Great hotel and location. Walking distance to the commercial center and downtown. At first the pool and hot tub was cold, but after complaining, the temperatures were modified and very pleasant! We had an in room jacuzzi and the temperature would not go above 75F which was a bummer. Spacious room, super helpful staff. Great happy hour deals. Good breakfast....

We stayed here for two nights our room (19) was dank, dreary and smelt musty. There was no hanging space, the walls were bare. The worst was when we left our room at night, it was in total darkness, there was absolutely no outside light at all. However as one got half way down the stairs by the restaurant a...

We had the best dinner of our trip here, plus the breakfasts were very good, but that's really where the praise has to end. I suppose the view was also good at the reception. The list of negatives is quite long - we had power cuts overnight; no hot water on arrival (and only lukewarm by the time we left);...

Stayed here in mid-January for two nights. Clean and safe but VERY outdated. No toiletries offered. Could not sleep in as housekeeping staff quite noisy in the early AM. However, it was well-situated to be walkable to a few spots for dinner. Nice patio to enjoy drinks and the sunsets, which are beautiful. Front desk staff were helpful. We inquired...

Middle class hotel. Friendly staff. Rooms are rather small and outdated. No heating or aircon which is hard as it gets cold during the night and clothes are moist. Room and facilities are clean. Hot tub is nice and warm. Same as the pool. Nothing fancy but ok for the price.

Dear Mr Greog. Thank you for your comments. Hotel Poco a Poco is one of the best equipped hotels in Monteverde, yet, none of the other hotels in Monteverde offer A/C, this is an “improvement” that will have to come soon, due to global warming and colder weather conditions more often. Actually: hotel Poco a Poco is the first hotel...

We woke up on a Sunday before 8 am because of the noise of buses outside our window, waiting for tourists to get in with the motors on for more than 20 minutes. They told us the day before we were “lucky” because those were the new rooms they just finish building, but when the buses finally left some constructions...

Dear Mrs Batalla. We are very sorry you did not enjoy your time spent in Monteverde. I´m very sorry we couldn’t deliver the service you were expecting.

We were hoping to enjoy this hotel and its facilities for three nights, but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate - while we were there, an unusual tropical depression set in with no signs of clearing up in the near future. We had to cut our trip short and move on to our next stop in Costa Rica, but did...

The hotel is located close to the small city center. Nice view over the valley well suited for a sunset drink. Small pool with jacuzzi. Good breakfast where the tico version and the pancakes were our favorites. Wifi only in reception.
