We arrived at El Establo at about 1500hrs and we seriously thought we were the only people booked in. The place was dead. One of the restaurants was closed, one of the pools advertised and pictured was closed and empty (didn't look great) and as we did a little drive round the hotel (it's massive so you have to drive), we saw one other couple. In my opinion this hotel is massively overpriced. We stayed in some amazing hotels in la fortuna and Guanacaste for a fraction of the price so was disappo... Read more

Overall, a great hotel for the price. The rooms are clean and spacious and offer great views. The hotel is on the side of a mountain and the buildings are separate going up the mountain. We were lucky to be in the first building and closest to reception and the exit but I think I would have been less thrilled being higher up the mountain (which also requires a provided shuttle to come down). We ate at the "fast" restaurant twice purely out of convenience and it was fine, food was very average. T... Read more

Let me start by saying the hotel is in a spectacular location. High atop a mountain with panoramic vistas of the Pacific Ocean as well as lush green tropical rain forests you are mesmerized by all of the tranquility and beauty. Rooms are spacious and each have a private balcony for the view described above. Nicely furnished and comfortable. There is no heat or AC in room but frankly you would never need the AC because of nice constant breezes. Nites can be cool (you are at around 5-6,000 fe... Read more

They are some nice things about this hotel - we had a family suite which was over two floors and nice views looking out over the town and beyond. The outdoor pool was being renovated whilst we were there (it was too cold and rainy to use it anyway0 and another one that is semi inside - has a terrace with lovely views over the countryside and although it is not huge, it is a nice pool and lounge area. The restaurant at the top of the hotel grounds by a small lake was very nice - good ambience an... Read more

El Establo has a good location with outstanding views and large rooms.... but it pretty much ends there. Terrible in room lighting, no AC or fans (I did get one when I asked for one) no screens, no Patio chairs , no wi-fi, took an hour to get ice to the room and all this from one of the most expensive hotels in The area.

El Establo is considered as the higher end hotel in Monteverde, with swimming pool, gym, bar, 2 restaurants and its own spa so that was part of the reason I picked this hotel. The hotel rooms are all in the low rise with some duplex suites spread in multiple areas along the mountain. There are shuttle buses available for guests to access to different areas and facilities, or I think is easy to walk around from top of the mountain to the entrance within 15-20 minutes time. I stayed in the delu... Read more

Very disappointed in this property. Booked room five months ago and ended up with a room in the lower level (basement). Room had a sewer smell that permeated the entire room and as we prepaid we were unable to check out early. In addition, the lighting was poor in both the room as well as the bathroom and the stair area down to our room. Atmosphere was unwelcoming all the way around.

This hotel is truly terrible and if I could give it zero stars I would, so the 1 star is for the lovely views. We were greeted at the reception by a grumpy girl who claimed we did not have a reservation, we should have walked away at this stage and thanked our lucky stars, the signs were ominous when we saw notes everywhere saying there was no refund for early check out, the was certainly the sensible option, however we foolishly persisted and 15 minutes later our names were found. I was told I... Read more

El Establo is situated on the side of a mountain overlooking the beautiful Monteverde cloud forest. The 9 lodges are on the reachable by a shuttle bus and walking is not really a choice due to the steep hills. once you call for a ride, it takes about 10 for the shuttle to arrive to deliver you to the office or restaurant. The rooms are large and well supplied and have a great views of the forest. The breakfast buffet is abundant and loaded with fruits. The location is great for the many availabl... Read more

So my wife says "we should just chill when we get there" I didn't expect 61 deg f with no heat.. a very very cold night later... actually I liked this place a lot. The food was tasty and well prepared, the staff was attentive, and despite a problem with the room we were assigned, we had a good time. Loved visiting the nearby tours. Had dinner at the restaurant twice. Really good. With a couple of mess ups.. getting 4:5 is really impressive.. I thought this place was cool ;)
