    The Hotel rooms were spacious and awesome. Breakfast was excellent as well. It's close to Montaverde Reserve. There were bugs in and around the rooms but this is expected for the location of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Monteverde is beautiful and this hotel was amazing. The rooms are gorgeous, the grounds are pretty and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again. It's a long bumpy road to get to Monteverde, but totally worth it.
