This property was actually not our first choice, but it turned out to be even better than we anticipated. We have two boys and each got their own room, plus we, the parents, got our own room and bathroom, which was a godsend being that our younger son loves to hog the bathroom. The bathrooms are very modern and the hot water works fast and it's really hot. The pictures of the place do not do it justice. It's much more inviting, cleaner and modern than the pictures show. The kitchen is fully stocked with a new stove and frige which was important for us because we like to cook. The high ceilings and shiny wooden walls create a very comfortable but modern feeling. Also the deck was beautiful, we could peer out into the forest and the small clearing. We also loved being able to use their cable tv and wifi which worked great. We used the laundry washer and dryer and they worked great. It was so quiet and peaceful.

Manfred, the hotel manager was very friendly and offered us free lattes and teas any time. He also booked great tours for us to go zip linning, a coffee tour and with the best tour guide, Samuel Arguedas, through the cloud forest. If you go to the cloud forest, I highly recommend you get a tour guide who is an expert at spotting specific tropical plants, insets and animals. There's no way we would have been able to see all the items he pointed out, i.e, tarantula, hummingbird, white faced monkey, coin something (like a racoon) animal). He has a passion for preserving the rainforest and all the species that inhabit it so his knowledge and understanding of the history, background of Costa Rica and Monteverde coupled with his very deep knowledge of the flora and fauna gave us a very insightful understanding of the Monteverde Cloud Forest. f you're not an environmentalist, than you will be by the end of the tour, and his passion will transfer into yours. He is the best tour guide we have ever had. It was like he was a zoologist, botanist, historian all wrapped up on one. My sons loved this tour.

If you book this location, don't be confused by the fact that there are no street names or numbers. It is impossible to find on the GPS. Manfred will send you a map. Just have the GPS take you to Monteverde or Santa Elena and then ask anyone where Hotel Miramontes is, everyone knows and they will just point you in the right direction. Everyone knows where each hotel is located, it's a small town. Manfred will meet you and then take you to the Cabanas Hojas Verde.

All in all, this was one of our favorite vacations because of this place and the help of Manfred and Samuel. Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful.
