Smithfield, Virginia
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

My wife and I stayed here one night as part of a touring group. We found the room and bed to be comfortable. Although there was a small patio outside our room, the view was poor as renovations had not been completed. We spent a little time in the gardens and enjoyed bird sightings. Staff was terrific.

Location. Staff. Breakfast. Perfection. Next time I'm in la fortuna this is where I'll stay. I have no complains whatsoever. It's perfectly located next to the best places to eat and not far from the center. Everyone as always nice and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and different every morning. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

A spacious well-appointed room with a small balcony and a splendid view of the volcano. The gardens were lovely with frequent sightings of humming birds. A good size pool, but very few sunbeds. A bit more attention required in the pool area. Food plates and glasses left by previous guests still there in the morning from the previous day! Pool...

Hotel was super clean and spacious. The bathroom was really nice - shower was awesome! Not much storage space - you will be living out of your suitcase. NOT a good view, but wasn't in the room for very long. Pool is really nice and the jacuzzis are great. Staff was super nice!!!! Food at the restaurant was really good.

We visited for four days. We had easy access to the adventure outings and just a $3 - $5 cab ride to town. Staff was also very helpful. This is not a spa, though. Nice pool and grounds but not a place where you would spend a whole day just hanging out.

The place is mostly tired and in need of updating. They have added some new rooms that are in the process of completing. We stayed in the older part. Restaurant very plain. However, their hidden asset is the staff that is very friendly and nice. We needed help a couple of times and the response was quick and effective. While...
