Nice stay, great location

This was a very nice hotel with a great location in Monteverde, close proximity to Santa Elana. The walls are very thin in the hotel, meaning you can hear everything that others in your hallway are doing. Included breakfast was great, and staff was pleasant.

Visit local eateries in Santa Elana (walking distance). Sabor Tico was our favorite- an entire dinner with drinks and desert for $20!

Pricey but nice

It's a very nice hotel, but expensive compared to others we stayed at in Costa Rica. The restaurant especially - not enough value options, although the food was admittedly delicious.

Lovely Vacation Spot

It's a long bumpy ride to Santa Elena from anywhere, but it's such a unique and beautiful area that it is worth the trip. Staff is friendly and helpful, the hotel grounds are lovely, and the weather is... the weather. You're so high up that there is a constant breeze (which did wake us up a few times during the night).

Enjoyable mountain hotel

upon arrival, my family and I received a warm welcome. the hotel was clean and friendly. The rooms were huge and most importantly, very clean. The hotel provides shuttles to get to other parts of the hotel since its very spread out. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Monteverde, but not the restaurant. The breakfast was good, but the dinning experience was not the best. Overly priced and a long wait time. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the city of Santa Elena so you could easily walk. There's not a lot to do in Monteverde so 2 days is just enough. While there, I visited the cloud forest, which was simply amazing. It can get a bit chilly in Monteverde so I could recommend bringing pants and a heavy sweater. A great experience overall!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Cloud Forest is simply amazing. I paid for a tour guide, however it is not necessary. Although expensive, I would recommend getting a tour guide because it would be pointless to walk the forest and not know what animals or species your passing by.
