My boyfriend just got back from our trip a couple of days ago. We did so much research on hotels in Monteverde and were lucky enough to come across this beauty. We were looking for something lush and amongst the trees, and boy did we get it. We stayed in the Tree Top Studio. It had the scent of beautiful wood when we walked in. Sabine was wonderful. She answered my endless email questions with utmost attention and patience before we arrived, and when we got there, she took the time to go through all the details.
We had our own kitchenette, complete with fridge, toaster oven, small fridge, all the pots and pans you could need, which was awesome. We took advantage of all of this by purchasing all our food just a block up the street at the local co-op supermarket. It was very affordable. The location of the Tree Top House was great, 'cause it was sort of off the beaten path but also easily accessible to town by cab and SUPER close to a couple of great restaurants, including Tramonti, the Italian restaurant with a beautiful view of the rainforest and Stella's bakery.
We were lucky enough to experience an awesome lightning storm from the Tree Top Studio and take some great photos! It was just so cozy, and with the extra blankets, staying warm and comfortable at night was not a problem.
Please be aware that you're staying very close to vegetation, hence the random appearance of insets (big and small) inside the room is not uncommon! We actually loved the little surprises! Nothing serious... moths, grasshoppers, a couple of small spiders... We are animal lovers and gently escorted them back outside. So not for the squeamish... In fact, Costa Rica shouldn't be for the squeamish! Even the more modern hotels receive frequent insect guests. Costa Rica is home to over 300,000 species of insects, so expect it!
All in all, we would stay at the Tree Top House again! FIVE BIG STARS!
