We rented a vehicle for our trip in Costa Rica so we drove to El Sol. We came from La Fortuna and we did not take the regular route through Tilaran, we went the opposite way on the border of Arenal Lake - there's a brand new paved road that shortened are time getting to Santa Elena, we used the...

We adored the peace and quiet of El Sol. Our Cabin was beautiful and well appointed. So much thought had clearly gone into the design from the lights to the plates. Having breakfast on the balcony with the stunning view, as parrots flew by, was such a wonderful relaxing start to our day. I highly recommend the breakfast that Elisabeth... More

A perfect respite on our journey from fortuna to the coast. Spending a night in the clouds was truly magical and we wished we had more time there. Elisabeth is a kind and gregarious hostess and met all of our needs and then some. Beautiful food brought to your door. Couldn't have asked for more. Say hello to Negreta for... More

I don't even know where to start with my review.... I did so much research looking at accommodations in Monteverde, but I always came back to this one. Boy were we amazed by this place. Our girls absolutely loved it. It is so quiet and peaceful....perfect. Carlos and Leonara are helpful, friendly and the food was fabulous. We found it... More

My husband and I stayed at El Sol for 4 nights in the Large Cabin. From the very start, we felt so welcome! Carlos, the manager, was outside to greet us and see us into our cabin. He also brings breakfast each morning if you order it, and he is very accommodating. Order breakfast when you stay here - you... More

I like my comforts so this was a little out of my comfort zone when I booked it. We had a 21 day trip planned and I booked different types of lodging from luxury to much more basic. Not having AC almost caused me not to reserve it. My wife and I both agree we enjoyed this so much more... More

My son said he felt more comfortable in our cabin than his own beloved room at home. Close to everything and yet a hideaway all on its own. Everything is made with love, and you can feel the difference. Elizabeth was so welcoming and Carlos tended to everything. If you are looking to be refreshed by Costa Rica this is... More

Just beautiful. Words can't capture the feeling of coming home to El Sol at the end of the day. Space to hang out and relax with the family. The view from the pool really is amazing. Cloud forest activities, preserves, zip lines, hikes, birds all close by, but far enough away to not be in a crowd. Elisabeth and Carlos... More

If you have an imagination and are excited by the unconventional, you must stay at El Sol. EVERYTHING was fun, from talking with Elizabeth (a German hippie via the Canary Islands) to the damn cute cabins, to the friends who cater to your needs and serve you meals. Monteverde is a gem for Costa Rica, and El Sol is the... More
