The accommodation is fine but to be honest I have been disappointed with the value in Costa Rica generally. A family room cost us nearly $150, it's a lot for what you get in my opinion. But it is a typical price for this area. Staff were friendly, room large but basic and a a little tired.breakfast was ample

We enjoyed our stay in Room 20, the shower area was large as was the room. We had a fridge in the room, good for keeping water cold and also our yoghurt for breakfast. It was a good 20 mins walk into the village with a couple of hills to climb on the way back. Good exercise! The young boy... More

The rooms were clean and functional but there was very little pressure from the shower. The breakfast wasn't great and there were dogs in the kitchen and sitting begging for food when we were served which was off putting. The staff were good in helping to organise our transport and activities.

We stayed here for three nights in April as part of a tour. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with a fridge. It is approximately 1km out of the town centre but near to several good local restaurants and the butterfly garden. The breakfast was good and substantial What made our stay here was the owner, Luis, who was very... More

We could only stay for a night since we were passing through Monteverde, but I loved this hotel. It's clean, spacious, has a lovely breakfast in the morning, and is walking distance to diverse places. The only thing I didn't enjoy is the owners insisting we take a touristy bus to our next destination instead of helping us find the... More

We stayed 2 nights, during some epic winds and rains. Very comfortable, and within a short walk to some excellent restaurants and a convenience store. Clean and comfortable, with a nice breakfast. The location is good - not in the center of town, but nearby. Easy access to all the reserves and attractions that brought us to Monteverde. We would... More

Convenient location, very clean and surprisingly high standard for this remote a location. Great local restaurants and supermarket in immediate neighbourhood, if you want more choice 15 min walk to Santa Elena town centre. Luis was very helpful in booking tours and transportation. Great breakfast.

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a tour, was one of the best places we stayed. Massive rooms and massive beds which were also very comfortable. Not in the middle of town so nice and quiet. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Have not got a bad word to say about the place. Highly recommended.

I loved my stay here! HUGE glorious rooms, giant bath tubs and showers, all felt very eco friendly, warm and inviting. The staff went out of their way to help us as well, one night they helped me order a pizza to the hotel as I had been on the Night walk and had missed group dinner - the pizza... More
