We had a great time in cabinas Capulin. The room was comfortable, with a lovely view. The room was basic but absolutely fine. Everything was clean. The lady at the reception (unfortunately i forget her name) was very very kind. She explained us everything about some tours en restaurants. She recommend her favorite places. In this area there are a... More

Farm outside Saint Helen on the trail to the Canopy Park, to the right handside going up (it took us 40mins To find it). Several cabins by the trees, beautifully designed with Glass door terraces overlooking the rain forest. ours was by a fruit tree and white face monkeys visited at night. Breakfast in the main cabin with nice conversation... More

We booked a cabin but got the house. So 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for a family of 5 is quite luxurious. The owners are very kind and help you on booking your trips. There's a nice trail going through the forest, you must definitely walk that trail if you have a spare hour. It's a bit out of Santa... More

I was here for a few days with a group of ~20 people for a university class; over the week-long time we were in Costa Rica, this was my favorite place to stay. Beautiful view, lots of wildlife (hummingbirds, toucans, motmots, etc.!), comfortable lodgings, great food, and knowledgeable & friendly staff. The hammocks are so comfortable! The wifi didn't work... More

This was one of the best place that we stayed in during our 15 days in CostaRica. Fantastic views from the room. Feels like a log cabin in the mountains. However to stay in this place it is better to have a car as it is a little away from the town. There is a nice hike within this property.... More

Booked really late for this leg of Costa Rica holiday, all my first choices are gone and fully booked, and I wanted to stay near the Monteverde Cloud Forest, so I ended up with this place. It is owed by a family, and the service is welcoming. However, the place really in need of some renovation and upgrade. While it... More

A few days ago we finished a three-night stay in cabin 5. We enjoyed our stay mostly because of the nice people working there. In particular, Anibal and Roy were very helpful and also the two ladies who served us nice breakfasts. The cabins are quite rustic and sparsely furnished. We encountered a few "cottage like quirks" but overall had... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Cabinas Capulin in Monteverde. We were in cabin 3 and have 2 young kids and it was perfect for us! The kitchen is great, nice and big, and the ceilings in the cabin are very high and make it feel quite large. We made eggs and toast and fruit every morning and dinner a... More

Maybe as they say you shouldn't have high expectations or you might be disappointed. Let me share the positives though. The location was perfect. It was fun to see the beautiful hummingbirds and white-faced contis as our neighbors. We had a three hour incredible rainbow every morning! That was fantastic!!! The breakfasts were great and the cook went out of... More

We paid $65/night mid-week. Very reasonable for the area. Near town location, but more than a short walk to all but one restaurant. We were surprised at the size of Santa Elena / Monteverde. There are plenty of restaurants, two super markets, banks, gas station, etc. If you don't have a car it might be a bit difficult. Most attractions... More
