Heliconia Hotel
Ranked #20 of 20 Hotels in Monteverde
Reviewed December 2, 2004

we only spent one night. room was nice, huge beds, beautiful views. hot water when necessary. the power went down for a few hours. restaurant is expensive and food is average, we recommend something else down the street or in town. hot tubs were empty, and looked like they havent been used in the last couple of months at least. there are a lot of hotels in monteverde, for any budget, heliconia is one of the 3 on top and still averagely priced. my score would have been drastically lower, but considering theyre in the middle of the jungle i think theyre doing pretty well.

The hotel staff was not very helpful. Said they would do something for you and disappeared never to be seen again. On the wild ride for dollars - don't expect them to be around when the ride is over. The restaurant was expensive and the food was terrible. Rooms above reception are not secure; poor locks, windows on empty, dark hallways. Maintenance workers and renovations start early. Many other choices in the area - don't waste your money here.

The hotel staff does not speak much English, and is not very helpful. The restaurant was expensive and the food was terrible. We stayed in the "new" building which was rustic and NOISY! It is also quite an uphill hike from the lobby to this building. Monteverde is a windy city, and the building provides no protection from the wind. It does get chilly at night. There were also gardeners and maintenance workers hammering at 6 am. The tiny "jacuzzi" was empty. There are plenty of nicer looking hotels in the area, don't waste time or money here.
