This is a very, very special place. Host, Jose, is an absolute gem, as were all the staff. His cooking is superb, and his hospitality just perfect. There were so many delightful, thoughtful touches, we cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. Delightful cabins, set in the forest, with stunning views. Great hike in the forest to a waterfall. Beautiful... More

A beautiful spot in the mountains and one of my best diner experiences in Costa Rica! José Alvarez is pura vida, slow cooking and a wonderful host. Rooms are very good, we had a wonderful night and slept like baby's near the waterfall!

If you love the mountain views, this is the place for you. Not only is it located at the top of a beautiful mountain, they have an amazing waterfall (which I could here the water from my room) with various kinds of plants and trees. The rooms are very well decorated and the bathroom has an outside shower! The owner... More

We felt like home from the first minute, taken care of by José and his staff in the best possible way. Fantastic breakfasts and dinners. Our bungalow, embedded in the jungle with a waterfall view, was purely outstanding. Starting up the day in the designed outdoor shower (indoor also, thank you for that), accompanied by hummingbirds, was a new, refreshing... More

Loved our stay here!! The mountains and waterfall and peacefulness were wonderful! Really enjoyed the food. We did chose to eat lite-soup, salad, fish and found these above average. Chef/proprietor is a delight! Room great-clean, modern, air. A bit of walk but husband did fine and he has difficulties in that area.

Beautiful place, delicious food, great service!!! It's been very long since my husband and I had a weekend this relaxing and peaceful. The view from the room was amazing, all surronded by mountains. There is no TV in the rooms so you really can enjoy the quietness of the place. The owner, José, is an amazing person who made us... More

Other reviewers are perfectly correct when they say that this an amazing little retreat, up a long, steep road that never seems to end. The views are terrific and the silence is deafening. There is a waterfall that has a small deck with chairs (and a toilet) where you can relax and watch: you are simply surrounded by nature. The... More

My wife and I spent a couple nights at Hotel Quelitales in July. We loved it, Jose and the staff were more than just polite or helpful, they gave us the feeling we were part of their family. I would return to this property whenever I am in the Cartago/Orosi area.
