We went to Forest Dreams, a small walk outside the centre. The little walk is worth it. We had good en comfortable rooms and beds, a good bathroom and a good breakfast. Comparing to the price, this was more than we were used to in Costa Rica. The service was also very relaxing and easy. Just go to Chris or... More

When I looked at reviews it was a 4/5 star hotel but it doesn't even deserve 1 star when we booked we saw the room would have a flat screen TV but it had a bulky TV at night the wind go into our room from all the holes in the walls and it was so noisy at night it... More

I feel the need to temper the reviews here a bit. First, let me focus on the positives. The guys that work in reception are super nice and helpful. I would also say that the rooms were perfectly clean and the hotel is a good value. However, I think it’s important that any prospective traveler consider the following: 1. The... More

If you are visiting Monteverde to hike in the numerous reserves this is a great place to stay. If you want a luxury hotel with an inhouse restaurant, bar, swimming pool and exercise equipment you should go elsewhere. I terms of negatives, the walls between rooms are not soundproof. Whoever built this hotel (not current owners) must have used substandard... More

The room was simple, but very clean. The staff was excellent. They let us use their washing machine for free. They arranged all our tours (which I'm sure they got some kickback for) and answered all our questions, no mater how many times we asked the same ones. They make coffee or tea for us in the afternoon upon request.... More

We stayed at this hotel 2 nights and had a great experience. The young men who run the place went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They provided lots of helpful information about the area and places to visit. The rooms are very large and comfortable. A good value. The hotel backs up to a dense fores,t... More

This was really a nice surprise. Excellent service. The breakfast was good in a restaurant where you felt you were in the middle of the forrest. Several restaurants in walking distance. Close to Skytrek and other adventure tours and many different tracks to follow to experience the forrest.

If you want the most authentic Costa Rican experience when you travel to Monteverde, this is the place for you. You are literally on the edge of the cloud forest. You will be awakened in the morning by the hum of the forest. It could be birds one day or monkeys the next or just the wind and the sun.... More

We stayed at Forest Dreams for 5 days just recently. The weather unfortunately was not wonderful however the people at Forest Dreams were wonderful. My wife was sick and they brought her fruit to the room and on another occasion sent up tea and banana cake free of charge and were so concerned for her. We recommend this hotel, the... More

Small hotel with sincere personal help from the 2 owners. We had >8 monkeys visit, right out my doorstep, and they hung around for awhile taking fruit from out hands. I can't stress how nice, and inexpensive the hotel is, and the wildlife was most memorable part of my entire CR trip.
