This was the perfect place to stay for our adventures in Monteverede. The owners were so friendly and helpful. Both speak English which was great for us since we don't speak Spanish. I believe in addition to English and Spanish, they speak Italian as he is from Italy. The room was average in size and appearance. The bathrooms are a bit small, but modern and very clean. It was perfect for this trip since most of our times was spent outside. We stayed two nights. The breakfasts were cooked fresh each morning and featured different items. The breakfast/eating area has a wonderful view for miles. At night, they gave us plenty of recommendations for restaurants which are very close to the hotel (some are even within walking distance if you don't mind a bit of a hill). It can be a little windy at night and the hill up to the hotel is pretty steep. The owners are very knowledgeable about the various activities (zip lines, ATVs, night walks, etc.) in the area and the companies that provide services. I appreciated the fact that they didn't try to push any particular company, but instead provided costs of activities and brochures so we could make an informed decision. Once we decided on an activity and company, we were free to go have fun. They took care of the rest, making the reservations for us. We had fun on the night walk and saw quite a few animals that we didn't see during the day (viper, tarantula, fox, sleeping birds, etc.) Be sure to ask about the strangler fig up the hill from the hotel. We had an hour to blow one day so she told us how to get to the tree. It was amazing and completely free. Don't miss it!!!
