We spent a few nights at this B&B in early February. The Superior rooms were spacious and comfortable. The gardens are lovely, and the location is easily accessible by foot from the downtown shops and restaurants. Breakfast was pretty average with a limited selection of scrambled eggs, toast, rice, pancakes, and a small portion of cut-up fresh fruit. The dining...

The hotel is ok, but nothing special. Spacious room but not very confortable beds. Helpfull staff and a good starting point for excursions to the rain forest. The shower was ok and they have a babychair in the diningroom (breakfastroom)..

This hotel is very conveniently located and the staff (Susan) was very helpful and nice. We stayed on the ground floor and the room looked pretty good, at first glance. The linens in this hotel were disgusting. I am not even sure that they were clean. The towels were thin and like sandpaper. The sheets smelled so badly of mold...

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and were disappointed wishing hadn't prepaid for it. The rooms were okay and it came with a jacuzzi tub, however there was very little hot water so it was like taking a bath in pool water. There were bugs everywhere in our room and it was difficult to sleep. The staff was very...

This small family hotel is really good value for money. The rooms in the annex are spatious and with an outdoor veranda. Best of all is the friendly atmosphere. The staff makes a great effort to help you with bookings and good advice. They do all they can to make you feel welcome.

This hotel is blessed with friendly staff and a beautiful setting. We were able to eat a fresh breakfast on the veranda overlooking the flourishing front garden, while watching the squirels race in the trees and the humming birds pollenating the flowers.

The website was promessing but the reality was totally different : bugs, terrible beds with noisy and uncomfortable plastic under the linen, light walls and horrible breakfast. People are not nice at all and everything in the lobby / breakfast room is durty. When my husband asked after his poor piece of bad bread whether he could get some granola...

We were very excited about this place before arriving to Costa Rica. Reviews and pictures of the hotel looked amazing and promising. How wrong we were...We were allocated to one of the rooms upstairs, just above the kitchen. The room was very small, dark and unbelievably hot. Tiny fan was standing on the corner in full speed but the effect...

This hotel is good choice, if you plan to go to see Monteverde Cloud Forest - only 30 minutes by a bus. Hotel is nice, with homely atmosphere. A breakfast is not very rich, but good enough. A supermarket is 3 - 5 minutes walking, Santa Elena center too. For cheap and goog dinner I can recomend Super Pollo -...

Claro de Luna in Monteverde, Costa Rica was a nice hotel choice. It lacks some amenities such as TV, alarm clock and pool but it offers very clean and specious rooms. Rooms are beautifully decorated with local hardwood furniture. The bathroom was spacious and grounds were nicely landscaped. Air conditioning is not necessary in this area. TV would have been...
