This hotel is a beautiful building in a beautiful location - very easy to get to Monteverde forests (we walked). The host is also very friendly, helpful, and had genuine, unbiased advice to help us make the most of our visit. Breakfast was delicious and the host was very accommodating about when we'd prefer to have it. The value is... More

This hotel was great! I went to Monteverde for a mini vacation and to work on my thesis. This was the perfect location for that. The hotel was spotlessly clean and quiet, with a great view of the mountains. It has a really nice log cabin feel and is a little bit outside of Santa Elena so you don't get... More

This was my third trip to Monteverde, as a Quaker I am drawn to this area and to the country because of its rich Quaker history. I like to visit the Friends Meeting, school and community art center and dairy farm that was established by the Quakers over 50 years ago. The Quakers were instrumental in bringing to life the...

Recommended as clean accommodation close to CPI language school. Out in Cerro Plano area 20mins walk from Santa Elena centre but we learned to appreciate the great views and the special feeling of Monteverde area. Variety of charming cafe / restaurants close by. Rooms were spotless, good hot water and enjoyed the large sun room lounge with sunset views over... More

This hotel is located between Monteverde and Santa Elena. Walking distance to everything but you wont get bored since there a lot of things to see on the road. One can take a $2.00 taxi to the town of Santa Elena. I had a private room with bath.Establishment is all wood and made me feel cozy. Free breakfast was wonderful... More

Manager here makes himself available & can arrange many activities. We only spent 3 days end of March, 2014 (not much time to orient ourselves), so a local savvy guide was essential. Bellbird is away from busy center of Santa Elena-- easy in all directions to the various nature preserves. Large deck and lounge are available (ping pond included!) outside... More

What a nice quiet place for a so low rate !! My husband and myself just spent four nights in Monteverde at the BellBird small hotel in Monteverde. Near the little downtown ... but not too close so you don't hear all the noise at night and then, you can sleep well. Alexis, the manager, is a lovely gentleman, always... More

We stayed three nights here during our 3 week trip to Costa Rica. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The building itself is perched atop a hill that allows for amazing sunsets. Not exactly in the heart of town but within walking distance! Breakfast was plenty and delicious! & Alex was such a genuine host. When our shuttle was late... More

We whole-heartedly reccommend Alex and his facility. Amazingly clean and he went above and beyond to make our stay so pleasant. He gave us his time when we arrived and an overview of the area. The entire facility and our room were immaculate. We had an early morning tour to the rainforest and he made a wonderful breakfast before we... More
