Fodor's Review

The well-established Costa Rica Expeditions operates this longtime favorite, where extremely comfortable rooms have vaulted ceilings and great views and often come as part of a package that includes a long list of nature activities. The bar is situated around a huge but cozy lobby fireplace, and the whirlpool tub in the enormous solarium is a perfect place to unwind after a day of tromping through the reserves. The exceptional El Jardin Restaurant, with its menu of "Garden,

Ocean, and Land" options, uses locally grown vegetables and dairy from the Monteverde milk factory. Rooms are situated along a long corridor, which tends to carry hallway noise; Room 20 has the most privacy. Guests are advised to keep their balcony doors closed since monkeys have been known to ransack suites.
