Don't be deceived by the outward appearance, this is a very comfortable abode. The rooms are clean and spacious if not luxurious. The staff is friendly and the rooms vary enough to accommodate various groupings of couples and families. A few "sodas" (local restaurants), a bar, and convenience store within a block and town is and easy 15 minute walk....

The owners here are incredibly friendly and hospitable. We were greeted with a big smile and recommendations for local restaurants and activities. There is wonderful woodworking throughout the property and the rooms kind of feel like little cabins. A nice room and breakfast came to a total of $75. You cannot beat this price. The breakfast was delicious (fresh fruit...

The rustic lodge is in a quiet area. The lodge and its grounds are very pretty. The staff is friendly as well as helpful. They helped us get a taxi. We stayed two nights. We would love to go back. The breakfast was also very good.

I spent two nights here as a solo traveler. I loved the location of this hotel. It's a bit hidden and close enough walk to downtown Santa Elena, but far enough away that you don't feel stuck in a tourist trap. As soon as I arrived I felt welcomed. Jose helped me book the tours I wanted as soon as...

Small, but very very clean, rooms. The service was excellent. We stayed for two nights. The concierge booked us two tours, and got our laundry set up for us. The rooms are a little dark, but I've been finding that to be true throughout Costa Rica. We would sit out on the patio/ deck, and were offered really good coffee...

This was a fantastic spot for our 3 days in Monteverde. The rooms were perfectly simple - clean, comfortable, and very eco-friendly. Our two-person room was equipped with a queen and a single, which was just right for my sister and me. The location is equally wonderful, in that you can easily access the downtown area of Santa Elena with...

I stayed for only one night, the lodge helped organise a tour and airport transfer for me. Wifi is a bit weak if at all in the room but better in reception. The decor is very cute and rustic, it's not really to my taste as I found the room quite dark but the restaurant area is marvellous. It's not...
