This hotel was a nice respite in the midst of the city.... we had a room on away from the road with a nice view to the west. The pool and hot tub were quite pleasant. The restaurant was very good. All in all, a nice quiet spot in a busy town.

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.

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!

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.
