I was looking for a place close by downtown and not too far from the Monteverde Park and we were more than happy we booked Poco a Poco. My family of four we enjoyed our visit to the reserve (only 5km away) where we saw tons of wildlife including a beautiful humingbird park and also the cloud forest. We had... More

Staff was professional friendly, rooms modern and tidy. The pool looked very nice but was shallow, so it was impossible to swim.Restaurant was ok, as was the Hotel. We stayed only 2 nights in Monteverde, it is ok for that

Service was excellent - front desk, restaurant... but the hotel is very noisy with the winds, cars, dogs, and birds. None of the rooms seem to be soundproof and windows opening into the corridor kept me up with people walking up the stairs (talking) to their rooms. The hotel is just okay but convenient enough to the town and access... More

We stayed 3 nights on this fine hotel, close to the city and green grass field just beside. Lovely little garden with fountain, lots of different birds visiting the tree between reception and restaurant. Could sit on the porch and get close up pictures off the birds with a drink served from the always friendly people in the restaurant. Live... More

We enjoyed the stay at Poco a Poco for two nights. It is a great location and easy walking distance to town and many restaurants. The staff was attentive and pleasant. The rooms were well kept and clean. The issue we had was the noise. The hotel is right on a major thoroughfare and early mornings and late evenings were... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Poco a Poco. Our room was a corner room on the third floor which was very quiet and the views over the garden and surrounding counryside were stunning, especially at sunset. The breakfast was good and hearty with a good selection on the menu. You could even take a break from the rice and... More

I have been planning my 40th Birthday for almost a year and my travel agency booked this place.

First, the property is gorgeous, and the staff is super friendly. The walls are OMG thin, and for the last 2 nights I have had to listen to the couple next door... Well, doing the horizontal tango.
