The rooms and grounds are really nice and exotic. Staff are really friendly and accommodating. Rooms include a bar fridge and TV. The grounds are quite scenic and include a pool and jaccuzi. The only negative experience I had here was finding a cockroach running across my pillow. The wifi connection was also not showing up on my phone in...

Good morning! After reading your review I must ask if you haven't confused our hotel, Las Orquideas in Monteverde with another establishment. The main reason that I ask this is that you mention we offer a pool and jacuzzi and that the rooms all have TVs... all 3 of these statements are false! We do not have a pool, nor...

Stayed here in Nov 2014. We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were comfy and breakfast very filling. The daily visits from the coati's and monkeys were amusing to watch from the kitchen area. Good value while in the area. Nidia was very helpful with local information and history.

This was the best hotel experience of my trip to Costa Rica. Nidia was very helpful in planning our activities during the 3 days my husband and I were in the Monteverde area. She booked several tours for us, and even changed our reservations when we were delayed in arriving due to weather. A hearty breakfast is included, with a...

Management: 5/5 Nidia is great! We had to cancel two of our three days last minute due to an illness and she was very accommodating. She even refunded the days, even though it was last minute. She was very nice when we did check in. She also helped us book some things while we were here and seemed very willing...

The rooms were basic, breakfast ok, standard one, not far from restaurants and shops in case you have no car. - very thin walls so you can hear neighbor conversations. Rooms are close to lobby area so you can hear all the noise from kitchen, reception or breakfast area. I wouldn't recomand this hotel to those looking to sleep well...

The staff was wonderful, clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was delicious. Reception helped make recommendations. Just outside of the busy town so it was quiet at night but close enough to feel the energy of town. Great start to our vacation.

We stayed for three nights with our two young boys. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Very helpful in offering suggestions about places and sites but not pushy at all.
