Is there air conditioning
Yes, although you are unlikely to need it at that elevation. Take an umbrella and rain gear. You are on the other side of Monteverde rain forest.

Is your hotel comfortable with a gay couple? We are visiting Costa Rica later this year and, though we're a very conservative and discreet couple, we don't want to be in an uncomfortable situation or unnecessarily make hotel owners or staff uncomforable. Thanks,
Hello we don´t have problems with gays couples. You can book with us and i hope that you will have a nice time.
