Muy caro para el sevicio que presta.Desayuno escaso y de poca calidad. La habitación no tiene armario para cogar la ropa y hay que dejarla en la maleta.La cama vieja y con sábanas con "bolitas". La TV no se ve. No hay silla para sentarse y escasa luz para leer. Tiene muchas estrellas para lo que presta, pues ni siquiera se puede dejar la llave en Recepción, porque están un tiempo.

Nice with a beautiful view (of a forest).

Posted Mar 18, 2014
Pros: Low price and courteous personnel
Cons: A little wardrobe or so ethi g where to place clothes.
Location: Lots of things! Monteverde is a paradise. To get there, however, you must go trhough hell: the gravel roads (from SJ or from La Fortuna- Arenal).
Basic stuff; coherent with price charged. Rooms in the back have a beautiful view. Our was at top floor. Animals roamed around during the night makine a lot of noise.

Quaint hotel in heart of Monteverde

Posted Mar 8, 2014
Cons: We were looking for Forest Dreams Hotel Manakin, but the little sign on the road identifies it as Manakin Lodge. It is important to be consistent
Although difficult to find in the town of Monteverde, Manakin Lodge is a little inn near all the amenities, with very courteous staff, comfy bed, and very good breakfast.

A place you can give a try - very basic

Posted Feb 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
A place you can give a try to test yourself, one tiny bar of soap, no hot water for the sink, yes hot water for shower, no fan, no a/c due to the weather I assume, no chair , no table, yes TV, and old mattress and pillow. Perhaps it is what it is in the small town unless you stay at the finer hotel that cost a lot higher. The hotel location is in residential zone and a bit hard to find. The owners (two brothers) were very helpful. Breakfast items were just okay - eggs and rice n bean, or eggs and toast with coffee and orange juice; can't ask for too much in small town. By the way beware of rough riding on unpaved road.

more than adequate

One of the owners was onsite everyday. The room was a typical Monteverde room.

Si vous aimez le style rustique, cet hotel est pour vous. Pas d'eau chaude dans la douche, fenêtres qui ferment mal, Aucun meubles dans la chambre sauf le lit et une télévision. Pas de chaise, pas de bureau, pas de table, rien! Mal isolé on entend tous les bruits des maisons alentour, chiens qui aboient, couples dans les autre chambres, etc. Non recommandable.

Not high end, but not bad

Posted Jan 15, 2014
Pros: The owner/mangers were very friendly, very helpful, providing insiders tips on things to do and places to go around Santa Elena and Monteverde.
Cons: In a week's stay, my room was never made up once. The breakfast, while not bad, could use a little variety (eggs every day).Only a few parking spaces.
Location: The hotel is about a mile from either Santa Elena town and Monteverde village. Walkable, but a cab ride is only about $2.

Not there but there

A bit hard to find, and once we found it we were told that they are booked out and our actual room would be in a different hotel. The room we got in the end was adequate and spacious.

Eenvoudig verblijf

Prijs kwaliteit OK. Of alles volgens de normen is weet ik niet.
