We spent one night at this hotel as part of a fly-drive package. This is a moderately large hotel complex which has several kinds of accomodations, from spartan to mid-range, housed in about a dozen buildings. All of them overlook the descending landscape with a beautiful view that extends all the way to the Gulf of Nicoya on the Pacific. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive from the entrance to the Monteverde Preserve.
The service at the front desk was great. They assisted us in plotting our route south to Manuel Antonio, and advised us on our ability to make the journey to the next gas station near CR1 since there is no gasoline available in Monteverde or Santa Elena.
There are limited and expensive dining options nearby and in Santa Elena, which is only a 10 minute walk. We decided to eat at the hotel restaurant, the food and service were very good, and reasonably priced for the quality. Our breakfast was included and was also excellent.
The rooms in the main building are roomy, clean, and comfortable. They all have a balcony looking towards the Pacific, which is a great view if it's clear enough. There's TV channels in several languages, too.
I recommend this hotel as a good value and a fine base camp to explore the area.
