Room Details

What's to Love

El Establo mountain hotel has a super cool looking fitness area that looks out over one of the pools. Plus, the resort's very own tree top canopy tour gives you a 360-degree panoramic view of the trees, Gulf and Monteverde Rain Forest Reserve.

What We'd Change

If you're looking for water sports or sandy beach lounging, El Establo will disappoint. But the private forest, biking trails and orchid garden give you that secluded paradise you're looking for.

Why You Should Go

The lush greenery of the hilly landscape alone is enough to make you want to stuff your camera full of photos. And after a vacation's worth of gazing and exploring the landscape, you'll start calling Mother Nature your BFF.

Hotel Description

Hotel El Establo: Become One with Nature

Nestled in the misty cloud forest of Monteverde, El Establo is a place where you'll discover both tranquility and adventure. Surround yourself in the evergreen landscape that will pave the way to your peaceful sanctuary.

Step one: take a stroll through the private forest for the best lookout points with panoramic views, perfect for photo ops. Step two: meander your way back to take a look at the orchid garden while taking in the beauty of the green montain. Step three: for a cool down, take a dip in one of the temperature-controlled swimming pools before heading to Las Riendas Restaurant for an authentic Costa Rican lunch.

Still have energy that needs releasing? Head over to the tennis courts for a quick match, or challenge someone to a game of basketball or soccer. Don't forget to try the downhill mountain biking trail! Now that you're seriously tuckered out, reward yourself with a trip to the spa. Choose from a variety of massages, including the house special, Green Leaf Massage. While you're at it, indulge in a relaxing skin exfoliating treatment or get a mani/pedi too.

For a real treat, experience Restaurante Laggus and its fine selection of wine and cuisine. You can keep up the late evening chatter and laughter by the Laggus bar after dinner. Rest easily in the comfort of your room at the end of the day to gear up for the next liberating adventure that awaits you. The resort has its own tree top canopy tour that you've got to try before you round out your stay in the family-owned, peaceful Hotel El Establo in Monteverde.
