This is a quaint hotel. Clean and staff was very helpful and nice. Loved the sloths just outside the hotel. Courtyard was beautiful and enjoyed the wildlife. Would definitely stay here again. Walking distance to town, just a couple of blocks and plenty of shopping and restaurants.

Secreto La Fortuna is a secret worth sharing!
This is a very nice property. Don't be fooled by this being in the middle of town. I am so glad we picked to stay there. They create a very peaceful, beautiful atmosphere in which you would not know you are right in town, but then you are just minutes from everything. Very easy walk to food, beverages, shopping, massage, and several local activities.

Great staff
The staff was amazing. We left our binoculars at our prior hotel and they helped us get them back. They have a bird feeder in their lovely garden that a wide variety of birds visited daily. The staff, both the young woman and man who alternated work days were quick to point out both a two-toed sloth and three-toed sloth that lived in the trees outside the gate. They helped arrange transportation and over all they were great.
