We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Ficus. The room was comfortable, large and quiet. We had large windows to sit and enjoy the view - one day the view was a toucan eating in the trees. We also saw a coati walking across the parking lot. The staff was friendly and able to arrange several tours for us, and... More

We really enjoyed staying in this hotel. The hotel itself is on the hillside in Monteverde and is situated along the edge of the rainforest, which was exciting because we got to see White Faced Macaques just off of our balcony. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the included breakfast was really good. The staff is friendly and very... More

Spacious rooms, nice views, big balcony. Very pleasant and helpfull staff, able to arrange all the activities around and transport to Arenal National Park.. Good breakfasts. Nice position of the hotel, but the hill you have to climb is the price you have to pay..

We thought the proximity of this hotel to Santa Elena would be a plus, but it ended up being one of its biggest drawbacks due to the NOISE! It felt like we had front row seats to a motor cross track with the constant buzz of motorcycles up and down the hill and in town. Add in the music and... More

Beautiful hotel room in Santa Elena. We had a spacious room with two queen sized beds and an amazing view over the NIcoya Gulf (Pacific Ocean) which can be viewed from the balcony. Good cable TV, a coffee machine and refrigerator; two rather uncomfortable wooden armchairs and a table. Excellent sized bathroom (with toilet and shower) and basin just outside... More

Staff is here to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible! Rooms are very spacious and the breakfast was very hardy. Any need we had the staff was more than willing to help with and were extremely informative. Would recommend this to anyone

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ficus. The rooms were perfect for our family of four. The rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, and the service at the front desk was fantastic. They were very helpful in helping us set our itinerary and book several tours. Breakfast in the morning was complementary. It was pretty hardy and the food... More

This was the fourth hotel in our Costa Rica adventure. Located on the hill overlooking the town of Santa Elana. Nice surroundings, beautiful room with big windows and polite and obliging hotel staff. We were aware that it is not a resort hotel with all the luxuries that go with such accommodation. Breakfast only, no bars - you pay for... More
