With good prices, clean rooms, and friendly staff, Cabinas Monte Sol was a great place to stay at. They respectfully accommodated requests for additional sheets and towels and made an effort to make us feel welcomed and appreciated. The whole place has a peaceful and friendly atmosphere and we never had any problems with noise. I realized after leaving that... More

Overall, enjoyed my stay at Cabinas Monte Sol. The reception area was rarely occupied and posted hours were not followed. It was hard to reach the hotel with a question, whether in-person, by telephone, or by email. Booked a room with 2 twin beds and received a room with 1 double. Lastly...wifi is advertised...but the wifi never worked. For an... More

It was a decent place/pretty cool/away from main drag but close to everything. Very Tranquil. Only odd thing was that there was no real consierge, and the woman who was available to help kind of just sat around and the "kitchen" area where they used to serve meals now acts as a second kitchen for the family who owns the...

Cabinas monte sol is not in the middle of the centre from puerto viejo. It is quiet. Although, the owner had two dogs and they start to bark early in the morning. Oud room was basic, which was fine. We don't need anything more luxury. Unfortunately, There was a nasty smell in our room. Not fresh at all. Most of... More

Cabinas Montesol is in the perfect part of Puerto Viejo, a couple minute walk from the center but hidden away from the main road so it's super peaceful and quiet. We were only going to stay 2 nights and ended up staying 3. The showers had lots of hot water and they made our bed and changed our towels everyday.... More

Montesol is located at the end of a small side road just off the of the main street. The location means it's much quieter whilst still being a few minutes walk from the hub of everything. Unfortunately that was just about the only good thing about Montesel, as there was an utter lack of care by the owners throughout my... More

We stayed in the Monte Sol Bungalow for four nights, and it was not easy to leave. The staff was very friendly, the room and bad were bright and clean (hot water shower), and the bed was very confortable and big (there are tow big beds in the bungalow). Every morning we enjoyed cooking our own breakfast and eat on... More

Very clean. Friendly staff, though the... More

We stayed for a night at Monte Sol and arrived pretty late after driving all day from the west coast of Costa Rica. The staff at the desk was super friendly for it being late and the rest of the staff were friendly whenever we saw them. The room was comfortable with screens and a big fan but pretty noisy... More

Stayed at Cabinas Monte Sol for 4 nights in June 2013. We arrived on the Monday, so had a pick of various rooms, following the exodus of Ticos who descend to Puerto Viejo over the weekend to relax. The owners were lovely; a German guy and his charming Costa Rican wife, who were both very accommodating and friendly. We loved... More
