I'm a vegetarian so when I travel, finding the right food can be an issue. I found this place online run by a local family living in town. So when I went to Costa Rica which has always been on my list of go to places, I gave it a try and am glad I did. The owners Barry and Sylvia made sure I never felt like a tourist. I got a nice, clean room which actually had a view of a volcano off the balcony. They have a little vegetarian cafe right there on the property and prepared plenty of food along with fresh juices and smoothies. I didn't need to worry about a thing. Costa Rica is really beautiful and there are tours for everything. Barry made arrangements for me he is really knowledgable and am sure he saved me some money. Thanks to both my hosts I had a great time. Alanna K

Very eclectic place, with murals on the walls and cat themes around the hotel. our room have a direct view of the Volano Arenal. We were able to walk to the ack in La Foruna, just a few blocks away. The owners were very nice and helped us get so great tours at a good price. The Food was superb and the juice and coffee drinks were the best. Had a great stay there. Highly recomend it.

An easy place to relax, enjoy good food and get to know some local people

We've traveled quite a bit in the past and when we get the time now we like to get off the beaten path and enjoy some time with local people. We stayed right in the town of La Fortuna at a little B&B called los tres gatos with the volcano a few blocks away. Our hosts Barry and Sylvia were fun to be with and made us feel right at home. They prepared plenty of food in their own cafe which was suprisingly good. There's plenty to do, and for us the natural springs were a hilight. Our room was a bit smaller than expected but clean and tasteful. A place that could maybe use an upgrade here or there but not enough to take away from the experience. All in all a great stay

great food, great location in town

The three cats had a unique flavor, with a cat theme, and a cool coffee bar right there, where we got to know the owners who gave us great advice on where to go for tours. Are room was not real ancy, but it did the trick for us for a good nights sleep. The food and drinks were excellent, we hated to leave. Thanks, Bob and Cindy

what a unique place, would go back for sure....

My wife and I had the greatest time eating Vegetarian food, and exploring the town of La Fortuna, where the Tres Gatos was located. right in the center of Town. Besides from the great location, The room had a Volcano View from the balcony in front of our room, and you could Bird watch from the back balcony, that was cool. The room also hade original art work by the owner Silvia. Her and Barry showed us around, and took us to a Hot springs in the afternoon. I can not wait to get back, The food was very good, all you wanted, and fresh juices too. We got a real value, because we did not have to go any where to eat, that saved a lot of time and money. Thanks. we loved it
