I have stayed there one night, the room was close to the kitchen and was very noisy from 6:00 am in the morning... Jose and Andres was not so pleased to know that I book some trips around thru other travel agency, and they didn't spare me their unpleasantness... Definitely not one of the best experiences I had in Costa...

We booked Tina's but got a room in Atardecer which is of the same owners. The room was only little larger than a double bed. There is enough space outside to allow you to read and have a drink so that compensated a bit for the disappointing room. The breakfast was nice and the service by Jose superb. It actually...

Tina's Casitas is a lovely little spot off the main road. The rooms were tidy and nicely decorated. The breakfast was good. The best thing was the owner Jose (I hope I have this right). He was amazingly helpful, making phone calls for my husband and I and booking our bus to get to the other side of the country....

The casitas are on a hill, and directly in the line of fire if the wind is blowing. We could have used more blankets, and the pillows were like rocks. Too cold to shower in water that just didn't heat up!

The staff was absolutely fabulous. I visited Monteverde in early January 2012. It was so windy and cold (so bring layers if you are traveling around that time). We arrived on the jeep boat jeep from Arenal. The driver didn't quite know where we were going because there is another place in town called Camino Verde (which is what Tina's...

My family (2 kids, my wife and I) stayed in the private (4 beds) room for a couple of days in December 2011.
