we spent one night here and found the Sunset perfect for what we needed. I won't lie in that I prefer nicer hotels but in the middle of the rain/cloud forest in the mountains.. this is perfect. they pay much attention to the property, clean rooms, wonderful breakfast. Walls are pretty thin so you hear neighbors. Very nice and helpful... More

Travelling around Costa Rica with my 13 & 15 year old children can prove to be interesting as we're on a strict budget. We were in Playa del Coco and decided to take a trip to Monteverde. Everyone told us that we should take a private bus for $50 each, but we decided to take the public bus and enjoyed... More

Lucky for us, when we were in Monteverde, we stopped at the ranger station and made some inquires. The ranger connected us with this property - calling the owner to see if he had room, etc. "Yes, send them down"..... When we arrived, we were greeted by a young lady who gave us the option of what room we wanted... More

Vitalis, the owner makes you feel at home. This is my third trip to Monteverde and second time at the Sunset. It is on the way from town to Selvetura so that is convenient if you have a car. The breakfast is nice. And you have great views of the Nicoya peninsula and gulf. The rooms are not fancy but... More

The family that owns the place are super friendly. And they make your free breakfast right there, that consists of 2 eggs, bread, fruit, and jelly. It was very good. But the room itself is extremely simple. Pretty much a bed, and a bathroom. So if that's all you're looking for then this is the place. They don't provide soap... More

My Partner and I just returned from a stay there May 29-30, 2015. There’s not much more I can say but to confirm what most people already have said. I will emphasize that the place is clean and comfortable with privacy. The service is great. The views are fantastic. We stayed a second night because it was worth it for... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights in May 2015. The room was simple but clean and comfortable, pretty much what I expected for the price. The cost included breakfast which was prepared by the owner, Vitalis and included fresh bread bought every morning at a local bakery and delicious jams, fresh fruit and eggs. Simple yet "rico". I...

This hotel has an friendly, intimate feel, and as many have said, feels more like a B&B. The beds, while a little outdated, are cozy and clean, and the breakfast is phenomenal. Homemade to order every morning, eggs, fresh fruit, and delicious bread. The best breakfast we had in CR. And such friendly, welcoming owners with great recommendations! The hotel... More
