Very professionally runned hotel in the middle of the paradise. With the extraordinary beautiful garden and the pool we missed nothing.
Otto and his wife are fluent in just any kind of language and were just awesome.
Anya and Otto are extremely resourceful and were able to provide us with very good and appropriate recommendations for our family during our stay in Ojochal. The location is wonderful! They are next door to a French bakery, around the corner from a grocery store, near an amazing waterfall, close to remarkable beaches, and down the street from lots of restaurants. We appreciated their very good directions and homemade maps of the area. They pointed out places and activities that we never would have found on our own. They are very direct and were able to provide us with honest advice about everything. They know a lot about Costa Rica. They kindly upgraded us to the cabins and we were happy to have stayed there. There were two separate rooms (one with a closed door) and a "dining room/kitchen" space. There is a little kitchen in the cabins and we cooked most days/nights. There is also laundry available which was quite convenient. Anya immediately let us use a high chair for our baby which was also very helpful. The only thing I can say is that if you have a toddler - you have to be very careful around the pool and around the deck area of the cabins. I also wished that there was more of a communal space where you could regularly talk to other travelers. I wish that you could have a coffee at any time in the common space. We were there during the low season so it's possible it's more like that during busier times.
Hotel El Mono Feliz is a delightful little hotel up in the jungle, just beware if you are not an early riser, room #1 is beside the kitchen and breakfast starts at 7am.
Do not miss the jungle treehouse pizzeria next door, I was fortunate enough to be in there during an incredible rain downpour that lasted 2 hours.
Didnt enjoy the stay at Hotel El Mono Feliz. We arrive to find out that we had to pay an extra fee to use the airconditioner in the room. We were having a quiet been next to the pool and were told by the owner that we couldnt have any drinks next to the pool very rudely without any introduction at all by the guy. Very average stay do not recommend.
Great place ! Just one word : Perfect ! We will come back. Thanks to our kind hosts.
Location and hosts were lovely. Sadly did not have time to enjoy it for longer. Bird table attracted interesting array of birds at breakfast time. Swimmable waterfall nearby and good sized pool. Only missing was a cotton sheet to go under the blanket and note that rate does not include breakfast. Otherwise, all good and excellent value.
