The hotel is a five minute walk from the town. The staff were helpful with booking tours. Breakfast was good and we had a lovely chat with the owner- a great lady! The room was pleasant and the area very quiet.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Las Orquídeas! The location is great--very easy walking distance to all the downtown Santa Elena restaurants without being directly downtown, so the noise level isn't too high.

About
Description
Hotel Las Orquideas is owned and operated by a local Tico family that lived in U.S. for 29 years. We are located at the entrance of the Monteverde area, only 300 meters from the small town of Santa Elena, the More commercial center of Monteverde, as you drive in from the Pan-American Highway. Here you will find unique, breathtaking views of the local waterfalls right out back with a private trail. The Tilaran mountain range where both, the Santa Elena and Monteverde Cloud Forest reserves are located, the Ecological Sanctuary, the San Luis Valley and the spectacular Gulf of Nicoya, all at one location. All rooms equipped with large windows to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Monteverde and the surrounding areas. We have two styles of rooms, rustic and modern. Beds are outfitted with therapeutic mattresses and hypo-allergenic sheets and comforters. Breakfasts are prepared and served right before your eyes. Come and visit us and feel like being on vacation in the comfort of your own home. Less

Yes, WiFi is available and free on the entire property. What we cannot be responsible for is services outages from our ISP due to weather conditions which is sometimes the case in Monteverde.
