  • 8.0.Very Good

    Good overall but with few excellent points

    Shower started cold then ended up after engineering adjustment at nuclear hot. But that’s OK. In another bedroom you could turn the shower handles quite a bit and not really know what was happening. The property is safe and well located with kind personnel and a 24 hour guard. Other than the guard there is no 24 hour front desk. There was a large crack in our wooden door which made it possible to view inside the room. The crack was 2 feet long and an eighth of an inch wide. There’s no reason for this. They have a pool that is unstaffed and has a swim up bar that is unstaffed. The pool was lukewarm/cool, so the only place to be was in the large hot tub. At least they had bar service to the hot tub. It’s a good place at a good price. Probably used to be upscale. Service is just about perfect. Maintenance is it’s pretty good but not great, for example there should be no tiles missing from the hot tub. There is no late night food service, room service or delivery. After the Covid thing the crowds should be better, but for now the town is dead by 9 o’clock, so if you’re out and about all day with activities you better make sure you’re seated somewhere by 730, or of the food options will be of low-quality. In terms of the resort, the atmosphere in general is Very Zen like and Low-key.

    The restaurant was fantastic as was the service. The walking path near our room had many birds and a few animal species living there.

    Hotel & Spa Poco a Poco was great!! Would highly suggest for a couple. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect -- short 4 minute walk into the little town of Monteverde, grocery store, restaurants and café right across the street, and close to the cloud forest (easy location for tour pickup as well). Favorite part-- the deck over looking the forest at sunset! With a lovely cocktail and amazing dinner!

    Exceeded expectations

    We weren’t expecting much based on reviews and pictures, but we we very pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a king room and it was the most comfortable bed of our entire 2-week trip. The bathroom was very clean, and big! Either we got one of their best rooms or they’ve done some renovations. If so, they should really update the photos, particularly for the bathroom. Short walk to the main street and restaurants, but far enough to be away from the noise. Highly recommended when staying in Monteverde!

    Beautiful modern property, great views, excellent warm pool, large rooms and bathrooms. Only area for improvement: the showers are strong and warm, but not hot. Esp given wet and windy weather in Monteverde, a hot shower is a must. Breakfast is very good. Location is perfect to explore Monteverde. Definitely one of the better hotels in Santa Elena.
