El Establo Mountain Hotel
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).
