Beautiful buildings, nice rooms, friendly staff, great breakfast. We didn't know what to expect ahead of time, having picked this hotel based on price and availability. When we pulled up, we thought,"wow, we made a great choice". The woman at the front desk spoke english and helped us book both a
zipline and coffee/nighttime tour quickly and easily. Our room had a queen and twin bed, high ceilings, a really nice patio and hot shower! Breakfast was made to order and was delicious. There was a nice seating area while we waited for our tours. We were bummed to check out and leave the lodge and Monteverde.
Don't be discouraged by the driveway leading up to the hotel- we were really worried until we saw the lodge come into view!
The only downside is that Santa Elena is really the place to be for restaurants and shops and activity. However, we were able to take a cab thy was only about 4$ US back with no problem.
Pack warmly and don't forget a rain jacket! MV was frio!
