Our rooms were beautiful, and the breakfast was pleasant. Service was always super. No phone and no wifi in room was a little challenging but worked. The staff gave advice about transport to local areas. Rooms were huge and clean. We enjoyed easy walks down to town and cheap taxi back, and stops by many shuttles for attractions at this...

A wonderful view and simmering sunset while sitting outside our room. Comfortable seating provided outside to really appreciate what is on offer. The rooms are enormous, with two huge beds and a huge shower room. Our hair drier was missing but on request was quickly provided. The room was clean and towels were exchanged daily. It is a long way...

The rooms are huge and so is the shower. There is no wifi in the rooms are ours had an off smell I could not identify. There are NO temperature controls at all. It's a very long walk down to the lobby and the only wifi is down there. The beds were hard, the walls were thin, and my bedspread...

Stayed in the upper level lodges which I can highly recommend for one thing the view of the Pacific Ocean is stunning. Sitting watching the sunset sipping a glass of wine watching the world go by what more do you want!

Simple, rustic, bordering on Spartan. Uncomfortable bed. Hot tubs not working. Limited buffet for breakfast, but some vegetarian fare. Wi-Fi in lobby only which was not convenient given the hike between the rooms and the lobby.

We were changed to this hotel - upgraded even and this was literal, though we didn't know it till we got there. We drove from Fortuna in our 4x4 taking the shorter route over the mountain tops using rough dirt roads. the views were spectacular. Checking in we were told to wait for the hotel driver to guide us to...

I would happily stay at this hotel again, though it is not perfect. One must remember that this hotel is located in a very isolated location in a small, poor country. The activities at Monteverde are well worth the struggle to get there. I presume that most consumer supplies must travel the same rough and twisty roads that we did...

We booked the family suite for 2 nights to experience the beauty of the cloud forest and the amazing zip lines. When we received our room, the shower was covered in mold and the bathroom smelt foul even with the window open. When I turned on the water for the sink, it came out brown (didn't clear up even after...

We stayed 2 nights here while visiting the cloud forest, a coffee plantation and doing a night nature hike. The room was spacious with a great bathroom. It was a big climb up the hill to our room, so it's important not to forget anything in the room! There was no fridge, so forget having your own cold beer in...

Nice hotel for teens, rooms with 2 kings, so each teen had plenty of space. Not fancy, but comfortable and convenient for quick stay. Locally owned and family operated, they had good service. We had pickups planned for hiking Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve and Selvatura zip lines(both great). Breakfast was quite good, and started early enough that we benefited. Dinners were...
