We had an amazing stay at Hotel Ficus. The accommodations were beautiful and the staff was so friendly. Evan made us feel right at home, even started our stay off with a delicious cocktail. We were sad to leave but would definitely stay here again when we come back to Monteverde!

A nice place to stay but a bit of a hike to the center of town. Bring your hiking shoes as it is all up hill back to the hotel...tough to do on a full stomach. Getting hot water on a consistent basis was next to impossible but once the problem was pointed out, it was quickly remedied. They served... More

This is a real find--it is out of the busy & noisy downtown area. The hotel is new, the rooms are enormous, gorgeous bathroom, and a beautiful view of Monteverde area. The included breakfast is delicious--offering made to order eggs/omelets, and a selection of 6-8 hot items, and a line of cold items, including beautiful fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee, tea.... More

Very friendly, clean and accommodating. Due to flight delays, my husband and step-daughter arrived 24 hours after myself and my daughter. Although we paid in advance we got a credit on half our room since they were not there. I wasn't expecting that at all, it was such a kindness after the frustration of flight delays! All the staff spoke... More

Amazing views of the Pacific and walking distance to the cool little town of Santa Elana in Mounteverde. When we checked in we mentioned to Evan at the desk that I had forgotten my laptop at the hotel we had just checked out of - 150 km away. Evan got on the phone without prompting to the other hotel and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a trip around Costa Rica. The place was in the outskirts of Santa Elena - a 5 minute walk to the small town - and a 20 minute walk back, because it is up-hill. The rooms are more like Apartments - they are huge - the bathrooms are huge as well. All is kept... More

We stayed here two nights at the end of December during a Costa Rican tour, and the room was the nicest of the 5 places we stayed. The walk up the hill from the lobby was a bit steep, but the additional view from the top was well worth it. The suite was huge, with a separate entrance and closet... More

This was a perfect venue for our family, the rooms are very reasonably priced. The included breakfast was quite good. It is within walking distance of town. The staff was very helpful in making reservations. We loved it.

The hotel was newly constructed with big rooms and nice balconies with views stretching till Pacific Ocean. The breakfast buffet was very good. Due to the sloping nature of the roads, the location might be a bit hard for elderly people to walk. The hotel had a supermarket and restaurants close to it and the downtown with souvenir shops and... More

Just spent three days in Monte Verde and really enjoyed our stay at the Ficus. The location is relatively new and the rooms are beautiful with lots of wood and a cool modern design. The staff was very helpful in booking tours and the included breakfast was fresh. The only surprise was that the rooms don't have fans or A/C,... More
