“Great and exciting destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Starting with a beautiful location not far from the capital, beautiful scenery overlooking Heredia. Is a great place to visit if you are looking for a retreat from the city live stile, without having to drive a long distancen. Excellent service right from the time that we arrived, I had a blast on the canopy ride, the food at the restaurant was great, and affordable, the music and the drinks where to enjoy and relax

We wanted a place not in the busy center of San Jose, but not to far away either.
We went to monte campana on advice of a friend, it's a rustic place in the mountains nearby the cities, meaning it's doesn't have room-service, but it has a nice bar, a good pool and some other attractions we did, I must admit, it was a good few days. We went on a quad tour and did a mini “canopy”. Not as high as the more famous ones, but with a nice view over the valley. Rooms are clean, and they had good mattresses ( which I find important ).

Room Tip: We went for the log cabin, lots of privacy, very quiet . But next time we'll go for the tree hou...

We went as a group of 7, mostly seniors over 50.
Their website is a farce. Our "villa" was dirty, with a gross kitchenette, ripped sheets in one of the beds..the bathroom sink was rusty and also dirty.
We understand when a place is simple and humble, but dirty, it isn't acceptable.
It is a shame that such a beautiful, natural setting is ruined with the worst staff we ever encountered.
The prices were reasonable, but once there, we felt scammed.
The restaurant was so-so, very slow service. I got a strawberry daiquiri with salted flavor..

Me parece un hotel centrico para pasar un fin de semana o tener una pequeña escapada entre semana. Las instalaciones son bonitas y las habitaciones comodas y limpias. Personalmente lo recomiendo porque se pueden realizar diferentes actividades como jugar tennis, disfrutar de la piscina, caminatas cortas por los senderos y otros atractivos cercanos como el Volcán Poás y el Canopy. No es un hotel de Lujo pero si vale la pena.

This hotel is located in Heredia. Around 39 minutes away from San Jose. If you rent a car you will enjoy the attractions in the area and I will be easier to reach the hotel. Once there you have a nice room, nice view, nice weather and some amenities as an small swimming pool, tennis court, short but nice trails, restaurant and bar. I wnjoy my stay and I will recommend it specially in week days. It is less crowd it.

Pura Vida

Room Tip: Es necesario tener carro para llegar más fácilmente y poder visitar los atractivos de la zona

This place was amazing, the people there are friendly and helpful. The landscape was amazing, lots of pretty insects and animals to look at and takes pictures of. They have a nice waterfall you can hike to. Awesome pool with slide and very clean. Ropes course up in the trees.. The kitchen was awesome, great food.. Overall probably one of my favorite spots I have traveled to!
The owner of the Hotel and his staff are very knowledgeable in the tourist attractions around the hotel so you dont get board. Oh man and the view...the view from the hotel rooms are all out of this world, you can see the entire City of San Jose lit up at night!

Room Tip: They were building a few "Tree House Cabins" im sure those rooms are super cool to stay in...

I could write this review in Spanish but it'll be redunctant to others already written, so I rather warn potential English speaking guest... Don't go! It's not the place and the basic infrastructure, it's the lack of knowledge of the service industry the staff have, it's the mediocre kitchen, it's the fact that the place is plagued with people, not guest, that walks in for the day to crow the pool *a very small one by the way) and shouts and yell making it impossible to have a nice rest that the surroundings invite to. For US$ 70 you're better off in some other offer somewhere else in Costa Rica
