Poco a Poco was a very nice hotel. The hotel staff could not have been better -5 stars! Michael at the front was extremely helpful booking our excursions.
Although the bathrooms were a bit dated the room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. The location is good, it’s walking distance to the town and away from most of the noise (but it is located on the main road and can be a little noisy. There were road repairs at the entrance to the hotel during our stay but there’s too much to do and see in Monteverde to sleep in). The restaurant was very good, and the nightly entertainment by the impressive Gonzalo Gonzales was very good. We spent our evenings sipping wine and enjoying his music.
I don’t understand the poor reviews, I travel a lot and this was a nice hotel for the price and the area. People just need to read the hotel description and reviews before booking and complaining.
Note: There was no closet in the room, only drawers. Also know that there is no elevator at the hotel or a/c but Monteverde generally stays cool enough, too bad there were no screens on the windows - although typical for Central America, it would have kept the bugs out.
