My daughter and I spent 2 nights here. After the scary trip up the mountain we found paradise. We toured the cheese factory, orchid, and butterfly reserve. But best of all were the hanging bridges. Can't believe that I made the entire walk. The hotel 's complimentary breakfast was unbelievable.

We spent 2 nights at this hotel in Monteverde. It is within walking distance of the marvellous Curi Cancha Reserve and has itself an interesting patch of forest with walking tracks. The rooms are basic but clean and the grounds very open and pleasant. While there are cafes/restaurants nearby those open in the evenings during this time of year are... More

Located just a few meters outside of the center of Monteverde behind the Trimonte Restaurant . It is owned by a longtime Monteverde family. The rooms are without television and wifi is available in the dining area. The real advantage is that it is surrounded by secondary forest and there is great bird life to be seen from your front...

I was excited to stay at El Bosque due to its beautiful grounds and location close to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, but I was quite disappointed. The grounds were lovely, however despite the fact that we were only two of the four total guests staying there, they placed us in a room inconveniently located far away from the restaurant... More

I truly loved this hotel. It is tucked back in the woods, and all of the rooms are in a circle around a common area. The food was fantastic! And, they just completed building the eating area. The wifi was strong in the restaurant. There is a German bakery at the end of the road, which is walkable. My only... More

Hotel El Bosque is tucked into the woods, on property with wonderful walking trails, yet it's just 3 minute walk up the driveway to the "Monteverde center," a small set of 2 restaurants, one bakery, one grocery, one women's cooperative. So great for people without car who want to be able to walk to variety of food options. Much better... More

Accommodating and friendly, El Bosque was where my mother, my wife, my dog and myself stayed on an overnight recently. They do not accept pets as rule but made an exception for us after talking to me about the dog's general manner. He's a guard dog but well behaved. The property was lovely, walking distance from town if you are... More

Hotel El Bosque is located in Monteverde, just off the main road. It is close to several restaurants, but is tucked back off the road, so it is quiet and gives you the experience of being in the forest. There are a number of trails on the property that are good for birding, walking or jogging. I did all three.... More

We were not expecting to like this place, but fell in love with it. The rooms are clean, the staff is helpful, and you are in the forest. Our kids want to come back to this hotel over the other more expensive placed that we stayed at.
