Stayed here two nights....breakfast was prepared with so much care in tipical style...the owner Nidia is well travelled and full of great ideas and advice. If I ever find myself in monterverde again I'd stay here to see the friendly faces and the warm dry bed to sleep

Loved it here. Views were spectacular. Owners were so helpful and friendly. Very clean, breakfast was good and plenty of it. Short walk to town. Saw a sloth on the walk one time. Had a private bathroom. Definitely would stay again and recommend it to others. Free internet.

We just finished a two night stay with owners Nidia and Danilo and they made us feel like we were at home. The rooms were comfortable, and although some have complained about noisy walls, we did not experience that. The breakfasts were excellent and we visited a lot with the owners; very friendly and helpful. So, for us, the #1... More

Las Orquideas is north of town, a one minute drive to the Santa Elena commercial triangle. It feels very homey - literally, and their doors are right off the kitchen, common area, or lobby without much of a hallway buffer. It makes for a noisy night - we heard the man next to us snoring- so as others have recommended,... More

Las Orquideas is about an 8 min walk from the centre of Santa Elena, and is a great little B&B. Pros: very affordable (we paid less than $100 for 2 nights), good breakfasts, the woman who runs it is very helpful with arranging tours etc. Cons: walls are thin, so you can hear everything that is going on in the...

This place is more a Bed and Breakfast than a hotel. You are staying in the owners house. With that said I found our room to be very clean and comfortable. The owner, Nidia is very nice and accomodating. She even washed one of my shirts at no charge. She always helped us when we had questions about where to... More

My husband and I stayed at Las Orquideas at the end of August 2014 and we absolutely loved our experience there. We didn't expect it to be as great as it was going off of the really affordable price and looks of the exterior, but it truly was wonderful. From the moment we got there the staff were welcoming and... More

We book Las Orquideas only a day before we went to stay so we weren't absolutely sure as to what it would be like. We instantly felt welcome and had our night walk and activities for the next day booked for us. The room was lovely and clean and was perfect for what we wanted, it was also only a... More
