El Establo Mountain Hotel

El Establo Mountain Hotel

Establos monteverde hotel exterior

Costa Rica has a rich equestrian history. The country’s world-renowned saddle horses and working horses are on full display throughout Monteverde. And at the end of every temperate and nature-filled day, every horse returns to its stable — establo, in Spanish.

You won’t find hay or hooves in El Establo Mountain Hotel, but you will find yourself similarly intertwined with Costa Rica’s rich cultural identity. This mountain top hotel has everything, from rooms adorned with local woodwork to Costa Rican fine dining to nature tours that put the full power of Monteverde’s natural majesty on display.

The hotel has it all, and you can have it all, too. All you have to do is book your stay.

A Wide Range of Majestic Rooms

The deluxe double rooms, junior suites, standard suites, and honeymoon suites at El Establo all offer slightly different accommodations, but they all have something in common: They are perfectly suited to every traveler’s needs.

You’ll find balconies and terraces overlooking the surrounding Cloud Forest, high-quality mattresses, gorgeous furnishings, in-room coffee makers, and more in your room, enabling you to retreat from your busy Monteverde mornings and afternoons to absolute comfort in the evenings.

A Deep Bench of High-Quality Spa Services

El Establo features an on-site spa, The Green Leaf Spa. The Green Leaf rivals spa offerings in any major city. Massages include the classic deep tissue and hot stone options, as well as a signature massage called the Green Leaf, which is not to be missed.

Aromatherapy sessions of 30 or 60 minutes can relax and refresh, while tropical coconut, orange, seaweed, and sea salt exfoliation treatments can rejuvenate. Meanwhile, a wide variety of wraps are available to foster a deeper connection between your mind and your body. Other spa services include manicures, pedicures, facials, and a wide variety of mineral baths.

Multiple On-Site Fine Dining Options

Establos Monteverde Hotel Restaurant-

El Establo boasts not one, but two unforgettable dining experiences: Las Riendas Restaurant and Laggus Fine Cuisine.

Las Riendas specializes in traditional Costa Rican fare, ranging from faster food to fine dining. Buffet service is available for every meal, but guests can also choose from the a la carte menu to find a dish to suit any dietary need.

Laggus offers a jaw-dropping and mouth-watering menu of fine cuisine, but that’s not all that’s on the menu — aspiring sommeliers will find their taste buds electrified as they work through the impressive wine list. And those whose tastes include stunning views can enjoy a delicious meal on a balcony that boasts the best view of the El Establo property.

Unique and Unforgettable Monteverde Tours

Nature tours are a mainstay of travel in Monteverde. With the Monteverde Cloud Forest nearby and some of the best opportunities in the world to view vibrant wildlife, travelers to this region see getting out into nature as a standard part of their stays. But the tours available in Monteverde through Adventure Tours Costa Rica are anything but standard.

Take in the Cloud Forest with a fresh perspective on the Night Walk, or get a bird’s eye view of the canopy on the Tree Top Canopy Tour. Both tours take place on the El Establo property and are specially designed to deliver the best views and most exhilarating experiences.

A Mountain Hotel in Magical Monteverde

Then, of course, you have the mystical moments in nature on the hotel’s thrilling natural tours.
