Good3.0 / 5
Good condition but without the 'special something'
We had a great night's sleep on a very large bed, new bathroom with a separate bath and a very good shower, and enjoyed the lovely view from the pool over the cloud forest especially at sunset. On the downside, there's no wifi in the rooms, it seemed a bit under staffed (queues in reception, no one staffing the pool bar), and you can hear quite a lot of noise from the other rooms. Our room had no AC or fan but it was very cool when we were there. Also, it is such a huge site you need to get around by shuttle bus. Overall while it is a nice property, it felt like you could be anywhere rather than the special Costa Rica vibe and service I have had elsewhere (and for a lower price).

Great location & spacious rooms
Overall, a great hotel for the price. The rooms are clean and spacious and offer great views. The hotel is on the side of a mountain and the buildings are separate going up the mountain. We were lucky to be in the first building and closest to reception and the exit but I think I would have been less thrilled being higher up the mountain (which also requires a provided shuttle to come down). We ate at the "fast" restaurant twice purely out of convenience and it was fine, food was very average. The breakfast was incredibly overpriced for the quality, but it was our only option given the time our tour was leaving. The buildings and the property is EXTREMELY dark at night so keep in mind if you are arriving late. One major downside was no wifi in the rooms, only common areas such as reception and dining. From my observations as we were driving, there were not a ton of "nice" hotels in the area and I don't regret staying at El Establo.

Beautiful and Charming
Amazing resort style hotel! Sprawling grounds with beautifully appointed rooms. They have a little bit of everything on site: spa, pool, tennis court, restaurant, complimentary shuttle service to get around, they even have their own nature and night tours through the local rain forest so you don't have to leave the property if you didn't want to. Very helpful concierge service, however not always available as it appeared that they were slightly understaffed up front. Out room was wonderful, clean and comfortable with a beautiful view off the balcony. We booked a room with a second bed in the loft which was nice as everyone had their own space/privacy. It is good to note that wifi was only available in the common areas like the lobby, but not in the rooms.
