Nice place with hipsterish touch. Great value for money, very friendly staff and very good breakfast. It is located in centre so you have a lot of eating and shopping options just in a few minutes walking distance.
My partner and I had an incredible stay here. We stayed 2 nights in a double room. The family who owns the property are so lovely and kind. We enjoyed the calm space and felt right at home. Very clean, very comfortable, very affordable and very good location.
My boyfriend and me were only for a short stopover in Santa Elena to have a wall in the cloud forest and to head to Montezuma the next day. We regret that we could not stay longer in the B&B and get to know more about the coffee the family is growing. Highly recommendable!
On the plus side: Staff are friendly, location is decent (steep dirt road and nearby nightclub with music until the wee hours notwithstanding). Kitchen is nice, plenty of tea and coffee (though access hours are limited to 7am-9pm - not exactly ideal for night-owls like us!). Shower was hot - our room had a perfectly functional Frankenstein-type shower head (as we used to call them in S. America ;-) that electrically heats the water as it passes through. On the other hand: Bathroom a bit small and laid out problematically (not enough room between your legs and the door when on the throne). Less than wonderful smell in the room the whole time we were there - something like a cross between cheap cleaning products and a locker room; I suspect inadequate ventilation. Thin windows and walls. Bed and especially pillows less than stellar. Also, our double room with private bath was described as having a mini-fridge and hair-dryer (there's a fridge for sure in the online picture of the room we had, #3), yet neither item was there. Finally, the internet was intermittent and the 700-8:30 breakfast that needs to be pre-booked is limited (gallo pinto for breakfast?). Oh well. Monteverde is a very touristy town and this place wasn't exorbitantly expensive. The family that runs it is friendly as well.…
This was an interesting lodging to say the least. We were in room 2. Each room is different so look closely prior to choosing. Our room was very small; it didn’t have room for a chair nor a closet, but it did have a refrigerator and a TV. The bed makes noice with each movement. The toilet in the bathroom was directly in front of the door and you would have to sit slightly sideways to close the door. They served breakfast and it was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is not a terrible place if you don’t mind roughing it a little.
