    Loved the location for 2 major reasons: 1. On a preserve with multiple hiking trails that lead to a creek. We saw monkeys, birds, agounti, etc just by walking out our door! 2. The restaurant Tramonti associated with property is the best food we had in Costa Rica. We went there 2 nights in a row!

    Place was great. No A/C but was very cool outside in evening. Bathroom could use a remodel but it was clean! Would recommend for family room.

    The hotel is in a great location. The rooms are clean and authentic except for the spiders but they are part of the experience. The showers have no water pressure and are not always warm. The staff is wonderful. It’s a very peaceful place to stay. The breakfast is traditional and delicious.

    primitiv

    Very primitiv facility. The cabine was of very low standard in comparison to the weather condition. We hard 2 days storm and rain at night. The cabin was not wind closed at all and the corrugated roofplates sounded like an orchester when it was raining. The separation wall between the 2 cabins was not sound proof at all and a coughing neighbor kept us awake. The water pressure was very poor and the shower was a drip drip shower

  • 8.0.Very good

    Hotel El Bosque is a quiet, nature-centric property tucked away from the main road in Monteverde. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, and the nature trails on the property were a lot of fun for a self-guided walk. I think your experience at El Bosque likely depends on the room you're in, though. Our room had a number of sizable spiders that came out from behind the woodwork after dark, the shower "drain" was a slow-running hole in the wall, and we had a water leak from underneath our bathroom sink on the second night. However a different room (which they put us in for one night while they tried to deal with the spiders) was much nicer, with tighter seams around the ceiling and a traditional shower drain. So if you're bothered by things like that, I still suggest Hotel El Bosque...just get in touch with them prior to check-in and discuss room selection in advance. The front desk is extremely understanding and helpful!
