El Sol Verde is a simple place. As far as I understood, it offers 3 rooms (and some additional huts and campground). The rooms are basic and have everything you need. Accordingly, the owners charge a reasonably basic price, making this a very good price/quality tradeoff. The hotel is located on the road to Rincón de la Vieja, and there are a couple of other hotels on this road. However, at the time of our booking, all these hotels appeared to be much more expensive. As explained on their website, breakfast is available at a charge, but we did not try it.
The owners of the place are very friendly, and are doing pretty well in creating a hospitile environment. Upon arrival, Ingrid explained a lot on the town of Curubandé and the Rincón de la Vieja national park.
The hotel offers free wifi, but only at limited times (in the morning and in the evening). I initially considered this a bit strange, 'till I learned that due to its remote location, the hotel has to offer wifi over a 3G dongle. Having this in mind, the owners' choice makes perfect sense. Nevertheless, this could be a disadvantage if you want to spend your entire holiday online 24/7.
