Hotel Cipreses provides a clean, well maintained property just up the hill in Santa Elena not far from Monteverde. On our arrival after a rocky and dusty drive from La Fortuna, Jose greeted us with cold fruit drinks while we checked in.
Shortly after we settled in, the garderner pointed out a huge sloth up in the trees. We watched it from the porch outside our room as it moved from branch to branch in search of food. Dinner was a 5 minute stroll down the hill to the Sabor Tico.
Breakfast starts at 7 and was included in our room rate. I think it's 7 USD per person if not. It's a buffet so there are several options including fresh fruits - was wonderful.
We only stayed a night ahead of our ziplining tour the next morning, but it is an ideal spot for quiet away from the road and the small town down the hill. Just make sure you ask for a room away from others so that you're not disturbed by their noise when they get up early in the morning.
