The other reviews say it all - a perfect host, fabulous views and clean comfortable rooms. The 'trail' through the grounds was a perfect way to start the day before breakfast and shouldn't be missed. One word of caution - the track up to the hotel is very steep making it a good 20 min walk back from the two...

We stayed a couple of nights. Room was nice, and very clean. Vitalis was a great host - we enjoyed talking to him and sharing stories. He was also a great resource for the area attractions and places to save a few dollars while getting good value. Nice extras were the really fast internet (can be fairly weak at some...

We stayed here for one night to see the cloud rainforest and go on a coffee/night tour. It was the perfect place to see the sunset and get some much needed sleep after a red eye. The host was great to talk to and gave us some helpful tips for our drive to Playa Grande. The breakfast that was included...

We had a great welcome by the owner Vitalis, a middle-aged man who has lived there for 50 years. He sure knows the place and the area : he drew us a very simple-but very accurate- map to drive down to the PanAm 1 via the most scenic drive we took during our stay in CR! thank you again Vitalis...

Our 2 night stay was great, Tours organised for us, great suggestions of what to do and how, delicious breakfast and the most stunning views. The room was basic but clean and the 3 beds suited our family of 4 perfectly.

If you are heading to Monteverde for the jungle and adventure, but appreciate some quality downtime I wholeheartedly recommend the Sunset Hotel. Owner / manager Vitalis Mengel was the quintessential jovial host for whom nothing was too much trouble. He arranged our sightseeing bookings with ease and made breakfasts to order, served along with the fabulous local fruit bread and...

Such a beautiful hotel with amazing views. I only wish we stayed longer! Vitalis is very helpful and there is a very friendly cat, Lucy, that we couldn't stop petting. The complimentary breakfast was the perfect way to start the day with different jams, bread, eggs, even hot chocolate! We loved our stay here. Very highly recommended. Viviendo en el...

Close to town, beautiful sunsets, views of Nicoya Bay, great hospitality including a communal breakfast. The owner, Vitalis, built the place, knows all the ins and outs of the area, and will graciously draw you a detailed map for anywhere you want to go! The grounds are large enough to include a nature trail (for a 40 minute hike) where...

The weather was not conducive, but the host did everything possible to make it as enjoyable as possible. He was pleasant and helpful. The sunset, between bouts of rain, was spectacular. The breakfast above average. The room simple, but clean and comfortable. We would stay there again. Good value for money.
