We stayed here for two nights. We were allocated one of the units on the upper level and it was lovely but it is a steep hill to drag the luggage up from reception. One bag was taken for us by the gentleman who showed us to our room, and I'm sure the others would also have been taken for...

Rooms are huge, and there are only 20 rooms, so it's quiet. Breakfast is a buffet with the main dishes changing every day, featuring both Costa Rican and American foods. We stayed 3 nights. Great views from the rooms of the ocean and rainbows. The rooms are up a hill, so be prepared. The only things I would change would...

Loved this hotel. Helpful staff, gorgeous room, best breakfast of anywhere we stayed, and good location. Our room was huge, tiled, large dressing area and spacious stone and tile bathroom with a large shower. Monteverde Reserve is about 4 miles away by taxi. Highly recommend this hotel. Beautiful sunset view down to Santa Elena.

I wanted to love this hotel. There are some definite pros here: location is good for Sta Elana visits, poking around (if you are okay with a STEEP hill walk) and for Cloud forest exploring, Selvatura or other zip-lining, etc. Rooms are clean and large and there are nice windows. Not sure if whole hotel is non-smoking but our rooms...

Our room was very clean and the staff was friendly. We saw beautiful birds on the grounds. It was just a short walk down the hill to great shops and eating. Please note that it is on a steep hill and curve, you will likely hear motorcycles on the road and beeping their horns as the round the curve. The...

Spacious, clean room with magnificent vista through ceiling to floor glass. Good location as it is less than 5 min walk to the centre of Sta Elena. Very friendly and helpful receptionist. Breakfast (included) not great quality but edible, standard choice: rice, pancakes, eggs, sausages. coffee a bit weak for me. Overall I would recommend it if you are not...

pros: great location good customer service beautiful views (sunsets especially) beautiful rooms, no complaints cons: car has to be parked down the hill so there's a bit of a walk if your room is located high up there

Great spot with incredible views! Walking distance to Santa Elena and good location for exploring the reserves in the area. We felt very safe walking around exploring the area. Staff had great restaurant recommendations and were very helpful. Even saw monkeys right from our balcony!

Beautiful hotel with very spacious rooms! Very hilly but you are in the mountains. Staff is very accommodating - helped us with our bags and had a shuttle drive us up the hill to our room. Offered advice on future excursions too! Even helped us with a little critter (a scary one) that snuck into our room! Breathtaking view from...
