The rooms in this hotel are on a mountainside and the room allocated to us (I am 65 years old) was a 10 minute walk up an incline of 1 in 4 - they do provide a shuttle service. The rooms are huge with two queen size beds. Bathroom is also huge - bath and separate shower. Minimal toiletries provided. Corridors are extremely noisy from time to time. Lunch in the restaurant by reception was very mediocre - one of the worst experienced in Costa Rica. Luckily there are a couple of local restaur... Read more

Like many other reviewers, we were here for a couple of nights to visit the rainforest. We were not part of a group. Checkin was half-hearted. The receptionist wasn't very interested, and was continually distracted by ringing phones. We were never given a plan or a description of the property, so we left without knowing about, let alone seeing, the spa, the peacocks, the Zips, the canopy, the hiking trails. We actually feel resentful to have missed all this. We were in one of the lower blocks,... Read more

Hotel covers a massive area on a very steep hill. Use the shuttle to her about at night as no lighting. It's very steep-imagine slippy if wet. Off season book shuttle in advance as they don't run as many. Massive rooms. Relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of wildlife just in the grounds of the hotel. Stunning setting. Breakfast good choice at the bottom of the hotel site. Pool small but refreshing.

We arrived here after a 3 hour journey : no 'welcome drink' as we had had in every other hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica. Check-in was ok (but details on where breakfast was served were inaccurate) but then we were left to lug our own luggage back to the front entrance to get a mini-bus to our room : no mean feat when the whole area is cobbled. The driver dropped us and vaguely pointed in the direction of the room - again, we were left to carry 3 cases down 2 flights of stairs and along a cobbl... Read more

Compared to other hotels we have stayed in in Costa Rica, El Establo was far below expectations. It is based on a steep hill, so not very accessible without their mini bus service. The room was dark, lighting was terrible (in both bathroom and bedroom), bed was comfortable although had a horrible duvet/quilt on the top - we did wonder if they forgot the covers, but apparently not. Corridors were not well insulated and therefore every noise was reflected into the room, even with bathroom windo... Read more

Stayed here with my sister last week. Gorgeous grounds, and the history of the hotel is fantastic. " During the Korean War (early 1950‚??s), a group of 40 Quakers decide to leave their native USA, running away from the punishment they had to endure by not sending their sons to war. That‚??s why they decided to look for new opportunities in life, in a country that offered the tranquility they were looking for. After a brief look, they decided to come to Costa Rica (who abolished the army in 1948)... Read more

This is definitely one of the largest hotel property I have stayed in . The hotel starts from the main road and our room 828 was far inside. Imagine our taxi ride inside was a whole 5 mins . The view from our room was fantastic. The room and specially the bathroom is very tastefully done. BUT they have two tiny glasses is all they have . No tea or coffee maker . Not even a hot water kettle. We asked for coffee mugs and all they could give us was small tea cups. Room has no A/C or fan. No pa... Read more

Our room was good size and the bed was comfortable. The sink in the bathroom was very high. This is a mountain hotel and there was no air conditioning in our room. High up at the front and back of the room were open windows to let cool air in. That was ok, but it was humid. Cool but humid. The open windows also let in sound from outside, including other guests talking and moving about. The blocks of rooms are scattered up the mountain, so there is a wonderful view from every room.

Pros: One of the larger properties in Monteverde. Excellent food & bar onsite. High up on hill so nice views when sky was clear. Very good service. Cons: No A/C and no room fans. Had to keep vents open to outside porch and bathroom vents open to outside corridor to get some air circulation. This setup allows a lot of bugs to get into room and you can hear noise from rooms all around you and the corridor. Rooms have very poor lighting, I assume in an effort to "go green" but this was ridiculous... Read more

Monteverde has its own unique charm in the cloud forest. A rocky drive to get there, but when you do, it feels like the you have arrived in an artist community in a way, with coop arts, coffee shops, and a yoga studio. The people are lovely. The walk through the rain forest pretty. But while the staff couldn't be nicer and more accommodating (A++), we weren't wowed by the rooms. That said, the dinner was superb! Then again, we weren't in Costa Rica to sit in our rooms! It is safe, clean and fi... Read more

Beautiful and well maintained property. The rooms are HUGE and it felt more like a cabin up in Tahoe than a hotel. The property itself is also huge but there are complimentary shuttles that take you around the property. They came in about 5-10 minutes after calling. The property also featured many free amenities (tennis, swimming, soccer etc) and a few tours that were reasonably priced. We did the night tour (highly recommneded). We were hoping to do the zipline tour, however there was a thunder... Read more
