First, I would call this a motel/lodge and not a Hotel. The room are very clean but also very simple, three beds and nothing more, not even bed lamps. Biggest problem is that they are very noisy when the wind blows, which it did 4 days in a row when we stayed. There are no lobby or common areas, just... More

They cancelled our booking some days before we arrived. Thank you! If you can not handle overbooking, I have advice for you: Don't do it!!! And it was not even that they wrote by themselves or said sorry, they had the booking website send us a very business-y email. insufficient customer care

Unfortunately, my friend and I had a horrible experience. After finding average sorts of bugs (cockroaches, spiders, beetles) which we can handle, we started to see Bed Bugs within the bed itself, and around the bed frame. These we couldn't handle, because they are incredibly hard to get rid of if you carry one home. We immediately left the room... More

The hamlet of Monteverde is conveniently located to go hiking in the Cordillera de Tilarán from where one can overlook the Arenal Volcano and lake, and/or, to participate in nearby adrenaline pumping activities such as crossing hanging bridges at tree canopy level or even more sensational: zooming through the cloud forest, attached to zip-lines. Moreover, Monteverde is a quiet place,... More

We stayed here for 6 nights over Easter. Pros: the view of the sunsets from the top floor is amazing every night. Short walk into town but away from the noise of the main road. Most comfortable bed we've had through South and Central America so far. Daily servicing of your room. Very clean. Juanita cooks a great breakfast (and... More

We loved our stay at Puesta del Sol mostly because of Freddy, the owner. He will give you good information about the tours that matches your interest. Also he is a birdwatching-guide himself. We've had a great trip with him showing us a lot of different birds. Also, the beds are perfect for a good night rest and it's very... More

We chose the place after checking appx. 15 other options in Santa Elena and nearby. We looked for something calm, clean with open view but for price max to 30$. However, that was a mission impossible and after 2hrs we got to La Puesta del Sol and took it for slightly higher price - big, bright and clean private room... More

The inn keeper and his family was very nice and made you feel welcome. You will have fun with the cat and dog that greets you as you enter the premises. Only one issue is no hot water from the sink only the tub.

I cannot explain how wonderful this man is! Yes, I am aware this review is supposed to be about the hotel, which by the way is clean, comfy, has hot water, but I have to rave about Freddy! He is the greatest! His bird tour is phenomenal. He can spot a bird from oceans away lol. Sloths too. His wife... More
