The rooms at this hotel were beautiful! They had a great view of the beautifully landscaped grounds. Close to the park as well. Staff was very friendly as well. No wifi in rooms though. Would recommend Fonda Vela to anyone traveling to Monteverde.

We had a few days here on our tour of Costa Rica. Fabulous. Really close to the cloud forest. A taxi would be advised if heading to the town. The room was great with outstanding views. Go see the humming bird gallery.

I am not sure what is meant by customer service. The place is not a 5 Star facility...most places in Monteverde tend to keep staff fairly lean because tourism is only 6-8 months per year. That said, we did not experience... More

It was one of my daughter's favourite places to stay, lovely rooms, good food and helpful front desk staff. It was close to where we saw our first Quetzal :)
