We stayed at Hotel Don Taco in a superior double room which was clean and serviced every day. We had a great hot water shower but it would be nice to have hot water in the wash bowl especially for cold mornings. There was a large fridge and a lovely glass interior balcony for watching the wind and the rain... More

Maybe it was the weather we had but I found the upper floor rooms so noisy to sleep in! It was very windy but sounded so much louder in the upper rooms. The breakfast was okay just eggs rice and that horrible sweet kind of bread. It is also up a hill from the town so if you have any... More

This was a lovely value-type place to stay, not a luxury place, but clean and comfortable. We were lucky enough to be in a room opening to the long balcony that ran the length of the upper floor, and served as a sitting room we could share with our family in adjoining rooms, with lovely view. Tiled floors were pretty... More

Stayed two nights and felt very welcomed. The room was clean and comfortable and whenever we had a desire or a question the staff responded immediately, efficiently, and with genuine pleasantness. Definitely recommend this place.

This is a fantastic little place with awesome views overlooking the Monteverde from your room. While we were there we felt we were living in the Cloud Forest as the clouds came down around us, then cleared to show the fantastic views.

I recently stayed at the Don Taco for almost 2 weeks. The staff treated me like I was part of the family. Great breakfast. Loved the balconies. Not a lot of hot water in the morning, but that just helped me wake up.

My wife and I meant to stay one night, but wound up staying a extra day. The place is a few blocks uphill from the town proper, wich gets you out of the noise and diesel exhaust. It offers stunning views. We had a cabina (#14) well away from the road, with a glass-enclosed balcony and a 180 degree view.... More

While visiting the cloud forest of Monte Verde, Costa Rica, my family and I stayed in two cabins at the Hotel Don Taco in St. Elena, Costa Rica. It is a safe, friendly, decent facility that is extremely affordable, provides a wonderful home-cooked breakfast each morning, has an excellent and friendly staff and beautiful views. While I agree with many... More

A lot has already been said: Nice staff, clean rooms and cabins, we very much enjoyed the cabinas-feeling. Location is great since it is only five minutes from the center. However the cabins need some renovation and new mattresses would be great. Breakfast was nothing special. But for the price we paid it was fine.
