Lonely Planet review
With unique architectural styling and 14 hectares of trail-laced grounds, this long-standing lodge offers underwhelming standard rooms and gracious, light-filled suites, all hung with art that was painted by Paul Warren Smith, the hotel’s founder. There’s also a big covered pool (a rarity in these parts), two Jacuzzis, and ping-pong and pool tables, making it a nice place to come home to.
Located about 2km from the Monteverde reserve.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Fonda Vela and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Monteverde & Santa Elena.
