this was our introduction to Costa Rica. Wonderful, beautiful place with an excellent staff who will help arrange tours, taxis, recommend places to eat etc. The grounds are beautiful with lots of great birds. We liked being able to walk to many places in town. It is only a block or two from the heart of town but feels out... More

This was a great place to stay in the Monteverde area. The hotel grounds were very pretty with fruit trees, lounge chairs, swings, etc. We stayed in room that had a loft where the second bed was and a large balcony that was a nice place to relax. The room was a little small but that was not an issue... More

My wife, two friends and I just spent two nights at this family run hotel and absolutely loved the place, in particular the very scenic location on a hill overlooking the entire Monteverde area. We appreciated the comfortable wooden bungalows and the healthy breakfast featuring natural fruit juices, home grown vegetables and seasonal fruits, home made bread and cakes (a... More

This is a lovely place with beautiful gardens but still in the town of Santa Elena. We had room 11 that I would highly recommend. This room is up a few steps but worth it for the view and the tranquility. Breakfast was extra but very good. The lodge is up a steep hill from the town but is only... More

Not only was this place beautiful, but it was also exceptionally peaceful…other than an occasional dog barking. The bungalows were clean, nicely appointed, comfortable in a rustic sort of way. I would definitely go back. I booked it through Gecko Trail Adventures.

One of the best places I stayed at in CR - mainly for the very helpful staff who worked there - set us up very quickly and efficiently - A ++ Beautiful scenery and the rooms were made of gorgeous wood! Although Monteverdi is very windy we still had a lovely time! Thanks again!

This b&b is made up of several building placed around lovely gardens on a hillside right in the center of Santa Elena. It's a five-minute walk to the commercial center. They serve a great, healthy, varied buffet breakfast, with freshly prepared eggs if you desire. But that breakfast does cost a bit extra. The people working reception are helpful and... More

Located in the busy centre of Santa Elena Arco Iris´s cabins are scattered in a beautiful garden- quiet and peaceful just 50m away from the crowds. Although that close to restaurants and shopping malls you feel like in another world. We had booked a superior room, but the only difference to a standard room seems to be a second floor-... More

The only place I can imagine staying in the MonteVerde area is Arco Iris Lodge.. Private cabins, comfortable and clean, a great breakfast to start your day, centrally located to dining and shopping and the most accommodating staff you could ask for.. Most tours pick up in the Arco Iris Lodge parking lot.. Getting to and from the lodge is... More
