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

On a friends trip to Costa Rica we stayed 2 nights at the Ficus Sunset Hotel. It was the perfect place for us! The rooms are big, clean and quiet. They include a refrigerator and coffee maker, have a nice balcony and a seating area off to the side. We were at the top of the hill, which was good... More

This hotel was clean and pretty to stay in but the hills to walk to your rooms are quite steep from the town. You will need to stay in shape for this one. People were pleasant but I felt they could have been a little more helpful at times. Breakfast was good. Internet was very slow. Also was quite windy... More

Friendly staff at reception. Rooms were big and fairly clean. Lacked toiletteries and towels and we had to call reception every day about refilling during our three nights' stay. Breakfast opened 6.30 and no options for providing a breakfast-box we could take with us when we went for an early bird-watching tour at 5.45. Also we got our luggage to... More

Run by La Selvatura park, 2 block walk into town. On main road to Monteverde National Park so NO DUST!. Rooms off road so no noise. Views over to Nicoya Peninsula. Beautiful terraces, balconies with teak wood Adirondack style chairs and side tables. We arrived at 7PM on the busy East holiday and they arranged all for early next AM.... More

My daughter and I used the Ficus as a base for exploring the Monteverde area. The staff was amazingly helpful in setting up transportation and tours. The heart of the town is in walking distance down a big hill, so plenty of exercise ! The room was nice with two large sliding glass doors looking out over lots of nature.... More
