Camino Verde B&B is a "Bed and Breakfast" style lodging opened in 2009 and located on the edge of Santa Elena. The B&B is laid out in the style of a family house and guests are encouraged to treat it as their home. The building was in fact once the owner\'s family home which gave inspiration to this "'Tica House" designed hotel.
The B&B is situated a 5 minute walk from the town centre of Santa Elena, but is far enough away for it to be quiet and have more rural surroundings. This is the perfect option for those who crave the quiet side of the countryside but who require the amenities provided in a town.
Camino Verde B&B comprises private rooms which sleep 2 to 4 guests. Four of the rooms have shared bathroom facilities and the rest are en suite. For the rooms with private bathroom the prices are $25 for one person, $35 for a double, triple $45 and quadruple $55. Rooms with shared bathroom costs $15 for a single and $20 for a double. All prices include breakfast and tax.
There is a kitchen and a communal area here which B&B guests are welcome to use. Here there is a computer with internet connection, plus Wifi is available for guests with routers in the communal areas of both the B&B and Tina\'s Casitas.
Breakfast is free for all guests and is served from 6am until 9am. However the staff are very flexible and an earlier breakfast or packed-breakfast can be arranged if you have an early morning tour, just give them prior warning the evening before. There are three options for breakfast: the first is the typical Tico dish of eggs, rice and beans and toast; the second is fried or scrambled eggs with toast; the third is a fruit platter served with toast. Real coffee and orange juice is also available for every guest.
Check-out time is 10am but guests are welcome to use the communal areas all day if they have a late bus to catch. Camino Verde also offers a luggage storage service.
The friendly staff on reception are also experienced tour agents so can give out impartial advice on all the local companies. Furthermore they can share their countrywide knowledge of Costa Rica and organise any ongoing travel. Upon arrival at the hotel they give all guests a map of Monteverde and mark out all the different tours and activities that various companies offer in the area. This way guests learn about what is available to them and can suss out how long they might like to stay for. If required they can create "pick and mix" packages of various activities to suit each individual.

Three friends and I decided to stay here for our trip to monteverde. While Camino Verde was in a good location, it was quite tricky to find because there weren't as many signs as other hotels in the area. The main photo for the listing was misleading, nevertheless Camino was simple, clean and very comfortable. We had a misunderstanding with the host about a tour that was mis-booked and not handled as we hoped. Otherwise overall a goo spot and breakfast was nice too.
Wonderful hosts, they were a pleasure to communicate with, unfortunately we were not able to make our trip to the BnB but we will surely be back!
Jose was a very kind host and all in all this was one of the best places we stayed at during our trip. Top location, fast laundry service, comfortable and clean and fully equipped rooms and further facilities. It felt very homely and we often enjoyed the great view from the generous conservatory with rocking chairs. The breakfast was delicious and the host was always quick to give us advice or directions and book tours unproblematically. Great and highly recommended accommodation.
One of the best host so far. Helpful, kind, knowledgeable, funny. The place was great and we had a great time staying there. Very recommended!
The B&B was absolutely perfect for my stay in Monteverde. Andres was the first to greet me when I arrived, and he was super friendly and helpful. He got me set up with tours for the next day, and personally showed me to my room. I even got an extra big room because the other small ones were booked! Although I speak Spanish, his English was on point and communication was excellent.
I would definitely stay here again, and I really enjoyed my stay. This was a great place to stay alone as a female traveling in Costa Rica.
Breakfast was delicious, and the bed was clean and comfortable.
What a great place! Right in the middle of the town and close to many restaurants. Everything is pretty much in walking distance. I loved the atmosphere and how everything could be set up right at the front desk! We went zip lining and canyoneering, so much fun def. recommend it! If you're a student don't forget to bring your ID as you get great discounts! Andres made us feel very welcomed and went above and beyond to provide us with a great time!
Clean room, central location, Andres & Jose were very helpful. My stay was short but sweet.
