This was a nice enough place. Not what we were used to by the other hotels we had stayed in. This was in town and on a Main Street. The staff was really nice and we really enjoyed all our meals there and at night a really good young man who was a wonderful singer. The waiter we had was... More

Hotel is located near a market and good restaurants and is an easy walk into the small town. Their breakfast was included and made to order. There are various choices and they were all good and came quickly. We had dinner one night and it was tasty too (fish in ginger sauce & my friend had a pasta). We had... More

Our family of four had one of the "quieter rooms." The view of Monteverde is beautiful as is the location. The cleanliness of our room, however, left much to be desired. Upon checking into the room, it was quite obvious the sheets on both beds were not clean. Please don't ask. We had ALOT of explaining to do to our... More

The front desk staff here is beyond amazing. They are the heart of the hotel. We arrived a day early (I messed up my reservation date!) and they fixed it right away for me with a smile on their face. They helped me book excursions horseback riding which was fabulous as well as the night hike was equally enjoyable. They... More

We stayed on through a Gate 1 promotions tour. The location is close to many things and it was about a 10-15 minutes drive from the area where the the reserves are. I fully support the mission of them being ecofriendly. Our room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. They had a large DVD collection which was nice... More

This is the nicest place you can get in Monteverde for a reasonable price. My boyfriend and I spent two nights here in May. He picked this hotel because he had been here once before. I wanted to go with something more basic and less expensive, since Monteverde is all about the outdoors. He insisted that we went with this... More

We had a group of 6 people - 5 adults and 1 ten year old. The hotel staff was very accommodating. One of our group had a broken ankle that was still non-weight bearing. The person with the broken ankle stayed back from the hiking activities and hung out at the hotel and the facilities on her own for one... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Poco a Poco. It is located very close to town so walking or driving to and from Sta. Elena was a breeze. Every single staff member was professional, friendly and gave us 100% of their attention when we asked questions. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We felt safe while we... More
