We stayed here one night to do the Selvatura zip lining on the way to the beach from Arenal, so we did not spend a whole lot of time here. They were very nice at the reception desk and allowed us to get our room early without the extra fee which was very nice. I thought the rooms were okay.... More

I stayed at the Monteverde Country Lodge which is a sister hotel and was told to come to Poco a Poco to use the pool. It was nice. There was no one at the pool bar and no one came around to offer us drinks. In fact, I didn't see any staff while I was in the pool area with... More

The hotel is well localised, very close to the main village. However, since Monteverde is quite high this place is somewhat cold and very windy. The noise of the wind during the night was quite high! and as a result the room was also a bit cold.

Booked this hotel for 2 nights through Anywhere Costa Rica. Room was adequate, but a little small for our family of 4. Some parts of room well worn (eg. cuts and stains on box spring), but sleep was good/comfortable nevertheless. Breakfast was OK. Pool was nice to cool off in after a day of outdoor activities. Pool has a swim... More

We stayed at Hotel Poco a Poco in August 2014. The location and views are very nice. The walkways and gardens on the hotel grounds were beautiful. The rooms were comfortable, nothing too fancy. We had a huge bathroom and shower to match. The breakfast (included with room) was fine, not a huge variety but it was adequate. Wi-fi worked... More

Dear Mrs, Kmalloy. I´m very sorry I couldn’t meet with you during your stay, we actually talked on the phone the first night, when you told me about the bed situation, I had one of our chambermaids come back to the hotel on a hurry in order to help you with new beds and sheets. To be 100% honest with... More

I was here about 2 weeks ago on my trip with Gate One to Costa Rica. This was by far my favorite hotel during the trip. I love how the hotel is VERY environmentally friendly.

The rooms were very noisy; and initially the pillows smelled of sweat and had to ask it to be changed. It is close to Santa Elena town for what it is worth. But the staff were super friendly. Restaurant not particularly great but then no one goes there for the food!

Hello Duskyman, thank you for your comments. We have to be very careful with humidity in our rooms. Hotels located in Monteverde have to work much more on this situation due to the fact that there is not Air Conditioning in the rooms. When guests visit other parts of the country or other tropical latitudes, they find facilities with A/C,... More

The property itself is average. Our room was spacious with a charming view. We had a lower level corner room by the gardens near the fountain. Our view was great and overlooked the valley and gardens. Internet never really worked. The staff onsite were very friendly. Rather disappointed in the restaurant. Seemed over priced. The breakfast buffet was very limited.... More
