This was a great choice for Monteverde, The staff is super friendly, they helped me out with reservations with tours that they have no connection with and to change date to my zipline reservation. The property is amazing, my room was very large with a king and queen very comfortable beds. didnt use the pool because of weather but looked very nice. The location is great. Breakfast was great and staff at restaurant were great. Food choices at restaurant was limited, but we prefer to eat at local places anyways. recommended if you need a couple of nights in Monteverde.

Nice hotel, Beautiful grounds. good food. We stayed here a couple nights while visiting Monteverdi. Wild life roaming the grounds.. Tons of birds seen from the bedroom window and pool deck. Nice pool.. Place was very quiet due to covid and being the middle of the week. Room had an old world charm with warm hardwood floors and ceiling. Staff was very friendly and gave great advice on things to see and do..

The property is beautiful and it is lovely to walk around on the trails, when it's not raining or cold. The rooms are well above average although ours was supposed to have a view and it did not. It is very quiet, but still convenient to town and the various activities.

I stayed with my daughter, at first it was for 2 days but once we saw the grounds and the rooms, we decided to stay 3 days. The rooms are amazing, the views, the air, the trees. We saw animals just arriving. The food was great. The service incredible. I enjoyed very much the bird seeing tour as well as our visit to the Reserva. We already booked our next visit.
