First, know that the winds in Monteverde are insane! And the hotel is built with thin walls, so if the banging of your windows against the wind doesn't keep you awake, the people stomping up and down the halls and slamming doors (or even just talking next door) will. The hotel is a bit past it's prime, i even fell... More

The front desk staff helpful. Room was clean, average. There was no water pressure in the shower! It was very windy during our stay and the door rattled, so we put a towel between the door and frame. This solved the problem.

This is in a location that offers great views of Monte Verde. There is nothing to do around there unless you take a cab. The walk in to the town takes about 5 minutes and there isn't much to do there either. The restaurant has decent food and the staff was great and very friendly. The room was small and... More

Dear Soul. Thank you for your review, I don’t think you are giving us enough credit: compared to other hotels located much further towards the forest areas, Hotel Poco a Poco is located right in the center of Santa Elena, where all the action is!!! Actually, we have plenty of activities around us,,, and it is my personal opinion: taking... More

The hotel is very nice with all the amenities and the staff is very friendly. We found our rooms to be spacious and the hotel grounds to be modern. I think it was a great place to stay while in Monteverde.

I found the way the treated me at the hotel’s restaurant quite disturbing. I did not know it was a la carte breakfast and I usually calculate only a few minutes for eating breakfast.

A well situated hotel for visiting the cloud forest. Staff were friendly. Rooms not great - on the small side. Jacuzzi too hot! The only blip happened on our first night when we had been told we did not need to make a reservation in the restaurant. When we arrived we were turned away from the restaurant (which was almost...

Dear Mr Antr0bus. Thank you for your comments, we highly recommend to make reservations, nevertheless, we also take some chances when occupancy is high in order to accommodate all our guests. We do have big groups with fixed menus sometimes and it does get crowded some nights. Thank you for complementing our food, and for having dinner again the following... More

Hotel Poco a Poco is a very cute, small hotel. The hotel grounds are absolutely beautiful! Beautiful gardens, nice pool (that we didn't get the chance to try out), patio and a great seat to watch the sunset. The location is perfect. Across the street from there is commercial center with restaurants, a supermarket, and several cute boutique stores. Downtown... More

We stayed in the Poco a Poco hotel during our stay in Monteverde. This is a very good hotel, the reception staff were very friendly and the atmosphere great. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom very clean, the only downside was no view from room. The hotel facilities were exceptional, with great views, covered pool and lots of space... More

There was screw up with our booking 1st night, lack of communication between the hotel and our travel company. While they couldn't do anything about it that night, as they were full, my wife and I got a separate room (no charge) the 2nd night so that our boys could have their own beds. This, coupled with some other moments... More

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
