Stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Monteverde. The owner is very friendly and accommodating, and usually on site during the day. There is a security person at night. The rooms are clean and comfy, the hotel is basic but with amazing views and a nice trail to walk. Would stay here again!

On a lark, my boyfriend and I decided to to drive inland from Brasilito to do some Cloud Forest hiking. We aren't the best at planning ahead, so we just drove without a map, wifi, or place to stay. Luckily, we stumbled upon the Sunset Hotel. The young man who owns it was very polite and helpful upon our arrival.... More

This is the best deal in Monte Verde ,or anywhere close. You feel like your in Colorado,or Hawaii ,on the side of a gentle slooping mountain. The wind blows enough,so it's cool in the evening,but not too cool. The German manager,cooks a breakfast for all the guests every morning,and the service is great. A very quiet place to stay,and i'm... More

Originally stayed here in 2003 with my husband on our first trip to Costa Rica. Now, 13 years later, my mom and I stayed here--still a great budget option for the Monteverde region after all these years! Great hiking path behind the property, beautiful views, wonderful breakfast (included!), parking, central location, and great host. Please note this is not the... More

This is a great, inexpensive, clean, basic place for budget travel, includes breakfast, with views of the hills. (My husband had planned this 2nd trip to Costa Rica for 7 of our friends, primarily for birding but with other options as well.) The Sunset Hotel is just outside of town on a dirt road hill so it is quiet except... More

This is a great place to stay, the host Vitalis is one of the best hosts I have ever come across, you will almost feel at home. There is a trail and also the sunsets are apparently great, it was very cloudy during our stay so we couldn't experience much.

If you want to get away from the crowds for a quiet, relaxing stay, this is the place! It's approximately a 5 minute drive away from the center of Santa Elena, and it has beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. I awoke every morning to the sounds of birds chirping out my window, and the room was lovely and quaint.... More

Vitales, the owner, was extremely accommodating and helpful in booking our zip line adventure and sunset horse ride with Martin. Breakfast is great (fresh eggs and bread amazing), wifi is fast, and the place is perfect and well priced. He has been in the area for 50 years and can point you in the right direction for whatever it is... More

Had a great stay. Everyone was very friendly!!! Would definitely stay again. I would probably rent a 4 wheel drive next time though. The sunsets were really awesome and there was a hiking trail and interesting wildlife.

This little hotel a few minutes outside of Santa Elena was great for the two of us. It's a short way up a steep road off the main road, but not hard to find or get to... this is Monteverde after all and you'll be used to the roads by the time you arrive. There's a sign on the main... More
