Excellent hotel, very friendly staff, good food, beautiful views from the room. The kids had a great time. The hotel staff made our daughter's Birthday special by arranging a cake. Will definitely recommend this place to friends.

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Koora and loved it. We stayed in a family bungalow which was spacious, clean and had a wonderful view. The food was delicious and the staff went out of their way to prepare something off the menu if you wanted. Happy hour drinks were fun too. The front desk staff are so helpful in planning tours and every guide they chose for us was fantastic. The set up made it easy to meet and chat with other travelers. The Agouti trail is next to the hotel, which was fun to hike in. Plus we saw birds and wildlife just walking to our room. I highly recommend this hotel!

My family had a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica early April '22 and we all agreed that we wish we had another night's stay at Koora. The service was simply fantastic. I commend Javier, Aaron, Daina, Kenneth, and especially Marco. Our first day in Monteverde I accidentally left a brand new rain jacket in a gift shop bathroom in Santa Elena, not realizing until we were back at Koora awaiting pickup by a cab for an evening excursion. Marco immediately started calling gift shops in town until he located the right one. He instructed the taxi driver where to go and the jacket was waiting for me at the shop. He must have called 5 or 6 places before locating the right one. I was overjoyed. He also coordinated the doctor's visit for COVID tests before our departure, arranging for an earlier appointment than was even on their schedule. Every employee there used our names over and over again. Our daughter "little Charlita" was particularly impressed. The staff also arranged for us to preorder breakfast the day of our departure and had it ready to-go when our airport shuttle arrived. We dined there a couple times and all had fantastic meals. The pancakes at breakfast were some of the best I've eaten. The room was exceptional just like the service. As I said, we all wished we'd had at least another day there. I do not know if it is a family business but Koora was run like one and they treated us like we were esteemed members of the family. I cannot say enough about the service, attention, and wonderful experience we had there. I will recommend Costa Rica and definitely Koora to all friends looking for a vacation spot.

This hotel is so special! We stayed in the two story family bungalow with our 7&9 year olds, the actual property is beautiful, very secluded and nestled in with nature, they also have trails you can take right from the property. The staff are all amazing, so friendly and personable and made our stay magical they really were another reason we loved our stay so much. We all already miss Koora!

Second time at Koora and certainly not the last. The bungalows are nice and confortable, food is fantastic and the views to the gulf of Nicoya, a beauty. No need to go the hotel’s private reserve to find different birds and mammals just by the gardens surrounding the rooms. But the best thing of this hotel is the staff. They all go the extra mile to make you feel confortable and “pura vida” during your stay at Monteverde.

We spent a few wonderful nights at the Koora Hotel last week, and my daughters (ages 5 & 10) are already asking when we can go back! The two-story room with amazing views was comfortable and gave us such great space to spread out. The food in the restaurant was delicious, and the waitstaff and front desk staff were all so friendly and outgoing. It was our first stop on our first trip to Costa Rica and set the perfect tone for an amazing week.

Great hotel/bungalows tucked up the mountain in Monteverde. Staff was amazing especially Aaron, one of the waiters at the restaurant and the young woman at the front desk. They knew all of our names - amazing! Good food and views were excellent. Family Bungalow was the perfect size with a small kitchenette for snacks, etc. Close to town but not really walkable. There was a preserve next store where we saw plenty of wildlife. We were hoping to see some animals from our room but only a couple of birds. Definitely worth checking out if you are in Monteverde.

Outstanding boutique hotel. Individual in every way. Best service I’ve ever experienced. Staff knew our names, knew what food we liked. Amazing breakfasts. The view from the restaurant is breath taking. We saw many Coati and a boa constrictor in the grounds. Really was an amazing place to stay.
