Monteverde was our first stop of the 8 night trip to Costa Rica. Our group of 11 reserved 3 rooms. We hired a van to take us to the hotel from the airport and it took our driver at least a half an hour to find the hotel. For some reason the hotel is not on some of the Santa Elena maps and the driver confused it with the Monteverde Gardens Lodge. I gave the overall 4 stars because I specifically chose and reserved 3 rooms through Hotels.com with one double and 2 single beds each and then confirmed with the hotel via email and was promised roll away beds, we were given 3 rooms with 2 double beds each on arrival. We were told they could not give us roll away beds. The beds in our rooms were more like king size beds, so we all were able to fit just fine. We had a corner room #73, right on the way to the restaurant and the office and it was pretty noisy from the wind and from other hotel guests passing by. We spent most of our time hiking and were so tired at night so that didn't bother us much. If you are planning to spend more time at the hotel ask for ether a second floor room or at the part of the hotel that is further away from the restaurant.
Were didn't have time to use either a pool or a restaurant at Poco a Poco - the sister property, as we spent mornings and afternoons hiking and it was too cold and windy to go there in the evenings. The breakfast was included and we thought it was very good, served in a hotel's restaurant. It included fruits (papaya, pineapple), orange juice, cheese, fruit yogurt, scrambled eggs, some kind of sausage we didn't try, rice and beans, jams, breads, coffee and/or tea.
