Immersed in greenery, great view from the room, small but heated pool blending with its surrounding (calm, quiet), excellent restaurant and service. Local guide - Mr Rodibert Martinez - employed by the hotel is second to none: passionate, knowledgeable and very very nice (we did a private twilight tour as well as the Monteverde Cloud Forest private tour with him). Reception and service staff: all excellent. I also recommend the Sky Adventure activities (trek and zip wires: if there is a place to do this, it's there: fun and beautiful views over the forest).
The grounds a beautiful and you are truly immersed in Monteverde’s spectacular ecosystems. The property is rustic, but welcoming and still luxurious. The restaurant is delicious, if on the more expensive side for the area. Not to be missed: both the pool and butterfly garden.
Great location and beautiful hotel. The gardens and trails on site were lovely. The restaurant on site also had good food and a very good very breakfast. Good affordable drinks. It was nicely decorated and had a good natural and modern feel to it. There were many restaurants and shops within walking distance.
Very overpriced. If you leave a light on in your room and do not close the curtains bugs will try and most likely get in, but hey you are in the jungle (even with the screen door shut).
Restaurant food and drinks of high quality. Amazing location with its own nature trails. Very clean. Great service from staff.
Dated bathroom and small beds
We had an upstairs room with a small balcony which was clean and comfortable. The pool was nice and the front desk staff was friendly. The food in the restaurant was good.
I’ve never written a negative review before, but this property in general looks tired and the feeling is not genuine or welcoming at all compared to all the other places we stayed in our 3 1/2 week trip to Costa Rica. For that reason, we found it totally overpriced and not a good value. When you pull into the entrance parking, large signs warn you of potential theft if you leave anything in your car. In the bath, there is a snarky printed sign telling you to use plastic water bottles if you want to “support the plastic industry”. Both those messages could be conveyed, as they are at many hotels around the country, in a much more pleasant and professional way. When we wanted to have lunch on a deck outside where a nice sign invited you to order your lunch to be delivered there, the surly guy in the restaurant acted like it was a complete mystery what we were talking about. At breakfast half an hour before they stopped serving, staff was already stacking chairs at the tables right next to us and we had to keep asking for coffee rather than being offered it. The whole place had a feeling of being jaded and no longer trying....it seems like the kind of place you go to to experience none of the culture of Costa Rica, only jaded employees (with the exception of the front desk) who speak English. It seemed to us that Costa Rica Expeditions is riding on their laurels... Monteverde gets crowds regardless of facilities or service so no need to go above and beyond (or even be polite in some cases). Additionally, we saw a Costa Rica Expeditions van near Tenorio National Park where the driver/guide was whistling (like an eagle) to get a 3-toed sloth to move.... completely environmentally unacceptable and disappointing from a company that bills itself as environmentally sensitive. A disappointment and we would not return.
