We enjoyed El Establo as it was a comfortable hotel, about a 20 minute walk into town, and the property is so big it has its own hiking at the top of the mountain. You could hoof it to the top or there's a shuttle that can take you there. Definitely bring your camera and binoculars as there was much exciting biodiversity to see.
Our room was a short walk from the main building, however, we heard that the restaurant, Laggos, near the top of the mountain was good, so one night we called for the shuttle to take us there. It was the best food we had while in Monteverde.
A couple restaurants are a short walk away and a supermarket is about a 10 minute walk in a newly constructed shopping center.
