A beautiful location very near to the village. The rooms were fine but lacked hot water as mentioned in other posts. We had multiple trips to the reception to get the water working usually resulting in the water working for about 30 minutes. Breakfast was simple but ok.

The grounds of Hotel Claro de Luna are gorgeous; however, everything else was sorely disappointing. We were in one of the "luxury" suites. There are no ceiling fans or screens on the windows, so we ended up with lots of bugs in the room. Somewhat expected since we were in Costa Rica, but still something that could be easily remedied...

We were here 1 night and had a great experience with the hotel. Very friendly staff. We had one of the rooms in the back of the garden and not in the main building. Big rooms with a porch. You can walk from the hotel to the village to find a restaurant.

The hotel is better than in the pictures,it looks like a Swiss chalet, with beautiful small gardens and you can walk to the center of town where the restaurants are .We stayed there 3 days with our 7 year old and love it, the staff it's amazing they went out of their way to please us. Breakfast is very good....

We had an excellent experience here. The staff are friendly, helpful, and extremely tolerant of exuberant, noisy children (ours). The setting is intimate yet afforded a lot of privacy. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, the rooms immaculate and luxurious. The breakfasts were delicious. We'd have loved an in-room coffee maker, but all in all, it was fantastic.

My sister and I want to tell you that, thanks to you, our trip to Costa Rica was awesome! We had a great time and everything went perfectly. I cannot adequately express to you how impressed we both were with the willingness of the personnel at the hotel to accommodate and provide for our needs. The service was unparalleled. I...

It may not be luxury, but hidden in the trees yet close enough to walk to the commercial district, this friendly hotel is comfortable and well worth it's economy price. The staff makes you feel welcome, the rooms are basic but very clean and the breakfasts are nourishing and substantial. For a quiet place to stay while in Monteverde, I...

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel. The last time was three years ago and was just two us. This year was with a teenager. The hotel has not changed at all since were last there. The grounds are very nice and hotel is located on a hill above the town. Unfortunately, there is not much view...

We arrived at Claro de Luna and the front desk quickly checked us in and gave us a beautiful room behind the main house that had our own porch to sit out on and spacious room. They helped us set up a night walk through the rain forest that first evening and everything went smoothly from start to finish. The...
