There was a couple rooms available when we arrived and he gave us the option of either which was very nice. there is an AMAZING view of the sunset...

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.

Wonderful location very close to town with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and the ocean. A huge 15 acre property with trails, lots of big trees and a stream. Although all of these items easily make it worth the great nightly rate, it's the owners who will WOW you. Extremely friendly and honest. They were eager to help...

It's secluded away from town with a view of the bay. It's on the top of a hill and has little to no light pollution. We were able to see the milky way and it was amazing. The owner is a German man who bought this property and runs a great, small hotel. There is a really great trail in...

Stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Monteverde. The owner is very friendly and accommodating, and usually on site during the day. There is a security person at night. The rooms are clean and comfy, the hotel is basic but with amazing views and a nice trail to walk. Would stay here again!

On a lark, my boyfriend and I decided to to drive inland from Brasilito to do some Cloud Forest hiking. We aren't the best at planning ahead, so we just drove without a map, wifi, or place to stay. Luckily, we stumbled upon the Sunset Hotel. The young man who owns it was very polite and helpful upon our arrival....
