There is no AC as you would expect with an Eco Lodge but a large ceiling fan and additional fans on request help keep things cooler.
With the high altitude the temperature drops unlike the jungle for instance in the Osa Peninsula.
This hotel exceeded all of our expectations. The location was fantastic, the room clean and comfortable with a great view of a small stream and fountain. The restaurant was great with a wood fireplace that provided a great ambience after dinner.
We enjoyed drinks and games in the lodge after a fantastic meal. We enjoyed the eco park which is very close to the hotel.
Our kids loved the butterfly room and the pool. Excellent staff!
Very beautiful grounds with butterfly gardens and nature paths. The rooms were very clean and staff was friendly and helpful. They have recycling.
The restaurant is good and had a beautiful view (no room service offered). The hotel offers mini packages and a whole package, each seem to be a lot more than what you would get charged if you just plan it yourself.
The walk to get to a grocery store and to the town is about 10 minutes. We would stay at this lodge again.
The hotel is a “must-stay,” offering a true eco-lodge experience in a beautiful natural setting.
The hotel’s restaurant, El Jardin, has great food and wonderful service. The quaint nearby town of St. Elena is definitely worth exploring.
Lovely grounds and gardens, lots of birds, has an indoor butterfly garden you can dine in, hummingbird garden outside.
We had a garden room which opened to the (as expected) garden, with a nice patio with chairs and hammock outside. Great pool. Very helpful and friendly staff. Gave us a welcome drink on check in, and left snacks and drinks in the room in evenings.
Breakfast was included, the fruit they brought when you sat down would alone have been enough for breakfast, and then you ordered more! But good nourishment for hiking in the cloud forest. Very eco-friendly.
The hotel is an Eco friendly hotel set in exotic gardens with friendly staff just a few minutes drive from numerous outstanding parks.

Very clean and well run, with comfortable cabins and a very sociable reception/restaurant area with plenty of space for sitting and watching all the local wildlife.
There were feeding tables located in the grounds to attract the birds and monkeys and the staff were very knowledgeable when it came to identification. Well placed for anyone wanting to enjoy some adrenaline sports including the zip wire experience located in the grounds.
The food served in the restaurant was good local food and plenty of it. Taxis to and from Santa Elena are easy to arrange.
This is an eco lodge located on a 72 acre preserve. It is a nature lovers dream. Particularly good for birders.
The staff is 5 star. Gustavo in the restaurant was a delight and the general manager, Wilberth, is charming amd runs an exceptionally well managed hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, although rustic.
The grounds and hiking trails are well maintained. We live in Costa Rica and even we saw wildlife here we had not seen before.
Self guided hikes, a zip line and a guided night tour were offered on site. Monteverde Reserve is close by, as are other attractions.
Note: If you are looking for a resort, climate controlled rooms or a tv in your room stay at one of the resorts in the area( expect to pay double or more).
We were very pleasantly surprised by the great facilities here as our travel agent had noted it as a simple basic eco lodge. Yes the rooms do not have TV or aircon but they are comfortably and attractively furnished and the bathrooms are immaculate with good showers.
The bar and reception areas are lovely with a nice enclosed balcony to have sundowners at Happy hour when you can have two drinks for the price of one, cocktails, wine or beer and also lots of bird feeders to spot the hummingbirds and other birds.
There are also several trails directly from the hotel that are easy to walk alone and we saw coatimundi and agouti just a short way from our cabin.
It is quite a way from the town centre up a very steep hill but taxis are easy to get and reasonable at six dollars per trip so we did not find this a problem.
The restaurant serves good evening meals if you do not want to go into town though.
