We stayed there for two nights. It's a very peaceful place. My cabin was in good condition however the bed sheets were not soft and kind of dusty. No tv however wifi was very good. Closed to Santa Elena downtown if you have a car. A bit difficult to get there because of the unpaved roads. the reception is on...

At first I was taken aback by how isolated the cabins were from the actual downtown Saint Elena city. But staying here was a wonderful way to kick off my trip. The cabin was rustic and clean. The view directly outside my door was breathtaking; you could see the waves of mist and fog come and go, enveloping the mountains....

Stayed at Cabin 7. A basic, clean room with a double bed and one twin bed. What we really enjoyed was the view and all the greenery that surrounded us. It is very close to good restaurants (walkable) and the main street at Santa Elena. This place is great for a short stay.

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed ourselves. It's just down the road from Selvatura (ziplining/canopy tours) and up the hill from Santa Elena/Monteverde....so in other words is a convenient place to stay. Our cabina slept 5 comfortably and offered a great view of the valley and coast below. The main lodge is close to all the other cabinas...

Let me preface this by saying, I really enjoyed my 3 days at the Cabinas. I was in Cabina 6. The Good: The staff are wonderful! So warm, sweet and caring. The views: breathtaking. The "Tipico" Breakfast: eggs, beans and rice, fried plantain, fruit, coffee and OJ...home-y, traditional, delicious!!! The grounds: meticulously groomed and lovingly cared for. The location: Far-away-nearby....

My two friends and I stayed in Cabina 4. It was comfortable with great windows and a view. The side window looks out in the jungle and we saw interesting birds and even a coati one morning. Despite the gravel road leading to the place which is typical of everywhere in Santa Elena, we liked being in this quiet location...

The cabin we stayed in had 4 bedrooms and was very comfortable. The kitchen had enough supplies to do all our cooking. The staff was very friendly and helped us out with the key problem right away and helped us with bookings.

Costa Rica can be really funny. This is a lovely lodge: cozy cabins (we had #3) , reasonably equipped kitchenettes in some, lovely hardwood and tile with lots of big windows, great pillows and mattress, very pretty landscaped grounds. And yet, despite all the attention to aesthetic details, the basics of plumbing and electrical seem to be an afterthought. Our...

A great view from the hilltop and a cute little patio and yard. The cabin interior was more plain but functional and clean and with plenty of windows. The staff was very helpful in figuring out activities to do in the area. This review is for cabin 4. The adjacent cabin 3 would have identical view and yard, the other...

Enjoyed our visit, this location close to zip lines and other activities. Not an easy walk, would recommend using taxis from the area if not driving. Roads are kinda rough and no sidewalks. Several good places to eat close by. Friendly helpful staff, rooms were clean. No AC but not really needed in the mountains.
