We stayed two nights in the cabin at El Sol and loved every minute there. It was obvious from the beginning that Javier paid close attention to detail; we felt very well cared for. The cabin was a lovely, handcrafted, nurturing place to stay; cozy, and perfectly sized for two people. The pool was lovely. We had breakfast delivered to...

Our family of 4 (kids ages 9 & 11) spent 4 nights in the large cabin with the amazing views looking over the mountains. My son quickly settled into the hammock which hung on the porch and my daughter picked her bed right before the beautiful picturesque window. Javier was incredibly welcoming and a delicious lunch was ready for us...

We are a family of four (two adults, two teenagers) who spent four night at El Sol in June 2012. We stayed in the large cabin (a house, really) and loved it. The location is beautiful, secluded and quiet. We loved the fact that we were away from town (although I disagree with the reviewer who complained about the drive--we...

This property is too far from town especially if you take into consideration the awful bumpy road that you have to drive on for 10-15 minutes to get to civilization. I can see if you have a lot of small kids and you really need to cook but if that isn't the case, stay near town and avoid the unpaved...

My family and I rented the large cabin for 2 nights. We were 6 adults and a baby. The cabin is actually a spacious yet cozy house set in a beautiful spot surrounded by trees and nature. Entirely hand made from wood, this spectacular house is very inviting and fully equipped for self cooking. This provides a great atmosphere for...

“No internet and TV??!!” – asked my always-busy-consultant boyfriend. But I had a plan! After reading reviews, I decided that it will be a perfect place for our second leg of the trip (went to Arenal before and Manuel Antonio after) – great views, relaxed, own cabin, unbelievably romantic! I am a planner and emailed Elizabeth right away; she was...

We stayed for two nights in the big cabin with our 7 yo son. From the moment Javier opened the door and we saw the view (jaw-dropping), I knew we were going to love it. El Sol is a really unique place and I would 100% recommend it to anyone looking for lodging in Santa Elena / Monteverde. The good:...

El sol truly is one of the best places I have been too, it's so tranquil. The cabins (and villa) are absolutely beautiful, so rustic and full of charm. The food from the neighbours was also excellent and good value for money. Javier and his family made us feel very welcome and were extremely helpful. We went ona night trek...

1) Javier is the MAN and if you don't take at least 2 tours with him, you are missing out. 2) His wife Dema is one of the lovliest ladies I have ever met. 3) His children could not be more adorable/welcoming/engaging/friendly. 4) This is by far the coolest place my boyfriend and I have ever stayed in and we...
