We made a reservation for a single room with two beds at the Jardines. When we arrived we discovered the quality of the rooms. Very small, dirty (girlfriend found a cockroach in a bed) and very humid (smelled like moisture and fungus). The room was dark and not well lit. My girlfriend who is asthmatic had difficulty breathing in the room, probably because of all the fungus spores in the air there.
So we had to complain and change the room. The service was comprehensive (reason why i'm not giving only one star) and they moved us to a small bungalow. However : we were in december and the place was VERY cold with no heating. Monteverde is very windy so all night long the wind made a lot of noise as if the roof of the room was going to collapse, and we had branches, scraching loudly at the window. And the place was extremely humid.
I have been to at least ten different places in Costa Rica on a one month trip, and this was the worst experience.
I am also very skeptical of all the nice reviews here (they strangely all sound the same). All of them praise the breakfast... it is the usual Costa Rican breakfast... nothing different. The service was ok at least, but not exceptional either.
Could this be that someone is making partial reviews, friends of the owner maybe ?
Do not trust the good reviews here. There are way better ways to spend your money in Monteverde !
