I booked through Expedia and split the room with my mom and brother so it was very affordable. The room was a good size for 3 people and even though it didn't have A/C you really don't need it in Monteverde. My only issue was the level of noise at night. Our room faced the street and you could hear... More

The hotel is nice enough - don't let the photos get your hopes up. They are heavily photoshop'ed and are of the pool area with is really sort of dark. The real kicker was that when my wife went to take a shower, she turned on the hot water and just casually checked it with the toe of her foot.... More

Dear Mr George. Thank you for your review and your concern, I admit, It does make me nervous to think about an accident occurring due to the temperature of the water. Yet, let me tell you the most recurrent complaint is about guests not getting hot water ( not hot enough water ) in their rooms, we had improved our... More

We had a great stay here, much better than expected.(some reviews were not the best) The rooms are lovely, spacious and clean. There is enough storage space and lighting, it's cozy and comfortable. The bathroom is very nice and spacious. There isn't a fridge.....that's the only bad thing. I think we got the best room (room nr. 21) on the... More

This hotel was nothing exceptional, but nothing bad either. The room was nice, open air vents in the room and bathroom. This would have been great, except for the insane winds, which was nothing like I have ever felt in my life. If you didn't force the door shut behind you, it would fly open with 30 plus mph winds....

Hello Mrs/Miss Jocelyn. Thank you for your review. Indeed it does get windy up here specially in December with the north winds blowing very hard. On top of that, we experienced a much stronger windy season due to changing weathers. During those days, even some of the tours and attractions in Monteverde were closed. I´m sorry you did not enjoy... More

The hotel is pretty, clean, and well situated - right next to the "big city" of Santa Elena with all its restaurants (try Morpho's). People in other Monteverde hotels had to get taxis to go up and down the hills into town, and we were right around the corner. It looks like there are no nice hotels in Santa Elena.... More

We spent one night in Poco a Poco during our Costa Rica round trip. When we arrived there we were freezing to the bones because of cold rain and the chilly wind. We immediately jumped into the hot outdoor jacuzzi and that was simply the best possible thing to do at this point of time. Soaking in hot water while... More

My family of 7 stayed here for two nights in late December. Rooms were quite plain for the amount they charged. The rooms were stuffy., no air conditioning and poor lighting. Place was clean however. Bar made good drinks, however drinks were 5,000 Colones and up ( $10.00 US). Pool was nice for the kids to play in and protected... More

Dear Mr Rich, thank you for your review, as our name stands for, we have grown little by little, I wish our rooms were a bit bigger, yet this hasn’t stop us as we have tried to bring, in this 14 years process, as many added values as possible. Perhaps our rooms felt a little crowded as there was 3... More

Great service. All the people is very kind and make you feel like home. Rooms are cozy, with amazing views of the forest. The pool is great. They are very compromised with environment. The only thing they could improve is the menu of the restaurant for dinner (Breakfast was GREAT!!!) THANK YOU!!! Salvador Esteva & Allán Nahum
