We enjoyed a two-night stay at this hotel, just outside the centre of Santa Elena. It was just adjacent to a large new local mall that had a good supermercado and several restaurants nearby. On arrival, we were warmly greeted with a cold beverage then the concierge told us about the features of the property. Our room was quite spacious...

Dear Canadakat. Thank you for such a nice review on our property and its features, I believe you have summarized very nicely our essence: service, location, added values and comfort.

The staff was very nice to us & we were greeted with a cool welcome drink. Stayed on fourth floor (#47). We had a car so we parked at the second floor entrance & bellman took luggage to our room. It was very pretty. Nice bathroom, big shower, plenty of hot water, even a lighted magnified makeup mirror. Breakfast was...

The hotel is situated half way between the village of Monteverde and the Natural Reserve of the Cloud Forest. The rooms are a bit old, but nevertheless, comfortable. No lift to get to the first floor makes a bit painful to carry the luggage, until we discovered that there is a way of going from the room to the reception...

We stayed here Dec. 22 & 23, 2013, as part of a 10-day Gate 1 tour. It was a letdown after the terrific Volcano Lodge & Gardens in Arenal.

Dear Futuremauian: Thank you for your comments on Monteverde, we are very glad you enjoyed the area and the drive up here. You are right with your perception of Monteverde being a much more developed area despite the fact of absence of government’s infrastructure and better access conditions. It has been in hands of the Monteverde people to create a...

Hello JP, we have fixed our BIG PROBLEM, we just doubled the water heating capacity of our systems and now, we have a much better response.

We stayed as family here for 3 nights - I will say that the hotel itself has a rustic feel to it, it's very 'green' which we really liked - unfortunately the hot tub was cold as the heater was broken.
