    Great place to see Monteverde

    Great location and great place for the money. We enjoyed breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. They booked the tours and they picked us up and brought us back to our room at no extra cost! The tour they recommended were super! Would book there again.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We loved our stay at Don Taco. We upgraded our room on arrival to the superior which had a swing seat by the window with lovely views out to the gulf. The staff were always super friendly and helpful. Breakfast included was 4 choices plus fresh fruit every morning. Location was excellent for sightseeing and dining. It was so good we booked an extra night!

    My wife and I are traveling Costa Rice for 8 days on our honeymoon. We were concerned about all our luggage being unattended while we were zip lining. I called and spoke to the owner of Hotel Don Taco the day before and asked for a early check-in. He had no problem with it and greeted us at check-in. Very nice man. Not to mention that our view was incredible. We sat on a swing chair for about 3 hours just talking and drinking in the picture perfect view.

    Loved having breakfast available and a cafe for drinks. The hotel had a great view of the forest and it was very central to downtown. It also provided excellent service in helping us schedule and get to tourist attractions.

  • 6.0.Good

    Hotel on the edge of town at top of a very steep hill. They offer a good breakfast with four options. Service from all staff was good. The room did not have a closet, dresser or anywhere to store clothes, so we had to keep them in the suitcase. Our room with one double and one twin bed was small..just the beds with no table or chair. There is a shared balcony with chairs and tables. But in March, it was so cold and windy we could not sit outside at night.

    Highly reccomend this hotel. Great location - just a few minutes walk to town. Staff was friendly and helpful! Loved the breakfast area and roof deck and chairs outside our room. Nice view and on a clear day we could see the ocean! Bathroom was felt a little worn/older, but otherwise very clean and well maintained.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The breakfast was decent, about the only thing. The reception man working was polite and helpful explaining activities. Very old rooms and did not seem clean. The sheets had hair in them from previous guests. The beds were extremely uncomfortable. I felt like I was staying in a very old cabin and camping. If you are just looking for a place and don’t mind any comfort you might be okay. We left after the first night. Not relaxing at all almost slept in the car. Also no air conditioning or fan and the windows open a crack at the top but no screens. Easily a 1 Star in the USA.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Good location and very affordable. This small hotel is a convenient spot to explore the Monteverde area. The decor is dated and can get chilly at night in this area so be sure to bring some warmer layers and manage your expectations as this is fairly standard for the area. Breakfast was included with fresh fruit an a few options.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Definitely not like the pictures! Uncomfortably small, and run down (putting it nicely). Fridge didnt work, view was of another building, had wifi but very spotty. Only good thing was staff was friendly and breakfasts were ok (not great but adequate). Wouldnt recommended this place.
