We were meant to be staying in a nearby hotel but it had some rooms cancelled due to building work. This was such a bonus as Poco a Poco is such a great hotel. The staff are really friendly in particular Gabriel and Daniel. The breakfasts are really good such a different menu and plenty of choices for vegetarians. We had a couple of cocktails here too which are very different to your normal choices. The pool and hot tub were lovely and perfect for relaxing inbetween activities. We liked having a stroll round the grounds with the agoutis running about. The gardens are very well kept and interesting with the vegetables growing. Our room was on the ground floor and was basic and a bit dark but it had everything you needed in it. The only thing we found was coming back from the town after 10pm all the lights were off so it made negotiating the stairs a bit tricky - we thought there could have been a security light that came on would have been helpful but apart from that we loved our stay here.

Really enjoyed our stay- from the location to friendly staff and great food/cocktails at the restaurant! The restuarant also had live music in the evening. The pool/jacuzzi were relaxing after a day of hiking :) Highly recommend! :)

We (me and my parents) stayed in Poco a Poco Monteverde for two nights. We were the only guests and the swimming pool was closed because of the Corona virus, so our stay was a bit different. They were still really hospitable and adjusted everything to us. The restaurant had many options on the menu and they were all from good quality. The room was really clean with nice beds and a very beautiful bathroom. It’s only a ten minutes walk to the restaurants, so you barely need a car.

Dear Angela, We appreciate your feedback because with it we can improve the quality of service that we will provide to our next guests. We are sorry we should close our pool, but this was in order by the Healthy Government Department request and always thinking in your security. You’re right! We are just 5 minutes away from the center of the town of Santa Elena where you can find lots of colorful attractions: cafés, restaurants, gift shops, minimarkets, ice cream parlors, local salons, live music, and much more. Our guests can enjoy of restaurant, great food, local recipes, Costa Rican cuisine, live music regularly, or they can just go across the street and find stores, supermarket, and a few choices of food. It's amazing how we always receive positive comments about our staff, it makes us proud! Thank you so much for your time and visit! Best regards

Clean, convenient for visiting monte verde but high winds are common making it extremely noisy as corridors are open to the elements No lifts so people with mobility issues will struggle No hanging space in the room

Dear Mary Anne, Thank you for taking the time to share your comment, it is very important to us in order to know the aspects we should improve in order to offer a better service to our guests. Yes, as you said Monteverde could be very windy, specially on this dates but those natural conditions are part of the region and the Monteverde experience. We do not have lifts for the superior floors, but we also have very nice ground floor rooms with easy access for the people with movility issues. Thank you again for your opinion, we will take it into account. Hope you can return to visit us someday in the future, you will be very welcome! Best regards,

We stayed here for two nights, as part of a small tour group. When the group arrived, we were impressed that one of the staff on the reception desk gave us a detailed introductory talk about the hotel and its facilities. The hotel is on the edge of Monteverde, but close to shops and restaurants: there is a shopping centre just across the road. It was only on the last morning we discovered much of the garden, as it extends a lot further than it appears, with a path winding through woodland. Our room (number 25) was comfortable enough, but it is part of a group of four on the other side of the restaurant from most of the rooms, which I think are better than ours. Our room could be a bit noisy, and had no means of heating (we were there on a surprisingly chilly evening), nor cooling, other than window vents, had it been hot. Breakfasts were good, and dinner in the evening was excellent: on the evening we ate there, there was live music in the restaurant. All the staff friendly and helpful.
