Nice location, rooms fairly clean, but baths were very poor (one of our baths smelled of sewers, in another the shower kept falling apart), breakfast was extremely poor, better go elsewhere -- problem is the nearby bakery is not much better. Wireless works only near the reception. The road and parking lot leading up to the hotel are in extremely poor condition.

For the price, a very nice place to stay in Monteverde. The rooms on the 2nd floor are spacious and beautiful, made entirely from local wood. The rooms have basic amenities, including a small fridge. Make sure to tell the front desk if you do not have hot water, as this happened to us but only required a flip of a switch downstairs to be corrected. The sunset views are also wonderful to take in as you lay from one of the hammocks. Breakfast is included but basic. There is also wireless in the lobby. The main 'downtown' is a 10 min walk away. The front desk is happy to arrange guides at any of the local attractions. And don't forget to check out the same-owner Italian restaurant D'Kary, which is a few minutes walk and serves phenomenal Italian food at prices cheaper than almost any place in town.

Room Tip: 2nd floors rooms offer a great view.

We went in the green season so the hotel had plenty of rooms available. We got a beautiful room on the balcony with an amazing view. The host is also very friendly and happy to help with all information.

Big spacious rooms with a view. Lovely little garden with hummingbird feeders downstairs, pleasant balcony with hammock upstairs. Excellent service. They booked a hike for me with a very knowledgeable guide named "Roy" and saw a whole family of quetzals along with countless other birds and bugs.

It was the first time I travel to Costa Rica and out of 5 Hotels we stay of the country the most excellent Service and food was there at "Hotel Jardines de Monteverde". The service was excellent they have laundry, the bedrooms were excellent the beds, everything was clean and in perfect order, the location was excellent close to the zip lining which it's a wonderful experience, the owners where really nice with us and their family, you just felt like if you were in family with the people there talking to them, talking about Costa Rica culture etc. restaurant service was also wonderful the food was Delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner, best food i ate out of all the restaurants and hotels we went REALLY GOOD, thank you to Dona Grace and her husband and their family that gave us the best service, personally I will definitely go back there :). 100% Recommended.

Room Tip: Higher floors have the best sunset view.

We traveled with a group of 26 high school students this spring. The hotel was lovey and the hosts were very gracious and cared about us. I think the second floor hotel balcony has the best views of spectacular sunsets in the area. Breakfasts were wonderful and their restaurant, Restaurante Dikary had great food at very reasonable prices. We'll definitely return!

Room Tip: 2nd floor balcony facing west has wonderful views of sunsets, but even if you are on the first floor...

I've been traveling to Costa Rica with groups now for 13 years and over the years have had a chance to stay in a wide-array of establishments. Around 6 years ago a good friend of mine, who also happens to be a driver for a tour company in Costa Rica mentioned Hotel Jardines to me. I stopped by and got to know the owner Dona Grace, and her husband, two daughters and son. Over the past 6 years, I have brought groups to the hotel and what I like the most of it is that is feels like a staying with my own extended family when I am their. This was/is pretty much a small family owned business that has grown and been expanded upon year after year. The owners genuinely care about their guests, constantly working to learn more about guest needs, and address them. If you are looking to have a nice stay, in a comfortable location, meet a friendly staff that really has put their hearts into service, come to Los Jardines. If you are looking for an upscale resort or a standardized Hampton Inn type experience this is probably not the hotel for you. Also, it is a great value, and Dona Grace and the staff truly want to hear feedback in order to improve guest experiences.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an outside window:).
