    San Bosco was perfect for us. Room was a little small but no big deal. Location, excellent, town was quaint. Location of hotel perfect. Clean friendly staff and breakfast was great. Their association with Volcano lodge and hot springs was a pleasant surprise. Free entrance. We went twice. If you want to stay in La Fortuna San Bosco is the best option. Thanks

    Very well located walking distance to the town, restaurants and shopping. Our room was very clean. The pool and dining area adjacent was lovely. The pool is a good size and very clean. I can’t say enough about the staff at the reception desk. They were super helpful and friendly. We booked a shuttle through the hotel, and when it was running late to pick us up the next day, without me asking, the person at the desk phoned the shuttle company to inquire why it was late. What fabulous service. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    This hotel is a hidden gem. Fantastic staff , helpful and friendly. Great breakfast too. Beds were quite uncomfortable but the price, location and bonus of the thermal pools at the sister hotel make up for it. Definitely would stay again 😊

    Great amenities and huge bonus of hot spring pass

    This was a nice place with good amenities from what we experienced on our trip. They had AC in the room which was important for those that sleep hot as it was warm and humid when we were there in November. The breakfast was very good and the front desk staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Many restaurants, banks and grocery stores were within a 10 minute walk The huge benefit we saw at the hotel was the free passes to the Volcano Lodge hot springs. The hot springs we were originally looking to go to would have been around $80 usd. The passes included with our stay got us into a nice hot springs for no additional cost. We took an Uber on the way to the springs for about $5usd and got a taxi on the way back for around $10 usd This hotel was an excellent value. Definitely would stay again

    Good value for the price. Includes a decent breakfast. Room was a bit small but clean and efficient. Hotel daytime staff was friendly, night time staff could do with some positive hospitality lessons. Short walking distance to town, very centrally located. Best feature was, Bosch has a nicer Hotel, Volcano Lodge. Which hosts a nicer pool and Hot Springs. No additional charges required, but you must have a car or go by taxi. Well worth the trip and no additional fees to gain access. Perfect!

    Costa Rica Gem

    The hotel is steps away from everything in town. The hot springs at Volcano Lodge were so relaxing. Such a great bonus and to get there was only a $5 Uber ride. Daily traditional Costa Rican breakfast was really good, even had pancakes. They also made a to-go meal for me because I missed breakfast due to an early ride for rafting. Daniela and the whole staff went above and beyond for my stay and I highly recommend it to anyone on a budget.
