Clean, spacious room with amazing views. 2 walls were entirely made of glass with outdoor balconies overlooking Gulf of Nicoya. No need for a/c and did not miss having a pool. Staff was very friendly and accomodating, providing tour information and even preparing a bagged breakfast when we had an early morning birding tour. Breakfast was made to order omlets... More

This is a clean rustic hotel that was perfect for what I wanted on this trip. Not a first class "resort" type hotel, but comfortable, clean with amazing views. It's small, so you feel like you know people quickly. This is a hotel that is continuing to upgrade and will be adding more to improve the property. No pool. Front... More

Room excellent with plenty of space and nice atmosphere. Happy with restaurant food although service not brilliant. A few minutes walk into Santa Elena with loads of shops and eating places. Steep climb back to hotel and the room! Nice touch with welcome drinks viewing the sunset. Front desk staff did an excellent job arranging tours and providing information.

Pleasant stay at this hotel on the hill that has a great sunset view. Staff were very friendly and engaging and made sure we got the most of our stay in Monteverde. The shower in the room had no running hot water when we first got there but the staff very quickly took care of that for us. No ACs... More

One is often nervous, booking a hotel online the day before arriving in a busy tourist area like in Santa Elena or Monteverde. We certainly didn't need to be. After braving the (very) rocky road on the way up the mountain, it was a pleasure to enter the Ficus Sunset Suites Hotel, and be treated by two smiling faces. The... More

Currently staying here. First day, had to be moved as staff was washing roof and flooded our room, water running down the walls. Second & third night had scorpions in the bathroom. If you plan on sleeping in, it won't happen, walls are paper thin, the noise starts about 5:30 in the morning. This is the noisiest hotel we have... More

Spacious, clean and comfortable hotel. Good breakfast included. Very nice that it is a short walk to Santa Elena (close town) and restaurants. Our room did not have a long view, but many of the rooms did.

Hotel located at the edge of town on a hillside. Very helpful front desk staff who helped us with carrying luggage to our room. It is a bit of a hike up a small paved road (it was under construction during our visit) to the various blocks of rooms. No pool or garden area to relax around. Room was relatively... More

Good: centrally placed. Recommend visit Orchid Garden nearby. Very helpful receptionist. Clean room. Not so good: no frills - no lunch available, no pool, no fan or AC, no hair dryer. Other staff need training. Would not recommend unless it was half the price

Newer hotel with very spacious suites. Rooms are very clean and modern with high ceilings, large balconies and really comfortable beds. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast included, which was good. We stayed in the higher suite which had a great view and amazing sunsets. Within walking distance from Santa Elena for shopping and food but take a... More
