Very clean, spacious rooms with private balcony, close to town, ample parking. Quiet area. On site restaurant was very good. We enjoyed delicious wood fired pizza, fresh pasta every night. Sunset views of long western landscape very beautiful. Would definitely recommend. We were well taken care of by Jose and Gustavo. In town, we also enjoyed Choco Cafe and Restaurant which is easy to overlook. Fabulous tree top views and good pizza, bakery items. Ample parking.

We booked this hotel for our Costa Rican adventure and couldn't have been more pleased. Jose personally greeted us at check-in, showed us a map of the town and gave us great recommendations. He walked us to our car and helped us bring in our luggage. The room was very clean and cozy. The views were awesome! The food and service from the restaurant attached to the hotel was outstanding. The hotel is located just outside the downtown area, which was great for us. It felt very safe. It was very quiet, yet we were only 5 minutes drive from all of the downtown activities and 10-15 minutes from all of the activities and tours we attended. It was truly the best of both worlds. If you are considering visiting Monteverdi, lol no further than Hotel Tropico. You will not be disappointed.

Great rooms, beautiful views, really kind host and everything to a very fair price. And also a great European style restaurant. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the sunset with the beautiful view. The pizza in the hotel was delicious. I can only recommend this hotel.

We spent 3 days at this fantastic hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable with a spectacular view of the mountains and cloud formations. José was an excellent host who went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. A massage by his wife, Joanna, was an added luxury to this great stay. The on site restaurant served delicious Italian food with an extensive wine list. We will definitely return in the future. When booking a room do so directly via the hotel to get a complimentary breakfast. Muchos gracias José for the great holiday.

This was one of our favorite places that we stayed at during our visit to Costa Rica! Absolutely stunning views and best place to enjoy a drink and watch the amazing sunset in Monteverde!!! We also had dinner here on 2 nights and the pizza and pasta was better than what we had on our recent trip to Italy. You won't be disappointed if you stay here!

My husband and I spent three fantastic nights of our honeymoon at Hotel Tropico. Jose (owner) and Gustavo were very present on the grounds, going above and beyond to make our stay extra special and always easily accessible for good conversation and recommendations. Jose made fires every night at sunset and was very pleasant. Gustavo booked all of our activities and served us every night. They truly pride themselves with this hotel and it is obvious why. The restaurant was fantastic. The rooms are very comfortable. The view is even better in person. I wouldn’t consider any other property in Monteverde and cannot wait to come back. Pura Vida!

We recently stayed at the beautiful hotel tropico for 2 nights. The accommodation is conveniently located a few mins drive from the shops and restaurants in Santa Elena. The lodges were spacious, clean & comfortable with a huge bed. Breakfast was really good and freshly prepared. There is a restaurant & wine bar on site which was really good value with delicious food. I would encourage you to book directly with the owner via their website as we received discount and also the ‘best’ lodge with an awesome view. Very friendly owner & staff, would highly recommend.

I stayed here whilst travelling around Costa Rica. Jose the owner greeted me on arrival and helped me with my bags. He was absolutely fantastic, telling me good restaurants and things to do in the area. He also offered to help me book any activities and organise any taxis. He is so kind and an absolutely wonderful host. The room itself was perfect, comfortable and so beautifully decorated and the views were absolutely to die for. The grounds were beautiful. I ate at the onsite restaurant on my first evening and the food was delicious. The staff were all so kind. Santa Elena is only a 25 minute walk away, so the location of the hotel is perfect. Would 100% recommend staying here, would go back in a heartbeat.
