As its name stands for, Poco a Poco is a hotel that has grown little by little, from five rooms in 2000; our restaurant and 6 more rooms in 02, 18 more rooms at the end of 2005, our heated pool and the last 3 rooms on 2006 and finally for march 2009, our new front desk building, with a new standard in architecture and construction materials: modern, versatile and clean.The hotel's analogy and emblem: The Turtle, relates to its mythological attributes of wisdom, spirituality and perseverance; values that are part of our business philosophy.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
The hotel is ideally located close to shopping and the center of town. Breakfast was not a buffet which is a nice break. Rooms are clean and the jacuzzi is inviting to dip in after a day out. All in all was happy with our choice

Nice clean and modern rooms, no chairs on balcony and but the rooms were drafty. Friendly staff. The poolarea was nice but the deck chairs was very uncomfortable (and few). Drinks and food responsible priced.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
I accidentally double booked a 2-night reservation for 2 adults and 2 children (22, 19) at this hotel. Both reservations were non-refundable, so I was grateful when the hotel agreed to partially refund one of the reservations by charging me for one night instead of two. Poco

Dear Mr. Paul, we deserve more thanjust one star,, you were able to check our rates before booking your room, as you also knew you made NON refundable reservations and we made an exception during the busiest time of the year, just becasuse we didnt want you to be upset during your stay, I guess it didnt work... Thank you for letting other readers know about the good things and we do understand that families travelling together have a higher rate becasuse of the extra person rates, ( we do have special rates for kids ) Thank you for your comments about our service, the pool, the bar, our food, we have just installed air conditioning and we have new garden areas, new firepit, etc.. Our facilities are modern and comfortable, even though our rooms are small, they are very well equipped, wifi is available throughout the property, king size beds are available and we have a special category of garden rooms, one for couples and one for families, they feature air conditioning ( we have the first four rooms with A/C in Monteverde ) mini fridges and are very spacious and well displayed. We always get compliments about our service, Front desk personnel, our waiters and everybody involved in guest service is outgoing, helpful and willing to provide the best service possible. We thank you for your comments. Thanks again for staying with us and thank you for choosing Monteverde as one of your stops in Costa Rica. Best regards and happy travels.

I've heard that there is no air conditioning here. Is that true?
Dear Christina, that is correct, Monteverde is located up 1.500 metres above sea level right at the continental divide. Its windy, much cooler and for years, there hasnt been a real need for A/C in rooms. Yet, let me tell you that due to global warming and climate change, it has gotten much more hotter up here,, ( sometimes of the year ) Hotel Poco a Poco is the first hotel with two deluxe rooms with air conditioned. Please send us an email with dates and number of guests.. and we´ll let you know rates and availability!!

Do they have a fitness center? Does it have a bike?
No. Although they have signs of a fitness center posted throughout the hotel, there is no fitness center. They really need to remove that from the amenities because it’s false advertisement.

"We stayed in a standard Quetzal room - 38 - really comfortable bed and well appointed bathroom with a balcony and view across the valley."
"If you are not upto climbing stairs ask for a room on a lower floor."
"every room is different and fun! Our kids said the wind was loud in the rooms above the office"
"Rooms are fine, common areas are much nicer but we could have WiFi from the room so we were ok. "
"view of the forest is great"
