Our first great experience in Costa Rica. As at home, by the way, the detail made the difference. From the hummingbirds that are spoiled with a sweet that attracts them permanently, to the beautiful blue morpho, to the delicious breakfast, sympathy of all the staff....More

About
Description
Hotel El Mono Feliz is in the small village of Ojochal, - the Foodie Capital of Costa Rica. We're 10 minutes from some of the most amazing beaches in the world, as well as a seemingly endless supply of More adventure, birding, nature, and water activities. From zip lining to ultralights and from bird watching to whale watching - it's here for you to enjoy. Our 3 acre property consists of several types of hotel rooms and bungalows - several with private kitchens and all with private baths, , a large outdoor swimming pool, walkable gardens - and over 130 species of identified birds that frequent our haven. This hotel is perfect for people who would like to slow down, unwind, and relax at the speed of nature. Please note that due to the number of stairs and bridges we do not accept children under 6 years old. Less

As others said, there are two small dogs, both quite elderly. Please talk to Patrick and Todd who will do everything they can to make you comfortable.
