Stayed with my girlfriend for 2 nights at Hotel Poco a Poco, a nice eco-friendly resort in Santa Elena, outside Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. We both appreciated the climate change awareness that this hotel offered, and the green touches pleased us both. Busy with activities, we didn't spend too much time at the resort, but enjoyed our stay. The enormous library of movies was a nice touch (we rented one but never got around to watching it), and the front desk was extremely helpful in organizing tours.
We ate dinner one night in the on-site restaurant, and had an ok experience. I ordered a steak, but was brought the wrong one (at the time I was too hungry to wait on the right steak, so just ate it, and it was fine).
Our only major complaint was that the 'pool bar' was really not staffed. We tried to get a drink and relax in the hot tub one evening, but no service seemed to be available.
The room was clean, the bed comfy, etc. Walls are a little thin, so we could sometimes hear our neighbors, and work being done outside.
The location is great - walking distance to amenities in Santa Elena, and only a 3k drive to the Cloud Forest reserve.
