From the moment we arrived till departure, the staff was outstanding. We were on the top floor, corner room and the blowing wind was noisy which was a big distraction for sleeping. I would definitely stay here again but request a room on a lower floor.

Poco a Poco is lovely hotel in Santa Elena. The wonderful staff were helpful, courteous and interested in making our stay perfect.

rooms are small and not at all insulated from noise, the winds that blow there frequently, pass thru the room freely... we couldn't sleep at all, considering that prices are not low either, I would look for another hotel, or at least ask specifically for a room in the center of the building

Hotel Poco a Poco is a unique propety which has made very efficient use of a modest hillside space right in the town of Santa Elena. A friendly welcoming drink and good reception followed by a relaxing pool / hot tub after a rigorous drive up a bone-jarring road helped to soothe our evening arrival, and then the dinner in...

After 2 weeks of low rates hotels I needed something more. I told my husband that I was deciding where we would go stay in Monteverde. I chose Poco a Poco and we loved it. Location is amazing. The view... Rooms are cozy. Food is really good and the pool and jacuzzi were the luxurary I was looking for.

Situated in the really hard to get to Santa Elena in a walking distance to the center Poca a Poca is a nice, clean, 'green' hotel. The restaurant on premises serves good food though not inexpensive. The hotel does not have heaters so it could get chilly on colder nights.

We stayed two nights in Monteverde and used this hotel as our base. As mentioned in other reviews, the hotel is small and on a busy street, but traffic at night was minimal and we were able to walk to several good restaurants as well as a zipline adventure.
