El Establo Mountain Hotel is the largest and most modern and luxurious, by Costa Rican standards, hotels in the Monteverde Cloud Forest area. El Establo guests enjoy wonderful accommodations as well as great location – within a few miles of Santa Elena and Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and located in the town of Monteverde.
El Establo Mountain Hotel began as a working stable near the road owned by a local Quaker family and at that time offered a few budget rooms. But since that time the hotel has blossomed into one of the largest, well-appointed hotels in the Monteverde area with 155 very comfortable rooms. El Establo Hotel is set on 150 acres which is private farm land with 50% protected primary forest area. The lobby is still located close to the road but the rooms are located up on the mountainside giving guests amazing views of the Gulf of Nicoya and the Cloud Forest as well as amazing sunsets. A mini-van is provided as a shuttle up and down the hill for guests convenience.
All guests enjoy the complimentary breakfast in the lobby area restaurant each morning where on Sundays you will likely be joined by a number of local residents also as it is a popular Sunday-morning brunch restaurant.
El Establo Mountain Hotel is located 4 hours from San Jose and 3 ½ hours from Liberia, Guanacaste.
