“Eco-friendly and great produce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

We really enjoyed staying at Los Pinos in a junior cabin. The staff was terrific, the hydroponic gardens fascinating (and the fact that we could pick all the produce we wanted was an unexpected perk). It's a cabin, so don't expect anything fancy -- but really comfortable beds, great to have a kitchen, internet, a book exchange in the reception area (I was so grateful to get a book for the plane ride home!) Exceptionally nice young people working at Los Pinos.

I was there with my wife,celebrating our first anniversary. Everything was great. Can't see the hour to comeback! Rafael the manager is such a gentle host, and all the staff is wonderful. I am a professional photographer, and I did not miss the chance to capture the beauty of nature around our lovely bungalow.
A place you must visit!

Our family of 4 loved the family cabin (#4). It had 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Each bedroom had a twin and a double bed, for a capacity of up to 9. It was probably a little more space than we needed, but the brothers enjoyed having their own bedrooms. The kitchen was pretty well equipped for anyone wishing to prepare full meals. Since there were plenty of restaurants within walking distance, we only used the refrigerator. We enjoyed the hydroponic gardens and ate cherry tomatoes aplenty. The hiking trail on the property was a pleasant way to start the morning. The kids even met another set of siblings on the modest playground. We had a picnic table on the porch, and we able to see an agouti, lizards and other small wildlife right from the porch. Panadería Jiménez was a 5 minute walk from our cabin and we had a lovely breakfast there a couple of mornings. I would absolutely recommend Los Pinos to families!

We loved the Superior cabin. Very comfortable feel inside and out. Great family run business eager to help to enhance your stay in the Monteverde/Santa Elena area. Nice view from the View point. Great produce from the green house hydroponic garden! Would most definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Superior cabins are awesome! Spacious, nicely laid out, relaxing. Larger windows, fireplace and de...

Los Pinos was a great find for our family of 5. The cabin (#6) had 3 separate bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms plus a full kitchen with a microwave. Our daughter loved that there was a greenhouse on the property and we were allowed to visit and take fresh vegetables for meals. The location is in between the towns of Santa Elena and Monterverde and taxis were very reasonable. The staff was very hospitable and Rafael even arranged a visit to a local school for us. I would recommend this property to families with children or groups of people traveling together. The grounds were beautiful to walk around as well, but it takes some good hiking shoes as it is on a hilly area to get from cabin to cabin. Tip: Bring a flash light as it makes it interesting to see any night creatures and find your way to the cabin since the sun sets around 5:30pm each night.

a little outside of Santa Elena, which we enjoyed.

The cabin was spacious and the kitchen was well-stocked with pots and pans.

The hydroponic garden was impressive and even more impressive, we were allowed to pick whatever we needed for eating and cooking.

Overall, we were fairly bored with Monteverde and left a day early, but I don't think that reflects the cabins themselves.

This is such a gret place to stay if you are traveling to Monteverde. It is comfortable and you can find all what you need within the rooms. The service is excellent. The reservation was really easy and we did not have any problem with that. The location is good. You can have a real experience in nature. You can see squirells, birds......
