I have stayed there one night, the room was close to the kitchen and was very noisy from 6:00 am in the morning... Jose and Andres was not so pleased to know that I book some trips around thru other travel agency, and they didn't spare me their unpleasantness... Definitely not one of the best experiences I had in Costa... More

We booked Tina's but got a room in Atardecer which is of the same owners. The room was only little larger than a double bed. There is enough space outside to allow you to read and have a drink so that compensated a bit for the disappointing room. The breakfast was nice and the service by Jose superb. It actually... More

Tina's Casitas is a lovely little spot off the main road. The rooms were tidy and nicely decorated. The breakfast was good. The best thing was the owner Jose (I hope I have this right). He was amazingly helpful, making phone calls for my husband and I and booking our bus to get to the other side of the country.... More

Tinas Casitas was a very nice place to stay. The breakfast is amazing and the staff is in general very helpful and nice and the place is very reasonable priced. But the best of all was José. the receptionist. He was always happy like us and very helpful, when for an example one couldnt close the window in the room.... More

Satellite Tv in room and good wifi. The hostel is a 10 minute safe and pleasent walk to town - we saw 2 sloths on the way. The staff are... More

The casitas are on a hill, and directly in the line of fire if the wind is blowing. We could have used more blankets, and the pillows were like rocks. Too cold to shower in water that just didn't heat up!

The staff was absolutely fabulous. I visited Monteverde in early January 2012. It was so windy and cold (so bring layers if you are traveling around that time). We arrived on the jeep boat jeep from Arenal. The driver didn't quite know where we were going because there is another place in town called Camino Verde (which is what Tina's... More

Pros: - Friendly and helpful owners with good english - They will help you with tours (though the prices for the tours appear to be the same as anywhere else) - Cheap - around $65 a night... More
