We didn't really get a feel for this hotel since we stayed here only one day. It was in the middle of town so not mush wildlife to see. We spent the day at Selvatura Park. This is a must if staying in Monteverde. We did the butterfly garden, hummingbird garden and the hanging walkways. As a nature loving family,...

Hello Mrs Beverly. Making the trip to Montverde for just one night may seem a little too much for some people,, we strongly recommend staying at least two nights. There´s so much to do and see that sometimes one day isn’t enough. We are located down town Santa Elena, there are other hotels further more off town, yet I believe...

We were a little nervous about this hotel because of the few poor reviews. We were pleasantly surprised with our stay. If we has to compare it to a hotel back home in the states, it's better than a Motel 6 but not as nice as a Marriott. The property is well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful....

We stayed here with our three boys for two nights. After the extremely rough ride up unpaved mountain roads to get to Monteverde, this place was a welcome sight. The welcome drinks and explanation of amenities we received at check-in were exceptional. While the rooms are a little small and dated, they were comfortable, sufficient for our needs and met...

So this is the spot I slept the worst at in Costa Rica. Way way over priced. The only reason we stayed here was everything else was booked and because they have a pool.... But jacuzzi was only luke-warm. Very club medy without much character! If your going to spend the 150 they're going to charge you go somewhere else......

Hello, Mr William. I´m very sorry you felt this way about the relationship: price/value of Poco a Poco, too bad everything else was sold out so you could have checked on other hotels and get a better perception of prices and rates in Monteverde. Specially during high season. There are only three pools at Monteverde, and we are the cheapest...

Poco a Poco was in the perfect spot to walk into Santa Elena, but away from all the town noise. The room was clean and roomy enough for three of us to share.
