Perfect surroundings, comfortable rooms, hot showers, laundry service, excellent breakfast. Everything was amazing!! The one thing I'd like to mention though, is that their website says they are .9kms from the Cloud Forest Reserve. Thinking we were that close, I decided to walk there. Turns...More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days. This place is in such a great location and close to the cloud forest and other attractions. Stop by the bat conservatory if that interests you. Daniel and Aaron are such amazing staff and set a great...More

Hey Senthil, First and foremost you're family is great and I appreciate that you chose us for your stay :) Being a father myself, I can relate to how it feels when a little one is not feeling well, and not having a car in...More

If you want inexpensive basic lodging in a beautiful setting this is the place. Nothing fancy, but the breakfast is great, friendly staff, and lots of wildlife in the immediate area. Make sure to walk the trails adjacent to the property. They are similar to...More

Hi Ken, Thanks for your comment. Just to clarify, the trails next door belong to a company called "El Bosque Preserve". They are not free. They have an entrance fee of $10 per person but I pay a monthly special fee so our guests can...More

Hi ukdianeuk, Thanks for your feedback. Looks like you did a review of the roads of Monteverde more than about our hotel itself... All feedback is welcome, though in this case, it's not clear what you recommend we should improve... Except for the light on...More

This hostel is run by two very enthusiastic brothers that will help you always out with questions, tour bookings and transport (e.g. Jeep-Boat-Jeep). I've never met other Costa Ricians that speak that good English like these two! The expression"hotel" is maybe a littlebit missleading. In...More

Response from Daniel L, General Manager at Hotel El BosqueResponded 27 April 2017

Hi Chris, Thanks for your feedback. Even though a hostel may sound like the proper term, it really doesn't fit us as it targets younger/louder generations and it also doesn't offer other amenities we do (like more than 5KM of hiking trails onsite, etc...). As...More

Hi Joel, We're an Ecofriendly hotel. Our rooms do not have A/C but they do have big windows (with big screens), that you can open to let the fresh air flow. The average temperature in MV is 22C degrees which makes our... More
