We rented 3 units, 3 couples with 6 childrens. The units were spotless, nice designs, well located, quiet, convenient. We really appreciated our stay and the security with a guard patrolling the property during the night. We recommend Arco Iris Lodge without hesitation.

We've been traveling in cr for 6 weeks, this has been our favorite hotel. We are in a detached, 2 bedroom house, so there is room for us to spread out. Plus, there is a kitchenette where I've been able to prepare some meals. Service and staff have been very attentive. The name of the house was Susanna's house. The... More

My bride and I had a great time in the honeymoon suite of this wonderful European lodge. The accommodations were wonderful and we had a beautiful hilltop vista of the rest of the area. The only drawback was that some of the late night revelers in town kept us up late Friday night with their partying. It seems sound travels... More

There are a lot of places to stay in the Monteverde/Santa Elena area but I would definitely recommend this one! I stayed here with my parents, and we had a small room with two bunk beds but it worked out perfectly. It is in a beautiful location and the included breakfast was AMAZING. A great way to start off a... More

This was the first place we stayed in Costa Rica while on our honeymoon and it blew us away. We arrived after an extremely long days travel and were quite grumpy and tired as the drive up is very intense and quite a thrill, especially after the long flight. It is hours on a very bumpy unimproved dirt road with... More

This is a little gem very close to the center of Santa Elena, built on a hillside. Very short walk to town center. Be prepared, this is not a flat city - you either go up or down, rarely level! Staff is very attentive and happy to book tours with no commission that many places add in. We were able... More

The service was outstanding, they even rushed to wash our clothes after we got caught in the rain while zip lining. We stayed in the budget rooms which were simple but very clean. This hotel is a very good value for money and has an excellent location. The hotel is located right in the center of town, but sits on... More

We only spent one night here, but the room was spotless. The staff was helpful scheduling our canopy tour, and they gladly cancelled it and refunded us when a thunderstorm came along. Their breakfast was a highlight of our trip!

Lush, quiet grounds that belie the hotel's setting in the middle of Santa Elena. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and architecturally interesting. Food is good. Service is excellent. They will book any tour you wish.

We stayed for 3 nights in a standard room. The room was clean and comfortable. And our bathroom here had the best shower of the trip! This hotel also had the best breakfast -- it's not included, but it's fantastic, definitely worth $7.50! The staff was very helpful with making and confirming various reservations for us, advising on options/things to... More
