We had a lovely 3 night stay at Orquideas. Amazing views, wonderful breakfasts, coatis, and great hospitality. Room was clean and nicely furnished Close to town and easy access to nature. Great start to our costa rica vacation.

We stayed for three nights with our two young boys. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Very helpful in offering suggestions about places and sites but not pushy at all. The owners take pride in their hotel and it shows- the place is very clean and the grounds are very well kept- the place felt like home. Great...

The hotel is clean with rooms that are slightly small but have everything you need. Breakfast was very good every day. Nidia was very friendly and welcoming. She was very helpful in getting us oriented to available activities in the area and available to help set things up for us. The hot water ran a bit short in the shower...

Well-situated little hotel a two minute walk from the downtown/restaurant hub for all of Monteverde and Saint Elena. About nine rooms, and those closer to the street will experience some noise in daytime but after dark, most traffic in or out of town pretty much stops. And this quaint and comfy little hotel is on the road in/out. I'm surprised...

This 'hotel' has a few rooms, so not large. It is super clean, and provides breakfast for guests. The breakfast is of good quality, served cheerfully, and there was variation from day to day. We had Eggs/Toast/Plantains one day, then Eggs/Sausage/Waffles the next, etc. Each day a medium serving of fresh fruit accompanied breakfast. The rooms here are not huge,...

This was our favorite hotel of the three we visited in our trip. From the outside it looks very modest, but inside it is modern, clean, and very comfortable. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the restaurants and amenities of Santa Elena, a compact but convenient and complete base for restaurants, stores, banks, and other services. The hotel is...

I have to be honest from the beginning before i tell you the many good parts about this place: If you aren't a heavy sleeper or you don't have earplugs with you, then don't stay here because the walls that separate the rooms are thin as paper and you can literally hear EVERY SINGLE WORD your neighbours are saying. This...

The hotel is run by a very nice family, very friendly and always in a good mood. The breakfast is served with fruits and meanwhile you can watch coatis and monkeys outside. The rooms are clean and you get fresh towels every day.

The hotel is clean and nicely decorated as a wood cabin and has some great views over the forest and valley. We also got to see some local wildlife as monkeys and raccoons came to the hotel while we were having breakfast one morning. It is situated just outside the village of Santa Elena, and is a 5-10 min walk...
