We (family of four) spent three nights at this small hotel. It is clean and affordable with pleasant owners and staff, but rooms are no frills and there is no ambiance. As others have noted, the owners are Costa Ricans who lived a long time in the US. Nidia is pleasant to talk to and will help book tours (zipline,... More

Simply outstanding! Was my favorite spot to stay during my week long trip to Costa Rica. Nidia and her team were welcoming, friendly, and very helpful. The rooms were very clean and spacious with private bathroom. The breakfast each morning was made to order mix of eggs, bacon, rice, beans, fruit, juice and of course coffee. Nice little walk in...

My father and I recently stayed at this hotel after we made the treacherous, scary and life-altering trek up the mountain to Monteverde (via a small Smart Car - don't do this unless you want to reduce your life span and increase your stress levels). However, when we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by the owner (her name... More

My husband and I visited here last year for part of our trip to Costa Rica while on our honeymoon, and just could not wait to get back for more. Well for our second trip to Monteverde in two years, we just came back for a few nights and truly enjoyed ourselves yet again. If you are a true traveller... More

Our family started our trip to Costa Rica at this lovely bed and breakfast near the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Our room was big enough for the family but still cozy, comfortable, and immaculate! The main room and dining area was convenient and lovely. We were walking distance to the little town with plenty of choices for restaurants. However, Nidia and... More

We had a nice room with lots of spaces to lay or hang things. The bed was comfortable and there were extra pillows. Wifi was good in the room. The shower was a good size with plenty of pressure and hot water. An ample breakfast was served in a bright, open area by a friendly and very efficient staff. The... More

We stayed a wonderful two nights in this hotel. It's close to the center of Santa Elena and offers a beautiful view of the surrounding landscape. The breakfast is rejuvenating and delicious and helped us get moving in the morning. There are monkeys that visit the balcony and one of the ladies who runs the hotel let us feed them!... More

Hotel Las Orquideas is a steal for $45/night ($50 if you pay with a card) My boyfriend and I stayed for one night in between our trip from Quepos to Arenal and received a warm welcome from the owner, Lidia. She had great suggestions of places to eat in Santa Elena (her home is about three minutes from the center... More

We spent 3 nights with the gracious Nidia at Las Orquideas. This gem of a hotel is a bit off the main road but an easy walk to the town center where there is a market, pharmacy and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared each morning. Rooms are clean and the area is safe. Talking to Nidia is a... More
