Fonda Vela has a great location near the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. We had a junior suite with a nice sitting area overlooking the grounds. The pool and restaurant were close by. Although there were other rooms attached, the accommodations seemed private. It's a short cab ride to town if you're interested but we had most of our meals at the hotel restaurant. The food offered at the breakfast buffet and at the restaurant in the evening was very good.
There is a beautiful pool with a bar and hot tub. The poolside sunset views were spectacular.
We booked an early morning tour of the cloud forest at the front desk. It's only about a 5 minute cab ride from the hotel. I highly recommend this excursion. Be sure to get a guide to get the most out of the hike.
The staff and service at the hotel and restaurant was great. If you are travelling to Monteverde, Fonda Vela is a nice place to stay.
