswyn | Reviewed this property |
          We took a public bus from San Jose 'bus station'. It was very cheap - about $6 each. It took about 4.5 hours to the centre of La Fortuna, then we got a taxi to the hotel. That only took about 5 minutes and cost about $5.
