It's a short drive from San Jose, so it's easy to get to. Just follow the signs. Entrance is curvy and steep, not for amateur drivers. Parking space is limited so we had to use the basketball court. They have a pretty busy and loud bar weekend nights so if you're looking for some quiet time might not be your... More

I try not to write bad reviews so I will start with the 1 good thing. They have a bar/restaurant and the food was good and very fancy. There menu is only in Spanish. OK so here it goes, I booked this on hotels.com and it was not where they said it was (not even close). I booked 2 rooms... More

I have read all the other reviews and although I must say there is room for improvement at reception and customer service, it could be a bit more professional, however they were really nice. The place is beautiful, I loved the whole place and my room was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and you can actually repeat as... More

Rooms are dark. Shower is dark and dirty, sheets were dirty and smells so bad. Food was not that good. The owner was very nice and helpful, has activity to do in the hotel. The tree house was the best rooms, but very expensive. if you don't take it do not book room there.

As soon as we got to our suite we learned that the fan/light above the bed didn't work. We weren't even offered another room. The lighting in here sucks all together. my husband and I went in the jacuzzi which was decent. Although there was a weird smell. I dont know if it's the water or what. The same smell... More

As we are constantly trying to improve our hotel, we do occasionally see things that need improvement and we thank you for bringing this to our attention. This goes for our food and beverages as well as towels etc. The typical costa rican taste for coffee is typically less strong then is expected by western oriented people, hence the coffee... More

We reserved this for a birthday with 10 family members, so we reserved Jacuzzi # 3, expecting it to be some sort of open place with a Jacuzzi, wrong..... well, Jacuzzi was there, but there was just enough room for 5 chairs or so, it looked more like an intervention than a family reunion. Also we brought our own food,... More

We are sorry for your less then positive experience. We are a family and couples oriented hotel and we are constantly trying to improve our quality of service and meet the expectation of our customers, however the customers expectation and what we strive to build sometimes have overlapping conflicts. We have strict rules about food, because Costa Rican families generally... More

Is a great place to visit if you are looking for a retreat from the city live stile, without having to drive a long distancen. Excellent service right from the time that we arrived, I had a blast on the canopy ride, the food at the... More

We wanted a place not in the busy center of San Jose, but not to far away either. We went to monte campana on advice of a friend, it's a rustic place in the mountains nearby the cities, meaning it's doesn't have room-service, but it has a nice bar, a good pool and some other attractions we did, I must...

We went as a group of 7, mostly seniors over 50. Their website is a farce. Our "villa" was dirty, with a gross kitchenette, ripped sheets in one of the beds..the bathroom sink was rusty and also dirty. We understand when a place is simple and humble, but dirty, it isn't acceptable. It is a shame that such a beautiful,... More
