“The price is right and the breakfast is great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

We stayed at the Camino Verde for four nights in late April, 2012. We had a room with a private bath(other rooms share a bath). Jose, the manager, was extremely helpful. Camino Verde is clean and basic. We did change rooms after two days because there was a bit of a sewer odor in our room which was located next to the kitchen and shared bath. Our second room was nice. The shower was hot.
The sheets were a bit thin and the mattress was a bit soft, but we slept well.
We were surprised by the amount of wind, but then realized that we were at the top of the mts. between the Caribbean and the Pacific.
The breakfast was good and plentiful. It was a good way to start our day.
Don't miss the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. We also took an evening horseback ride at the El Rodeo stables and did a night walk with Santamaria. Both were worthwhile.
Except for the bedding, I thought that it was a great place to stay. That said, we still slept well.
We were also surprised by the lack of mosquitoes. There were really none to speak of.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not next to the shared shower and toilet. Otherwise all of the other rooms a...

My family and I stayed at Camino Verde B&B for,the second time in March and can highly recommend it without reservation. The rooms are simple but clean, the location is good--quiet and convenient,the breakfast was plentiful. What made Camino Verde stand out for use was the manager, Jose. He was always available and booked us with tours and transportation willingly and professionally. He took the time to learn our interests and therefore, planned perfect days for us. We left feeling we were leaving a friend.

We booked a last minute room here at Camino Verde, and were really glad we did! Andres was SO helpful and helped us book all of our adventures in Monteverde and Arenal. We are very glad we stayed here and got to experience this beautiful mountain town!

I have to say, the place was very clean, the staff was friendly, the breakfast (pancakes) where a good way to start the day.
But at the other hand next to or room there was a lot of rubish and it was very windy.
We really could feel and espacially hear the wind (and the rubish moving)

Luckely we had some ear stops so at the end we could get some sleep...

So if you want to stay here ask for a room not directly in the wind!

I would not recommend this ho(s)tel due of this fact.

I have good news, we have been trying to buy our neighbor property for almost a year now. And last week Andres finally was able to buy it! =) Next week we start cleaning the property and making a nice seating area with humming bird feeders. I´m so sorry for that problem, Before that there was a small insect museum. but they took it down and left all the trash. Next time you come you can have the same room, with no Problem. Thank you anyways for the comment!.

They were warm but not intrusive, flexible, but on time, really a pleasure to deal with. Breakfast is wonderful to start a full day. Very convenient location without a car. Jose was so helpful to make arrangements for tours and transport. Safe for a female traveling alone.

We stayed for a few nights in November. There weren't too many people staying there at the time so Andres let us have our choice of rooms. It's a little difficult to find, but it's in a pretty good location, not far from "downtown." The breakfast was made to order and was ok. A pretty good value overall.
