Less than a 5 minute walk into town so perfect location - away from noise and super busy hostels for a good environment. Free breakfast, 2 full kitchens, 5 computers for internet, 3+ bathrooms so never really had to wait, lots of hang out space, lockers, tv. The view was amazing - really got to see what makes it a...

Vista al Golfo was a pretty great place to stay. Although it was a bit out of town that made it much quieter at night, and it took all of about 5 minutes to get into town. We had a provate bathroom and our room had a fridge as well. There is a communal kitchen and the hotel provides food... More

Vistas Al Golfo, on the mountainside overlooking Santa Elena, is a gem! Perfect for backpackers, and yet enjoyable for the economy-minded (but not backpacking) traveler as well. This was our first experience with a community kitchen, and it worked out beautifully. Part of the beauty was the view from the huge windows on 3 sides of the kitchen. All of... More

My wife, son and I stayed here during Christmas break 2010. Santa Elena is about a mile above sea level so the town and surroundings can be a little chilly at this time of year. The hotel had very large, spacious rooms complete with fridge, stove, sink, dishesa and cutlery - everything you needed to prepare breakfast or make a... More

Had a great stay here. Loved our room and the view from our big picture window (worth the extra $5). Helpful staff and you can book all your tours from there. Good 'make your own breakfast' supplies. We did the Extremo canopy tour, which was great - catering for pure adrenalin, which is what we wanted...and what we got. Also... More

Jorge the owner and his son Diego really make this place. They are extremely friendly and helpful and can help arrange anything you want to do in the Monteverde area. Our room was in what appeared to be the newer section of the complex and was spacious and clean, had a small bathroom with HOT water (a rarity in costa... More
