Established in 1991 and situated in the cloud forest of Monteverde, El Establo Mountain Hotel is a family-owned hotel that combines Costa Rican and Quaker cultures for a unique experience. Guests receive a wide variety of amenities during their stay, but many start at the spa.

Green Leaf Spa focuses on making guests feel and look amazing and healthy. Start with a deep tissue or hot stone massage while receiving a 30- or 60-minute aromatherapy session to relax you and prepare you for the rest of your day. Make your skin feel fresher by ordering an exfoliation session that uses tropical coconut, seaweed and sea salts or orange, and then move on to a body wrap with clay, algae or coffee, among several other options. Facials, pedicures, manicures and relaxing baths are also available.

After you spend the day at the hotel's gorgeous pool or on its tennis courts, you'll have probably worked up an appetite. Luckily, El Establo Mountain Hotel operates two restaurants. Las Riendas features buffet-style and a la carte items in a range of traditional Costa Rican flavors as well as many international options. Guests who prefer a more elegant setting will enjoy Laggus, a two-story building that features a lounge, a bar area, a dining area and two spaces for private dinners or meetings. The building's balconies provide the best views of the surrounding property, and the restaurant serves only the finest cuisine. A daily breakfast buffet is available for those who need to amp up their energy for the day.

El Establo Mountain Hotel provides 155 smoke-free guestrooms and a conference center as well. Free wireless internet is available in the lobby. Childcare is provided for guests who need it, and an airport shuttle is available to and from the hotel. Don't forget to grab a coffee or tea in the common area before walking around the beautiful on-site gardens. A safe is available at the front desk to protect your most precious belongings as you go about your day. Daily housekeeping rounds out the amenities.

"Monteverde is by far my favorite place in Costa Rica. Every time I visit your beautiful country I try to go to different places and I always do, but I always also include Monteverde in my trip.
I cant even think of any other place to stay there then Establo. Where do I start: the views, the birds, amazing food, comfy rooms, inside tours and its close to Santa Elena and the reserve.
Thanks for so many good memories, I will always love this place."

"It's my second time in Costa Rica and Monteverde area is my favorite place to be. I know other hotels here but EL Establo is my favorite. Restaurant at the lake has the best views and atmosphere. Sunset from our room was breathtaking and I loved the night walk on the property. Canopy guides were friendly too. "
