Nestled in the misty emerald-green cloud forest of Monteverde, El Establo Mountain Hotel is one of the finest and most luxurious hotels in the region. Make your trip to the world-famous Monteverde cloud forest unforgettable with a stay at our spectacular mountain resort.
Long two-story room buildings rise in stair-step fashion up a verdant hillside, interspersed with native trees and lush flower gardens. All of our comfortable and elegantly appointed rooms feature either a private balcony or patio with the most magnificent views across the Monteverde forest, down the valley and out to the Nicoya Gulf with its islands and distant mountains.
Our half Costa Rican – half Quaker family-owned hotel was once a cattle farm, hence our name “El Establo,” meaning “The Stable.” We traded our cattle and stables for tourism in 1991, with a great desire to offer the highest quality service to all of our guests. We are deeply committed to protecting the environment, and actively promote sustainable and responsible practices that ensure minimum impact to our most valuable resource – Nature. We hold a “Certificate of Sustainable Tourism” from the Costa Rican Tourism Board.
El Establo Mountain Hotel offers you delicious local cuisine at our Las Riendas Restaurant and fine dining at our Laggus Restaurant. We have two heated covered pools, our fabulous Green Leaf Spa, tennis courts, basketball court, gym, internet room, and an events and conference center with capacity for up to 400 persons. We provide free shuttle service within the hotel property, secure parking, 24-hour security, Concierge and Tour Desk.
The private forest presents you with trails and the best look-out points with panoramic views. For the adventurous, right on our property we offer mountain biking trails, our “Tree Top” private canopy tour and our “Night Walk” tour.
All of our rooms – Deluxe, Suites, and Honeymoon Suites – are non-smoking. All rooms feature either two queen-sized beds or one king-sized bed with orthopedic mattresses, beautiful views of the Nicoya Gulf from either a private balcony or terrace, wall-to-wall carpeting, large bathrooms with hot water and a separate shower and bathtub, hair dryer, telephone, cable TV, security box, alarm clock, closet, mini-refrigerator, and rocking chairs.
