Beautiful hotel. Very friendly staff. Amazing pool. The food was amazing too. The only negative was the drive which we expected from reading other reviews. It’s a little rough up there.

10/10 Exceptional

This hotel is close enough to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve that you can walk there from the hotel. The staff were pleasant and provided efficient service. A great place to stay.

4/10 Fair

The rooms and hotel demonstrated on Expedia is NOT what they put us in upon check in. We ended up staying in an old, poorly renovated concrete and wooden structure (instead of the large two story concrete hotel in the photos on the listing). The room was full of ants and smelled terribly of floor wax and cleaning products. Every time the wind blew it sounded like the roof was going to blow off and you can see daylight between the old walls and the “new” wooden additional walls. Had we known the poor quality of the room we would be staying in we would have never made the reservation, especially for the high price; we feel very deceived. Food was good at breakfast and staff was very friendly otherwise.

2/10 Poor

Property is run down, but prices are extra premium for the area. They want to force you to book activities with only limited vendors, guaranteeing that you pay twice the price for the same activities. Food costs on the property are way too high, and simply going downtown gets better food at 1/3 the price.
