My first experience at the Cabinas was making the drive into the 'car park'. Was I ever glad we had a 4x4. Its a steep ascent but achievable. Its certainly in keeping with the off road drive up to Monteverde.
The girl was very helpful on check in and we ended up in a basic but clean room. As mentioned by people before there is a mind boggling array of warning notices around the B&B. A little bit over the top for my liking but I can only assume they've had problems with people doing things like drying clothes with a hair dryers or cleaning their shoes with towels. Now I never had any intention of watching TV whilst in such a beautiful place but I did turn it on after we came back from dinner and drinks and only 2 channels had anything but white snow. Probably not even worth offering a TV when it doesn't really work. The mattress in our room was rock hard and presented us with a bit of an awkward sleep but for some it could be a bonus.
The breakfast was small but tasty and the coffee was good. They helped us arrange a zip line trip that was awesome and they showed us all the options rather than pushing one product which is always good.
This is certainly a pretty rustic place, which I did expect for the price, and it has its faults but on the whole I enjoyed my time here and Monteverde is definitely worth a visit
