Reviewed 22 December 2012

We enjoyed to stay here, was really clean, we had good panaromic view and paid 60 usd for 3 person. It is family run one and stuff is really attentive. Good price for value hotel. Breakfast starts at 6:30 which is good cause days are short in Costa RIca

Room Tip: Upper floors have better view

Our 2 night stay in one of the cabinas was one of the best experiences of our 2 week visit to Costa Rica. We had an enclosed porch (picture windows with a view of the ridge and the Gulf of Nicoya) that we would recommend. The room was spacious & clean with private bath.The staff was extremely kind and helpful. Ronald provided unsolicited help when the battery on our rental 4x4 went dead, loaning me his tools, driving me and helping me with the battery. He, Jessica and Don Taco were all very helpful & professional, even making reservations at other hotels for us. Would certainly stay here again. A great bargain.

Room Tip: Get a cabina with an enclosed porch (it gets windy here).

I just returned from a Costa Rica trip with my sister. We stayed at don Taco for 7 nights while exploring the Monteverde area. It is a great place to stay, just up the hill from the center of Santa Elena. The cabinas are beautiful, with a great view of Santa Elena. Very convenient for dining in Santa Elena, with lots of choice very close, but just outside the bustle of the "downtown" Friendly, helpful staff
I will definitely stay again next time. Hasta proximo anjo, Ronald y Jessica!

We stayed 2 night in the cabinas and they are very basic. The room is not more than a bed and an old shower. We stayed in room 14 and it was the worst acomodation we had on our trip in Costa Rica. Altough the staf was very nice and friendly.

These guys can’t be beat for the price. The location is great, you’re a close enough to walk to the town and far enough out to have no problems. The view from the rooms is not to be beat. You won’t regret staying here. The breakfast is really nice.

Room Tip: get one of the cabins

My family and I were in the corner room on the top floor, nearst to the dirt road (less than 100 meters away.) So there were constantly cars and people going by, so it was very noisy. It, of course, did not help that the hotel room did not have thick walls, so it was diificult to fall asleep.
There was also the issue of mold. Which we found both in the room and the adjoining bathroom. (Totally Grody, it made my allergies start up again.)
And then there were the ants. Small little critters, but still disturbing when you see a line of them crawl of up your bedspead.
All in all, it wasn't very pleasant. The staff was very nice and helpful though. :)

We traveled for 3 weeks in Costa Rica and stayed at a variety of locations and establishments. I have to say that for the money, Don Taco gets a high five. The very friendly, helpful and bilingual staff, really give this place an extra star. From the moment that we arrived until we left, we were treated like honored guests. The rooms are basic but very clean and roomy. The shower is awesome - meaning in Costa Rica - it has REALLY warm water (if you've traveled in Costa Rica, you know what I'm talking about!!). This was a real treat after 10 days of cold showers!! Another bonus: breakfast included AND dirty clothes laundered at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms have a great view! Possible downside: no elevator.
