We were absolutely delighted with our stay at Poco a Poco! We had a room with a private patio and jacuzzi, and that made for a very beautiful and romantic stay. We can't say enough about the staff who were friendly and helpful. A special thank you to Alejandra Araya and

Visited this hotel in January 2019. We had a good visit to this hotel. The staff was attentive and went out of their way to make a our visit comfortable. They even turned on the external fire place for us to take pictures. Nice rooms and breakfast. Thanks

This was probably the best hotel during our Costa Rica tour. Nice clean rooms, good restaurant (both breakfest and dinner was great - but a little pricy) and the best of all - a hot tub with a beautiful view over the hills and forest.

I've heard that there is no air conditioning here. Is that true?
Dear Christina, that is correct, Monteverde is located up 1.500 metres above sea level right at the continental divide. Its windy, much cooler and for years, there hasnt been a real need for A/C in rooms. Yet, let me tell you that due to global warming and climate change, it has gotten much more hotter up here,, ( sometimes of the year ) Hotel Poco a Poco is the first hotel with two deluxe rooms with air conditioned. Please send us an email with dates and number of guests.. and we´ll let you know rates and availability!!

Do they have a fitness center? Does it have a bike?
No. Although they have signs of a fitness center posted throughout the hotel, there is no fitness center. They really need to remove that from the amenities because it’s false advertisement.

"Room 16 is especially nice!"
"We stayed in a standard Quetzal room - 38 - really comfortable bed and well appointed bathroom with a balcony and view across the valley."
"If you are not upto climbing stairs ask for a room on a lower floor."
"every room is different and fun! Our kids said the wind was loud in the rooms above the office"
"Rooms are fine, common areas are much nicer but we could have WiFi from the room so we were ok. "
US$137 - US$300 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
