Lovely facility and front desk personnel. Breakfast overpriced but other than that...quite nice. Had stayed at another hotel several years ago...El Establo much nicer

Beautiful El Establo
We loved our stay at El Establo. It was beautiful. We had one of the honeymoon suites, and we were so pleased with our room!

El Estable Hotel in Monteverde - not worth it
This place is overpriced. It feels like an old fashioned retreat center. The rooms are sparsely decorated with old furniture. The restaurant that is part of the hotel is fine, but also overpriced. The people who work there are very nice, but not particularly professional. I would not stay in this hotel again.

El Establo Mountain Hotel, Monteverde
Good place for the price. Room nice and spacious, breakfast plentiful and good. Big help booking tours. Only negative was ants in room, we were level with the outside, ask for a room that has a balcony, ant problem should not be nearly as bad.
