Great hotel at a reasonable price. Beautiful view. Quiet even though it is in the middle of town. Room was lovely, service friendly and professional. Nice spa. excellent breakfast. Location was perfect near town and lots of restaurants and half way between the two reserves.

The Restaurant and Pool Areas were great. The rooms, not so much. It took three flushes to flush the toilet, at least in the afternoon. Our room had no desk, chair, closet or wardrobe to hang clothes. There was a small cabinet with hangers, part of a dresser. It was very short, about two feet high. We were unable to... More

Good Things: close to downtown Not so good things: We had no hot water. When we told the front desk at 5:30am, they said maintenance would be in soon and they would take care of it. At 7am, they still had not checked on it. We said they could enter the room, if needed, as we were headed out for... More

We hadn’t planned to stay here – we wanted to try Arco Iris, which was booked, – but my husband, myself, and our 5-year-old son really enjoyed it. The pool was delightful – nice design, covered (from sun and rain), with a small swim-up bar, along with a hot tub. There was a kids playhouse (equipped with a kid-size toilet,... More

Stayed 2 nights while spending 10 days in Costa Rica. Rooms are quaint, but close to main road. Noise from traffic, hotel dining room staff leaving, and dogs almost most of the night. On the plus side, short walking distance to markets and options of dining. Most of the staff were courteous. Except one (taller and bigger of the two)... More

Which of course, we got, but the manager was so nice and accommodating, I really could not complain. He was the kindest person, and offered over and over to change our room, but no others were available. We ate dinner one night at the hotel and it was very nice. Had many drinks poolside, that was nice. The gorgeous sunsets... More

I stayed here with my husband and 5 yr old son for 2 nights. We enjoyed the view outside our room (hilly pasture land) and the intimate feel of the hotel.

Poco a Poco is not a budget hostel or a luxury hotel it's a mid-priced (for the expensive market in Monteverde) option with most of the amenities of the higher priced options.
