I stayed at the Altura in April 2012 for a night as I was touring the country. Everything was fantastic. The price was reasonable, the room was well designed and furnished and the hosts were very accommodating, and spoke English very very well. The free breakfast in the morning was very nice as well.
Just remember if you stay here that is is considerably cooler at this elevation than if one was at or near the ocean or at a lower altitiude. A sweater or light jacket may be in order especially in the evening. When I got there the in the afternoon the temperature was 14C.
If you are going to Poas and want to stay on the mountain this is the place!
