Nicely situated hotel in impressive mountain village. Rooms are beautiful. We had two huge beds. In the bathroom there was a bubble bath. They serve a good breakfast. Advice about possibilities was very complete. Wifi working. A hotel to come back.

We stayed here for two nights and were very happy with the stay. The staff were friendly and helpful in booking tours and finding us alternative transportation when we missed our pre arranged shuttle. They also have good recommendations for tours - go to El Trapiche (coffee/sugar came plantation)!! The breakfast was great and the morning walk through the gardens... More

We stayed 2 nights here. Beautiful grounds. Made of wood rooms was so rustic. A couple of issues, the people who own this small BB hotel speak Spanish and little English. Restaurant is only open for breakfast, must walk into town to get food other times. Close walking to most things. I would stay again.

Its a very beautiful hotel made of wood with spacious, clean rooms and nice large bathroom and amazing garden. 3 mins walk from the "center" of the village. I only stayed one night in the low season -there were only 4 more guests in the hotel and they are were clearly heard through the wood floors and walls -this may... More

This hotel is on the outskirts of Santa Elena. It consists of two parts, the main house (where our room was located), and a second house with the more spacier rooms. The whole area is a converted ranch with a nice garden. The main house (and the rooms as well) has a nice styling, with a lot of wood being... More

I got the deluxe room which provided us with 2 queen beds, including sheer curtains surrouning the bed so we felt like princesses. The bathroom was spacious with a lovely large shower and high ceilings and skylights. The surrounding garden is beautiful - like their own private butterfly garden. While wifi anf TV connection aren't great, this is a great... More

This hotel is dated, not very clean, the staff are apathetic and unhelpful. the breakfast was disgusting and there were flies everywhere. Our room even leaked water from the rain! Avoid this hotel at all costs!!

I am surprised about the bad reviews... we had a good experience, and actually loved the shower there. No issues with hot water. I think you have to go in with the right expectations. This is not a luxury hotel. Boutique, I think, in this case is meant to mean canopy beds and lovely chalets. We had no tv and... More

This was the most disappointing hotel of our 15 day vacation in Costa Rica. Our room was located in a building at the rear of the property. It was large but dark and gloomy with several lights not working. There was one bedside light and one candle in a wine bottle! I am not joking! There was an old TV... More

We may have had one of the worst rooms, and have US standards, but our room was very cramped with no heat or air conditioning. The "town" was about 1/2 mile away on a very rough dirt road. The grounds were very nice and breakfast typical, but even by the Costa Rica standards, an inferior experience.
