All the reviews are true! El Sol is the perfect experience for travelers seeking a retreat and a chance to unplug. The hotel is close enough to Santa Elena (10-15 min drive) but far enough to be not caught in the bustle. The grounds are gorgeous, thoughtfully curated and well-maintained. The bungalow/cabin style of El Sol gives ample privacy and a truly personal experience for each guest. My cabin was very clean, charmingly decorated, and well-furnished with everything I needed. And the $10 breakfast option was decadent, to say the least! One of my favorite moments was sitting on my hammock under the porch of my cabin, watching the rain and hummingbirds. Susanna is a very available, sincerely warm host. I appreciated her taking the time to get to know and help each guest. I was a solo traveler -- I think this would be such a great stay for couples, friend groups, or families especially!

El Sol is such a beautiful and unique place to stay! It is a few minutes outside of town but worth the extra drive. The cabins are beautiful and private and nestled into the foliage! You feel like you are staying in the jungle! The grounds are very pretty and Susanne who runs the place is so friendly and helpful. The breakfast they provide for $10 was absolutely incredible. Highly recommend!

This place is unique: the views are breathtaking and you don’t know if to watch the magical valley or stay in front of a cabin and enjoy myriads of birds, squirrels and butterflies… nowhere in Costa Rica we have seen so many of them. We didn’t meet a single cockroach :-). The cabins are lovely and impeccably clean. The breakfast was delicious and delivered to our cabin. There’s an amazing energy in the air. We loved El Sol and would love to go back. Also, Susanne was a delight!

We stayed here 11 years ago and always wanted to return to the cabin with a beautiful view of the valley all the way to the Nicoya Peninsula. It did not disappoint. Susanne was so helpful and accommodating. This is an incredibly peaceful and lush place just 3 miles on a mostly paved to Santa Elena, a great location for the reserves, zip lining, hanging bridges, etc. the cabin is rustic, but has lots of character. One caveat: it’s a long walk from parking to the cabin along a walkway with several stairs… a bit difficult for elders perhaps, but worth it. Be sure to check out Susanne’s original paintings that are for sale. We would definitely stay again if we were to return to Monteverde !

This tiny hotel is nested in the country side. Our big cabin had a stunning view over the valley, where there is each evening a stunning sunset. The cabin was large and organised so as to facilitate a view over the landscape. The German manager is very nice. The place is very beautiful. Three nuances: - the bed is extremely uncomfortable and too narrow for two. An unfortunate black point. - the wind (a bit cold at night) is blowing a bit inside (insulation is so so). - the water at the shower is more lukewarm than warm Overall, the temporary discomfort will be forgotten and will remain the memory of the remarkable stunning view…

Our family had an incredible time at El Sol. Although a very short visit, we will definitely come back to this beautiful place. We all thought the horseback riding with Manuel was the highlight of our trip, and meals prepared by his wife were delicious. The view and sunset was stunning, and the hosts were so accommodating and helpful in organizing our activities during our stay. The pool was amazing and refreshing, the cabin was gorgeous, and our kids loved their adorable dog Negrita!

We really enjoyed our stay and absolutely loved doing the horse tour with Manuel. My family did a ton of activities while in Costa Rica but for my kids the best part was the horse tour. Watching the stars at night was also magical.

The pictures very accurately describe the Cabina and shared grounds/pool. The landscaping & views were absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed local recommendations on food and activities and had a wonderful horseback ride with Manuel—who treated use like old friends. Our stay in Monteverde was sunnier then we expected and we enjoyed having the pool to ourself everyday. Negrita the local pup greeted us daily and stole bellyrubs at the pool. Our cabins did get ants and geckos—mainly after nightfall, but hey you are surrounded by nature! However if you cannot stand the occasional bug or gecko then these cabins might not be for you. We’ve already recommended the cabinas to other travelers.

Thank you very much for your beautiful words and recommendations!! We do all we can to keep this little guys outside of the cabins, but they manage to get back in. At the end of the day we are the intruders, not them. :-) We are very happy to know that you enjoyed your time here and that you appreciated our recommendations. We will pass the good words on to Manuel, your old new tico friend. We look forward to having you back any time!

We absolutely loved our stay at El Sol. The host, Susanne, was extremely helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed the pool, laundry service, and quiet solitude of the cabin where we stayed. The horseback riding day excursion was a family favorite as well. Most of all, we loved the uniquely magical experience that El Sol provided.

Beautiful small property with valley views and spectacular sunsets. Nice to be out of Santa Elena. The garden is clearly a labour of love. We saw as many birds here as we did in the nature reserves. While the cabins are sparse and simple they are immaculately clear and well cared for. Try the sauna and cold pool! Absolute highlight of our stay. The property managers are warm and friendly. The place has a great vibe overall. My only complaint is that the highway is so close and the noise from passing cars is unfortunately loud. Other than that it’s idyllic.

Nevertheless i appologies if that was an inconvenience for you.
