  • 6.0.Good

    Our party of 6 arrived late after a long day of hiking, zip lining and bumpy roads at Monteverde. Dinner was okay, no raves/no complaints. They gave us 2 complimentary flights of beer (nice), but (trust us) don’t come for the beer. The room was rustic and felt dirty. We had a family room w/ 4 dbl beds - basically one long room with a shared BR partially dividing it. We were aware there was no A/C at this hotel, but there was only 1 ceiling fan in that long divided room, and it didn’t work. In order to have any ventilation we had to have the patio door wide open and there was no screen door so bugs/creatures could come in all night. The toilet either wouldn’t flush or ran all the time (didn’t discover til 12a). The hotel had stocked our room with two tiny thread bare towels for 6 people. The beds were concave and pillows were tiny and flat. The pool looked nice, but the spa was empty & looked like no one had been in it for a decade. The best part was being woken by the sound of howler monkeys at 5am. They sounded like they were getting closer and would be walking through the patio door any moment. It was thrilling, and I was glad to be awake to see the sunrise and watch the birds, although not everyone appreciated the wake-up call. Breakfast was delicious, but we spent our morning looking for another hotel. We just couldn’t stay there another night, it was too uncomfortable. Because we prepaid (Expedia), we couldn’t get a refund for the lost night, despite all the complaints.?

    Great location.

    Amazing location, dated building. We booked a room for 4 with breakfast for 4. However at the time of breakfast we were told children were not included, we requested to review the booking details but staff said there was an error - sorry. We requested paid breakfast and it was a little too expensive. reimburse us the cost of breakfast as it was included in our booking.

    Beer and views

    Location 5/5 Beer 5/5 It was wonderful to stay right on the banks of Lake Arenal watching the clouds roll by. We thought the beers were amazing (highly recommend trying the chili beer!). Only thing is that the food is quite pricey, otherwise no complaints.
