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.
Stayed one evening in July, and Otto and Anja were very welcoming hosts. They have a lovely little piece of property with beautiful flora and fauna all around. They will happily give you much information about the surrounding area and suggest things to do. Really wish we could have stayed a little longer, but we'll happily return someday!
We had a lovely stay with Otto and Anja. They were great hosts and we enloyed out stay in Ojochal. Myself and my 10 year ols daughter went whalewatching from there. Lots of Dolphins, no whales. Our room was a little rustic as all the cabins were full. I would indeed stay there again.
Thanks O and A.
A picturesque tropical garden location with lots of birds. Very quiet and tranquil. Facilities are immaculate with fresh towels and daily cleaning. I opted to upgrade to one of their cabanas which have more room, nice cross-ventilation, and a kitchenette. The nearby 'supermercado' is quite well stocked for making your own meals or there are several restaurants close by. Otto & Anja are great hosts and willing to offer lots of advice on local tours and attractions.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
